If you think you are “winning” an argument by posting links (some from questionable sources) ad nauseam, trust me you are not.

This argument rekindled because you twisted my statement about the teacher not taking crap from her students into the fact that she was being manipulated by the government because she converted to online classes.

****ing drop it already.
I could care less if I win an argument, but I will do what I can to get the other side out. So my sources are questionable?
Did you read either? Did you follow the links? What now you don't trust the authorities.
Who do you get your news thru. Have you read the cdc's reports about "breakthrough cases"? I tried to post links that are neutral and provide sources and had info from your local health dept.

"The Minnesota Department of Health is among the health departments issuing advisories about the breakthrough cases.

In the March 2 release, state officials told health workers that they are “investigating COVID-19 infections (symptomatic and asymptomatic) among people who are appropriately vaccinated with COVID-19 vaccine, also called vaccine breakthrough cases.”

The probe will help both Minnesota health officials and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention “understand to what extent sub-optimal primary immune responses among specific groups, waning immunity, vaccine compromise, and viral mutations or variants may impact susceptibility to COVID-19 infection after vaccination,” the alert stated.

“Transmission of SARS-CoV-2 from vaccine breakthrough cases is unknown and therefore isolation (separation from others) is recommended until 10 days have passed since symptom onset (or test date for asymptomatic cases), symptoms are improving, and patient has been afebrile for at least 24 hours, without fever-reducing medication.”"

Nobody gives a **** Brett. We are living our lives. I suggest you do the same.
I think you're wrong.
Regardless, bring it up and I'll respond, no different than someone talking about a saw or wood.
Don't like it, don't bring it up or anything to do with it.

Has anyone heard about the forest fires in South Dakota? Beetle killed pine is burning up around Mount Rushmore. And this week’s extreme winds aren’t helping.

Not sure if preemptive logging/clearing of the beetle killed stuff could have prevented but I know both in MN and out west it sure could have.

I will not be bullied into silence because someone around me can’t control themselves when certain topics are brought up.
Bullied lol. Sounds like a reportable offense.
You took the vac, not me lol.

This seems more uncontrolled and like bullying to me :oops:.

I guess when I suggest you don't bring it up, it's different.

I live in the area. Not much left of the beetle killed trees. Most locals milled that up quickly.

I personally would have teed into a rear remote for the third function.
I have not plumbed in yet but I am thinking you have a good idea there. On another site someone mentioned being able to lift and clamp onto the log at the same time rather than the lift or clamp with a diverter valve. Kubota uses a regen valve so I can't tie into the curl.
Feels like I just hit the jackpot lol. Called up my local HD and they had a Makita saw for sale! Rushed over there and bought it. Not a great deal though I guess, $290. Also Makita totally changed their saw design because I didn't recognize it lol. They also reduced the cc to 61 vice 64. Anyways, pic of the saw and the woods near my house. Hopefully that will be my new scrounging area
HD stuff is often 2nd class stuff so they can sell at lower prices. We had a Jen Aire stove and when I called them for a repair part the operator was confused by the model # and then said " oh you have a HD Model not a regular Jen Aire. But I have no idea about the saw.

Figured the worst it may be a bit of a pain not having it right in the joy stick, but at least your not sacrificing and loader functions.

Anyone with experience with this stuff? My tractor repair guy got some literature from one of his parts suppliers that are handling it. I never saw it mentioned on any of the forums I'm on.

You better ask @Czed , he's the resident chini chain expert lol.
I've seen it, but have no idea whether it's any good. Depending on who makes it, they are producing some good cutting chains.

I would guess a squirrel, rat or Porky before a Fox for damage like that. Looks like "rodent" teeth damage!
If you look on the top of the black plastic in the shaded area you can see definite canine pokes. That’s why I’m thinking either fox or small dog.

Not a huge deal as this truck is a depreciable asset but kind of weird as I’ve never seen anything chew on a car besides rodents inside the engine compartment and I’ve heard of kids eating headrests. My sister in law did that once lol.

Pricing list?

I’ve had pretty good luck with Chinese stuff. Sure the stuff stretches a little bit and dulls a bit quicker but usually they are priced a lot lower.

Thought maybe you guy's that scrounge wood, might share some of your scrounging methods with the seemingly growing crowd of newbie wood burners. From what I have been reading, they would be quite appreciative to hear how you score, and where you score. There is a lot of useful and interesting information scattered throughout the firewood forum. I thought it might be nice to share some of your experiences in one thread, for those who are just starting out and maybe those who are struggling a bit. Thanks to anyone who cares to share.
State Parks issue deadwood harvesting permits last time I was doing it.

I don’t know, maybe @huskihl would know what type of piston it was.

What I do know is that as it was built when it came into my possession, it would absolutely run away from either of my ported 346’s in 16-20” softwood. And when you think that ported 346’s should be pushing 4 1/2 to 5 hp...a tired 371 should have an advantage in long bar situations but shouldn’t run away in softwood.

Either way I’m sure it will cut much better now and should provide years of good service.
It was a Meteor 371/2 single ring piston

Depends on the state and what area your in. Cant get a permit around me, but up at my buddies cabin right above lockhaven, he get a permit every year. Sad part is I've watched our local parks, logged and they let all the dead fall, or standing dead lay or stand where it is, along with a lot of the tops. Lots of good burn wood just going to waste if you ask me.
