I got a wilton power arm junior and an OEM Stihl clamping plate as a stihl template. I was trying to get it modified to accept all the other bar stud sizes and spacings from other brands as well as all the tensioning assemblies without having to remove them.

Don't see a lot of these available retail - might be something to work out and sell?

When I worked for Sears Service back in the early 1990's, there was an old tech who used a bicycle clamp stand contraption to hold weed wackers while he was working on them.  I used it a few times.  Pretty handy...

For older saws:
Tune the H side so that it 4-strokes (burbles) at WOT unloaded and just cleans up when under load.
When you lift cutting load, the saw should immediately revert to 4-stroking.  Fine tune the transition point for the wood you're cutting.

The Park Tools bicycle stand could easily be adapted to hold chainsaws too.
We should share what we know... someone may learn...
