    Is that what it would be? R12? I have a can of R600 laying around somewhere.

    Hope it's a chew on the power. Compressor would usually just hum at least if windings were bad, take a second to trip.... Usually.... I like those R12 freezers. I have a few pounds of it. Isobutane mixes nice with it as well.

    No idea yet Peter. Silly thing must be 60 years old. I saved it from certain doom in a land fill. We have run it for probably 8 years. My pork was soft, but there was still a lot of frost on stuff, so I reckon its okay. Its about the only load on a 20 amp circuit, and she trips instantly. I will have a look later. Could be something as silly as a mouse chewing a wire.

    What happened with the freezer? Thermostats usually go on the old ones, $24 cad for a generic switch up here. Start cap may be? Newer ones have those god awful thermal start discs, they shatter, a generic quick start up here is about $12 cad. Three wires and yer off. I have to say about my GF she likes to keep plenty of extras on hand, much like myself. And we both rarely pay full price, we always grab up things only on sale.

    Preaching to the choir Jim. I'm the same way. When I go shopping we don't go back to the store for weeks. When I grab the last gallon of milk that means we're out.

    My wife and I have differing opinions about things. When I go to the store I buy two cans of coffee. When she goes she buys one. One is none, two is one. If we ever have a disaster I am going to rub her nose in it so hard! When I open the fridge and see the gallon jug of milk is half gone I holler that we are out of milk. Okay, I may be descending into lunacy.......

    i think the 4 basic differances Nylon vs. Polyester, each point to Polyester in this usage: 1>as Nick says Polyester has better UV resistance. 2>Also ; As nylon slurps up 1/2 it's weight in water ratings drop. . 3>And Polyester better abrasion resistance >> of particular concern in this usage of constant high frictions on 1 area 4>Polyester less dynamic stretch >> of particular concern in this usage; >>cord too short to give dynamics to system anyway, would get that from host line or anchor etc. >>but can be harder to work hitch loose to move if stretched closed around host . Would favor a range of 50-75% host diameter for cord. >>larger than 75% host diam. doesn't grab rite, less can seize too easily to make less workable fer us. . Single leg of host support delivering to 2 legs of cord support about 1/2 host diameter >> is fair rough math for even weakness of chain. . These are tight bights by cord around host; the stiffer the cord the less 'strength' as turns tight bight and compressed fibers in cord on tight turn wouldn't carry load/so cord weaker, the way i see it. Stiffer cord, more resistance to tight bight, the more compressed fibers, when only tensioned fibers can be used. . Spliced perm.eyes rule, Double Noose i favor for temp.eye; favour crossing outer Turn of Dbl.Noose over inner to solidify and make more stable.similar reasons for same in Dbl.Fisherman's: Dbl. is stronger, favour crossing Working End over 1st Turn of Round Turn for Dbl.Fisherman's i favour eye to eye builds rather than sling shown (personal preference, sling still 2 legs of support) >>seize down Bitt.end w/tape for extra security Round Turn of Dbl.Noose gives back some 'strength'; >> that is lost from the bend of the 1st Turn bending Standing Part, deforming form 'pure inline' >>as the 2nd Turn(RT) then hugs the deformity and 'manages' it better, giving it less 'impact of change'(?) i visualize difference between TV power cord bend going into system >> or upgraded to grommet, managing/softening/allowing less impact of change from bend of cord into system (but then i also visualize rope carrying tension as a kin to water pressure in a hose or electrical 'pressure' in a wire..) . Animals can chew ropes left overnite etc. Polyester/Nylon pretty chemical stable, but notably feline uric acid very bad! >>Constantly treat Life equipment as dear friend that saves life; almost Holy >> every day, in every way, so permeates very Naturally thru everything you do.. Put lifeline in with throwline, pull throwline back into place with lifeline at nite, leave that in over nite. >> when ready put lifeline back into place with throwline already there. . i think we'd favour facing krab gate away from hard surface

    Like you said earlier, you need the space and gear to lay in your supplies.

    Damnation! My old ass Borg Warner freezer out in the shed just quit. Now I only have 2.5 freezers. Time to start shopping. Thinking a 20 cubic foot upright conventional freezer should fill the position.

    I think you and I would get along just fine Jim. I am very much a loner. If I hadn't married and had a child I could easily hermit up and be perfectly fine with it.

    Omg, dude, you are hilarious. Jay, interesting indeed. Re sensing moods in people, back in the day, under the influence of a certain mind altering drug, I felt like I could tell exactly what passing strangers were thinking by looking at their expressions. Of course I never did tap them on the shoulder to see if I was correct :|:

    Oh, the parkinson's thing sounds like just excitement, they do that an awful lot, just stand there basically shivering before being let loose. Of course, if they were in the middle of a hunt and already had a lot of exercise, then maybe they were cold. Or maybe they were just real pumped about Round 2! Flash, good name. We had a 'Rocket', lordy he was well named. An 18 hole golf course in the dead of winter, he could basically hit up every hole and swim across the 50 yard wide salt water pond chasing the geese, in about 5 min flat. He was crazed :lol:

    When we would stop for a break or to come up with a new plan it looked like Flash had Parkinson's. Turn him loose and he never thought about it. That was a good dog, seems like he got cancer and died. He also had a female that was useless. She attacked the kids and he killer her. He has another one now I think. Seems like there is a few breeders up here in the frozen ass north.

    Cool! When working/running they can take most any cold conditions. They have pretty short hair, that has to make a difference compared to a Lab, for example. They sleep in bed under many layers, all night, lol.
