    I saw a co worker put half the amount of required oil in our chainsaw gas can. I told him he needed more oil and he surprised you had to use a certain mix.
    He thought some oil was good enough.

    That's what I did with our work saw because sometimes it was not used for long periods.

    Best tool I ever bought! If you have fillister screws to deal with, this is the one. Even has a variable ratcheting function.

    Cheers,

    I do that with my four-stroke lawnmower - I just run it dry at the end of the season. It's a Honda and has a petcock so during the season when I'm done mowing I shut off the petcock and run the mower until it stops. My chainsaw is electric - I have a small yard.

    The Left- Handed Monkey Wrench

    If you've ever seen "The Sand Pebbles" with Steve McQueen, it's based on a book by Richard McKenna. McKenna was a sailor for 20 years and died young, but in addition to The Sand Pebbles he published a book called The Left Handed Monkey Wrench and Other Short Stories. In the title story, a sailor who's a wizard of a machinist decides to make a monkey wrench with left handed threads for interesting reasons...a great story, a great book and a great writer who died far too young.
