    Flippys do fail. I had one reverse or something, so it lined up such that it was impossible to secure. Other times they lock in place, then just fall out on the way up.

    I think it depends on how competent of people you work with, and personal preference. I think I'd find t easier to just fuel it myself in the tree and toss the bottle down than to lower, wait, and raise. I like to keep moving.

    I was cutting 4-14" Ash into firewood yesterday, and didn't find it justifiable to cut faster by lugging around 20lbs. The 2511 cut plenty fast at no weight. I might as well just have a chainsaw blade sticking out of my fist.

    I had an idea, you know those little bottles of oil to mix 1 gallon of gas? They are small enough it could be handy to climb with a couple to refill the saw with gas and oil from in the tree. I think one of those little bottles could really hold up to 4oz, the 2511t holds 4.7oz of oil, and 6.4oz gas. I recently did a side by side comparison with a 193t 16" .043. I could feel a significant lack of power and torque over my Mitch modified 2511t, and it was around 3 seconds slower in 10" ash.

    It's just crazy how a bug can evolve to look and fly exactly like a humming BIRD, but with a moth head. Same tail, even appears to have feathers, same wings...

    I found this White Oak at a job site. It could be a living champion or at least close. I don't think the pictures do it justice in terms of size appearance. Easily 100ft tall.

    What is this? It has a similar leaf pattern as walnut or hickory, I forgot to take a pic of it. The wood I at first thought definitely wasn't oak since it didn't have the obvious lines radiating out, but I looked closer and could definitely see them. The bark is pretty smooth with somewhat oak like patterns, but nothing that stands out to me as oak or hickory. Definitely a heavy hard wood, kind of yellowish similar to pine.

    Not my picture, but I figure it goes here instead of the bird watching thread as it is both larger than life, and not a bird. I saw one of these at work today. I thought it was a hummingbird, but it was extremely small, smaller than half my finger, almost bug sized, but looked just like a hummingbird. I even thought I saw a long straight black beak, but then I saw antenna, which is weird. A closer look and I assumed it was a hummingbird moth, if there is such a thing. A google search confirmed it.

    Plastic rope is ok, I was talking about solid plastic line. Most any oil should work, thicker is better, but it could be messy. I've never had to try it. It would only smoke for about 5 seconds.

    Plastic would be easier to snip off in a port, but cotton can be abrasive if left behind. Also cotton is squishier, so that can help. You could hyro lock it with oil if done properly, its the same process, move the piston to the correct side of the stroke high enough to plug all ports, fill with oil leaving room for the plug, then drain the oil when finished.

    Either way I don't want my trees dying to the ground each year if there is a chance of that.

    I've found hardiness to have more to do with what temps kill the root. Like some plantain varieties are supposedly hardy to around -10 I think, but would never reach maturity around here as they freeze back to the ground most winters.

    I thought about hackberry, but they are on the slow side, and I hate them, and I've known some to be randomly sappy. Maybe I'll plant whatever this is

    I think, it would be pretty cool to plant a redwood in my yard, but I think it would freeze each year. Boy would it stick out after a good 50 years of feeding and watering. Planes might have to watch out for it :)

    Would you have a dealer rewind a starter coil spring for you? I would until I goofed and let the coil loose when working on one. I hated every minute of it, but I got it wound back up and installed. I didn't think I could do it. That was on a 359, and it wasn't easy. Then I looked at one on a 372, and I was sure to not let it loose as it looked truly impossible to rewind.

    An impact driver is the easiest way. You don't need a piston stopper or anything like that generally.
