Gold saws What happened to this Stihl
« on: December 15, 2014, 07:01:48 pm »
Gold plated Stihl Lightning

There was a long article in the Aug 1965 issue of Chain Saw Age magazine titled The Andreas Stihl Story. The article mentioned that in 1962 the 200,000th Lightning was made. The saw was gold plated and was presented to a logger in Australia who had been with the same outfit for 30 years and had been using Stihl saws for 25 years.

There were no more details given, whether it was actually gold-plated or what kind of plating they used.

 Lets all look for it its out here in Australia somewhere
I am a idiot so my pics disappeared.
