    I think I pretty much get the concept of both of these techniques. They are both trying to do the same thing but obviously in a different way. Because I am not doing anything at the moment and I'm sitting at my computer instead of one fingering it on my phone I will use a hard bound book as an analogy. Take a hard bound book and lay it on it's back facing up. Lets say this book is the wood directly behind your undercut, essentially the hinge. With the book closed tightly it is very stiff. Now make a vertical cut at the precise point where your undercut meets the hinge. You have now opened the front hard cover of the book allowing the pages to flex in that direction. But the wood fibers (pages) are all stuck together and especially stuck together considering the back hard cover is still attached to them. So at the back of the hinge make another vertical cut. Now you have made your wood fibers very flexible and your pages even though they are all still held together will bend. Allowing these fibers to bend means they will hold the tree longer and hopefully long enough for the undercut to close which has now given the tree its desired direction. The down side to this is that with a massive amount of force pulling at the bending fibers it can tear them right out of the stump before the hinge closes which will result in a lose of direction. Different species will hinge better than others and the amount of hinge needed on each individual tree will very. Too much will result in the hinge breaking right off with no flex and to little will result in the hinge being ripped right out of the stump. I hope I wrote that so it makes sense to someone other than myself.

    I guess one could if one was a masochist. This one will only be used as the go-between either winch/skidder line, forwarder and the Dyneema rope. The very large diameter should be good for the Dyneema.

    Sean I like the gear analogy. It's crazy how apprentices/greenhorns always try to get things their way over the senior guys. Makes them feel smart when people wish they would just STFU. Sent from my SM-G903W using Tapatalk

    Raj replied to a thread Storing saw chain in Chainsaws!
    I'd don't keep my saws in my trucks overnight, and I might only grab a saw or two or three depending, so keeping a spare chain in each vehicle has been just an extra thing to think about. If I can figure a way to mount one to each scabbard it might make things a bit easier. Silicone?

    Well, turned out we didn't win the bid for the logging contract in the lical State forest. Some little 1 and a half man gypo outfit bid way lower than us. I think trying to do it at that price will break them, but that is not my problem. Now I'll have to get back to the State forester we've been logging for the last two winters and set something up there. Winning the other one would have been nice, because it is way closer to home.

    Interesting concept. Not something I'd trust in a situation where it really mattered, though. I'll play around with it come logging season, if I get a chance.

    Lots of fluids will thin the mucus and help it move. Steam, too. A guy on TB found some slim respirators he's using, due to red oak dust causing him regular sinus infections. We both got busy. I was going to buy the respirator that didn't fit him right. He's recommending them. I just use the Home Depot $30 cartridge dust filters as needed. Masks don't both me much to wear.

    Easy day of removing a broken off, dead, crispy fir from a maple. Bid two jobs at the same place and neighbor's house for maple removals. One for a multiple times times topped, dying maple with tons of burl and music wood,if not rotten. Luckily, its over the well, electrical box for the well, and a light. Utilities can be taken down. Other maple is just pruning, hard, hard leaning maple over the house, growing out from under the neighbors 4' firs, over the house and new fence. GRCS will help on that job, and get its trial run for me. I could possibly use a 60' genie-lift, but probably too short. Been nice having my old employee back, while laid off from his $32/ hour iron-working rigging Union job. No FNG non-sense. He plans to go home every day in one piece, no near-misses. Good communication. Gears all turn at the same speed. Too many FNGs want to try to change gears, turn them at different speeds, not lube them, when told to turn the gears, they want to ask if its really what should happen, if its shouldn't be the way their couple months experience makes them figure it should be done. He's happy to have the work. His wife stopped by to meet me while she was in town, and brought homemade BBQ sauce and Blue Dream.

    Not work related. Everyone in my family has gotten it and other people I know too. No Neti pots here either. It's not a real sinus thing. Bronchitis I'm fairly certain. I've done what I always do when I get sick. No drinking and up the fruit and vegetable intake. It's just been lingering and lingering which I'm not used to. A bud of mine said it took him about four weeks to recover and even then he'd get a tickle in his throat now and then.

    It turned out to not much at all. No support to be tearing up the field or anything. I never could come up with a plan that seemed implementable and not completely overwhelming. The more I seemed to look into it the more and more of a pita everything seemed to be. We planted a couple hundred or so garlics this fall in raised beds just for our own use.
