Willard....you ever think about digitizing your Chainsaw Age collection and selling the copies? I'd pay good money for '77-'92. I think there might be lots of interested parties. Unless somebody has already done this?

Kevin,
actually the former editor/production manager still has a warehouse of the magazine in archives, magazines that were never shipped to dealers or were returned to sender.
He sold off all the 1950s, 1960s and 1970's not sure about the rest.
I'm missing all of the 1950s, half of the 1960s and the years 1980, 1981 and 1988 issues
I lost contact of the guy, maybe he is doing a digital format of them .Sure would be nice and a moneymaker for him.
Willard,
I've got a friend who says he can get actual copies or reprints from the family that put out Chainsaw Age. I'll let you know how that goes. This all started when AS got hacked and lost all your posted scans of the March, 1991 Jonsered 2094 review.

Thanks for 'repairing' my memory too...it was Scotsco I heard about while loggin' on the west coast, not Tilton as I stated. I even saw their store in Portland back in the day. Didn't make the Jonsereds plunge myself until I was loggin' in CO in the very early 80's.

Thanks Kevin, I may have to make another call for those magazines if their still available.

I worked fior a Jonsered dealer in Edmonton for a time, I liked the fact they were easy to work on. Mostly 525 and 535 models but saw the occasional 630 and 920. Interesting that Peter Holmquist who I met on a few occasions was from Kinistino, my great uncle likely cut his hair. :D My great grandfather ran the pool hall after he retired from farming
Roy, here's a 1982 video of Peter Uno Husqvarna Holmquist when he was 56.
Good life story when he started logging in the 1940's.
In 1973 when he was 47 years old he won the world championship single buck crosscut event at Hayward, Wisconsin.

With his ability to speak Swedish and owning a major Husqvarna dealership (distributor?) in the PNW the factory engineers listened to him about what design changes etc. were needed.

I inherited a 920 super. It doesn't have the chain brake band on it. Looks like the rest of it's still intact. Does anyone know if different models used the same band? I can't find much info on it. I had a 70E back in The Day.

RedMax is now owned by Husqvarna as well. They are shedding their box store lines, lots of volume but little or no profit and unfortunately J-red is taking it on the chin too. Except ffor Stihl, Echo and  Makita they pretty much control the hand held power equipment market.
