There was an incident yesterday, I wasn't there, this was the damage shown at today's end of day training event / get together we had.
I may tell the story in a different thread later right now we're all just super thankful the two very highly skilled guys are safe and only extremely...
Today the wife is not happy...
Working out of a pull out and thus not going to the shop for the next few weeks so I'm having to take batteries home to charge every night. The old lady is not pleased her kitchen has became a charging station lol.
I always attach my lanyard to the top handle like you have (exactly like you have, starting feeding it through from the pull cord side). I like how it hangs closer to me better than when attached at the rear and it's not in my way at all.
Cheaper option (assuming it's not life support, the petzl eject is full life support but sounds like you don't need this to be life rated from your description)
Super cool cutting jig / method but I'm having a hard time envisioning how they fit together. Any videos of logs going together using that style joint. Does that specific style have a name I could just YouTube?
I file my chains on my personal saws as well as on my personal t540i that I use at work but company policy is to just swap chains. We're paid well, above industry standard, and a new chain is cheaper than the labor + down time at the work site to sharpen one, especially a longer one.
I actually just read the other day on IG that KB said (in a comment on someone else's post doing the exact same) that the RW has tested to be plenty strong enough end-to-end for life support and the only real issue with doing so is you'd need to use a double locking SLIC pin (which Travor...
While I don't disagree with your bolded text I would argue that Travor was in more danger staying in the tree with those groundie than he put himself in bailing in the manor he did.
Travor is a top notch tree worker, he's also one of the few who regular posts videos showing mistakes.
You can build a DIY wrench for $0, use an old piece of hitch cord for the tether ($0) to attach it to a pinto ($50) and have a much better option than the ATC.
If you're only an occasional climber that's all the more reason to get proper tools, I do this every day and I wouldn't want to...
