Don't think I'm too proud to be a regular there Jerr!
Did you know Jerry Lewis was a fast draw pistol expert?
You're blowin my gig Blackie!
I like to think of it as a six shooter with a loop stickin outta the end of the barrel, and pullin the trigger fires the bullet that does the cutting.
You have to cut something? Seems wasteful.
Dad always yelled at me for not drawing on both sides of the paper.
Is this not a reasonable place to park?
The bureaucracy is expanding to meet the needs of the expanding bureaucracy.
Better to have 2 triggers : The first one activates the mechanism shooting the cord around the limb, catching it back and tending it. The second one cuts/releases the cord.
Well...isn't there someone said KISS ?
No no no.
More like those toys mexican children play with!
A handle peg, with a two foot string tied to it, with the other attached to the bottom of a tiny wooden barrel.
The top of the peg mates to the top of the barrel.
The trick's being able to swing it up n stab it just so, yu see.
Lived a few years in Mexico as a five n six year old. Strange, I was fairly fluent speakin spanish as a child, but lost that ability completely upon return to the states. I even attended a one room school there. Trouble makers got held underwater in the courtyard fountain till they blew bubbles!
Those caballeros are even better n Roy Roger's with their leather lariats able to snag a horse by a hoove!
Seems to me a couple of webbing loops would do the trick iffin you need anything at all. Just keep tossing them to the ground and every now and then have someone send them back up.last thing I want though is more crap to carry in the tree. Not calling your invention crap mind you. I am always interested to see new stuff. Maybe your invention works for you and maybe someone can improve on it. Seeing it in action would be key. Make one and show us. I'll only jokingly talk shit
Ever seen my retractable lowering line retrieval gizmo.
It's essentially a Spencer Logging Tape, with 1/8 inch nylon cord on the spool instead of tape.
Hooks passively to your bull line with a round plastic curtain rod hanger, the tape body stays hooked to your saddle.
When the log/branch is cut n lowered at its COG, it drags out whatever length of cord's need to reach the COG, allowing the climber to pull the lowering back to him quickly, instead of waitin around for the groundie to flick it back to you so far out there from the COG, see.
Works a charm n saves lots of effin about!
