Well I ported it last night  :o.

I have to wait for a round ball stone to add the bevel back in but I think it turned out good for a first porting job. I know it has a few flaws but over all it is as good as I can personally manage.

Well I got the jug back from having someone mill it down for me. I have a ball hone on order to help the rings seat quicker. I got the ball stone in so I can bevel ports now so I will be doing that this evening. I don't think I will get to start the saw up this evening probably most likely is tomorrow.

Go easy with that hone else you'll grind right through the plating .

I was going to do it like this video suggested

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u9mZClv5Nfo

Will that be too much?


And I fired it up last night with the old rings and this thing is very snappy, it has great throttle response and very good compression. I have not tested the compression yet but I am willing to guess its over 180 psi.

I only ran it for 2 1 min cycles and I didn't snag a ring as of yet so I think I did good? If I didn't I would have assumed something would have happened by now but maybe not.  I still need to muffler mod it at some point.

The ball hone is back ordered but its no big deal I am going to just run it until it comes in then pull the jug to re-check everything and hone it, and put new rings in. 

I ran about 1/2 tank through the saw last night and I am very happy with how it cuts. It has good throttle response and seemed to pull like a freight train in the wood. I am hoping to test it out in some larger wood soon. I will make sure to grab video of it then.

If it runs great with the old rings why change them ? It will take a while for new rings to seat you know .

The rings are pretty worn already so I know it will take a while for the new rigns to seat and I will run the saw for a while like this until the hone comes in.

I made a quick video of the saw making its first large cuts last night.  I only ran it for a few min and still have it set a tad fat.   It was running an 8 tooth rim, 28" bar and full skip oregon jgx chain. Roughly a 32" elm is what I am cutting in this video.
