The icon looks like this...

Another tip... once you pulled up a picture and you'd like more info... you can click on a line of code under the picture that reads "Click to search forum for picture". and it'll take you right to the post or posts where that picture was used.

WOW! What a feature!   :o

I have a 1988 manual WM LT40 that I've converted to hydraulic using the non standard method. Some parts are from WM and others are from other applications. My goal is to build a mill from scratch that is truly a portable, one man operation. .... Now that I have a nagging back, my definition of a one man mill includes no tailing of the lumber or slabs or wrestling logs before or after they get to the mill. One person and a pig tail control box.   ::) .... :P
