Re: Saw Chain Source

It ain't sexy, but if you live in the midwest, and use 'consumer' chains, Menard's usually has the best prices on pre-made Oregon loops.  I get that some guys want 'pro' chains, etc.  But I don't mind the reduced kickback chains, and prefer it on my smaller saws. I don't use enough chain to justify buying it in bulk

I was looking for some 78DL loops of .325 pitch narrow kerf chain (Oregon 95VP, Husqvarna H30, etc.).  If I buy it in the consumer marked, clamshell packages as 'G78' at Menard's, it is HALF the price that Home Depot, Northern Tool, and other retailers charge.  Lowes does not carry this size loop: Menard's is still priced at about 60% of their closest (80DL) sized loop. They also have 'ship-to-store' options for some loop sizes not stocked locally.

Sometimes it goes on sale for another 11% to 15% off, if you are patient.  Cheap enough that I have thought about buying some loops and re-spinning them to the size I needed.
