The bumble bee sizes are neat in a way .Probabley the best is either an 020T or 200T but I've seen some Poulans they made scoot . With the exception of the two Stihls I mentioned little saws can be had cheap .

Some ingenuity and a little imagination they can be a lot of fun .A miniture cookie cutter that won't break the bank .

I built a piped ms200 years ago, it turned just shy of 20,000 rpm and cut quite Well!
Used it for a week or so on a few tree removals from the aerial lift till the 2nd degree burns took their toll!!

I do recall seeing picture of that little saw .RB I guess had a little Husky that was piped and rattled the windows a tad bit from the tree tops much to his amusement .

It was some time ago at a GTG Gypo and Big Dave had a pair of micro pipers which got me interested in little hot rod saws .I did pipe a mini Mac which did okay considering it was a mini Mac .

Even on a muffler saw and a tiny one at that there is sill some amount of improvement that can be done which is surprising over stock configuration .Tiny little things are kind of a challange to rework the ports though unless you have fingers the size of soda straws .
