    Lol you are right Gary, I have a hard enough time as is! I can't even imagine being that totally helpless and dependant on other people for my continued life, and I don't want to imagine going out like that. Diving is such a hard job that I almost want to give them a pass for being so horrible with a chainsaw :lol:

    Lol that is hard to watch slow hahahahha. I actually almost went to school there, was gonna weld underwater for a trade. Applied, was accepted, and then an old timer talked me out of it (thank God!!!), due to not as much money as you typically hear of and the life expectancy at the time of a whopping 9 years. Apparently most of them work in dry docks and other shallow waters, with constant crushing dangers, and they make less than I do now. The ones who end up making a killing are doing submersion diving, where they go to extreme depths, under very high pressure with special air mixtures to keep them "safe". Since it takes too long to decompress, they live in a small pressure tank for weeks on end, at those elevated pressures. Wrecks havoc on the body, and greatly reduces lifespan and quality. Most die by rigging problems. Buddy that I was supposed to go with went, and he does what I do now (actually he moved up to management stuff). I still sometimes think what would have been, and then am sooooo happy I didn't lol. https://youtu.be/slq9lkHWs0I https://youtu.be/M3-6PYbLraI

    Similar story, my parents had just gotten the families first cell phone, and they had me take it as I was running errands for them. Put it on the dash of the truck, and then while making a turn it slid out the window. I pulled over, ran back to get it, and just as I got there I watched it get smoked by a semi lol. They had one of those flexible cloth holders for it, which contained all of the pieces more or less, so I handed that to dad when I got back home and he couldn't help but to laugh. One of his co-workers did an awesome prank on him once. He was a teacher, and one day finally broke down and got a laptop. It was pricey, and he completely babied it. So his buddy at work asked to borrow it, and he very reluctantly agreed. They had found a broken one, same model and everything, so they smashed it and put it in a box. A few hours later they brought the box to him and just said sorry don't know what happened lol. He let him stress over it all night too haahahaha

    Like I said, grab one off the curb for free and replace the pellets in the fiberglass tube. They can only be recharged so many times, then they lose their ability to trade ions to drop out the calcium. 99 percent of the time, that's all they need, but while you are at it, soak the valves in vinegar and get new orings. Tada, 100 dollar water softener that will last you 10 plus years, especially if you just change the media when it stops working right. Here's the stuff on Amazon, you might need 2 depending on the size. You might find it cheaper too, this was what I found in 1 min. https://www.amazon.com/ABCwaters-SOFRES1-softening-replacement-softener/dp/B004NERD5E

    Maybe it'll work, dunno. If it even works a little it's that less salt you gotta buy. But I'm gonna put my money on it not working. :(

    He's thinking it doesn't work, and I hate to admit it, I'm having a hard time seeing it too. But I've been wrong before, and one of those would be awesome if they work. If not, grab a water softener, because those do work. A neat trick btw, get one that someone is throwing out, and then swap out the slop inside with new stuff. That's what goes bad on them, but people often just buy a new one because they are scared to work on them. Report back after a year or so and let us know about it. Bob and I both do industrial piping for hire, and if that thing actually worked we would have seen one on a cooling tower or something. They would tolerate a far more elaborate system in the industrial world, but they just flat out don't exist. I've worked in water treatment plants as well, nada. Btw limescale is desirable in potable water pipes, that's how lead pipes were used and were safe. Without that buildup tho, they become bad news.

    Well played sir, well played :lol: So basically you undermine the cog of a snap cut, not worrying about the Dutchman? Yeah that seems much easier if that's it. Always learning something here :rockon:

    Tree09 replied to a thread Roll off truck bodies in Gear Forum
    I would give a hard look into a roustabout bed (oilfield). Does the same thing but doesn't require specially made dumpsters, you can build a simple skid. You can also add gin poles to lift stuff. And you get can one for a one ton. I'm building a skeleton one for my 3/4 ton, do I can switch between pipeline, trees, hauling water, and generic truck tasks. I started a thread on it, but then the wife got really pregnant and I had to stop. Was planning on building it now, but got called back to work. I'll be starting out again soon tho. Messed up thing is, you can probably get one built cheaper than they want for those mini rolloffs, and you could easily make it lighter, so you could haul more.
