Have to be vintage Pioneers,and worm drive Macs...chainsaws have had nickasil bores since its been invented..............anyhoo,like doggy girl ,I would go to see as many machines locally......you get a feel for the owners lying cheating and stealing.....and straight out fibbing when asked to truthfully say whats wrong....also get a idea to assess how desperate they are when they say they wont drop a penny on price,and then fold like fresh cowpat.

You're looking at some big old heavy iron there.
Not sure I'd want to mess with those, thanks, especially if I didn't have much experience.
Keep looking.

A lathe ain't worth messing with if it can't suck you in and blend you into a sack of bone shards and blood with out snorting.

In my opinion it's kind of the nature of the beast with metal working tools.
