ordered 92 link, received 102 link chain
« on: November 25, 2003, 07:32:15 PM »
I ordered 3 loops of 92 link chain for a 28" bar and they send me 3 loops of 102 links. Could I go to a local chainsaw dealer and have the chain made smaller and what could that cost. Should I send it back for an exchange or take a 1 hour drive to the store to take care of it. I get tired of ordering things that someone messes up the order.   Dave

Dave, considering the investment you have in saws you might want to order a chain breaker and a spinner.

Kevin, I think you are right on investing in a chainbreaker and spinner. I'll have to look into that.  Good idea.. Thanks  Dave

Orderin' a longer bar won't work, they'll send him the wrong gauge.  :)

I'm not aware of a bar that even takes 102 drivers. :-/

30" Husky/Jonsered bars take 102dl.....

your local dealer may knock them down for you for next to nothing...or as everyone else has mentioned...maybe its time to look for a breaker and spinner:D

Thanks Dennis.

I paid $4.50 to have 1 chain cut from 102 to 92... 92 is what it calls for to go on  a 28" bar. Dave

The Stihls run 98 dl on a 30" bar typically....

4.50 seems like too much money for 30 seconds of work...if my customers come in with a problem like that....if its the same type chain...I just swap them out...doesn't hurt anyone....

I think that buying chain from Dennis might prove costly when you factor in international shipping, but if you want a saw modified, Dennis is a good guy to go to.

Hi Dennis
You don`t owe me anything, but if you are interesed, I`ll send my 385 up to be taken to the next level. The experimental 353 was stolen, I`d be willing to bet that my lovely ex-wife knows something of it`s whereabouts since theft other than by her or her demon spawn daughters and boyfriends doesn`t normally occur here.

BTW, the MS260 Pro that you built is running great and is my father`s neck to neck favorite with the 357xp that you built. Since I first put the 357 in his hands he has apparently experienced a renewed interest in chainsaws.  ;D

Dennis G,
Are you going to rework all the saws that fell short?
If so you are going to be a busy man!

Hi Hotsaw

First, let me welcome you to the forum in case noone else has.

Second, do you have any Dennis G. saws? Maybe you could PM me.

Thanks, Russ

HAHAHA....Joe...if that is your real name...bring any saw you built anytime and I will run with you...

And just for your info...The 385 in question with Russ is one of the first ones I did, and didn't know all the tricks to it....Russ has been a very good customer to me, as well as a friend..and I want to rework it....
