    Telling it like it is and hating is two different thing IMO.

    I had a call 20 years back from a guy who had a pile of moldering old conifer clippings at the bottom of a steep garden. He said I could take it free for the village November the 5th bonfire. Was quite miffed when I refused, muttering something about ?you try and do something for the community.......? etc.

    A Craigslist ad here a while back for “furniture grade walnut lumber”. Scroll down to the pictures and there it is. Right between two houses that are twenty feet apart, garage ten foot behind it and a fence up against it. “Buyer must remove brush and stump”. I was busy or I would’ve stopped by the place just to make them think they had a sucker on the hook.

    Sherrill is notorious for it, shit they ripped of the "Ropetek Comms" and I was doing business with them. Wankoff's reply was "why wouldn't we rip of an idea that makes money?" this after them telling me for years that they didn't condone altering PPE. I strongly urge folks not to buy from them , remember Treestuff is Sherrill too

    "Thousands of jobs making plastic bags" ? "Blue state ideology" ? "Conservative homeless and poor" ? I gotta call bs. Overpopulation by floods of immigrants and not enough industry leads to cali's problems, not to mention if I was gonna do drugs and live on the beach, that's the spot lol. Basically California is the new New York city from the early 1900s

    Try soaking the cable in penetrating oil, and then working it back and forth a ton. Go so far as spraying the part in the cab. Unless the cable has a rubber coating on it, it should loosen it because it's built like a slinky. The goal is to get oil on the inside of the cable and then break the rust free. Worst case you have to swap it out, not the end of the world either. You also might want to try disconnecting the cable at the valve and then operating the valve. While you have it off pull it out farther and really pour some oil in the sleeve part of the cable, and work it back and forth. .If it's still lifting slow and such, and your fluid levels are ok, it could be a seal in the valve. There could also be air in the cylinders from sitting so long, so bleeding them or even just lifting it up and down repeatedly will help it. When equipment sits forever, small problems like this start to appear. The seals dry out, stuff corrodes together, etc. Fortunately you should be able to get it working like new again with minimal parts. Now would be a good time to grease the pivot hinges and scissor mechanism as well. Check for rust and eaten away steel around those critical components, but whatever you do, mechanically lock the bed upright. People have died working on dump trucks by trusting the hydraulics to hold it upright.

    Bcbs pulled the same stunt here too, and the contract was supposed to expire right when our son was due. I have bcbs, and they fixed it in the 11th hour thank God, but still.

    There are constantly folks here who try to sell the removal as a do it yourself for wood turners. Quite funny. 2-3 years ago a group of turners hired me to take some do it yourself trees like that down for them. I just put them on the ground, they did the clean up and kept the wood. Big size walnuts. They were quite happy about paying me.

    Is it whining or is it just not lifting quickly? Lifting at all? Is it kind of stuttering? Does it go down quickly?

    Spaying it with one of the parraffin based wood coating products like " Arbor seal" is the easiest way. It can be applied with a paint brush, too. I'm currently preparing a bunch of turning wood for a Norwegian turner, who will come down to pick it up in spring, in exchange for a lot of vacuum packed dried fish. The doggies love that. I'm sealing the whole lot with Arbor seal. Bob, if you want to dry burl bowls fast, then rough turn them to a couple of inches thick, toss them in pure alcohol ( Moonshine will work!) for a forthnight, then air dry them. Goes real fast and they usually don't chaeck.

    exactly......I had with similar problem. Make sure it is routed correctly. You could have someone stay in truck while you crawl under and actuate manually to see if there is a difference. BE SUPER CAREFUL.....

    Good information guys. The main reason I never bothered with burls is I figured I’d be dead before they dried.
