Default Sprocket Question

Folks, I have a question that I can't seem to answer, or get answered. So I finally decided to come to the experts...

I've been playing around with the chainsaw on some stumps in the yard and having a great time with it. So much that I decided to "improve" my tools a little and hopefully try and take the carvings up a level. I've got a little Stihl ms 192 t, it's a great little saw and I'd like to put a carving bar on it. I went to the local Stihl dealer to get a 1/4" sproket for it and they said they didn't have one but would try and order one if they make it... I haven't heard back from them.

So I get online and try to see if I can find one myself and apparently I'm not up the you chain carvers lingo enough to figure out if anyone offers it or not...

Is there anyone in here that knows if I can do this or am I SOL for this saw??

Thanks,
Steve

Hi Steve,

I don't have a 192 t but according to this site you should be able to set it up with a 1/4 inch carving bar as per:

MS 192 T

Hope this helps.

Merv

Hi Steve, You can get a 1/4 pitch sprocket for these from Jamie Dorean also @ Chainsawsculpture.com
Best to call or e-mail him but I know he shold be able to help you out no problem! I am sure Stihl does carry the sprocket also but most dealers aren't familiar with anything to do with carving even the natioanl sales offices aren't???
Thanks, Robbin

Hi Steve

Theres a few tree surgeons here in the UK putting carving bars on their pruning saws, a lot safer than a standard bar.

If you order a quarter tip you should be able to fit 3/8 low profile chain which will be the same as what you use now but different chain length, you could then swap bars when ever you want.

A quarter tip is just a little bigger than a dime bar, Jamie will sort ya out.

Safe carvin'
