    Different approaches for sure and not meant as a criticism, but why not get it leaning over farther in the desired direction before completing your cut and relying on a small hinge and the final pull? Is there an advantage in pretty much only holding it until the final go?

    Agreed. Al is like the cowboy in Steinbeck's "Red Pony". Tough, but keeps one of his hands coated in vaseline in a leather glove so to be kind to his lady friends.

    I wish my truck had such acceleration. When someone gets on my bumper I just slam on the brakes. Nice when in the rear view mirror it seems that you've spilled their coffee. The frustrating thing is when after that person turns off the next person comes up and gets on my bumper too. :X Not just tooling along either, ten kilometers over the speed limit.

    Not an unuseful technique for crane work sometimes when there is imbalance with limbs and lean in the top pick. Whittle it down to the middle and the pick can move about before leaving the cut and the crane can make adjustments. It helps beginners in not getting their saws stuck. I wonder if smart Beavers might also use that to see which way the tree is going to fall so they don't get clobbered?

    Cool you had a good time, Dave. There are so many good musicians, I don't know how you guys do it. Y'all must take good care of your fingernails.

    I know at least one use for antlers besides as an ornament. When ground up, the dust makes a super fine abrasive. Lacquer artists use it for a final polish. I wonder if sword smiths might have as well?

    Wow, an old limb in the hinge area! Kind of nice to have only heard about such a thing and not have suffered from it yourself.

    Grain might be a factor as well. Would it still split up if there was grain runout around and above the hinge? Try it. :D

    I remember a local parade where a bunch of woodworkers got together and marched in it like a military squad manipulating their rifles. Instead of rifles though, they were using battery operated drills.

    I'm not fond of radical Islam either, but I just think it's not a good idea to brag about such things. Maybe it sets a bad precedent? Better to talk quietly among your friends.

    Dry heat is sure better than wet heat. California vs Asia. Rain is nice in the heat sometimes, and it really cleans you out.

    Though it may be taking care of needed business, it seems a little unfortunate to me, bragging about killing a person. No matter who the dead person is. http://www.foxnews.com/us/2017/06/22/canadian-sniper-sets-world-record-with-2-1-mile-pickoff-isis-fighter.html

    51.5C is some very serious heat even for brown skins living far away. Once it got up to 45 in my shop. I found it impossible to work, not that the heat was physically debilitating, but the mental powers couldn't function. I noticed myself walking in circles. Over 50, man I don't know... Probably a bucket of water thrown on your bed before laying down.

    A guy brought me a Stihl 023 leaking gas. It was completely missing the tank vent thing, just the bare plastic nipple was sticking out. A carpenter out of work, I ordered him a Chinese one. Hell, they are almost free and no charge for international shipping. :dontknow:

    I'm not referring to anyone in particular, but asking a question of what seems a likely possibility for someone. I have no idea who doesn't honestly pay their taxes. I always pay them myself in two countries, so as a reference I know it's at least doable.

    Great gift. I need a hedge trimmer too. Some gardener friends tell me to get a light one. They have boxes of electric Ryobis, saying that they burn them up. A gas one seems cool.

    What I'm questioning, Justin, is the morality of people being critical of others for one offense, while giving themselves a pass for another. It seems like you are saying that it's a matter of getting caught or not whether that's a question. Well, it's one way to look at it, people can think how they like, maybe even in glass houses, though it seems a bit hypocritical to me.
