    Fu*%face Von Clownstick

    I can answer that. This is from years of astute observation of "hard core" conservative behavior, which is ultimately the real driving force behind the conservative plight. But, be cautioned about who you apply this to, because there are many men and women both who publicly profess one political...

    Fu*%face Von Clownstick

    I don't think they are gullible to what he is, as much as they're gullible enough to believe that he is our savior and is capable of cleansing our fine country of what the conservatives view as undesirable. Fucking idiots. There's only one way to cleanse a country and it's ugly and the...

    That's not his. He stole that shit from two cats in the woods behind the house. Pissed on the dog that was hangin with them. He got it for me. Knew I liked the stuff.

    Got A Saw That Won't Prime with Bulb, And You've Tried Everything... Try PB Blaster

    I have a 193T that, like other people, gave me fits when it was new. The main problem was with the idle, and stalling with throttle. I wrote in another post about how a timing advance and muffler mod saved that saw. However, I had a problem since day 1 that has persisted and never been solved...

    Stihl MS241 (I’m in love)

    I was at my dealer today and they had a 241cm on rack and one in the back. I asked them about Stihl discontinuing sales in the US, and they were completely unaware of it. Funny thing is that their "Stihl" website no longer shows the 241cm.

    I have full conversations with the cat when I drink. I swear he told me kill someone, but I was too drunk to remember who.

    I want a rope with almost zero stretch.

    There was a Sterling rep, @Meagan Cooper, that came on the board a week or so ago. I think it was on the Sherrill acquisition thread. Maybe she can give you some inside info.

    I want a rope with almost zero stretch.

    If its only the ascent thats bothering you, heres another option without changing line. Shoot throwline like normal. Attach quicklink to eye of line, leave throwball on throwline and "clip" throwline into link. Pull up line, which is really being done by throwball acting on link. When line is...

    I want a rope with almost zero stretch.

    Replace half of your 7/16 system with 1/2" HTP. Still climb on the 7/16 side. Connect the halves using sewn eye and a 3/8 quick link. Here's the math. 7/16 is 2.5% @ 300 lb. 1/2 is .9% @ 300 lb. Basically average the two halves. Right now your seeing 2.5% @ 300lb The new way you would see 1.7% @...

    Scored a Mint 661cm

    Sweet! Where'd you get them? Man, I've had a tough time on eBay with the 661. Too many sketchy items. AM parts all over them, who knows what on the internals. People are putting new exterior parts on to make it look good, then you see that the rest of the saw isn't in the same condition. I'm...

    Scored a Mint 661cm

    Drove 200 miles down Alabama to make the deal, but it was worth it. It was in mint condition. Guy bought it for disaster relief but kept grabbing a smaller saw so this one saw very little wood. So this guy, really nice fellow, tried to give me an older Stihl catalog. I politely declined. But he...
