  1. I have an older neighbor that has several stacks of wood air dried for 20+ years

    looking for a fair price per board foot.

    its rough cut 1'' boards

    consisting of oak ,pine and cedar 100'' boards

    haven't checked if its flat sawn or quarter sawn 

    any idea what a fair price ,would be helpful

    Only problem I have with them is they're not weather tight. Molded ends are.

    they make a rubber boot to cover the connection

    plug the 2 halves together and you can submerge the connection in water with no problem

    we used them working for BECHTELL POWER Corp. building power plants

    new crate of power cords com in the apprentice electricians would cut the ends off

    the journeyman would install new HUBBLE twist lock  ends with boots.

  6. on my 20v Dewalt chargers have a battery temp sensor that lets you know if the battery is too hot or too cold to charge

    no problems so far

    more concerned about this lap top i am using now

    dang thing has a hand warmer on the left side[cooling fan exhaust] 

    gets really hot and I don't leave it plugged in wen not in use

  7. as long as you have 80% you will be fine

    what jeeper said does happen to older tank installs if the tank is totally empty 

    new install's are required to be anchored

    did the installers get a permit or was it done ''under cover''[no permit]

    before it was backfield it should have been looked at

    That is a nice looking restoration you guys did with it. It also looks like it could go right back to work too! I remember the old Milwaukee RR using these to bust through the drifts the rolling hill cuts the tracks ran through around our farm. Gary😉

    the only issue is the main timbers are a little rough and should have been replaced

    to be used

    we had to chain it in place so the foot ball team would not roll it down hill and in to the woods :rolleyes:

  9. Its snowmobile season here in the Keweenaw, come up and enjoy the snow.

    just remember in a trail crash the tree always win

    so far before the new year there has been 3 fatal crashes in the western UP

    again come up the trails are great, snow pack on the lower level of the lift bridge for snowmobile traffic
