Pook, maybe your title should be "Thread Killer" ;-)
Approximately what speed is this at?
That has to be the biggest freaking chop saw I've ever seen! How big a log can that sucker cut?
p.s. that sawdust pile would be great for compost mixed w/ equal amount of horse s**t.
My father had a buzz saw about that big around. It didn't have any guarding on it. I remember sharpening it with a bastard file and setting the teeth with a pair of hammers. We powered it with a long belt from a John Deere LA two banger. The saw was stationary and we moved the wood by hand.
Driving the old truck.
Nice old truck. If that were mine, I'd be adding "waxing the old truck" to the list.
Thanks. If you saw it up close, you would see that wax is the last thing it needs now.
I had an old boss that would comment that my work "Looks good from far but far from good"!
Something like that. I like to call it a twenty footer. It is a work in progress. As time and funds allow it will be restored to look like it is about 2 or 3 years old. That way I can still use it and not be afraid to scratch the $5000 paint job, but still have it nice enough to be proud of it.
Dude, I'm totally leaning the bike more then you...hahahaha, jokes
yah, but you're still on a Yamaha.
Or, eating fresh Mexican at Bueno Y Sano (that's the T shirt I have on).
Oh, wow, look...you Vermonters! One is opening in Burlington.....
Had it tonight, actually....spinach and garlic quesadilla --umm good.
Very nice little sloop, Craig...what's her name? Rick
Uhhh.....wifey is gonna make me name it after her nickname.....
mott (short for martha or marty).
Here is someone actually making one go......it's a little thing, but I'm only day sailing in a bay and inlet!
Right now I am driveway sailing it - actually raised the mainsail today....got the registration and numbers on it - prepping for bottom! paint, etc.
You got a sailboat, so you're gonna paint your body? Not sure I follow that, but I think it's a damned fine vessel, and looks like a hell of a lot of fun. Rick
ETA: When I was ~6, my dad bought a used homebuilt 25' cabin cruiser with a flathead ford V-8 in it. His nickname for me was " Major", his nickname for my sister was "Mac", and his nickname for my mom was "Neen" (Veneta). Our boat was thus christened the "Major MacNeen". We had some great times on that boat. I'd wish you the traditional "fair winds and following seas", but following seas really aren't all that much fun. Let's just say fair winds. Rick
at york beach, with my family, riding the waves in a surf kayak.
or working wood:
The one in the pic is a kawi, my current ride...does that make it better or worse then Yamaha? lol
We used to call them "cow" for short. I failed my first test on a friend's 500 kawi. He had just rebuilt the engine and the chrome rings were so tight it wouldn't idle. The only way I could get around the cones was to spin donuts.
Oh worse, waaaaaay worse. I thought I smelled Kawasaki.
Hey do you know George and his girlfriend Michelle from Turn 2 racing?
I don't know them personally, my bf knows George I believe.
