Funny thing I never figured out on the earlier 10-10's .Some ran fairly smooth but some after 5 minutes you could not feel your finger tips .

We used foam pipe insulation on the handles which tamed them quite a bit .Never the less McCulloch made a million of them .I would not even venture a guess how much firewood those and the XL Homelites have cut in the last 45-50 years .Many of both brands are still getting it done today .Two classics .

Limbsaver has a very nice handle bar wrap that works very well at calming the vibration.  Available in several colours as well, even camo.

Looking good Jerry.

For older saws:
Tune the H side so that it 4-strokes (burbles) at WOT unloaded and just cleans up when under load.
When you lift cutting load, the saw should immediately revert to 4-stroking.  Fine tune the transition point for the wood you're cutting.
