I'd say very early spring or autumn. Just try to mind their nests and you'll be good to go. Some bird don't even fly South anymore because of global warming so there's a good chance that you'll need to pay attention even in the colder months. Then again, I don't know where you're from so they might as well be gone during autumn/winter :D That's a good time I'd say!

Chainsaws and Pole pruners / Re: Chainsaws for the domestic user

It depends on what domestics users want to do I think and how much they need chainsaws? Someone who rarely saws anything shouldn't need a chainsaw at all in my opinion

Chainsaws and Pole pruners / Hardening tool steel for chainsaws
« on: December 14, 2017, 09:12:54 AM »
Hello everyone,

I was wondering if any of you guys has ever hardened tool steel? Hardened or case hardened, I'm pretty sure that's the same thing.

I want to avoid abrasion damage on my tools but unfortunately, it's quite common when it comes to saws. Even the ones I spend a load of money on. And it is almost always JUST the saw blade that breaks and wears. I've never had any problems with the engine. So I was wondering if case hardening could prevent that?

I have found some techniques that allegedly help with abrasion damage, like this one right here. But I'm not sure if you can case harden tool steel with this technique as well? Does anyone know?

Or does anyone know any other techniques to improve abrasion resistance?? I'm sick and tired of my chainsaws becoming dull and breaking off. I do have a business to run so any information would help, thanks!

I have worn the protector light one for years now and am really happy so far. Which one do you like best?
