I agree!!

Not worth the money if your going to use it for roofing.


The other things like I have demonstrated like cutting oak curves etc its perfect  cutting using the rail can be very handy.

Well i used jmbs sword saw today, my conclusion is that he needs to buy a cross cutting chain and the the bar imho is a little short for what we used it for but dont think the saw could handle much more. Also using it to gang cut rafters it tilts the wrong way as it sits on the offcut whcich means your cut starts to twist as you go along. Fine piece of kit but dont think i could invest that amount of money into it the way it is fordoing what i want to do with it.



Dean, couldn't you just turn the job over in your mind (or the boards if they already had some other joints cut) so that the pointy side was up? Then the guide rail could have stayed on the solid boards.

I have the 200mm sword saw.
The bar is not getting lubrication. That is despite the bar being clean and the 2 holes are not clogged. The oil pump is working as oil flows out.
The oil flows around the bar face and inside and around the plastic support surface, but wont go into the bar holes as the chain is always dry.
Yes I tested the red knob that selects oil 1,2 and full position.
Im using standard bar oil, even tried thinning it with kero.
NOTHING WORKS!!!
What is there left to consider anyone???
