where find ?

Where can I find tungsten or carbide tipped blades for my 16" chain saw?

I ran it through Google, but couldn't find any through that means.

Hi Rbig,
-As we have many chain saw and cutting equipment shops in my area, I took the opportunuty to inquire at 3 of them for you.
All had the same answer,- the companies that sharpen their chains will construct carbide tipped chains as a special order. One of them also thought Stihl made a limited amount of them, but couldn't find details. All said that if sent details of the saw they could get built at "about 3-4 times regular chain cost". Hope this helps you

Interesting. I'll check with my local sharpening places to see what they have to say about this.

I would think various companies would offer new chains with the tungsten or carbide. But, it may be that the demand is so low that it doesn't warrant anything except special order.
