Agree with Hankster. If the scoring isn't too bad, I guess you could try honing it out - but putting new parts in without addressing the cylinder is throwing good money after bad. It would likely be cheaper, easier and make a better impression to buy him a new Stihl. BTW, you broke 2 major rules:

Rule #1 - Never borrow anything (that you don't want to self-destruct) from your boss
Rule #2 - If you must borrow lawn equipment, don't borrow Craftsman.....

Inch - If it were a Husky, he probably wouldn't have locked it up to begin with!!! -Either that or his boss keeps the Husky under lock & key and only lends out his shot Craftsman.....(smart boss...)
