    What are your biggest pet peeves?

    When they ask you to take sides...

    When gingers attack

    It’s a tradition!

    When gingers attack

    Easy decision at our age, I’m often up in the early hours of the morning, then, once I’ve had a piss, I get back into bed.

    Quite right, or wait for the verdict before getting all ’woke’ on him.

    Idea For A New Gadget

    On light stuff it’ll be harder work cranking rather than just pulling it up as normal. The size crank needed to pull up a 660 would be prohibitive (I would have thought!) If I’m pulling up a big saw and need a rest I’ll place the rope over the top of the stump (assuming I’m ringing down)

    What are your biggest pet peeves?

    Clients who (when pricing a job) don’t know what they want, point to a tree and say “what do you think about that?” I think it’s a fricking tree! I can top it, reduce it, fell it, put a dress on it and call it Susan for all I care, but throw me a bone here, what do you want?

    Mind you his avatar was a bit of a clue.

    I read that book, illuminating and disturbing.

    I can’t really make sense of the photo tbh. But if the flywheel (especially if it’s a replacement one) has really fallen apart then I can’t see an argument. Bear in mind my opinion is worthless! Does look a mess!

    You’ll have to tell us what actually happened. Blade came off, bearings disintegrated....

    Death of the silky..?

    I’ve seen lots of good climbers do just that on video. Never had a silky myself mind.

    Climbing without aerial rescue?

    This is me last week, mission accomplished!

    Been offered a 2012 560xp...

    Verging on the high side for a six year old mid range saw.
  15. I know Steve did a thread like this but I cannot find it. Pre digital ones, rarely taken, hidden in a draw. Here’s me around 97/8 Ford P100 plus homemade trailer taking away the hedge tops, no saw trousers, helmet, chipper or a care in the world by the look of me, pleased as punch!
