Canadian Newbie


Hello Everyone
Well I thought I had just about joined every useful forum on the net till I found this one.It looks like i could get a bunch of questions answered here.I hope to be able to help out as well but I'm not a tradesman but consider myself handy.I like the do right approach as you end up doind it over if you don't.I collect chainsaw's, like doing what I can around our place and a little hunting when I can.I like garage sales that have tools to offer.Anyway that's about it for now,I'm going to move on to a forum here as i need to get a pressing question answered concerning painting .so see you all around
Thanks
scarrylarry P.S, I guess I should ask how long before I can post a question?

Just reading through your posts here Larry and want to reiterate, don't be offended by lack of response in the intro forum. You will get lots of good advice from some very knowlegable people here. I have been a member for a couple of months and have learned a great deal. I also wish to do my home improvements right especially since I have uncovered a lot of previous owner mistakes in my house. I don't want some future owner of my house saying "what a dumb ass that guy was." Not to mention, I want it to be safe for my family.

Welcome! OK, now you have more than one person welcoming you...that's a new record!

So where in B.C? If you collect chainsaws - not likely to be in Vancouver. I'm over in the Gulf Islands as you can tell.

You don't need to wait to post a question. No silly rules here like that.

Just a really great bunch of gals and guys.

I am located 45 minutes east of Vancouver.There are trees out here,LOL!I have been doing more collecting than cutting but plan on doing a bit when my bum shoulder let's me,and when I have time.I also need to do more chainsaw repairing than collecting.Chainsaw collecting is actually quite big.I found out how big searching for parts for my first one.Not sure if you are allowed to post other websites on here, if anyone knows I will gladly put up a couple of sites I am on that are HUGE! I tend to look at things that have interest not mindless stuff.Always willing to learn.Gulf Islands you say,Man that's living!

I have a couple of old chainsaws around here that I no longer use. An old McCulloch that the old man gave me and a Homelite, which used to be my saw of choice until I got Husky's.

You'd be welcome to them if you wanted, we would just need to arrange a meet somewhere over on the lower mainland next time I come over.

Thanks very much for the offer Cocobolo! Let me know the next time you are planing a trip over here hopefully we can try and work something out.There is a huge rivalry between Stihl boys and the Husky boy's they are always ribbing each other.Then there is the Dolmar fellas and the Solo fellas.That's just between the saws that are still made, then there is the old saws that are not manufactured anymore that also have a following.
