    Explain it to me then as I obviously don't understand in your eyes, so you should be able to if you understand basic physics quite simply, in a way that we can all comprehend. Give it to me baby.

    To me then, that's why it didn't work. Too much force, pretty simple physics when you think about it.

    Still snow on the shady side of the slopes at 6-7 thousand feet, here. Haven't seen that for about 20 years. Temps, that high up, are running 75-80 and dry. Going up this weekend to San Hedrin, about 6000 feet, to see the late bloom.

    gf beranek replied to a thread Wedge Belts in Gear Forum
    My first Tree Care Industry Show (TCI) was in Charlotte, N.C, November 1996. Not that long ago, really. Most of the people I met there were long time mid-west and east-coast private tree company owners, and then there were the many young-un's starting up. Much to my surprise most of those people told me they had never used a wedge in their career, and most of the rest had not a clue as to what a wedge was. It was culture shock at the time, but it's change significantly in the years since the internet. Today most those boys know the importance of the wedge in their work. Good post,and I like the pouch. You made that out of an old Wes Co high-top. Sexy.

    Oh, there's always lots to learn, as I, too, have experimented using questionable techniques working with trees just to see if the results would ever be consistent enough to draw firm conclusions. Since trees are so highly variable in nature the results of some experiments never were consistent enough to draw any firm conclusion. Well, other than, stick with approved and recognized techniques. Nonetheless it is fun sometimes, often frightening, to experiment with trees.

    Presently 73 degrees in Ft. Bragg. A bit warm, but not unpleasant.

    Stump Analysis 101. I love Jed's stumps. They are all perfect. Least the one's he shows us, anyway. We all can not make perfect stumps every time. Fact, I'm been ashamed of some of my own, from time to time, but I strive to do the best I can. A quote from Jon Taylor of Ft. Bragg, an old cohort of mine, "Sometimes, Jer, to get a tree to go where you want you got to make an ugly stump." He said that to me over 40 years ago, and he's still falling timber today. Murph, not having been there, the geometry of the stump doesn't appear too out of the norm, for dealing with a side leaner anyway, but I can't help but agree with Brian about the evidence of whittling the stump with a compromised bar and chain. Been there and done myself that a few times, even. Now, "You know when you made a really bad stump when you cut it off at ground level, and try to hide it."

    Ugh, hate hearing about motor problems, especially a blown one. UGH Have you figured out if it is worth fixing? https://content.govdelivery.com/accounts/FLFFWCC/bulletins/1a2683e I got this in an email this morning, good news! Talked to a friend yesterday at lunch, he caught a few in the last week or two. John may hook up with him and drop a line. On a side, note the strawberry grouper we caught in the bahamas were not worth posting pictures of. Good time and good eats but not picture worthy!

    The process has been considerably slowed down by the potential cost of it. The design shown above is getting out of hand in terms of cost and we are re-evaluating it. The project is still on with Rock Exotica though, not to fear. We are also considering a slimmed down and cost reduced model hoping to get the retail price below $300.
