Got my copy and have read through most of it: Barnacle Parp's Chainsaw Guide: Buying, Using and Maintaining Gas and Electric Chain Saws.

Pretty comprehensive for it's time.  But, as you note, much of it is outdated as saws, sources, and knowledge have changed in the last 36 years.  He is very opinionated, and has quite the pro-STIHL bias.  But still an interesting read, especially considering how little I knew about chainsaws in 1978!

The information on older saws could still be helpful, as well as other approaches for doing things.  Also interesting to see some of the same discussions/disagreements we are still having today.  Pretty cheap as a used book, and apparently, some PDF versions may be available.

Thanks for pointing it out.

Philbert
