    Dan, what did you say to Palmer in reply ? Was he saying that the tapered back hinge won't help keep a side leaner stay on course with the face cut ? or was he saying that on a fair standing tree, a tapered hinge won't make it deviate from the face ? Two different things. Is your article still viewable somewhere ? Thanks

    Same deal Rich. But there's just me and Dave on this job, and much less mass to deal with. Thanks

    Both lines are sharing the weight here, to an extent. Any kind if fall/arrest rigging is a shock load, but so long as you don't overload the system it doesn't really matter.

    Sure. We have the Dual bollard to control the lines at the base of the big fir tree behind. The zip line goes from the bollard, up through a block in the fir, then through/past the cedar and is tied off at the landing down by the chipper. The control line, again starts at the bollard, goes up through a block in the fir, 2 ft below the first block, then is tied off at the pulley which slides up and down the zip line. But I tie it an leave a very long tail, which I then use to rig the logs each time. So Dave locks off the zip line each time, and let's the logs run with the control line until he's over the landing, then he releases the zipline etc. The control line is also a haul back line to get the rigging back me. Pics would've been better, but I didn't think to take any. It's a really simple setup.

    Job from earlier this week. Took me and Dave all day. Shrubs and sprinklers underneath. The big fir behind lent a hand. <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/Idv4J9mujA8" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    Things are really busy now. I have weeks if work ahead, and it keeps coming. I'm getting referrals from people I don't even know. For example, yesterday I went to a site under new ownership where I'd supposedly taken down 5 trees previous, which is not true, and I told them that. But the new owner had my card, given to him by the previous....its a bit odd. I could definitely do with some full time help. Not just on site, but because of the time needed for estimates and paperwork etc. It's tempting, but I'm going to resist and ride it out. I'm not sure for how long though.

    Yep, I was simply comparing aluminum to steel. Better heat control with aluminum. Big Aluminum Ring sounds great to me. David was always going to do it. Georgio jumped on it rather opportunistically but hey, shite or get off the pot, right? People can only see a certain number of things through, David's got lots of plans but can't meet his own criteria. Me either. aug

    LOL, at DD "losing it," not really, he's always been half unwound. As far as the article. If you know the behind the scenes maneuverings of Buckingham and others you can see through the article a bit to the agenda. People pull strings because they can. David fights the game rather than plays the game. Makes things harder on himself in my opinion. aug
