I was getting ready to start reassembling a Stihl MS250, inspecting plastic parts for obscure cracks and breaks, when I discovered, on closer inspection, that 1 of the 3 plastic rear handle/covers that I previously posted pics of had several cracks and breaks that I hadn't noticed and considered unacceptable to use w/o repair. I spent an hour and a half plastic welding the breaks back together Thursday. The welds should hold up very well and won't show on a completed saw. I will use the saw that I complete with it as a test saw for this and other parts that I repair/replace, and keep dated, detailed notes. I am glad that I caught the breaks, and will post pics of the repaired cover later, and post updates to the board, as respects the repair's longevity.
