Re: Guying a big log

The trees and jobs that you do would look fantastic in 360 degree footage.

Re: Guying a big log

I've done that once or twice myself, but always with a niggling suspicion that there are some very high shock loads involved (much too complicated to even attempt to calculate) and everything could very quickly go big time bad


But it's very satisfying when the plan works as intended
