    Clarence, I think he was being framed. Lauer, guilty, I mean, isn?t he a liberal. Liberals are always perved out and you gotta be waaaaay perv to be ?exposed? by your perved peers from the bowels of pervtopia. Actually, I will say this, anyone wrongfully accused of sex crimes must suffer about the same or worse as sex crime victims. . . So on that note, I best not condemn. Aug

    Porkbrick replied to a thread TreeStuff inventory? in Gear Forum
    the cabin has been at a bit of a standstill this year. i did get the last of the roof tiles on and the flashing done around the skylights. we lucked out this spring and found a house on 2 acres in town we could afford, so most of this summer has been put into that. now that the kiddo is 2 im hoping to get out to the cabin more often and get things moving again. lots to do!

    Porkbrick replied to a thread This is the Akimbo in Gear Forum
    i voted for bolts in the end product. Rock Thompson was in favor of keeping the bolts. it basically boils down to liability and making the fasteners as tamper proof as possible. the guys in charge of that stuff get pretty nervous about having people taking stuff apart. when we first started negotiating way back i was expecting that they would go that way.i do like how sleek rivets will look and they are for sure stronger than a bolt of the same size. as far as servicing or parts replacement i look at it a few ways. for one, there is no reason to remove any of the bolts in the spine if the cams can be removed without doing so. for two the cams only need replacing if they last less than the safe lifespan of the tool and i think, with the adjust-ability of the akimbo and the right materials, they can last. as of right now we've made the cam axles of a design that allows the cams to be removed without disassembling the whole device. i doubt i will ever convince them to make it an end user replaceable part, but it will be replaceable. i obviously am a guy who likes tampering with his own gear, and i know there are lots of guys like me out there, but i can understand why it makes their legal dept very nervous when you start talking about tinkering.

    Porkbrick replied to a thread Swivel on bridge? in Climbing Forum
    i use the RE hydra swivel pulley on my bridge. it was supplied for me at work. im not really a fan of having a swivel on my bridge but i love having the three attachments. the pulley make it much less abrasive on the bridge than a paw or similar. im kind of getting used to the swivel part and liking it more and more.

    I probably would do it again Paul. i cant help myself. it certainly has been stressful at times, but im kind of flattered that people want something i built so bad their driven to ranting about it on the internet. ive been making things with my hands for as long as i remember. the Akimbo is just the first thing ive made that really took on a life of its own.

    they're telling me spring 2018. im going to have 100 of the first batch set aside for the gofundme donors who didnt get the silver version. we spent a fair bit of time the last month making sure all of the critical components could be redundant without changing the design too much. definitely looking at using rivets for all the joints that never have to come apart.
