    I once lost an entire rigging bag, 200' of 9/16 stable braid, some one ton slings and an arborist block. Fell out of the bucket truck basket on the way to the dump. Searched high and low for it went on the local talk show to post a lost and found...never found it. BUT the property manager of my Mr. Moneybags client heard me on the radio, called me and that's how I got the job working there. Silver lining. PS Brian (sqwerl) heard the story and sent me a spare block and sling...still using it!

    SeanKroll replied to a thread Timber Framing in Odds and Ends
    I wonder about a simple timber frame design, and simple roof. It would be cool to build a few wood sheds for people, after creating the logs, and firewood to put within. Those in-the-round pieces are what I have in mind. One customer has a basic, 4-post, timber-framed firewood shed, with a gable roof, built by the previous owners. It's withstood a long time out in the weather. The plywood roof is failing, though. I'll look at it some more when I prune their orchard soon. Seems like a good concept to sell. Don't know what to do for roofing. How would one put a flat roof onto round rafters? Would that be reasonable to freehand-chainsaw rip along two lines to make a flat surface on each rafter for plywood/ osb? How would one mark the lines on all the rafters?

    Pruned a big flowering cherry, and 4 fruiting apples. First time I've blown snow off trees to prune them. Put on ground only, so no worry about clean-up. Happy, repeat customers. He's recovering from a put-off-way-too-long rotator cuff surgery. She described it as his shoulder was sorta mush, so they worked with the mush. Longer than normal recovery. I expect lots of muscle atrophy for the time he's not going to be using it. Reminder to do my Rotator Cuff Physical Therapy. Props to Rico for the additional two: banded pull-apart, and banded face-pulls. I wear safety glasses with that one. My old theraband started to tear apart, so I got a new one at Target, under the product of a handled resistance training band. Under $15. I like it better with handles than without, as was the way of the old one from the physical therapist.

    It's awesome that you're getting "into" it Butch. Drumming will go as far as your imagination takes it. Start watching at 2:30 or right from the start if you understand French. Guy Nadon may or may not be a little crazy but he has some neat ideas. Watch for the rivets. <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/TIJAXORP5HQ" frameborder="0" allow="autoplay; encrypted-media" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    Spent a good part of the day driving to a hardwood yard near Lancaster, PA to buy a load of red birch for a project. Nice folks, though it was leftover, picked-over, end of a pallet, so-so-quality wood. Got what I needed and the price was adjusted, so no harm, just more time on the jointer/planer/saw... ...and no ticket (though I'll have to watch the mail for a week or so :) )

    emr replied to a thread Roll off truck bodies in Gear Forum
    I have contacted Switch N Go and they will put the bodies on any one ton or bigger. I really like the size and capacity of our 550 so I'd probably stick with that size. I have not looked at how much weight we'd be able to haul with that set up but I'm guessing it would be sufficient. Sent from my SM-G935V using Tapatalk

    I like storm work. Never had a nasty person with it, they are just relieved that someone is going to be able to take care of it for them. The damage has been done, if I can get it removed without causing any more then that's good. A little additional collateral damage seems to be ok...like I had to use my secateurs to snip some small broken bits off the rhododendron and rose that were below...

    The drummers I've worked with who used one used it as a "third" type cymbal...crash, ride, and sizzle. Supposedly there are a lot of variables to the effect you get...hole number & placement, type metal and weight of rivets, etc.

    The rivets cause a quick decay - I think I slapped in too many, but that's an easy fix with the rivets I bought. They just flare out (using a standard screwdriver) and can easily be squished back together and pulled out. The hole won't affect the sound. I'm seeing that some drummers use only 2 or 4. Hey Ryan, check it out - in an experiment to see what an 18" high-hat would sound like I slapped the two crash cymbals on the high-hat and guess what! They sound great! And get this - because the bottom crash was 20" I can play it or the top 18 individually! Or, hit them both (open) at the same time! That's 3 functions on one stand! Crazy! And it looks even crazier! You outta give it a shot, just for shits and giggles - I'm sure you have the cymbals to play around with.

    So basically you drill holes, install the rivet, mushroom the male end and voila. Might try it with a bargain bin crash for my first one. Had one of those sizzler chains when I was a kid but who wants a crash that never stops ringing. Sent from my SM-G903W using Tapatalk

    Ha! Unfortunately the heater quit in the road patrol. Sitting still in a cab at 20 below is hard on my feetsees! Was hoping that maybe the County would come plow the COUNTY road.....you know....since they jacked up my taxes........but alas....nope. I guess I will continue to plow the County road for free. That way we can continue to participate in the local economy......

    We might need them here if things keep up. Winter continues to kick the sh-t out of us here. We're setting records near daily for cold in my locale. -22c yesterday morning at my place and this morning the batteries gave up in my outside monitor lol. I'd give up to I think. No end in sight to the cold and more snow coming at the end of the week.
