Re: Saw project

FWIW the very best deals I've ever gotten  except for perhaps a few saws from a forum have came from dealers .

So far I've gotten a Stihl 200 T for tweny bucks and had it running within a hour.An 038 AV with a broken handle for 45 and recently a good running 024 for 50 .

From one forum a relatively rare old beast of a 2100 Huskey with a bad coil for 90 and a Stihl 038 Mag for 50 which I souped up .

You have to find a dealer that just wants to peddle them rather than repair them .A good many of the saws really don't have much wrong with them but you have to know what you're looking at to determine if it's worth fiddling with .

Craigs list is another option and unlike flea bay it's one on one ,just you and the seller .If the deal stinks you just walk away . Flea bay you have to deal with first the unknown and secondly "shill " bidders who just drive the price up .
