When I asked him about using it he said "I don't know where the controls are, and you need the exercise. Use the wedges and sledge."
I thought i recalled that in Some other string. And i agree with his thought on exercise.
It's odd this came up, i called Dennis today to discuss... Haying.... In short... He informed me, HE had the widow maker 3 weeks ago, they brought him back twice! and ended up having a stent, and he's still going strong! He also told me his cardio doctor... Had told him the past splitting wood (old school) IS, excellent exercise) << food for thought ?
He's a weird cat. Has a lot of cool stuff though, and most of it hasn't ever been used.
I can't figure this out... Why have that big ol shop full of nice machinery, AND never use it ? Lol. From how you've described your pops.... Yeah he seems like a cool guy! Maybe he thinks you need the whip cracked on ya....lol, but! Ya gotta play with big boy toys!
Now kind of back on topic....took the lot lizard ..... N went checked on a load of big chunk wood (green maple) a neighbor gave me. It's a good score! ... I may have to give this one up, due to trucking grain, and haying...i noticed this weeping seal, mine don't see axle deep slop, least NOT till this repair .... Besides she's tight, no roar no fillings, just bleeding abit .....
