 ;Dmost of the time i end up with the saw that the person said was running fine when they put it away--last month. only to find it hasen't been run in close to 20 years ;D then, it needs more money thrown at it than it's feasibly worth just to become a parts machine. i gots lots of them. some have even come in handy :) most don't.
when I grow up, i wanna be an adult.

Yeah I got some of those too but they were freebees .Most times there isn't much wrong with them or if there is toss them in a box .Sooner or later the parts pop up .Then the only thing you need to do is remember where you put the other parts .Which can be a challange at times  I might add .

At present I've managed among other things to missplace a set of seals for a 281 Husky .I of course put them in a place I'm sure I'd remember .Great that limits it to about a hundred different locations . :)

 :'( Tell me about it. I bought 2 parts for the envoy in Dec when I had extra cash on hand. A/C digital module and wiring pigtail. Total $80.  Still  :-X looking for them to install when the season warmed up.  >:(
