    My 1958 Series 1 Solo Rex 125cc saw got a clean up. Had it running for the first time in 10-12yrs, which would have woken the dead in my local suburbia. She sure is loud & proud. My father bought this saw in about 1959-1960 from what I can find in history and was used right up until the early 80's. The big Canterbury wind of 1st Aug '75 gave it plenty of work on the farm, with tall pines & blue gums down everywhere. Love it with all it's noise & nostalgia.

    If it's electric it won't bring in any stags, in the past I've had stags roaring back at me while fencing using a petrol saw and auger

    And it makes your thumb wrap around the handle.
    Makes me cringe when I see people use a saw with their thumb on top of the handle parallel to their fingers. Saw kicks and they are relying on finger pressure to keep their hand on the handle.
    With their thumb apposing fingers, the handle needs to practically dislocate the thumb to get away.
