A common issue with pendant necklaces is when the chain moves and the clasp suddenly sits in the front. This is because the clasp is likely heavier than the chain itself. To prevent this from happening, look for a necklace that has a counterweight on the clasp, or add one yourself.

My 18 Inch chain saw will not keep oiling the Chain, I had it worked on and He said it was plugged. How do you unplug it with out taking it all apart. Is there a spot to blow air through. the Preacher..
Remove the chain bar and look just below the bolts holding it in place. You’ll see a small hole where the chain bar oil pump pushes out oil. Make sure this hole is clear then run the saw without the bar on.
Be CAREFUL of fingers!
You should see oil coming out of that hole. If not, you may need more serious work done with the saw (chain bar pump replacement).
Bad Clutch?? 455 rancher 20″ bar) I have owned it for two years and cut tons of fire wood with it. I recently replaced the oil pump. Yesterday I’m cutting oak like butter. Chain saw is cutting fine.. For no apparent reason it starts struggling to cut. I figure I hit something with the chain. I go to sharpen and notice that the clutch it’s red hot. I take it apart clean it up sharpen it up put it back together fire it up and start to cut. It starts to cut on angle and has no power?? runs fine revving it but will not cut?? What do you think?
Hi Before other checking change the spring of the clutch(2). best regards savumihai71
What causes the chain on my 240E to jump off the chain bar often, the chain tenson is correct.
Is the bar bent?try and flip it over and see if it falls off the other side if you can see a bend
I was using the saw as a chain saw last weekend to cut up an old tree stump when the chain came off. I don’t know how to access it to put it back on and don’t have a user manual. The saw belonged to my late father and I don’t know if he even kept the manual.
You will have to remove the cover on the side the chain bar goes into. There should be one or two nuts holding the cover on the side. The is also a chain tension adjuster you may have to loosen to put it back on. Make note of the direction of the teeth on the chain. It is an directional chain. The tension adjuster is usually a flat head screw on the front side right beside the chain bar.Unless it is a really old saw, manuals are available from most manufacturers for free download. See if you can locate a brand name and model number.
