How do you form the channels/grooves around the edge? I'm a bit stuck on that with my own (very stalled) build.
Cheers

Speak of the deadite, and he shall appear... Halliwax and I made this back in like, 2019 for cheap. It was meant to be just a fun build over a couple weekends. I got a similar chainsaw off of eBay for $14. I think in all, it cost about $50 and it used the coffee can method for the cuff. In truth, we could have trimmed it close to the recessed area, but for a quick build, I've always been happy with it.

Looks great! I've been looking at different builds for this for my own project. I was going to buy one of those fake chainsaws on amazon but I snagged a homelite XL 2 on eBay for 30 bucks. 20 dollars cheaper than the fake saw. Gonna do the flat top version.

What would be a good material to make the bar from? Was thinking plywood and maybe bike chain?
Real chainsaw bars would be lighter and possibly cheaper these days than plywood. The bars I use changed to an aluminum core. They are very light. I do have to modify them to fit and look as the bar on the flat top looks in screen caps. The worst is grinding down the sharpness of the chain with a dremel and sanding the link rivets to be silver. But plastic shower wall sheet material is similar in thickness to the gauge the bar metal is. You could sandwich a bar of aluminum with it and paint it.

So, Halliwax actually 3-D printed chainsaw chain (I think he dound it on thingiverse?), we cut out an alluminum blade then we glued it all together.
Killer, I’m too paranoid to work with glue. I just never had much luck. Even with all the different formulas available. When I make my clamps I braze the sleeves in place so I could stay accurate with only 3 brackets holding it onto the saw for the flat top.

He used E-6000 and it's still holding, and I have brought it to a renaissance faire (dressed as Ash).

Note: the picture was from 2019
