Hello, my name is cjfrank and I'm just learning how to use this site. Please bear with me as I'm new at this. I am located in Milaca, MN. and own and operate a logging and lumber operation. I pretty much take material right from the stump to a prefinished product. I like the forum because I see that other people have the same equipment that I have. I call my stuff rusty but trusty. Thank you for your patience and expertice at the techniolgy.

Welcome cjfrank, I do believe you'll find the forum very useful, I also believe you may have just started a running bet on who here has reincarnated the most equipment.  I'm pretty well new here too and I think I'm in the running ;D.

I do find those projects that requirer a little baling wire in order to get up and running but sometimes I don't no when to stop

Welcome cjfrank.  A saying we have where I work is "chrome don't get you home". It just costs more.  We use plenty of old equipment, including old helicopters, in a lot of instances, you just can't buy new equipment that is built as well as some of the older stuff.  Nothing wrong with a little iron oxide!  Got to have a reason to buy some Rust Reaper.
