Hello folks,

https://youtu.be/arnAD8I7msQ
In this video, I am making a bear-proof door from two large northern pine slabs milled with a chainsaw.
The door is made with traditional build-in pin hinges that I have never seen in real life.
The video gained over 1M views during the first week after it was published. I hope this DIY /nature video will take your mind away from a recent pandemic.

Guys, please stay safe in this mess,

-Max

Max,

1. The door opens outwards in case the bear wants to try and buffalo it to enter.

2. If you ask anthm27 nicely he might spring for a genuine Stihl USA piston and rings for you

3. The next video has got to feature The Round Window surely?

and a bit of humour for you.

Do they still operate these days?

Rob,

Correct))

As far as Stihl I am done with that brand (at least with what they sell here in Russia). I switched to Husquarna.

The round window video still needs to be edited, so a different video is coming next…

Yes, Aeroflot is still in business)) I just used them a couple of months ago.

Best!

Interesting comment regarding brands,
I would have thought the MS 260 would have been far more suitable for the type of work you are doing than the MS 180, especially as the 260 is a Mag body as opposed to the 180 being polymer.

Mind you Al is chronic for galling at the best of times, it could have been a piece of carbon that started it
