    Removing stuck bearing races with.... Peanut butter????
    Matthew Olson

    Here is my previous vid, where I used plumbers putty....

    https://youtu.be/fJ_jHnhv7tM


    The key here is just to use *something* as a temporary ball cage while you are doing the pulling of the bearing. Once the balls are spaced around the races they hold the inner and outer races together, and you can pull on either and it'll hold.

    Here is the "how its made" video... it showed me how the balls get into the bearings and gave me the idea for reassembling the bearing in order to pull it. skip to the 3:15 mark

    https://youtu.be/b6svVy1lYOA

    i'll bet bubble gum, sour cream, heavy grease and lots of other substances work just fine :) but ya need something extra in there otherwise the balls will get away from you.

    VICTA 18" CHAINSAW 82V Model 1696787
    Oz Tool Talk



    Published on Apr 30, 2017
    The VICTA 82v chainsaw is a remarkable unit, it is scary to think how good this battery race may get. To be able to cut 8" Stringybark hardwood logs with ease and slice through 18"+ hardwood logs in rivers is remarkable. With absolute convenience of carrying nothing but a bottle of bar lube this saw could just change the way you view chainsaws.

    Here is part 3 of the huztl 372 clone build. This is my approach to porting. It is by no means extensive, exhaustive, or THE way to do things. Its my approach. How I do it. I am always learning. So be gentle in the comments!

    I decided to stick with the 50mm cylinder head because thats what the kit came with. Once I decided on a base gasket delete to set squish, I can get timing numbers, and start porting...which is what this vid is about.

    Spoiler, as of May 7 2017 the saw runs very poorly. Sometime is wrong somewhere and I do intend to investigate and remedy the issue.

    Stay tuned for part 4

    May 15th I put a different coil on, it runs better, but its still not up to par... I think I need to examine compression next

    Here we have some interesting middle weights for a little comparison/contrast.
    The video is self explanatory. I did refer to the piston letter size "A, B, C" as numbers. That was because it is there diameter differential (size in number form) the "A, B, C" actually represents and what the concept was attempting to show and/or reference.
    Apologizes for the stammering/slurring of speech, a lot to get out sans the use of que cards....

    Disclaimer: ladies and gents, this is a CHAINSAW, working with, building and fiddling with these can KILL YOU, I am not and will not be responsible for improper technique or accidents even remotely relating to this video, please view for entertainment purposes only.

    Up today is a husky 350 that i've torn down.

    Back to basics folks. Saws are only worth so much money. This one is worth 250-300 in nice rebuilt shape. So if I paid 200 for it, there's no room for anything.... I didn't. Got it for $60. So at that price point I can put some hours into the saw and bring it back to life... and more reliable life than before. Get em cheap guys.

    Top 3 things to do, #1 ...replace the intake clamp with the metal oem one. this is cheap, and will save you the likelyhood of a catastrophic air leak
    #2.... reseal the bearing cap...this means tearing the saw down to its most basic parts, but again, will save you the air leak. use threebond 1184 for this union... not loctite 515/518 ....they don't stick to plastic
    #3.... muffler support ...so the muffler doesn't burn a hole in the oil reservoir......


    lots of optional stuff, but here I opted for a flat top piston for increased compression and some machining on the bearing cap to tighten up squish. there is more on this in other vids. i'm going to use this cylinder head as demo for some poor mans porting techniques in subsequent vids....

    thanks all for now folks!

    Got a little further with the poor mans porting stuff. well, not further...sideways. It worked, toasted 2 right angle heads, and I bought burrs that were $32 each. ... so... gotta figure something else out. I think the marathon lab setup is perfect for this, but the right angle heads are super weak. ... lots more research to do to figure out how to do this on the cheap.

    Dolmar ps7900 Chip Management
    hotsaws101



    Published on Jun 11, 2017
    Here we have one from the archives that was once lost but is now found!
    This viewing is regarding the chip management (or lack there of) on the Dolmar/Makita platform starting at the 6400/6401 to the 7900/7910/7901.
    As mentioned I can not even run the Stihl Klassic or the now discontinued X - chain from Oregon. Even when the bark is super tight (winter months) there are issues with the chips clearing as shown in this video.
    I found that even the more narrow cutting kerf, chisel chain from Oregon to be problematic when sporting both a new chain and bar.
    I am currently available for port work an custom saw modifications. If you are interested please shoot me an email.

    Besides equipment, Samuel Luria commented on my last video and made me realize, I seriously need to get some insurance if I'm going to be doing this. Shit can happen to anyone, at anytime.

    I predict a lot of heat in the comments below. For the record I have no problem with people having their own opinions on chainsaw safety and starting techniques. Do what you gotta do!

    Please watch our other video for the basics of operating a chainsaw. https://youtu.be/kzuijFHquQk
    These are dangerous and fun tools to run.

    Stihl ms461 Insane-O-ized SS

    Published on Jun 13, 2017
    Here we're on location with the first test drive of a NY state bound 461 sporting the reshaped combustion chamber and enhanced flow tricks that I know about ( SS ), in addition to the standard insane-o zipkit. The saw barks and speaks for itself.
    My chain isn't the greatest but the saw is "bad"! And yah, pinched bucking it - still just a man here.......

    Insane-O-ized Dolmar ps7910 Sporting a K&N
    hotsaws101



    Published on Jun 12, 2017
    Here we have a ps7910 Dolmar, fitted with the standard insane-O zipkit & fresh out of the shop. We obviously running her a little rich since this is the maiden voyage. I had a little more than 12% of a plan and fitted this saw for the testing with a Hi-Rev Saw Works design velocity stack and K&N air filter.
    I 'm pretty pleased at how it runs in a blubbering rich state of tune.
    As mentioned, it is the same chain as the 375xp video from around Christmas with a fuzz more relaxed grind (no material was added to the stops) and the chain cuts well. A little more refining and the chain would be a killer.
    If you are interested the Dolmar velocity stack and K&N style air filter system, port work, or custom saw modifications, please shoot me an email.

    You must be trained professionally for this. Being an arborist is a dangerous job. Tim shows his skills as a tree climber with many years experience.

    Sort of my "gut" reaction condensed into this video when I started tearing into the new Husqvarna's a few years back. This is just my "out side looking in" reaction. I fully admit this is random and could be COMPLETELY off base. Depending on the reaction..It could be taken down as well. This video won't be for everyone....for many it will just be...Blaa...Blah...Bla-Bla Blaaaah......:)

    JUST an opinion. Nothing more.

    A special thanks to Mr. King Cord for allowing me the use of his 461 for a wee bit of a stretch while "life" happened.
    No answers on a couple of front except I can now pronounce the Italian manufacturer's name correctly.
    Thinking the rest is self explanatory.

    If you are looking for aftermarket chainsaw parts, please support my channel by buying from:

    Disclaimer: ladies and gents, this is a CHAINSAW, working with, building and fiddling with these can KILL YOU, I am not and will not be responsible for improper technique or accidents even remotely relating to this video, please view for entertainment purposes only.

    Here is part 5 of the huztl 372 clone build. Just building up the saw, putting some of the components on here.

    Stay tuned for the finale!


    Spoiler, as of May 7 2017 the saw runs very poorly. Sometime is wrong somewhere and I do intend to investigate and remedy the issue.

    May 15th I put a different coil on, it runs better, but its still not up to par... I think I need to examine compression next

    June - cases i decked on the bridgeport, cylinder head is sanded, squish is optimized...comp at 165 and the saw runs better...its currently with my dad for eval.
