All demonstrations & techniques, if followed, are solely your own responsibilities, The tutor nor the UCCG are responsible for your actions. Hi All, What I am doing in this tutorial is Tool Tips. I will be starting with tips to help you with keeping your chainsaw operating properly, power tool description with a few helpful hints & will be open to chat about the advantages of one over another. There are an amazing amount of tools available “out there” & it is tough when choosing, what to buy first. I will present what I have found with the various types of tools & accessories for each. I have broken this tutorial into more than one presentation as there is more material than possibly can even fit in a number of hours so I will be running at least a part 2 in the near future.
Tools for chainsaw tips: Redmax GZ4000 chainsaw with an 18” 1/4 tip carving bar. Red Indian & grey oil stones & lubricant. Small machinist square or similar. Step 1: Gas & oil tips. This is what I found has worked best for me when dealing with gas & oil for my saws. I use a 3 gallon gas can & mix this only, each time then transfer it into 3 – 1 gallon cans with the extension spouts. This way it is very easy & controllable to pour. If you mix too much gas at one time then the octane drops as time passes & you are wasting your money & losing the performance out of the gas also. I switched to the premium smokeless mix oil about 9 months ago & it is mixed at a 100:1 ratio. As you see in the second pic it is a product by Lazer, with a design that you squeeze the jug & it moves the oil to the section at the top & gives a correct measurement every time so there is never a mistake when mixing oil. So when I mix the 3 gallons I use high test or the highest octane available that is ethanol free & 3 measurements of mix oil per 3 gallons of gas. Always keep containers sealed for two important reasons! First, if the jug is open it gets dust & debris in it & when you look at an open container of gas you see the fumes rising is the octane vaporizing out of it so if thee container is open you are wasting your money paying for high octane gas & the saw will not run near as good. Clean & sealed is the trick with your gas handling!
This is Canola oil & I switched all my saws to Canola about 7 months ago now & have found numerous advantages using the Canola oil.
