    re-writing history with stone artifacts

    Lol there's a definite reason for that! When you are in a trade union, a large part of that is the fact that your skillset was developed and paid for by others. The journeymen of the past worked with you when you knew less than nothing, and often paid for your benefits during that time period...

    re-writing history with stone artifacts

    Jed, because I'm not smart, and am basically an alcoholic redneck that holds sparklers for a living :lol: Cory, the building and rebuilding of machining tools uses hand scraping, which is using a single edged tool and by hand shaving down high spots. They mark the high points using marking dye...

    re-writing history with stone artifacts

    It's kinda one of those things that people take for granted that they are smarter than people that came before them. They were different from us, practiced different religions, e.t.c, so there's no way that they could come up with stuff, so it must be aliens lol. I finally got to watch the...

    How'd it go today?

    There's a few tricks i use/ have heard of for maximizing a shorter bucket. First, I'm a big fan of using as little rigging as possible to accomplish the goal, so I'll use speedlines all the time. For example, a limb is overhanging a house, but if i could move the butt away from the house 10 feet...

    re-writing history with stone artifacts

    I still gotta get some time and watch the videos, but it's exactly like grinding or lapping, you are using an abrasive. They didn't have access to aluminum oxide like we often use now, but they had sand, which is quartz crystals (very hard). Many materials fracture along grain structures, and...

    carb repair for the ms 200T

    Learn something everyday. I have always rebuilt them, ever since i had my mowing business. Never thought to just buy a new carb. I'm to the point that i can rebuild the ones on my welder and backhoe in a half hour, 45 if i have to cut a new gasket. Those are around 400 bucks a pop tho, and are...

    carb repair for the ms 200T

    What's the advantage there? That's what I'm not understanding. The metal is still the same no?

    Ok, you have a badass lift then!!!! Yeah you got this, running guys is stress, that's exactly why i turned my company truck in and told them i would happily go back to the tools, but I'm done running work for them. I've since left that contractor and have been offered foreman jobs since, and i...

    Tree work thoughts

    If you can get a pickup truck to the tree, you can get a lift there. You don't need a dedicated line clearance truck designed to trim street trees to do tree work, a 50 foot tow behind at your local rental store will do wonders. As a climber, you are forced to rig more because in a lift you can...

    Tree work thoughts

    @cory do you have a lift? Have you thought about hiring another climber? Obviously you are seeing how working smart always wins over fast, and are doing very well cause you're amazing. As a guy who has been a boss over a bunch of guys before (different trade but it's basically the same), you...
