Out with the old....
« on: May 23, 2019, 04:30:10 PM »
No, not the sawmill nor I yet, but...my Sawmilling Invoice Binder.  The old Cordura Nylon binder has served me well for 16+ years but the zipper went bad and it now unzips behind the zipper.  Searching for a replacement for an old friend was daunting and frustrating.  No, they don't make three ring 5X8 binders anymore, they are now seven ring.  Hole puncher to the rescue.  Cordura is not available and I did not want vinyl, plastic, nor faux so leather it was.


 
The new one holds the same size paper but it is larger.


 
It's hard to imagine how many $$$ have been invoiced while looking at that lumber scale. :o

I saw the first picture and thought he was getting a bigger wallet.   $ :o $
Under bark there's boards and beams, somewhere in between.
Cuttin' while its green, through a steady sawdust stream.

Yup, I will agree that this is trivial, but I really dislike parting with that of which I am comfortable.  I guess that I was being picky so I had no idea that finding a replacement would be so difficult.  Anyway, I believe that I will be be satisfied with this new one.  eBay to the rescue.

My Little World is a hardware store. If you found something you like buy 2,because when you wear it out and come back for another one,it is no longer being made.  :(

Which is kinda what I ran into.  A few months ago I saw one in our store that sells buyouts from fire/flood damaged plus bankrupt stores.  I thought "well that is like mine but mine is still good so I don't need it".  :-\  When mine conked I went looking for it but alas....gone.  :-X

When I was doing cabinet and carpenter work I used one of the aluminum kinda box folders but it did not work well for my sawing business.
