That is true Tim but I will be getting the burrs out.   Maybe removing a little aluminum.

And what may I ask, is wrong with welding plastic?

I've had huge machinery pieces that were welded fabrications of UHMW white nylon plastic sheets. Where I worked they would also weld up broken polypropylene pieces. They had a propane torch and plastic welding rod.

You can weld up gas tank cracks with the cheaper string trimmer line
We should share what we know... someone may learn...
That knowledge can live after us... and that "Pays It Forward".

That sounds like it is out of my league.

I also wonder now if a 450 motor complete (removal transfers etc, different clutch and drum set ups)  would slip in the 5020 crankcase out of curiosity.

Just thinking down the road when the 2 get much much older and more turn up dead.

You'll have to try a gas tank with some trimmer line some time? That'll be your league. Besides you'll nothing to loose in that situation.

While we are on tanks, trimmer line works great to jam in a screw hole to make the screws take hold sort of like using match sticks in a wood screw hole.

You always come up with good ideas.   Good tip.

Well I received my 5020 today so I will get to see first hand what this saw is made of.


Have you run it stock yet?  How much did you have to change the tune from being 32:1 and in midwest?

No I have not ran it yet, but you give me an idea.   Maybe a before and after video.
