Antique Chain Saw: A Hard To Find Item Of EquipmentThe antique chain saw is not easy to find and one may need to do a lot of research before finding one. A fascinating early antique chain saw is the one that was manufactured by the Power Machinery Company of Vancouver, BC, Canada. It consists of a manual clutch rather than the automatic centrifugal clutches being used these days. Most antique chain saws are mostly the property of single owners who have had them for quite some time and very often these are not even in working condition. They may require restoration of the chain saw which may be done by finding some paint with which to repaint the chain saw to protect it from exposure to the sun as well as other weather elements and before running the chain saw after having painted it may require using lacquer paint so that the paint would not lift and peel as easily as do enamel paint especially when it is exposed to gasoline.
