  1. @bigtreedon Can you please post a video of that cross cutting bar length timber?
  2. A 25hp chipper has less power than three MS880 chainsaws.
  3. It was called a saw mit. A open glove that was laced loosely onto the side handle. The idea was that under kickback your hand couldnt have been shoved off the saw.
  4. 1997. Logging old growth, I really wanted to be a faller so I had to come in on my days off if I wanted a go. I remember my boss saying " next time you are in town, pick up a 36". That ment he trusted me enough to fall on my own, I practically danced around the forest that week.
  5. Most people get absolutely fixated on the type of gun used in these tragic mass shootings.This feeds the outrage from which the media profits. Considering many of these whackjobs commit these mass shootings for notoriety then why does the media give them so much coverage? The media actually feeds the problem and is a large part of the problem.
  6. There are bits of one smashed all over a mountainside on the edge of town over here. If it was in the UK the anoraks would have stolen all the peices.
  7. Does the AA investigate wether or not the crew being assessed is actually employed by the company seeking AA aproval? I have heard from various credible sources that hiring a crew of " all stars" is a common ploy on assessment day. Also for a large company such as Bartletts, does each depot have an assessment or does a single assessment cover the entire organisation?
  8. 418,000 casualties from a population of how many tens of million Daniel? Chart: World War II Casualties as a Percentage of Each Country’s Population | TopForeignStocks.com TOPFOREIGNSTOCKS.COM World War I was supposed to the War to End all Wars. However many years...
  9. Anyhoo Here are a couple of links regarding IBM. Profits Over Life — How IBM Aided the Third Reich | by Nicola Bosch | Lessons from History | Medium MEDIUM.COM Perhap’s Hitler’s Biggest Business Partner And their duplicity : The IBM / Auto-Ordnance M1 Carbine by Frank Iannamico SMALLARMSREVIEW.COM By Frank Iannamico
  10. Fcuk my life Daniel. You know that IBM made the accounting machines the Germans used to catalogue the Jews they took into the concentration camps. Also they supplied parts for them via Lisborn pretty much right up untill the end.Despite manufacturing rifles for the Amercan forces, some of those rifles would have been used to liberate the very camps their machines were in. As a whole ,America lost very few young people in the second world war. They would have lost a whole bunch less if the radar stations near Pearl Harbor hadn't mysteriously been unmanned as the Japanese neared Hawaiian shores. But then nobody would have made as much money in that case. Like most of the globe, you dont reference Americans for history lessons, nor would I reference you for competent tree work techniques. You climb like Joe Biden.
  11. Well nearly every kid in Norway gets drafted. Given a select fire rifle/pistol/smg to keep at home untill they are 40 years old, these guns dont factor in crime stats really. In the UK you have an idiot problem, heavy legislation wont stop idiots taking shots with no backstop. An oxy set wont kill a person at a mile but a Rifle won't kill half a bus load of people at once either. Anyway. If the op wants some game meat, or to try using a Rifle he could do worse to offer his help to a pest controller. Cleaning his wagon, spliting/cutting wood etc. Earn his trust in order to be given a privilage.
  12. So glad I dont have to deal with such bollocks. Firearms are tools, Rifles are no more dangerous than a Oxy cutting set.I find it so sad that firearms owner talk up the perceived danger of firearms themselves, but I guess thats a product of how hard they are to acess in the UK.
  13. Khris If your reply was a beam of light travelling across the galaxy at 25,000 kilometers per hour. Great civilisations would rise and fall, entire ecosystems evolve, flourish only to become extinct, great works of literature penned praise and forgotten. All before anyone knew what the fcuk you are on about .
  14. BC is in Canada and Red Woods are native to California.Do a bit of searching on here Khris and you will find the pictures you are seeking, I have showed them numerous times. You realise the Halfords socket set under the divan in your bedsit isn't a workshop right?
  15. Have you and rough hewn been swapping saw maintainance tips? Looking forward to seeing pictures of your workshop Khris .
