    Trying to remember that video Jay posted some time back of that Japanese fella doing it with rope and sticks. Great stuff.
    Interesting how a limited gene pool and a limited labor force seem to be so closely related.

    Round rolling washers, of varying OD at critical support links, combined with rubber washers that are square, make my Palm stepper's somewhat unique.

    I've kinda shocked myself, they are very fluid n smooth, rolling over deformities n bumps goin up, and cinching like a mofo when stepping down.

    Too good to be true really.

    Cable binding mechanism on the main shank, a fixed Palm ratchet, just below the spur stays.

    In tree adjustable mate!

    I predict three sets of palm stepper's will be needed to prune most palm species.

    From reclinatas to fat boy dates.

    Great means of recycling old tires too.

    What I need's a one inch square punch!

    Why does a tree guy have a dead tree in his yard? Family heirloom, sentimental value?
