FedEx is awful. They can't be bothered to put packages on the porch and just leave them on the ground by the mailbox. I'm not home for 2 or 3 days every week so they sit out there getting wet .
Together we got this !

I've also had problems with FedEx.  They don't read the personal preferences where to leave the packages and I've had them left at the front door, which we don't use (it's obvious - nothing but grass going to it and no path beat down, anybody with half a brain can see we don't use that door).  Meanwhile, UPS has been the steadfast old mule that just does their job.  UPS for the win!  If FedEx keeps messing around they're gonna keep losing to UPS and the regular old mail, which is also good around here.

My LogRite arrived today!

Thanks for posting those excellent photos. Those are what convinced me to buy a LogRite and retire my homemade cant hook. Your photos let me see the tool as if I had it in hand and had my reading glasses on. :)

The problem may be that Logrites seem to be a family and are more content in the company of other family members.  It would be very difficult to own only one Logrite.   ;D

   At the big Lewsisburg WV fairgrounds flea market yesterday I had 2 different sawyers say they needed to buy new cant hook handles from the local handles dealers there. I told them both to save the time and money and call Logrite and talk to Tammy. We wrote down the company and Tammy's name down so they'd remember. Hopefully they heed the advice.

   I am not far from having to replace the grips on my Logrite too. It is very sturdy but with enough abuse you can tear one up. You can even bend one if you cut a big enough tree on top of it. :D (Still works fine though.)

  I got my new grip installed using MM’s Technique. I covered the front hole and one of the pinholes with packing tape. Got the rubber grip started on the end and held it with my hand.   Then I choked up behind it and I had my buddy Johnny pulse air into the remaining pinhole.  I found that pulsing a little bit at a time, and stopping so my hand could rest worked the best. I got behind the grip with my leg so it wouldn’t shoot off. That happened to me once when I started. But we worked it on in about a half inch to an inch at a time by pulsing the air.  Before I did this I had the cut that I did with the circular saw weld it up in the chainsaw Nick weld it up.



Anything someone can design, I can sure figure out how to fix!
If I say it\\\\\\\'s going to take so long, multiply that by at least 3!

This is how we do it at logrite.

Tool inserted into cup, a squirt of isopropyl alcohol in the grip and one on the handle then line up the warm grip.

 Using the foot pedal to turn on the air, the grip fills and is pulled down in one quick motion.

 And that's how it's done.
