    I daily check lights. Autoparts store across from the GF's is handy.

    Axe, always...aloft or on the ground...for real treemen and women anyway...like I've told y'all before ad nauseum :D. I always preferred a light weight radio harness. Had to with the heavy/bulky USFS radio. But used the same rig with my own FSR radios, too. Much more secure...I knocked my radio loose a couple of times when I did as Reg describes. They don't fly all that well :).

    Man, that would test my nerves. Most the time here, in our small town, they will let me slide on stuff like that. I get told, get to NAPA or the shop and fix it.

    The MB back pad looks to be styled after the TreeMo so it feels best ridden down below the top of the hipbones, which I personally love. It is a heavier, more solid felling saddle with maybe a little more support? The MB gear attachment points seem to be like an old west coast setup with a ring for your chainsaw and a clip for your handsaw both on your right side. That is what I am use to, so that?s how I run it. I could see some not really digging it though. One of the virtues the TreeMo is the freedom to set it up to your liking. When I am wearing my TreeMo light I often forget I am even wearing a saddle. The MB definitely won't do that. They are both such fantastic saddles that a coin toss would probably be the easiest way to chose between the two.

    Thanks all:thumbup: Cory, a mallet has one use. While an axe has several, like cutting, gouging, prying, digging and pounding of course. Good to have options. Several of trees I dealt with through this particular job had broken and decayed tops. So the sharp edge came in handy for testing the wood. The radio was just clipped in between my shirt buttons. Wasn't too annoying.

    Zane replied to a thread Leaving gear aloft. in Climbing Forum
    I'm with everyone else here. Used to leave gear aloft, but now mainly throwlines if i need to leave a climb line. The exception to that is that I'll leave a block up high and if it's in a safe spot I will sometimes leave a rigging rope through it. If i think it's a weird thing I would put a throwline through instead.

    I have an old FMC/Wayne chuck and duck chipper we use for brush cleanup. 99% of the time we blow the chips in the woods or into a backstop so the clients can use the chips. I always take to logs if they are of any value.

    Hmm....interesting. I'm still nursing along my old 046 while I've gone through 3 461's in 4 years at work. The 461 is a great saw since I use it most often but still not a 046. Hopefully the 462's are a bit tougher

    I need to check out a spider jack at some point but I'm counting on the postal service to deliver me something special tonight or tomorrow. Cool work Eric.

    Well since everybody else had a crap day I might as well throw in my experience. Had a job today cutting down 3 camphor trees and chipping the brush, leaving the logs (construction site job). Gave him a price based on my day rate instead of bidding by the tree, rounded up slightly since it was all the way across town with toll roads and bad traffic both ways. Still a bargain price though. Everything was fine until lunch time. We had already filled the chip truck so we went to dump and grab a bite about 12:30. Dumped first then got stuck in traffic trying to find somewhere to eat. I pulled an illegal U turn instead of waiting for 2 more traffic light cycles and pulled into a diner. FHP pulled in behind me 60 seconds later with the lights flashing. Older bull dyke cop, she ticketed me for an illegal U turn then proceeded to do a 'courtesy DOT safety check'. Wrote me up for not having a fire extinguisher and then my tail lights weren't working! They worked Saturday when I got hit in the accident, but they weren't working today. She wrote me up and put my truck Out Of Service meaning I was not allowed to drive it on a public road until it was fixed, or a minimum $2500 fine and impounding the truck if I got caught. At this point I was not doing well. My blood sugar was bottoming out and I couldn't see without my reading glasses. Couldn't even read the ticket, never mind looking for bad fuses without a test light or any tools. Went inside for lunch. Called a tow truck and fiddled with the tail lights while we waited. Made more phone calls to the guy I was working for, etc. Keep in mind I'm 30 miles from home and 8 miles the opposite direction to the job with my bucket truck and chipper. About 3:30 we got the construction super on the phone and he was able to drive up to bring me back to the job and my bucket truck while Ron would wait for the tow truck. The super was also a licensed electrician and had a multi meter, and in about 5 minutes we found the problem and fixed it with $5 of bulbs and fuses from the NAPA a block away. So then I called to cancel the tow truck but he was only 3-4 minutes away. I promised the dispatcher (and owner's wife) that I would gladly pay something for their time to drive out there but we wouldn't need a tow after all. Drove back to the job (in traffic) and then drove home (in rush hour traffic) and I just walked in at 5:30. We still need to go back and finish the job tomorrow instead of doing another job I had scheduled.

    Live edge is so cool, good work. Picture of that gouge Stig. To be honest Butch I’d rather a tool like Stigs go to a craftsman. I’ll do this a while and then be on to something else, maybe collect butterflies. It would likely be sold at my auction for pennies on the dollar when I’m gone.
