    Look at this sweet "boom tie" Pretty far out hey small diameter limb in the top but supported by the main stem up higher. And even smoothly going through a pulley on the bottom side of the limb. Placed me magically over my work. Principal very much like fishing vessel boom.

    It's probably not even called a snipe if it's on the log. I can't remember but it has the effect. Jer?

    Cory, I was sniping to break the hinge if necessary because the face cuts were a little shallow. I don't always do it. I guess I was in a snipe mood.

    They are sewn for dedicatedness. This kit was a prototype that I still use so I don't have to buy one of the final kits. The ones for sale, are not tightly sewn to the biner like these. There is a heavy rubber ring instead which allows you to rotate the carabiner on the sling for longer wear. If a sling were to be destroyed entirely. The new sling would need to be girth hitched on.

    Thanks for that Sean. No doubt itd work and live to fight another day. You could add an infinite amount of lines and fail safes, to be sure....but at some point you draw the line at what is practical and cost effective. I could gained a strength advantage even by wrapping the lines around the log from left to right, instead of right to left before setting the bowlines....but then it would've been harder to initially get the logs rolling down the hill thereafter. Thankfully I didn't live to regret it :)

    You'd have to draw that for me, Sean. But no doubt, there's lots of other ways to set it up. I was happy that there was plenty stretch in the line, due to the distance between the log and ground anchors. And I took an extra turn around the log before setting a running bowling.....so not a huge amount of bite at the knots. Consider also that those lines were positioned and set to hold back the logs as I winches them down the hill thereafter. So, I needed to keep it simple.

    I remember seeing this job on the TH. I like the Cory question and also the answer. I've stopped some massive forces a few times, some which resembled the Gulivers Travels tie-down.

    Thanks all. I had 2 3/4 lines and I x 5/8. Yale, Samson and Teufelberger....all pretty stretchy. The highest line was just a failsafe in case the top broke loose....which it did but without going anywhere. The Bottom 2 did the work. The homeowner delt with all the lumber....I just had to leave them safe and accessible. He'd put a road in at the bottom, but was worried about the whole front row of trees since scaping away such a big area of the embankment. He does intend to replant. Cory I set the lines on the log relative to their ground anchors, and the direction of fall. It looked right when I set it up, so I didn't over think it. As you can see, it worked out fine.

    Thanks guys. Like entering a whole new world to me. A completely different focus and way of thinking than what I'm familiar with. But I'm enjoying it immensely. As I improve I'll hopefully put some more stuff up here.

    I had piano lessons at age 10, for about 9 months. Wasn't really interested, and rarely had a piano to practice on that wasn't full of mice. Tried again at about 30 for a short time, as I was getting the inclination..... but it was very short lived as I was just too stretched with other stuff. Anyway, finally at 44 Ive found some time and enthusiasm over the last couple of months to put in quite a big effort. Its not happening near as fast as I thought, but am at a stage now where its starting to sound something like music. Been working on a few tunes. I just need to stick at it this time, and keep up the momentum. If I can do a full year Id except to be making some progress. Here's one that my Grandad used to play back in Ireland. Nothing like to his standard, but its early days. I made the vid to send to my Dad just today, but I thought Id share it here too. <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/1r_yw4YkXVA" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    Back of hinge did not need to be so tall but it definitely didn't hurt. Saw was running out. Old chain way down with questionable bar. Kept banana cutting. We talked to Neighbor's. Butch, felling saved time.

    We were going to play with those machines moving things around for fun, as it was a no cleanup job. But the weather was too gross, we would have destroyed the yard.
