    I personally feel that my neglect of machinery and using old resurrected stuff has made me the mechanic i am today! After you do so many carbs, occasional head gasket and valves that water got in, etc you learn that engines aren't really some super magical thing, and that if it has fuel, spark, and compression then it has to run, it doesn't have a choice. I feel if you want to learn how to fix engines, the best way is to get an old lawn mower out of the garbage and get it running again. Slowly work your way up to more complicated stuff.

    I'm not getting on you, i was just saying that steel toes make sense running a saw, and are just as comfortable as composite in warm weather, and fine in winter with the right socks. Hell i don't care if you wear slippers, like a welder i worked with last year did :lol:

    Ss, the reality that you actually have is that you are either an employee or an employer (i don't know) for a tree outfit that is growing by leaps and bounds. If you are the employer, that's cool, you should lead by example. I'm sure you know this, but if there is an severe injury on your jobsite, you will be investigated and fined if your company isn't wearing the correct minimum standard of ppe, usually more than what the new bucket truck cost. So you can do two different approaches here, you can try to get by doing the absolute minimum or less, or you can dress the part and understand that no one ever plans on getting hurt so coming up with a plan of how to continuously improve safety and efficiency will be money well spent. If you are simply an employee, then you once again have a choice. Your employer probably requires that you wear the appropriate ppe, so there you go. You can choose to ignore this, but understand that your job may be the cost. I have chosen to ignore certain safety rules in my employment, but i made that decision accepting certain things, like when i chose to run a grinder without a guard and i broke my finger on the job. I simply popped it back in place, and continued work with said broken finger. Because of me constantly working on my knees, i have also chosen to not wear steel toe boots because doing so will cause foot injury later in life. I work accordingly (and as a pipeline welder, all i do is weld, not work with the grunting heavy stuff as much), but fully accept the risks myself. The likely injury that steel toe boots in my trade will protect against is simply a broken toe, unlike a mishap with a saw where amputated toes carry a high likelihood of not being able to walk let alone work. Considering that, maybe wearing steel toes is probably a good idea.

    All major road work is done by contractors in the us. That was in Europe, and likely contractors as well, and they likely had huge running over fines over their heads. And if you see guys leaning on shovels, they are usually spotting equipment (mandatory while digging) or are waiting for a step to be done so they can do their trade. Driving by us you will sometimes see multiple guys watching a machine dig, but there is nothing we can do until we have a hole to work in.

    Tree09 replied to a thread Log arches in The Logging Forum
    On mine, i simply welded chain to just hang down, and the log tongs have a grab hook. That way the height is easily adjusted, and in use the 2nd guy sets the hooks and attaches to the chain. With the logrite you probably can set the tongs by yourself, but adjusting the pick point would be harder i think. It's best to have the tail end slightly heavy, so you don't snag on the ground. Logging arches aren't a new idea by any means... https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michigan_logging_wheels
