I think Silica Hardware on the East Side of Lake Winnebago would do it. But to save some money this is what i did to my Husky Chainsaw to covert it.(A Dremel tool makes it easy)
1)Remove all the rakers on the chain.
2)Remove every other cutting tooth so that when you look at the chain the first tooth cuts one way and then the 2nd tooth cuts the other way then the 3rd cuts the same direction as the 1st and the 4th cut the same as the 2nd and so on................. untill you get some space between the teeth.
3) Caulk up the entire intake so no H2O vapor enters the intake.
4) I run vegetable oil in the oiler.(or install a grease gun on the bar)
This worked for me and has lasted years.

Bob's small engine and Dave's small engine in Fond Du Lac both do work on Sturgeon saws.

1. Faithfull Power Plus
2. Silverline Silverstorm
3. Clarke ECSS2
