    I agree about the Partner 5000. I have 3, 5000 plus's 2 I bought and 1 I made from a huge pile of parts I have.
    I have enough to make another one but I will need a Chain Brake side cover. I have owned one of these since the mid 80's. I cut and saw up 6 cords of rock maple yellow birch and beach for fire wood every year.These saws are pretty awsome.
    Poulan made a saw similar to the 5000 soon after the buy out of Partner.What was that type of saw? I want to say 325 or somthing .My brother had one but it constantly was striping the recoil dogs off so he took a trade in on a Husky.Did they ever fix this recoil problem? The saw shop in my area admited it was a problem but at that time there was no fix. Oh well glad to see the Partners are apreaciated by other's as well.

    Yep the Poulan Partner 325 is 53cc 46mm bore where the 5000 was 44mm bore 49cc.
    I have one and there was a type 1 closed port like 5000 plus and type 2 was open port like early 5000 and 500.
    I have never had problems with recoil on my type 1. But I could see how it is possible, my type 1 has some serious psi.

    Hows this for a junk chainsaw?
    There is no "I" in team, but there is a "Me" if you want to jumble it up a bit...

    You know, that electrical tape doesn't look to safe.

    I'd love to see a video of that thing in action.

    Were the electrical tape is at on the cord , I would think that the cord got in the way while it was in action .

    If you think about it , That is kind of cool looking . Home Built (), I would assume , But Dang , Still pretty cool .

    Pretty interesting twist on an old circular saw

    I cant imagine how he was running it, but with the shape/location of the handle and trigger, it appears that it is upside-down in the photo. In which case it also appears that the chain is on backwards.

    Wheres the bar oiler BTW

    That saw above reminded me of the bicycle power saw I seen years ago.

    Really I dont think the chain turns fast enough on the pedaling to warrant a auto oiler. I would imagine someone pours a little lube on before the cut starts.

    That depends on how fast you pedal now doesnt it

    It appears (just guessing) that there is a 1:4 ratio from the pedals to the shaft, and another 1:4 from the shaft to the bar.

    total ratio of 16:1.

    To get 8000rpm's worth at the chain (just a good average for in-the-cut chainsaw), he would only need to pedal that thing 500RPM
