  1. Felling Trees

    Chain Saws
    Noticed a neighbor while driving off to play RB last night. Scout and I strolled down to take a look. A big, old pine tree broke off and into multiple parts. Unfortunately, the longest section came down on his attached garage roof. This must have happened during the worst of the wind a...

    Those are paw prints of the fox community that use the edge of my driveway as a trot line. Scout was supervising this futile plow effort from the warmth of the house. And, I suspect he was unsatisfied with my work.

    Good Luck. You were blowing snow at the time, any chance you accidentally left the PTO on?
  4. Too Many Stickies in JD forum of Lawn and Garden Tractors

    Site News and Feedback
    Sorry, I'm not following you. But, I am not attempting to sort, filter, or otherwise alter the order of the threads in the FAQ's. Rather, I am reporting that the John Deere Forum has too many Stickies at the top, obstructing quick access to the actual content of the JD Forum.

    Had to quote my own post, as I apparently exceeded my weekly allotment of edits. I found no such sample cans/jars of the semi-transparent sealers when I checked today. So, I took a scrap piece of the darker board that had been ripped, and tested several oils, stains, and sealants I already...
  6. Too Many Stickies in JD forum of Lawn and Garden Tractors

    I seem to remember we went through this one time before. But, I notice it seems that the six threads that show at the top of the page on my John Deere Forum in the Lawn and Garden Tractors take up the entire screen when I open the forum forcing a scroll to see the first new thread. I believe...
  7. Front Grapple on Garden Tractors (4x5, X series, etc) - worth it?

    John Deere Forum
    I guess it depends on how often you use it. I operate a very small, low impact firewood operation here. I get a month or so of use between mowing and plowing season, and again between plowing and mowing season in the spring. It is perfect for my needs. Even though it is not too difficult...

    My best laid plan didn't work out so well. The freezing rain and sleet combined with the snow and made a frozen mess. I tackled it early this morning but mostly just scraped about a year of life off my rubber plow edge. Guess I'll drive over it to church this morning, and hope the sun will...

    Patiently waiting on my new deck (finished Wednesday) for the various "wintery mix" chapters to sort out. Snow seemed to taper at around 3", now sleet on top of that. Prediction for freezing rain later tonight when the warm upper air pushes in. I like to let the sleet and freezing rain sit on...

    I shouldn't have used the word "Finally" in my last post. Today Scout and I got out for some chillin on the new deck. Very enjoyable!

    Maybe my post was confused, the vinyl siding was not a problem, my 10 year stored stuff was still color consistent (well after 10 years of garage dust was washed off), as was the pattern. Where the color issue raised its ugly head was on the J-Channel. And my pieces were big enough to have...

    I don't think this material would be called vinyl. TimberTech refers to it as engineered. The balusters were not hollow vinyl, but like the deck material, an engineered surface over engineered core. End cuts look like this: Used 12" 84 tooth blades in miter saws. Did not run blades...

    And - Now - the unveiling of the restored/resurfaced deck; just in time for bitter cold (12° Wind Chill) and a forecast for snow. Deck is open for picnics - BYOHC (Bring Your Own Hot Chocolate) Thanks for your patient following of this thread. Still open for questions.

    @CCMoe Thanks. Those miters, as well as all the ones on the perimeter miters are joined with biscuits and jointer. And, I too am interested and hopeful the Gorilla Glue holds up well here. I've had good luck with it in other applications. I actually had three miter saws set up at various...

    It is the center material, rather than the finish edge. I have two of the same edges on the new change order boards (is that what they're called with this engineered stuff?) I put up as a closure there. They are the only places where ends are visable, everything else was installed with a return...

    Another nice day here in SE PA, and things are beginning to wrap up. After the inspector noted the missing step, and the unattractive opening to the left of the steps, his grandmother, the real power in the family agreed. So, in spite of how easy my change order would have been to implement...

    I'm sure many of you know the The Pennsylvania Farm Show , it is now over 100 years old, and represents itself as the nation's largest indoor agricultural event, featuring 12,000 competitive exhibits, more than 5,200 of which are animal competitions, plus 300 commercial exhibitors. If you've...

    Getting close now. One more step tread to put down, the stair railing, and some patching up the J-Channel at the edge along the house siding. And, I'll cobble something together there on the left side of the step to close off the space under the deck. Last tread is glue setting in the warm...

    And just because there might be a very bored mid-winter browser out there, here is the couple of minutes of bucking the pieces near the trail: Hauled some of it that was solid off to my splitting pile and discovered it is in fact White Oak (which is not nearly as cooperative under the...
