New Saws in the Collection w/Picture, lol
There seems to lots of parts for the Homelite saws, I'm glad I ended up collecting them versus other brands that parts are non existent. The collection changes often, but I have a penchant for 1965-1985 saws. This is a new picture, without the 115cc model 2000 and another one that's still in the mail. I'd like to get a few more 100cc + saws, Well most of the newer and smaller saws I had collected have been replaced by bigger and rarer saws. I just shot the final clear coat of epoxy on the Model 2000 and will start assembling it tomorrow. I have started restoring my Super EZ automatic and this one is going to be a chore. Terry Industries out of Pointe Claire Quebec was owned by Homelite and produced saws for the Canadian market under the Homelite brand, these are low production sought after models of which I have four. The XL-902am and XL-800am are so rare I have never seen any collector other than me that owns one, let alone both. I need the XL-701am to complete the set.
My 1968 115cc Model 2000 is still on the drying rack and I have another saw on the way. So while I am down to 20 saws, I like the ones I have. Top row from left: 1975 XL-123, 1968 Super XL Automatic, 1983 XL-76 (Terry Ind.), 1965 XL Automatic, 1968 XL-103, all these are 58cc saws. Second row from left: 1967 XL-800, 1980 360 Pro, 1968 XL-850, 1967 XL-800am, all these are 82cc saws except 360 58cc. Third row from left: 1969 XL-902am (Terry Ind.), 1969 XL-903, 1973 XL-923, 1977 Super XL-925 (Terry Ind.), All 82cc saws. Fourth row from left: 1980 43cc Super Mini SL Automatic (Terry Ind.), 1967 58cc Super XL Automatic, 1973 41cc Super EZ Automatic, 1971 37cc EZ Automatic
