Fell timber in the North west for 25 years. Never seen a saw that didn't need a little help. A least a muffler mod. Ported saws  run a lot stonger and seemed to last as long. If our saws blew after six months you said o well. Nine months, that was a really good saw. If you had it a year that better be a back up saw or the bullbuck (Fallen boss) was breathen down your neck.
Admire what you guys do. If it was more serious than a carb rebuild or maybe rings it went to the shop. Helped to have a good shop.

Some of us are hopeless gear heads that have done pulling tractors ,quarter mile hot rods ,fast boats and any number of things .If it's got an engine we really can't help ourselves than  to make it run better than those who designed it .It's not really a bad thing .I mean we could collect postage stamps or something . ;)

We should share what we know... someone may learn...
That knowledge can live after us... and that "Pays It Forward".

for myself ive been porting saws for 12 years now,got some saws to play with and do competitions,but i was doing firewood with regular,bone stock saws. then last year i was thinking about that,why i got quick saws for the fun,then have to run slow saws for work.....

then i did some woodsport. its the day and night. add a little fun of cutting 16 inches

everything is fair now

From what I gather many of the PNW crowd will run a saw for a season then get a complete rebuid and run it one more season .

I can't quite undestand how you could wring a saw in a season but then again I've never cut under those conditions .
