ONE AND ONLY SAW WORLDWIDE USING A WANKEL ROTARY ENGINE.

SAW HISTORY:
My Grand dads name was Thelma James Edwards of Roanoke, TX.He was the sort of the man that was very much intrigued with German engineering and technology. He was an avid gardener and would try out any new innovation or technique to come along. He saw those advertised in one of his gardening/seed catalogs if memory serves me correctly. The price back in the early 70's was around $600 which at that time was an outrageous amount for a chainsaw but he had to have it. After running the saw for a time he realized that it wasn't very well suited for the chores he would use a saw for (trimming, small tree falling and such). He shelved it shortly thereafter. I acquired the saw some time around 1980 or so. Being a hefty boy I used it quite a bit but it is and was a beast to be lugging around the field and all. It is great if you need to cross cut some logs which are already been "rounded" up and placed.

I put it up sometime in the late 80's and had pretty much forgotten about it till a couple of months ago. After cleaning the shop one day I was feeling a little nostalgic and decided to put some 50-1 in it a give it a twist. The saw cranked after 10 pulls or so but would starve for fuel after 10 seconds or so. I tore it down and discovered that the fuel system was varnished up and needed a thorough going thru. I ordered a carb rebuild kit. After refueling it- it cranked on about the 5th pull and runs on high speed well. Hope ya'll cherish the saw.....Eric

THE "DOLMAR NAME" Found on the Dolmar web site:
Emil Lerp was a modern, forward-looking entrepreneur who knew how to motivate his staff. He organised an internal competition and asked the contestants to come up with a name for his saw. It had to be simple, sound good and easy to pronounce in many languages. It was Emil Lerp’s own wife, Martha, of all people, who was the winner with her suggestion to call the saw DOLMAR. This was because the petrol chain saw of 1927 was used for the first time on top of Dolmar Mountain in Thuringia, which reaches an altitude of 739 metres. Emil Lerp was also a native of Thuringia and Dolmar Mountain was a holiday spot that his family would often frequent.

Our company was named after Dolmar Mountain in Thuringia, which reaches an altitude of 739 m. This is where the first petrol chain saw model A of 1927 was used for the first time.
