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!

Magicman:
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. :)
Find something to do that interests you.

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

Like Magicman says, Logrites really like being with family, I have 4 and they always get along together well.
logging small time for years but just learning how,  2012 36 HP Mahindra tractor, 3point log arch, 8000# class excavator, lifts 2500# and sets logs on mill precisely where needed,  Peterson ATS upgraded to WPF mill, maple syrup a hobby that consumes my time. looking to learn blacksmithing.

   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.)
