Lotta fab lately, gonna run out of welding gas soon and be in a real bind.  My leased tank needs to go back to massachusetts and ill be without for a while.  






Mike call your MA guy. When I moved, as luck had it My tanks were leased from a small shop in MD that was bought out by Matheson but still call just Lee's gas. Matheson turned out to be close to Nationwide and they had a branch here in ME. I was able to transfer the lease with no problems. You might get lucky. Who's name is stamped into the bottle?

  Now I remember what it was like with shortwood pulp, but if this is the way I get wood to fill the shed, I'll get through it. Couple more loads like this and I'll have next years shop heat in the woodshed. 
  Tree guy clearing a lot for a house bucked it up and left it for me to load and haul home.

My 8 wheeler tore up pretty good on its last run.  I put 4 new springs and new U bolts to get by for now and turned it to a 4 wheeler.  Needs 4 equalizers im not willing to invest but also not ready to put in the full axles i want.  Just flipped it over and hitched up for tomorrow.

I love the bootyfab equipment over in scandinavia but i just cant figure what 30 dudes actually do with a few debarked fenceposts.  How can there be money in this?  The economics always look like sending 5 workers and 20 spectators to go fetch a dozen eggs.  What am i missing?


Anyways, dragged the new wood truck home today.

I like watching those guys work Puffer. Interesting equipment.

Mike, I see you left enough rubber under the trailer. Nice truck.

Mike it's been a while since I've seen a Ford of that body style!  Must not use too much road salt down that way!

Only on the interstate and maybe a couple major arteries.  Rural roads dont even get plowed let alone salted here. Thats why the south really shuts down when it snows.  The roads are crazy narrow, twisty, sharp ditches right on the edge and not an inch of tar to spare.  Very very few guard rails too.

Its not a "southerners cant drive in the snow" thing.  Its a roads with zero margin for error thing.

I still see early 70s trucks in service.  This ones in pretty fair shape, no rot to speak of.
