Did you see any complete saws ?? Probaly not many. Parts are gettting hard to find for those 015's. They are probaly worth more in parts than a complete saw is worth. Fuel lines are tough to find. A fuel line from a an 025 is rumored to work.

E-bay seems to have more parts than saws these days or at least it seems that way to me. Considering the cost to ship a saw and E-bay 's little seller fee's parts are probaly making more money for some people because their sure seems to be more saw salvage guy's these days.

There were some complete ones or mostly intact .Now those 029's I simpley won't waste my time on  even though some could be salvaged .
I'm not saying they are a bad saw it's just there isn't much you can do with a clam shell engine .

Something like the 034 is getting old enough people don't fool with them so that one has some cheap possibilities .

I probabley go through that guys junk about 4 times a year .He thins the herd every so often and takes a truck load of parts to a local vocational school to let the kids fiddle with them .

One of these days I'll find an 066 .It's not if but rather when . ;)

Actually I really need another saw to tinker with about as much as I need another butt hole .If it's cheap though and mostly intact I'll snatch it up .If not no big deal .

An 015 rear handle model was the first small saw I owned. It was well used when I got it, but after replacing a few parts, I used it for several years with a 12" bar and cut quite a bit of wood with the bar buried. It was definitely a backsaver.
