Good morning Hal
Was wondering the same thing myself
Good morning Kevin

Good morning George hope you have a great Friday,stay safe out there today buddy
Good morning Del hope your week is going well
Thanks Todd,Looks like we get a little break from the heat today
Good Evening Todd. Doing some cleanup at daughter's house as they just put carpeting in 2 bedrooms. Hope to be bike riding in a couple hours. Have you recuperated from the time zones change?
Do you ring test the wheel before installation?
thanks SWH - sunny out, slight wind... drying things... quite dif from yesterday! hope u get to go get that wood...
thanks cheeves - hope your day goes well today. the shoe goo repair dint really matter when the water is flowing into boot and 2" over the top! lol
but there was work needing to be done...
thanks for your thoughts, etc. jk - plenty here will benefit from such...
feel kinda sad for the 2 who died. think the guy who drowned in van had shown pretty poor headwork! however, the 19-year old who went out to pasture to tend to horse and got electrocuted and drowned... that's a sad tale of woe, for sure. imo, the kid would have been a swell poster boy for 'being a Texas rancher/cowboy'. by all appearances, seemed to have the right stuff! really sad for him and family.
thanks ray, good vid. something to be learned there...
thanks Farmer Steve. imo, I have been lucky with several things during my tenure down here in the Lone Star State:
- figured out early on how to get out of morning rush hour traffic and drive at five as to going to work
- how to be able buy a home
- live in a neighborhood that rains oak all the time. great for a pioneering pyro like me! lol
- and last, but not least... ended up with #2 above being a real estate setting that has never flooded here in the big city. for that I am truly grateful. someone looking out for me from above !
Thanks for the vid
I did not. The small diameter of the wheel would require some extra gentle taps though or you're bound to put some cracks in yourself.
I did look to see if it was true however.
It came in a pouch. I thought a box would have been better with lots of padding.
I put a 1/8 wheel on , first w/o the plastic safety guard, then with the safety guard & it spun fine.
I guess I'm either going to buy another OEM Oregon wheel or go with the more expensive CBN wheel which evidently outlasts the OEM
by thousands of uses.
a call for help! thought some of you here might rush on down and lend me a hand... I was out of beer! by end of Wed, and din't want to get out in all the rains and water Thursday...
SOS - had hoped someone would
now a gentler day down here, today. nice. calm. sunny. sure do feel for those disrupted by all the recent weather events of late here.
85f out, it's our high for today, too. but a bit humid. cooler weather for next few days.
Wind: 6 MPH
scattered showers predicted, I heard a momentary patterning on the roof just a few mins ago.
hard to recover from stuff like this. many Harvey affected people still not back to normal and now this...
yesterday, one lady interviewed from a canoe... told about previous flooding in her neighborhood. the tv interviewer asked her what was she going to do about these continual and really bad floods. her answer was simple:
" I am going to move! " as she paddled off with a big smile...
hi SA - seems u escaped the danger of that wheel exploding. $40 is nothing compared to what could have....
did u have safety shield or goggles on? I know I am guilty of just flipping the ON switch, kissing the part... and getting back to the project at hand. and now safety googles. my dad showed my brother and I how to use a bench grinder many moons ago. how to move part across face of wheel, for example to have even wear. and not to grind on the side of the wheel. can promote an explosion...
I am guilty of that, too! but... your and ray's post will entice me to be a bit more diligent ie, shop safety when turning on my grinders and wire wheels...
glad u were ok, man!
ps: am going to ck my wheels...
Afternoon ,75ish with sun
No glasses but the 511AX has a good deal of plastic around the spinning wheel. Probably should wear glasses regardless.
I'm going to try
