    Good morning all. A really nice day here with a high in the upper 30's. Will go out into the hinterlands today with the 576 & 357 extra pee's & start cutting next years 20-25 odd cord.
    If I get there early enough I may get "recruited" again:chop:

    You run 33:1 in stock saws?

    Do you keep a steady supply of plugs around?

    My plan is to reduce the collection to three saws by the time I'm 60, so 4 more years.

    3 to 4 ounces of oil per gallon with stabilizer added. Then never use if it gets 8 weeks old. No plug issues.

    My arborist pal uses 50:1 non syn in all his saws

    I use about 40:1 in stock saws, 32:1 in ported. Brad gave the exact gas to oil portion:laugh:, .64

    And of course a clean air filter

    Morning all, hope you coffee is hot and strong.
    -7c and overcast.
    Coffee with the retired boys today.
    Did some cutting and grinding yesterday.
    That there gets you dirty.
    Have a good one.

    Good morning all, 34° at chores time, misty and rain at the moment. Wifey is puzzling and here I sit coffee at hand. Off to the Drs. in a few minutes the TSC and pick up our deer meat. That means wrapping and then jerky time. See you all later. Play safe out there.

    One inch plate steel, am starting my splitter build, bought a cylinder and beam, beam was set up at one end for the cylinder,
    I wasnt happy with the set up, so cut it off , it was torch cut and poorly welded and no thought put into it.
    I only have 5in zip discs and 5 inch grinder, slow but works, gives you time to think about the next move,,,
    The beam is 8x8, 12ft long now, going to put a 1 x 10in plate on top as I have it, shouldn't bend that.
