    Spite-girdling, my guess. New homeowner... Guessing a foreclosure before. The whole row, dead and still green. Tangled is an understatement.

    I was considering electric, but don't have time to explore that. You guys even milled cedar with a ripping chain? Obviously not ideal, but my down-payment took away a lot of reserves. A ported 880, 72" capacity bar, mill and chains is an easy $3k.

    What percentage of diameter was your hinge? Go get a magnetic bubble level, go in the garage, use a mirror, practice holding the bar level, look in mirror, and check the bubble. P.S. you might be tall, with a short bar, and standing. Looks like you need to cut at a comfortable height. Yesterday, most face- cuts were 2-3" off the ground, as I was pushing at 7', so I needed to maximize my leverage. I was on all 4's checking ALL my cuts. When your at about 1/3 depth face-cut, you haven't really destabilized most trees by that much. Calm down!!! Slow down!!! NO reason you couldn't have made a level back-cut if you decided to. Did you mark your back cut before cutting, step back, look, and say to yourself that the mark is square? You can't keep cutting sloppy and live.

    The Sherlock Holmes comment. Could go either way. F'ing text-online, non-real time, interaction. Quite primitive, considering someone walked on the moon and came back alive and well in 1969 or so...50 years basically. In time, it will all be video posts.

    The ergo fits probably. I shrank out of the Ergo. If it fit, I'd definitely keep it. Newest of the three.

    460/461Just for these cedars, way soft wood. One purchase at a time, coming into winter. I'll have a wood miser come out for most of the milling. Sooner or later a big saw.

    Awaiting new saddle in mail. Full leather maybe not as good in PNW... Winter is coming. If the Ergo fit me, it would be my daily driver. If the new TA doesn't fit, I'm going after a Treemotion.

    Two smc rings. Tech-cord backup bridge installed during the breaking bridge era. I'm keeping the green biner, sentimental value.

    Open to offers. All safe, working condition. I'm keeping the green bridge ring and red biner. Didn't put the gear loops on new belt. I popped a rivet. TS replaced belt. I might have extra leg loops, somewhere. I've replaced the bridge once, just because they're cheap.

    Rotten Willow, practicing a Triple Hinge where not really needed much. Pulled way down the root. Forward part of the hinge was kinda rotten, as expected, so it was not a ton of help. Maybe a little thick'hinged on the tension-side. Pounded over fine. Remote hand-pull on the back leaning alder ( known for barber chairing. Maybe a little thick hinged. Pulled over ok. Don't know when the bottom split.

    SeanKroll replied to a thread milling thread in Chainsaws!
    Anyone lean toward a 3120 over 880? Do I really need a 661 sized saw? 261 with a 20", 461 will pull a 36" in a pinch for straight thru in the tree, or 461 with a 28" for double-cutting in the tree. If I'm getting a new saw, I might as well get it ported. I lost track of the guy not very far from me, south of Olympia, who builds saws. Anyone remember a guy? Madsen's probably had a guy. A ported 880 should chew through rounds like nobody's biz.

    SeanKroll replied to a thread How'd it go today? in Odds and Ends
    I have been wondering where you went to work. I was thinking Amazon fulfillment something or other with lots of walking mentioned. Good you have two irons in the fire. I volunteered at D's school for a while today, then went and banged out 3 hours of work at a job, felling three true-fir crispies, wedged over. Then limb up what I could get in to from the top of the loader arms along a row of fir and spruce trees girdled by a past owner. Climbed up one, reached three to the sides, and a hair of the fouth. A bit more climbing, and I should be able to start pulling some over. Lots of intertwined limbs to overcome, as the trees are only a few feet, 4', 5' apart at ground level. Burning tomorrow!

    What stretches out the lifespan of your Only feet? This isn't making a saw last, its PPE. Don't skimp. I've gotten new orthotics, way better. $450 well spent. Not even a consideration. Doctor visits themselves mostly/ fully paid by insurance. Take care of your feet (which means taking care of your ankles, knees, hips, spine).

    I'd suggest hand-throwing for cats. 60' is pretty manageable. Takes practice is all, like free-throws.

    I'm a bit tone-deaf about that, at times. I'm wondering if I should get a double-ended bar and big mill, and run a 460 and 461 for cedar sitting in my way (about $1000), and buy an 880 or 3120, with accessory oiler and helper handle when I'm feeling more flush, winter is coming. I can buy a GB bar now, and the mill now. Buying the Granberg package is 10-12 weeks, waiting for the custom made bar, prepaid, as the 'small company in Oregon' takes that much time.

    SeanKroll replied to a thread milling thread in Chainsaws!
    Now to convert to square inches/ minute per species:lol: I couldn't resist making one cut today, but then was out in time. I think I have 36" milling chain. It was all I could cut with a 32", with dogs on. The knot was killing me, kept trimming it flusher and more. Granberg said saws need to be within 10 cc of each other on a double-ended bar. I've got a 460 and 461. Might run that on these cedar logs. I'll get a 661 soon. Or 880. I could get a second 661 for milling and all around use. For richening up for milling, people talk about adjusting carbs. How much of a turn? How about richer oil mix in the fuel?

    I don't think the rubber boots would stand up to the wear and tear. Would need some heavy protection, like...I don't know what, from the stirrup.
