You are not insane, At the end of the day you have a collection of something worth money. Some will spend all evening at the bar. At the end of the day they have nothing to show for what they have spent, also no friends when money is gone. Your wife should be proud of you.

oologahan,

Thank you for posting the pictures. That saw sure looks like what I referred to as an EZ with shock mounts. I've only ever seen the one, and now your pictures. No idea if that's a rare one or what. In any event there weren't many of 'em around here, despite the EZ being a popular climber's saw at the time.

One more thing, back then we did not use any of those XL8__ or XL9__ series saws. For the most part we jumped from the XL12's right to the Super Wiz gear drives. We also had (And I still have) a McCulloch Super 250 and a couple of Homelite C52's. These saws were good steady performers but we did not use them much, And when the real big stuff came along, that's when we fired up the old McCulloch 99 with the 50" bar. We used the Super Wiz's for the bigger stuff until we got a McCulloch 797. That was the end of the gear drive Homelites! The 797 was and is to this day a real beast, one of the true big displacement super saws.

I use to collect the oddball saws. I had a Homelite with a 2 speed gearbox, and one with a float carb, where you turned the carb to cut sideways. I thought they were interesting.

Well five months later the collection grows to 24 saws with a pristine Homelite XL-103 on its way from the North East. I just received a nice running XL-123(sitting on the floor) last week and have been using my Homelite 350 quite a bit lately

At one time I had 13 baby Xl's hanging from the wall. Saws are worse than rabbits.

Thinned them down to a dozen or so. Mostly newer Stihl's.

What will cure you is when you need a tree cut down, and you can't or won't use one of your saws to do it. Wife will kill you then

Only two trees on our 20 acres, both large oak shade trees, besides my wife would never say a cross word toward me or challenge anything I say.
