First things first, got a 2095 that got smoked doing x-tra hard duty on a mill.(Not me) Ordered a top-end-budget style, bottom so far checks ok. any suggestions on stuff to do while its torn down to the seals? and whats with the giant spacer on bottom of cyl? can you just thin it some for best squish? you guys are gonna hate me by the time its over, so many questions. And how do you get into stock muffler? or just get a gutted one to mod, plan to mig or tig a sip off a old 12ga bbl mod as outlet (may do side by 16 or 20 after math on ex port final area) at clutch side 45degree out finished parallel to face.

As somebody that has milled a bit, keep mods mild but open the exhaust up a bit. It's all about heat management. Aux oiler on the bar helps too. Also remember to let the saw idle before shutting off... and try not to run it out of fuel.

I find not spilling bar lube and fuel helps keep the saw clean and cool better too.

my plan exactly, enough to make you look twice, not enough to be tempermental...

so is there a thread here on the muffler mod? Something else I have read is advancing timing, built a offset key out of a Tecumseh flywheel key that reads 14-17 degrees btdc too much? or worth a try? will work on some pics.

I don't think I'd advance the timing at all. Build more heat and beat on the bottom end more. If you need more power when milling...you need more cubic inches.

If I had put all the money I have spent on chainsaw milling in a jar... could buy a band mill and have something decent.

The speed of pushing a chainsaw through a log vs. the speed of a cheap band mill... well it's no comparison.

Anyone need some milling gear? Granberg 30", Granberg MiniMill, Aux Oiler, 394xp, 32" bar, 37" bar, etc..??

Honestly I'll keep my junk around.. but as a reminder not to do that again.. it's a fun hobby thing... or if you are just making small things or 8-10" diameter stuff. Big stuff is so slow, especially in SE hard wood.

The original was offset also, marked with a very small 2,
