The last post about the saw size made me laugh.

Robin found a "12" inch Lortone on eBay not long after we got married. I scaled the pan in the photos and figured it would fit into the trunk of the '04 Mustang easy enough. So we drove to Payson - a couple of hours away - to get it.

We got there and found out it was 14", and looked a lot bigger than I thought it would. Took it all apart, and it just did fit in the Mustang. Parts of it rode home in the back seat.

The old guy in Payson stood back and watched the whole ordeal. Then he laughed and then said he didn't think we would be able to get it all in there. We got the saw, and he got live entertainment... .

You might also check out Christopher Anthony for fire agate.  I don't have his contact info handy now but will post it tomorrow.

Those are meant to pump oil right onto the blade to aid in cooling.

Unfounded optimism.  Called and just a will call warehouse, can't look at anything.  I need a micrometer for accurate measurement of the gauge wire.

Looked up McMaster and what a great resource!.  I had a metric ruler and measured, but then saw all their measurements were in decimal fractions of an inch.  I thought maybe I needed a micrometer or something, and maybe I could send to them to get the right type.  Then I see the address in Elmhurst and my phone shows as only 48' away! So I can just bring it there, validate type, gauge, etc!
