I'll try to get a few pics for you guys of the strip Im in right now. Beautiful tall and slick Spruce stove pipes! 80% of them 24" to 36" with a few 4 footers here and there.
Nice haul, for not planning on it.G'day chaps, not much to get excited about but cut up and roughly split this weeks running peppermint scrounge.

Just need a few fine days for it to dry off then I'll burn it.
I've had a lot of them, that's how I learn best, hands on. But this particular one I've never even seen in person, I did however almost buy one lol.Dang Brett! You definitely know your power saws!!!
Good on ya!
I don't know what more than half of the saws I see on this forum are!
Do you collect older power saws for a hobby as well as make money with your modern models?Nice haul, for not planning on it.
What's that antique looking saw you're running .

Seeing the "cyliner" fins in the picture was the give away, but I'm pretty sure Joe even said he had one within the last yr or so.
Very unique saws for sure.
No, I prefer more modern saws, but I do have a couple sweet old manual saws lol.Do you collect older power saws for a hobby as well as make money with your modern models?
Watch it, I resemble that remark .I think Chipper buys / sells anything that flashes $ in his eyes!
no Kings, but had salmon other day. still on sale at the grocery. poached, 6 mins 400f or so out on the grill. real tasty! melt in mouth...The bigger one the other day? If I had to guess. Id say 27 or 28 I don't put them on the scale unless I think they are 35 or bigger. The one in your picture is a Beautiful King! 40lb hog or bigger no doubt!
WOW! awesome. did u post the pix? i won't skip any pages now.... knowing it mite be on one of them!!! lolWhen I had my skiff built in 2013 I hooked about a 35 pounder on her maiden voyage! Unfortunately our landing net was only big enough for silvers. About three days later while fishing a King tournament. My boat had three Kings hit her deck! All of them huge soaker hogs!!! A 50lb, a 56lb, and a 65lb fish! Winning us the tournament by a land slide! We crushed it! 171lbs between three King Salmon! No other boat even came close that tournament! I'll post a picture for ya as soon as I get a chance to skiff back home from camp for supply's on one of my days off. Unfortunately, the pics are at home on my other phone. Seems these days the big soaker kings are hitting Kingsman boat decks around here
fewer and fewer every year!
be careful MM! ~ foller dr's advice. chit happens...This recovery is going slower than I expected. It is improving, but very slowly ... I was expecting more from the laparoscopic procedure.
Still have a black and blue that looks like someone tattooed a large Violet on my naval and some swelling and pain when I sit up.
I've been cautioned to wait 3 weeks for internal stuff to heal. Don't want to have to go through it again ... that's for sure!
This is putting a damper on my summer, but I'm planning on being good for hunting season. I need to be 100% by then, as I like to hunt some rugged areas, and not all of them have cell phone service if something goes wrong.
$265 out the door for a day(8hrs on the machine), self powered with tracks and around 25hp. It did just fine for what I was doing, but more power and a larger wheel would have been nice for a few I did, but the job I rented it for I needed something that wouldn't track up the yard, which had a sprinkler system(read soft), a hill into the back yard that also slopped to the side.
I did a total of 18 stumps, about half just below the surface for mowing and the others much deeper, it used just over 8 gallons of gas in just under 8 hrs. I was pretty whooped the day I rented it as I drove about 120 miles and ground 17 of the stumps and hauled the grindings from the job to the trailer. The next morning I ground the last and biggest double stem cherry I dropped for a neighbor a couple yrs ago, it took me about an hr, but it had some root flares that ran out about a ft off the stump and were still exposed(it was flush cut before I started on it. I did a black locust that was cut about 8" off the ground that took 2 hrs, it was only 15" across.
Thought I had a video dropping the cherry, but that was at a different neighbors, dropping a nice sized black locust.
Here's what I have on the cherry, fun tree.

a fleet of wb's!! i am currently into pull carts. scrounged this beauty off curb couple days back. bit ruff, but now good as new! cleaned, oiled, serviced, derusted, modded and made some parts. a 4 tires hold air! still holding! will be caboose for my scrounge firewood safari train... saws, fuel, PPE, tools, water, etc... i liked it so much, i ordered another one. NIB! found an A-z scrounge deal online and scarged it right up! will be here today. special feature along with design mods and engineering updates: no flat tires!Got started on my chimney project. What a mess taking down the old chimney was, I wad glad when I got it all down, I knew it was rough but not as bad as it turned out to be. As I suspected whoever put it up used minimal mortar in the joints and the Terra cotta was held in by nails in the joints and no mortar in between them. Well save for one last section it's been replaced with a triple walled stainless chimney now. Still have to do the flashing around it when the last piece cones in. Company I got everything from this spring changed brands so I had to order the last section, was the hole reason I went with the dura vent brand, I had a source locally. Oh well. The last 36" section should show up this week.
And for those wheel barrow guys...View attachment 1005083
