    $2250. You're going to go through about 5 chains at $25 each, a gallon of bar oil, gas, all that. Don't bid $1000, that's just plain crazy.

    You do know you can sharpen chains, don't you?

    No problem. TBH I believe the OP was in over his head from the start. I often wonder what happens to some members that start threads like this and suddenly disappear.

    I suppose that the OP sent you a PM about his progress on this bid/job since the last reply was 4-14-14?.
