    Went Tankless

    I decided to replace the LP water heater at the Cabin with an electric on demand tankless heater. So the tank has to go. After pumping it out the old heater made it to the back porch. This is a 240 volt unit requiring #6 wiring and a 60 amp breaker. I made room for the additional breaker by...

    Mini-Log yard

    Even though my primary service is portable sawmilling and I have not been in the "selling" business, I do occasionally get calls for Cedar lumber. So now I am setting up a Mini-Log yard. I have a few dozen more Cedar logs and some Walnut logs that I will add to the "yard".

    A Busy Saturday

    We started off by adding a Pat's Cat2 Quick hitch to John Deere, (Kubota already has one) and then it was off to the woods. I am/was needing some White Oak for bridge decking so this tree in the center will be the donor. Trimming, marking, and bucking. The butt log was bucked 18' and the rest...

    Yesterday during our annual July 4th trail ride and scavenger hunt a Grandson spotted this Timber Rattler. Someone generally sees one every year and the standing instructions is to take pictures but do not get off of your ride and do not mess with it. Video:

    M4900 Fuel Petcock Position ??

    My M4900 Operator's Manual shows two fuel petcock positions: Off - horizontal, and On - vertical. The fuel petcock on my 2005 model M4900 has 3 positions: horizontal, vertical, and on around to CCW horizontal. It was CCW horizontal when I got it which is where it still is, but I wonder about...

    Sawmilling

    In another topic somewhere (probably Health & Safety) I mentioned that I do portable sawmilling and promised a few pictures. Kinda hard to describe each picture in the thumbnails, but anyway... Me with a nice Cypress cant on the sawmill. A whack of lumber stickered and drying, Tree length...

    Coffee Anyone??

    I do, generally 2 cups per day unless I am sawing and I then miss my afternoon cup. The wife doesn't drink coffee so it's a simple matter for me to use canned loose ground. I recently found this single cup Hamilton Beach maker that I really like. (I'm sorry but I still can't find an option...

    Health and Safety

    Safety is always of the utmost importance especially when working with and around equipment so maybe we need a place to not only share Safety Issues but also General Heath items that we all encounter. I had Total Knee Replacement surgery on November 18 and six weeks later was discharged with no...

    Loosing Memory

    At times I guess that we all wonder if we are loosing it?? :eek: I reckon that the best part about Brain Farts or maybe more properly called Cranial Flatulence is that at least they don't smell bad. For now I don't have Alzheimer's. I have Halfheimer's because I can remember about half of...

    Not Home for Christmas

    Everyone wants to be Home for Christmas and there is even a Christmas Song about it, but the fact is that everyone is not able to be home with their families for Christmas. There are family members and even OT members that are not where they would really like to be today. We have a Grandson...

    Hood Latch Woes

    I went out this afternoon to take a look at my fuel injector wetness "problem" and the hood unlatching rod was disconnected from the latching mechanism. Da wigglin' pin had come outta da wobblin' hole! With the hood latched and no way to unlatch it, I was in a sorta situation. I didn't want...
