      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Woodworking help needed

Recommended Posts

A little scared, too. I didn't think it right to ask one to take a picture first when they thought I was going to have to go to the hospital. Unfortunately, a self-portrait wasn't possible.

 

You're welcome to use mine. :wave:

Your pic didn't seem to indicate the presence of much gristle.

Besides, it'd be like chewing jerkey anyway. And I love jerkey!

Yeah, blood and chainsaws. :noway:

 

I went to the emergency room a couple times over that one. I've taken one employee and a former boss to the hospital because of chainsaw cuts.

 

If you're going to use a chainsaw a lot in the woods I recommend kevlar chaps. You can get kevlar gloves too.

Dude they're chaps. They aren't a fashion statement. You wear them to protect the most likely part of your body to get tagged by a running or idling chainsaw chain.

Actually I bought a pair of Husqvarna kevlar pants, but I only wore them a couple times since they're way to hot to wear and get any work done without sweating quarts of water. The kevlar is only on the front side though.

Nice, Sobo. Just don't sneak up behind him with a chainsaw. :lmao:

 

 

Feck, I was given a pair of those Husky chaps as a get-well gift after my accident. Good idea. :tup:
