    I've often thought about a block mounted central, just a foot in from the chip box door, and one near the cab. with a portable winch and tag line seems like you could float logs up with the first block, then drag back with the second one... Never seen it done tho

    Not just in the ghetto, man... I'm a Gangsta!!! Rich: O.k, now I'm just plain spooked... how in the WORLD could you possible know that that was the "Sammamish Job." Dude, there's only like, .02% of the population who could even spell that. Oh... and yeah... My job was just brushing and topping. They boys got to handle all of the wood... entitled, little bastards!

    I'm actually headed to Europe tomorrow, two weeks in France, then a while wandering around. I'd definitely try some Danish logging while I'm over there!

    I really hesitate at a rope grab attached around a finger. Heard to many wedding ring horror stories I guess.

    Nice bump! I still love it for pruning jobs. HH is my go to for take downs, but the easy on/off really shines for tip work in spready oaks. It doesn't love pitch, but no device or hitch does. I think it's a great tool to own if you do much work on decurrent trees, it makes redirects a snap. If mostly excurrent pruning or removals, stick with the HH. Tim, can we get a picture of you or some of your work on the site? You're a great contributor, but it feels a bit impersonal talking to a faceless person sometimes.

    ruel replied to a thread MICHOACAN hitch in Climbing Forum
    Don't let the VT brigade talk you out of a hitch you're liking though. If the security is working for you, run it! Might also like the diestel and knut. Vt is a great hitch too tho. Good tip for getting a VT to grab better is to tie the hitch, then twist the eyes 180/360 degrees before clipping the carabinier. One direction of twist tightens the hitch, other loosens

    My buddy who carves spoons uses Walnut oil, beautiful finish that really shows off the grain. I saw a bottle at the health food store for maybe 7 bucks

    ruel replied to a thread Scandinavian filing stand in Chainsaws!
    I made a few clamping stump vises when I was doing all that island work earlier this year. Vertical Bore cut about 2"down from top, then cut from top right next to the bore. Then cut horizonal a few inches down from the bottom of your first cut. Hold the saw in the second cut and wedge the horizontal to close the vise. This one looks way easier!

    On my small rope lanyard I use a #2 brass snap to Hitch tend. With the right hitch it can work well, for about $2

    9 mil epi on Yale 11.7 ropes with 5 wraps is pretty sweet for my 195 lbs self. Best combo I've used, tends great, sets when tied snug, smooth descent.

    ruel replied to a thread Hitch Hiker X in Climbing Forum
    I wonder if that lower shackle would play well with the HH2? I do sometimes have issues with cross loading, I think the shackle setup would help with tending too. Is Richard on this forum? Send like a nice creative fella who would get on well here

    Jed replied to a thread 2511T VS CS 355 T in Chainsaws!
    Modds are neither here nor there. The 355 has more cc's which makes it a bigger saw. Don't watch August Hunnike videos. Mods are neither here nore there. All proprerly done mods will increase cc potential. If you want something akin to a 200t, then get the 355. But still... muffler mod it, at least. The other smaller Echo... muff mod, at least. All muff mods are going to (with Echo) do a great deal of good. Those saws are heavily restricted, and the mufmod ALWAYS does worlds of good.
