    Both valid posts, thanks. The new cloggers are really thin, so I'd like them to be more snug, they have vents behind the knees so a loose waist isn't as necessary for heat management, oh the drama to find the perfect fit!

    Bermy replied to a thread Cold showers in Odds and Ends
    I loooove my hot shower, voluntarily exposing myself to cold water is not an easy choice, even going swimming in Bermuda, I'm a cold water wimp and that's when it's almost 80*. But I have to say any time I've been swimming and the water is chilly, 70 or less, one feels so much more refreshed and invigorated when you come out, I reckon there is something to it.

    I think Jim is referring to the 'chain' unit of measurement...:) So yesterday we managed to avoid getting scammed...we had put our little camper on GumTree for sale, within 10 minutes had two contacts saying they wanted it, full price, give then our name address and bank/paypal details...they can't come and see it, they can't call because wow, so coincidentally, they have very busy high powered jobs and can't get away...will send an agent to pick it up after the money gets to our account...wanted as a surprise gift for 'cousin' 'family'...neither would enter into or refer to discussion about optional extras...no, want it now, full price, bank transfer... My spidey sense started tingling, especially when one that has sms messaged me blocked a return sms... I almost fell for it, but thank goodness had the presence of mind to pause and say, hey wait a minute...as well as the old adage when you are buying/selling your stuff to insist on face to face or direct contact of some description. Both attempts got me to switch to email, didn't want to use the website message system, the language was off, grammar, flow, and when both of them used the same tactics, and the pressure started coming that they really wanted it and the money would be transferred immediately as soon as they got our details...yeah NO! They try to get your email, address, name, and then either bank details or paypal/bank stuff...I dodged a bullet, reported the whole thing and their email addresses (gmail so no bets that those accounts are gone now) and GumTree confirmed it is a scam. Bastids Happy ending though, we sold it a few hrs later to someone down the street! Cash.

    Ha! I've just had a girlfriend start doing groundie for me...only need to show/tell once, she's got it, we get along well. She earned her paycheck on Monday...I went to pull my rope 60' out of a cedar, two natural redirects in it with fairly tight branch forks... I couldn't shift it...she's a bigger lady than I am...she got it out! I asked her to work with me again next week.

    Sean, you'd be surprised how close in weight the new 462 is to my 260...(not a 261 mind)...I reckon if I put an 18" bar on it the 260 might be relegated...

    Yes, I do. On the ground it is always next to me when felling. Great for the split level cut on small back leaners, breaking out face cut wedges, tipping a balanced tree...also mine has the cant hook on it too, great for rolling hung up stuff. I've never climbed with it.

    The reason you are getting dust when cutting root flares is that for the most part you are cutting straight down the grain. Crosscutting across the grain gives you chips Cutting along the length of the grain gives you 'noodles' So if your chain is reasonably sharp, even and depth gauges ok, and you are getting good chunky chips when crosscutting, don't worry about the dusty cut when cutting the flares...it's just the orientation of the grain.

    Bermy replied to a thread And now I wait in The Logging Forum
    Yes, it would be Juniperus virginiana I'm thinking, Looks great Page and a nice smell for the room Bermuda cedar is Juniperus bermudiana...and Stig is right,beats the lot for aroma!! He asked me when his shop would stop smelling of cedar and I had to tell him we have a 400 yr old church that is fitted out. pews, balcony floor, roof beams and still reeks of it, so he could bank on a few years for sawdust :lol: I bring bits back to Tassie with me whenever I can, peel the bark off, declare it and it's fine.

    Mate, just don't take on any jobs where you are fretting like this...start with the small ones, ones you can try your systems on without dire life threatening consequences. Build on basics (Mick said that somewhere)

    Mmm...that might head towards the realm of causing injury where he could face a backlash...I love the ultrafine glitter and the stink. They know they've been busted and when they figure out it's been recorded...the worry factor will last far beyond vacuuming up the glitter and airing out the stink.

    And look how they are so casual about it, unwrapping the box to see what they scored...not a thought for the poor sap they stole it from. Serves them right, every time.
