...have been great...69-70 degrees...sunshining...and it's supposed to be the same for at least a few more days. Been working on the driveway and cutting wood for next winter. Does anyone know a good place to get an air filter for a Stihl 024 Wood Boss? Just got it for free and it's like new, but the filter is messed up from sitting with oil on it for 9 years....still has white paint on the bar and all the extras and manuals and even the original sales ticket for 385 clams back in 1990...runs excellent on the 1st pull w/o the filter on it...all I can find are filters for 026 and up...Don't want to wear out my Homelite that my Dad gave me. Hope you all have a great day...I'm gone fishin on Sam Rayburn's already 4am ...the early bird, ya know....Lynch

Well there are a coupla good solvents out there - gasoline or paint thinner. We got into hot mop roofs years ago, and after awhile my favorite work boots had gotten a few inches taller, so i decided they're no good now, what could it hurt? so i soaked them in a 5-gal bucket of paint thinner. It took a week or so, but once they dried and i used a little saddle soap again, i got another year out of them. Plus, i had a few gallons of Mexican patio stain. :)
Why not try renewing the filter you have?

Thanks...I did do what the manual said to do as far as cleaning goes. ..I just don't like the results, and the saw is like new so I don't want to mess it up for the cost of an air filter....Thanks Mr. Carp.....Lynch

When did the Mexicans start staining their patios? All of 'em I've ever seen have been white washed.

Oh i don't know about Mexican patios, but in about the mid-60s, California homeowners started liking the look of rough lumber patio covers (to the point where rough lumber cost more than planed) Of course, the rough lumber took gallons of stain like a sponge but people ADORED having them finished with a product known as Mexican stain. You couldn't buy it in a store. It started out almost black, in a year or 2 bleached out to a nice weathered grey - they liked it so we gave it to them, and only the builders knew it was just roofing tar melted into paint thinner. (very much like the regular stain you buy at Home Depot) Wouldn't surprise me if there aren't a few guys still re-staining patios around Valencia with that stuff. :)

Thanks, JoeK....I had looked at 4 web stores for the part...Yours has a filter for the 024, but I'm waiting to find out if it will fit...the part # is off by one number. The original filter # is 11211201615 and the 024 filter # there is 11211201625. But thanks search didn't bring up that site. Lynch
