Lol nice descriptive phrase there :lol:

I set my alarm an hour early & didn't notice till I was leaving for work today, on the bright side the office is quiet at 7am. I should be able to negotiate an early day release as well.

If it suited you, make a business case to the gaffer for an early start/finish. Make work work for your life balance

I did & it gave me time to creosote the frame for our large log store (14x7' & about 8' high) before dark.

If others wish to use my negotiating skills can I suggest opening with 'Can I go home early because I'm an idiot?' then explain about the alarm & arriving early.

It's our lad's 13th birthday today, he looked under impressed with the idea of party hats when I suggested it last weekend...

I've decided I don't like two smokes, my damn chainsaw just won't run. It's cutting out constantly, doesn't idle & has no power.

Sounds like the carb needs a strip, clean and new gaskets.

I've cleaned the carb, fuel lines etc. It's only ever run about 15 tanks of fuel ffs, it's still new! Oh & it's had a new plug because the electrode came loose in the old one. I'm going to organise sending it back & buying one with a real engine.

Could be the next best thing to a Bullworker for developing those biceps if it's powered by a Briggs&Stratton 4-stroke engine :lol:

Why would a two smoke plug go grey after less than 10mins running? It's a rather metallic grey too
