  1. Jim, usedtoolman had made some of those spark plug covers using Plasti Dip. It's for rubber coating tool handles and available in black. He may have done a thread on the old forum about it and they came out very nice

    Orline Cutoff saw

    Bought this as a bunch of pieces but it has all the important stuff like the gearbox with the pulley, the little V-belt, correct gas tank, ect. ect. Really just missing the engine, hardware and couple of small pieces. The locked up gearbox is soaking now but it seems like it's just the grease is hard as a rock. It should free up. It came in dirty but was easy to clean since it was already apart. Paint isn't too bad on this one. I have a couple of spare yellow Mustang chainsaws to use for donor parts, engine and the hardware. Missed out on a couple of these over the years and they don't seem to come up for sale as often so was happy to finally get one for the collection.
  3. I think the Tecumseh engine coils might be the same ones. The recoils can be a challenge but they do get easier the more of them you do.
  4. Was thinking about having some decals made for the blower covers. It's certainly less expensive for each one the more made at the same time. If you have any interest in them, let me know a number of how many and I'll try and get a deal done with the decal guy.
  5. Probably are Phelon. The metal laminate part is unique to these engines but it's always possible a chainsaw engine out there could have one that would interchange with minor modification like drilling new holes. The only bad coils seem to be the damaged ones. Think I've had one suspect coil out of 50+ engines so they are probably the most durable part on them. Once you end up with a couple of toasted engines, you'll have some spares. My advice is to buy the crappy Mustang chainsaws for cheap money to gain spare engine parts like coils, carbs, recoils, ect. ect.

    Ohlsson & Rice: Little Wonder Trimmer

    See you already have the essential dental pics and Q-tips out. Another good thing to get is a set of hole punches for making new gaskets. I like the little plier type rather than the type you hit with a hammer. They make quick accurate work for making new paper gaskets. Just search around the web for a set with all different sizes. Example https://www.amazon.com/Darice-1201-14-Circle-Punches-3-Piece/dp/B000WWK8US/ref=sr_1_5/146-3815977-4936629?ie=UTF8&qid=1549421562&sr=8-5&keywords=hole+punch+set

    Ohlsson & Rice: Little Wonder Trimmer

    As with most of these old tools, you should just go through the whole thing anyway. disassemble, clean and re-grease everything. My gearbox on the little wonder does NOT have that hole so it appears someone has been in there before. That means you should definitely get into it and have a look. Just do it over a clean surface or lay out a towel or something. Those little roller bearings enjoy taking off and it's a pain in the @$$ to find them after they do. It's probably something you're aware of by now but just in case since there aren't replacements available.

    Ohlsson & Rice Dyna-Mite gas tank

    I have one of those tanks and just use it to display a glow plug conversion model airplane engine with a big propeller on it.
  9. NICE!!!!! I love everything about it. Been "out of the loop" for a bit since work takes up too much time but it's fantastic to come back and see this stuff. Can't wait to see the finished product. Ian, you're getting pretty good at that video stuff and that camera motion thingy was a really cool effect.

    Ohlsson & Rice: Little Wonder Trimmer

    Now we're talk'n. That's a great idea! Not sure about that hole, I'd have to take a look at mine. But it appears it's a bolt from the other side and not sure why it wouldn't just be a blind hole.

    Ohlsson & Rice: Little Wonder Trimmer

    2 part epoxy, Not sure if that will hold up to gas over time but I'm assuming you're not looking to trim your bushes with this, just collecting

    Ohlsson & Rice Dyna-Mite gas tank

    Spray carb cleaner into the nipple, let it soak. Repeat as many times as needed. You will find that you need to be VERY resourceful when it comes to these tools. Look EVERYWHERE for something that works if you can't find a replacement part. A lot of trial and error will be needed too but that's half the fun. Not sure if any of these will work for the correct size but just to give you an idea. https://www.amazon.com/TAI-DIAN-Transparent-Glass-Containers/dp/B078H9DHPM/ref=asc_df_B078H9DHPM/?tag=bingshoppinga-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid={creative}&hvpos={adposition}&hvnetw=o&hvrand={random}&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=e&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl={devicemodel}&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=&hvtargid=pla-4583863980630237&psc=1

    And yes, the handle is mounted with rubber mounts, vibration dampers. At least you got the little vent bottle. Most are missing because the nipples broke off.

    Ohlsson & Rice Dyna-Mite gas tank

    There should be 3 tank nipples. 2 are vents (one on each side ) because the cap seals the filler neck and the fuel pick up should be on the carb side.
