WOW! Fish said it all and then some! ;D

Those that want to set up their saws by "sound"....usually end up with scoring of the piston and cylinder. Buy a good reliable tachometer, then tune! I have seen many a good saw go to ruin by those that relied on "set to sound" method of tuning. In fact, the shop where I retired from, all new Stihl saws came with a nice little orange handled screw driver...we actually had several hundred of them all bunched up like a bouquet of flowers in a big vase....in the shop area! All for the simple reason we didn't want the "new owners" tuning their new saws! When we sold a new saw, we serviced it before the new owner got it into his hands. Hardly ever a time we had to actually "tune" a NEW Stihl product! I can't say that about the others we sold or serviced! ;)
We also had a saying in our shop with "some" warranty claims that came in....warranty doesn't cover stupid!
