$75 @ the pawn shop
stopped at menards to get a few sticks of lumber.. when I got home these are what I found in the bottom of the small stack???? what could a guy do with something like this?
long story short, it will be a new 6'x8' fishing shack . tried to load a 2 minute video but it's to big I guess??
Upload it to YouTube, then paste the link here.
a little more progress on the fish house frame...
I bought 6 horseshoes and made adjustable height cooking trivets. Should help out immensely for regulating heat while cooking on the woodstove top. I got the idea from the YouTube cook "Cowboy Kent Rollins". Kent has an old west style chuckwagon and does a ton of cooking with cast iron and hardwood coals. Look him up if interested.

How would you like that tire bill? Holy cow! Nice looking logs. why did you sell the TW6?
Auction sale today and I bought a bunch of stuff. Picked up 2 conveyors that I really don't need but the price was reasonable. Too bad they are 220 volt but my gennie will still run them if I decide to keep them. Will put them up for sale 1st anyway.
Picked up a spare saw too. Poor thing was rode hard and put away wet. New bar, chain and a cleanup should help it.
Bid this up to $4500 but decided it was just too beat up to bother with. Kicked my own azz all the way home though. Just me and a black hat (Amish) bidding and he was about to give up. The thing was cut up and welded, cobbled together all over the place. Everything on it needed work. It would have been decent enough if I had time to play but I just have too many other things on the go. The last processor I bought 3 years ago is still sitting on my fence line waiting for me to work on it.
Got my 346NE back this week. I sent it away to camp to have it ported. I haven't had a chance to cut with it yet, but it sure sounds good reven up.
Had the TW-6 for 2 1/2 years and had less than 90 hours on it. Just a lot of money, sitting most of the time. But the real reason is the supply of large tree service wood did not pan out, and I have continued to buy 20 cord loads of Oak.
Eleven axles. Seven axles @ 4 tires each, plus 4 @ 2 each...36 tires? This one has three drive axles. The driver said that they replaced three of the six trucks this spring with new ones.
I pay a flat fee per load. I would be interested to know how much of that goes directly to diesel fuel. They are driving about a hundred miles each way. That's a lot of road time.
A friend of mine is a business owner, and works throughout the mid west, and west as far as Texas. He has said it is easier to rent equipment than own it. It also reflects the true cost of doing business. You need something on the job for a month, it's a flat fee. You own it, you need a shop to maintain it, a way to transport it to a job, it breaks down you have to fix it, parts may be unavailable for a period of time, etc. Yes you can write it off, but when you sell it, you pay income tax on it also. Write off the rental, done. They still own a lot of specialized equipment. So I think he is talking support equipment like cranes, tele handlers, loaders and such. Each job is different so he can rent for that specific job and not have to make do, for example, with a rubber tired skid steer when he could better use a tracked one. With many jobs going, it is often hard to get equipment when and where you need it without impacting another job or crew. When the economy and work slows down equipment sits. When moving it from job to job, different people are using it, maintenance varies, etc. Do the minimum to keep it running and get it out to another job because someone has been waiting on it. For a small guy it may well be different, but what he says makes some sense.
Nice work. Looks perfect to me.
Tools need maintenance at times. Problem is I have so many that I miss some from time to time.
I haven't finished my firewood lean-to yet. I'm still contemplating on where to build it.
Keep up the good work and keep me inspired with posting pics of your projects....lol
Buddy gave me a red dot scope he won at a banquet, so I bought an AR-15 to put under it.
bought 2- 1 gallon non- safety gas cans at an auction this morning. 1 was already marked for chainsaw only. $4 total. buy 'em when you see 'em.
Bought this the other day, the trailer 16' 21k gross. Red oak from free craigslist add. Cut up at the curb, just had to load it
bought this a while back off of C/L and had member @nomad_archer pick it up for me as it was in his backyard. we finally hooked up today. been collecting Smokey stuff for a few years.
Eight tooth rim sprocket for MS441.
