I may have been born on a turnip truck, but I didn't just fall off.

The 2100's are great saws and they realy like mods.
Their are tons of them in the saw racing world that still win often.
Just beware alot of them have been run hard and put away wet.

Yeah, I found it after I bid on another (smaller) saw.  :-/

Hi Bobcat

"Put away wet" is a term referring to abuse or no maintenance of an item. Started with horses who were put away wet with sweat rather than wiped/brushed down, watered and blanketed. There are several variations on the same theme that I have heard.

I believe that Hotsaw_racer has unwittingly bought one of those abused 2100s advertised as pristine. You pay your money and take your chances on eBay.
