Title: Solo 640 (Early) Information
Post by: Hoggwood on August 09, 2016, 03:00:23 pm
I am wondering if anyone has any documentation on this old saw.  IPL, owner's manual etc. for a late 60's early 70's Solo 640.  I picked one up and it has some interesting features and design. Thanks for any help.
