    Good luck with the surgery Jay, I hope it goes well for you. Had my eyes tested last year and everything was ok, still don't need glasses.

    Ex cop/handyman from the local pub under priced me on a job a couple of years ago. He hired a polesaw to do it and ended up dropping it in the pool.:laughing6: Think he got away with it though.

    I stay logged in just about everywhere except my bank and paypal. Strong pass words and all very different is really important with those sort of things and email. Forums, not so much. Bank and government sites log you out anyway after a few minutes.

    Pretty dry at the moment so not much humidity today. Next month it usually rains, if it's hot then it's a killer.

    It is a bit warm. I did some spiky palms this morning, finished at 12.30 and it was 106F in the shade, and that's really 11.30. Mid 40's by the time I left the dump. Not going to be a fun week.

    Steve Mack replied to a thread Which Chainsaw in Climbing Forum
    I've never run a 193 but there's a few here that do and seem to like them. I bought a 190T for a back up once, quick smart sold that and bought another 200. The 193 is a big improvement on them I think. If you want to make money buy good stuff in the first place and you won't go wrong, that's always worked for me.

    I'd forget the 200T for $2000 for a start, and probably the second hand 201T unless you can have a demo of it. Better off buying a new 201T, I think RRP is around $1500 now but you should be able to get one a bit cheaper. What about a 150T for now, not much more than the 193T and it'd handle what you seem to be doing. A lot of us got by with saws that wouldn't compare to one of those and a lot here love them.

    Ha, just looked at the Quick Links and 9 out of 11 are looking at the Trump thread. Maybe I should post some hedge trimming pics. :(

    Sad about Mary Tyler Moore as well. I remember her from Richard Diamond one of our first tv series. You never saw her face, just her legs and heard her voice. Starred David Janssen, he was in some good stuff. Good show. Might watch it now, there's nothing much on tv tonight. <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/UyuTBASP_8g" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    Steve Mack replied to a thread The RIP Thread... in Odds and Ends
    It's a shame how Jimmy Snuka ended up. Mario Milano died on Christmas Eve at 81, I only just heard about it. He was Australia's favourite wrestler for a long time, even though he was really Italian. The ladies loved him (including my grandmother) and no one could believe it when he went to the dark side, but he came back after a few months and went on for years as a good guy. Good story about him here. http://www.smh.com.au/comment/obituaries/obituary-wrestler-mario-milano-became-migrants-hero-20161223-gthiko.html

    Steve Mack replied to a thread Little Chippers in Gear Forum
    Sean had a thread about them. http://masterblasterhome.com/showthread.php?18367-super-small-chipper-homeowner-sized-chipper-for-small-jobs&highlight=bonel Stephen has one so do I. (Post 123 in that thread) His is 18hp I think and mine is 13hp Honda. Hadn't used it in years but I'm sure glad I didn't sell it, been using it quite a bit lately as my other chipper is in Sydney. It's made me quite a few dollars over the years, bought it March '95 and it still goes well and I've put some stuff through it. Just need to keep the knives sharp.

    Similar to what I use but mine doesn't come apart without tension but still unties easily. Been using it for years, doubled up or tripled you can pull just about anything. I carted cardboard for a while years ago, talk about slippery. Pre ratchet straps and loads had to be really tight, always triple. To stop this one coming apart if you don't want it to just put a sort of half hitch with that big loop, it won't tighten up but it'll stop it coming undone. Good video Muggs.
