    I'd like CBD, gonna ask my doc about it Monday but I don't think I'll be able to afford it. The Masterblaster CBD Fundraiser has a nice ring to it.

    Do you have a mental catalogue, a written list or are there saws in there you may have completely forgotten about?

    I love the scene in Pumping Iron where he rests a 315 lbs bar on his chest because Arnold makes him laugh and then presses it like it was nothing. If Arnold was my idol when I was a pimply faced teen trying to lift weights, Franco was a very close second . Gained much inspiration from those old b + w photos.

    My friction saver arrived today all the way from the UK and instantly became the nicest piece of gear I have. Now I just have to get past the mental hurdle of not having my lifeline around the tree. Thanks again Highscale.

    Wow. Pull yourself up by your neck, have a rest on a small rope between your cheeks and then bite on that same rope to hold your weight while holding two torches. It all looked impressive and very uncomfortable.

    My dad inherited a Homelite XL-12. He had to jury rig a fuel line but got it running and got me to sharpen the chain. I cut a cookie and was quite impressed but was unsure about oiling the chain. What is the rule of thumb (pun intended) on manual oiling during a cut? u

    Our crane operator at the plant said he had to wait out a bear that was hanging at the bottom of his tree stand and figured it was the Macdonalds he ate on the drive out. Hard to resist that grease once you get a whiff.

    That's all we use Kyle. Crank that ratÁhet and you can hang upside down. Lx, you may be able to switch out your current hard hat harness for one with a ratchet. The retractable lanyards lock like a seatbelt. If your tied at waist height the system might take you into the beam as opposed to below it. It's more suitable to muscle yourself back up but what kind of shape are your arms in after that fall? I know I would try to catch myself which would hurt like hell.

    Lx, if you are tying off at your feet and working alone, with no real plan for rescue, having a hard hat that doesn't fall off might not be your first priority. Dealing with suspension trauma is good if you're conscious and have the use of all your limbs. Ideally your tie off would be directly overhead with no shock load or swing. Unless you have a crane that follows you around and let's you tie to the ball, your tie off will be less than ideal.

    You could start asking the nurses you deal with if they know anyone. As a cat lover myself, I know someone will take them once they hear the details of the situation. We can sweeten the deal and offer a few months of food/ litter/shots to whomever adopts them. At the expense of Treehouse donors of course.

    When I think of the gear I've been gifted over the years, through this site, from some of the top guys in the industry, it really is quite humbling. Saddle, lanyard, lifeline, throwline, rigging block, micropulleys, carabiners. I'm honored and very appreciative.

    Yes. I guess I should ask your price before I grow too attached to it.��

    I'll take the green one please. I can e transfer or PayPal you some money for the FS and some to pass on to your customer to cover their end of the shipping when they get to Canada.

    I'd like one of those friction savers but an online shipping calculator says 30 pounds minimum charge to Canada.
