    Most of the time, if I’ve sat very long hunting, I wish I was working. I love it.

    Meticulous Chainsaw Maintenance

    I couldn’t afford to blow out the air filter and surroundings and sharpen the chain every time I fuel up. That would add up considerably over a busy day.

    Meticulous Chainsaw Maintenance

    Is say a “pro logger” would put far more hours on a saw than an arborist. That alone would mean a vast difference in longevity. I blow out the air filter on my 200T once a week (primary). I’ll blow out the back up about once a month if/when it’s used. Bigger saws once a month or as needed.

    Ah. Fiberglass handle. I figured that’s what it was. I have one just like it in the truck. The one I have of my grandfather’s is the old version of that, with curved claws. My other grandfather had one that was solid fiberglass, made before they started putting the rubber grip on.

    Post a pic of that plastic handled Plumb, please. I have my Grandfather’s old Plumb hammer. I use it a little on most every project I tackle just because it was his. It helped build my house, my daughter’s house and on some other projects.

    As to the hammer being easier on wrist/elbow, I can’t explain it. Just is. I’ve read that wood transfers less shock/vibration than metal or fiberglass. Maybe that’s it. Framing uses different muscles. Wall framing means you’re bending over/straightening up all day, which leads to back pain for...

    But bragging rights, B! “I sauntered back to the truck to get my saw”....vs...”I cut a tree down with THIS!” 😝

    I cut a tree or two that was a bit bigger than the Swiss Army Knife saw was made for when I was a bored and more energetic youth...

    Back when I was roofing, I went through one of these a year. The sweat just ate the leather up. I never throw the loop away. Five minutes and four pop rivets and you have a durable hanger anywhere you want within reason. I put one on my little tractor 25 years ago.

    Christmas is coming....Santa might bring you one! After the collarbone mishap, I’ll be putting a hammer loop on my Kubota to keep an axe handy.

    I like Estwing hammers. My main hammer is an Estwing 20 oz straight claw framing hammer. It’s my go-to for most building. But when it comes to actual framing...as in slinging the hammer all day framing, I’ll take a wooden-handle California framer any day. Lots easier on the wrist and elbow.

    How'd it go today?

    Got a happy in the mail today...thanks Austin! Amazing how much can be written about a tool that is now (to many), obsolete.

    I’m certain Stig wouldn’t want to mess up his braids! A couple of crushed pine cones inside it might help with the itch.
