    Mellow replied to a thread Sharpening hedge trimmer in Chainsaws!
    For years we had a contract clearing billboards. I trimmed thousands of trees with hedge trimmers. I never sharpened them; they always died before they got dull. And for what it's worth, other than the aesthetic aspect of it, the trees didn't seem to give a crap about being topped every year or two. They grew back with a vengeance.

    Mellow replied to a thread F-450 Chip Truck in The Trading Post
    What size is the chip box? I might be half interested but you're pretty far away from Florida. And I'm actually looking for something bigger. edit: my bad. I just saw it's 10.5 feet.

    What kind of chainsaw was he using? It sounded exactly like my dad's blue Craftsman from the 1960's. Brought back memories of my childhood.

    We do get the occasional foot dragger who insists on some obscure document before paying, like "Additional Named Insured." :/: And typically they wait until we've contacted them several times over several weeks to tell us about this missing paperwork. :X

    I had to go to Google Maps to check that out. Huh! Who'da thunk it? I'm guessing it's near Lewiston; that's about the only place I can see with a large river heading west.

    No. I reloaded shotgun shells for my dad when I was a kid. I even bought a shotgun reloader kit a few years ago but I've never used it. It's so much easier to point and click and have a heavy box delivered to my door two days later. :|:

    Mellow replied to a thread Official Guns Thread in The Rec Room
    The caliber is 5.7 x 28mm. It's a high velocity light weight round. The pistol carries 20+1 rounds and is still very light(about half a pound lighter than a Glock 17). The ballistic tip bullet is designed to fragment to reduce over-penetration. It makes a nice self defense carry weapon and it fits my hand perfectly. It's just a fun gun to shoot, especially in low light when you can see the flames shooting out of the muzzle. Other advantages include low recoil, a flat trajectory, very accurate, and it's extremely reliable(over 2,500 rounds through my other FN with no problems at all). The downsides are ammo cost and that darn safety. Most of my other pistols don't have a safety so I have to retrain my brain every time I shoot the FN.

    Congrats on that! We have a Tree Risk Assessment Qualification(TRAQ) offered by ISA. It's over $600 and I'm not sure the cost is justified. I've long suspected that the ISA is more of a revenue generating machine rather than a training institution.
