This is a very good idea for what I need.


I would like to continue my fence project but I need to cut mortises much faster in 6" square posts. I would buy a new saw and do this to it. I saw a setup in a hardware store
that did mortises for $900.00 ish some years ago and I have not seen any more since.
I think I would need 35 post times 3 holes = 1 0 5 holes.

1 new skil saw
2 bars bolted together
small chain the carving type
simple plunge method

No safety police allowed

I did another chainsaw project that puts a electric polesaw on the end of a 15' extension pole and then you add another extension pole for a total of 26'. It is a little wild but safer than climbing. Proto type # 2 fell from 20', it was a reclaimed trash can saw ( RIP )

Took this in on trade Echo CS 702EVL 71cc PHO. Guy was running a 8T and 24"

I put a 7T and a 16" on it to test. Holy cow these things run good. 8T will be going back on. Dang she sounds and runs good. Freaking beast in the cut.

Here is how it looked before wiping off.

definitely treasure, not junk.:thumbsup:

Rebuild done with new piston kit and muffler mod. Needed a bunch of little things replaced but that is normal wear parts.

This one could be hard to let go with it's 12.4lb PHO weight and 62cc. Very impressed with the first few test cuts set real rich.

after pics. I have before muffler mod pics if needed.

I've got an MS360 that I picked up with a scored piston. with just a little cleanup work That saw runs freaking great and I can't let it go. It still isn't as good as a screaming 262xp but if you only had to have one awesome all around saw, that would be it....
