This thread has been dead for almost 3 months. The original poster has probably left the house never to return.
These type of posts are common. New poster with problem wants long distance help. I have never understood why the first step that they take is not to take their problem to a local shop(s) and get an answer. Then if they do not like the answer they can start a thread and look for possible alternatives.
I brought the thread back up because there was a similar thread going on GJ and I thought it was valuable HERE to connect the two as there seems to be a resolution in the works in the GJ thread.
I agree, a large percentage of new posters here come in with an issue, and never come back, the OP hasn't been back since 10/25/2017. Again, I didn't revive it for him, I revived it for others that might have a similar problem as it seems to be an issue with these saws. You also realize a lot of posters land here because they searched a specific issue, and there was something on this forum that showed up.
Beyond that the world has changed since the "run it down to your local shop" days. Many folks don't have the time during the day to go to the local shop, even if they knew if/where it was. So the easy way is to get online, find a forum, and ask away, many times without the slightest amount of research. It's certainly not the way I learned to do it, but it seems to be more of the norm these days. I will spend hours researching something, so when I do ask a question I at least have a darned good idea what I am doing, and pretty much hit a road block and am looking for other thoughts.
Sorry if you didn't like the 3 month old thread being brought up, I felt it was justified.
