    Better get out of the biz BEFORE he falls, again. He video narrated that he blacked-out on the highway while jamming out, en route to post-accident climbing job number 1. https://youtu.be/0CBwJHhCMls

    Rig and Ring is a good time saver over a block, as it's installable and retrievable from the ground, and cheaper, lighter, and more streamlined. I'll natural-crotch-rig more than anything else though.

    Is the exhaust clean? I start and stop my saws a lot. Twice, my new 193t plugged the exhaust and fouled the plug. The mechanic said to let it get hotter by running it longer . Probably like a smouldering woodstove fire causing creosote build-up.

    Actually a larger radius than conventional rings. Not sure what the bending radius is, though. https://www.bend-rightrings.com/

    Two loop runners/ sling, plus a biner does a lot more, IMO. I don't like to leave with 2/1. When everything looks hand-manageable from the ground, its easy to find that one with a funny torque built-in, or a bit too heavy. Slinging each side of the cut and clipping together saves your body on those that are a bit too much to be gentle on the shoulder/ wrist/ elbow.FWIW.

    P.S. compliment not criticism. Scaring stuff makes money. Breaking stuff loses money. :lol:

    If it never breaks, the mechanics will go hungry.

    Long before he falls... He blacked-out screaming along to music or something while he was driving to his post-recover jobsite. YouTube does very little to teach judgment.

    Ambitions of wood working projects, and selling raw materials. My full time employee starts back on Monday. He knows more about milling and turning than I do. I shoots guns, so he will know more about gun grip blanks, turning blanks, etc.

    Just a bit of sanding and oil on a rough cut little piece I happened to bring in...inspiring! Still could be much smoother, shot in better light, with a better camera.

    Good day today. TGIF. D hid her lunch box when I went to the truck to take some stuff out this morning. Stalling going to school. Once in the truck, easy peasy. Bid a job. Visited a site for a job I bid a year ago for a repeat customer. Did a bit of prep work on the site. Custy wanted to know if it was going to be harder with a pile of excess soil right in the tiny drop zone.:whine: I'll move it with the mini for him. Good to get up off the ground for a little line setting prep and scoping the integrity of the tops. Wanted a bit of exercise today. 4 maples wedged together. Luckily its on a slope, above the propane tank, and the maple tops are dying. Something about lots of decay in the butts. There is a big, big fir near that can serve as a high rigging point and TIP if needed, so there's always an out.

    How about kiln drying small pieces in a kitchen oven, or what about a small home made kiln? These are from a summer stump, cut on a table saw, and oven-dried.

    I read that as Fancy Tree Work, plain camera work. No drones, hollywood effects, POV cams, cams being launched with tops.

    Looking for advice. I'm finding a bunch of figured wood lately. Trying to preserve blocks cut from stumps, and burls. Maple has a lot of figure and burl. Madrona had root burl, which I haven't looked into yet, but will be on the look-out. Stump blocks have less obvious end-grain, and pieces of wood are all different shapes from being cut out of stumps. When the end-grain was more evident on some blocks from this summer, I got it all painted. Is there a way around this? Maybe I need to use a sprayer rather than brush. Someone here mentioned this for some application. http://www.leevalley.com/en/wood/page.aspx?p=20048&cat=1,43456,43390 Right now, I'm cutting a lot of spalted and burl maple blocks out of a huge stump. A pressure washer has been more of a help than I could have imagined. Lots of sharpening. Found a few good sized rocks, and a few hidden inclusions with pockets of small gravel. Learning as I go.

If it looks like I asked a question, but put a period, it's probably a question.
Don't know why I'm question-mark challenged online. 😀 New Year's Resolution, better proof reading.
