Wood Gloat #9: Leopard Wood this time..

Homelite 26 LCS I thought I would post an-other one of my collected chainsaws here from the bygone days of ‘golden oldies’.... ....and when one really gets to studying these ‘beasts’, one can also much more appreciate where we are today, with chainsaws in terms of safety, (don’t you just love the safety word) weight, horsepower and ease of the cut in the wood…. ....the Homelite 26 LCS was introduced in 1951 and discontinued in 1953…. ...
