Ground has not been the driest to run the engine but it would do. Here's the final pics of the bar and engine running.

Looks and sounds good, will you be taking it to any shows this year?, the second mans sidegrip looks awfully close to the chain

Not something the operator would be worried about is it

Indeed no! ...and to be honest, it's not likely to be particularly welcome at a public show! Ok as a static exhibit (and very interesting) but I wouldn't have it run on any line I was organising.

Thanks all for the comments, I don't think I'll be taking it to any shows this year. If i did i wouldn't want to be standing next to a quiet engine.

Someone on the Bucks, Oxfordshire etc rally circuit used to show a pretty large display of chainsaws - mostly static but would run one or two up if a punter showed particular interest.

There really is nothing to worry about unless you fell on it or was really stupid. the chain speed is very slow compared to a direct drive chainsaw , no more dangerous than an exposed flywheel of a stationary engine.

That sounds great. I can't see any problem with it being used at a display as long as both operators have a bit of common sense and a healthy respect of the machine, in which case it's not nearly so dangerous as many stationary engines.
