'Nother Logrite in the Stable
« on: August 11, 2017, 12:33:13 pm »
 

 
I was successful enough in Jeff's PR "Poston" game to win 4th place which netted me another 60" Logrite Cant Hook, but it needed some slight modifications before it could join my team.
 

 
First it needed my customary Reflective Orange Tape, so a bit of cleaning was necessary.  Next, I wanted to dip the handle end to protect it against being damaged.
 

 
The cushion rubber handles got a coat of rubber cement so that the plastic dip would adhere.
 

 
And then it was a series of dips into this.
 

 
To get a nice buildup.
 

 
I also gave the old Logrites another dip.
 

 
Team Logrite is ready for action.   logrite_cool

The Magicman liquid translations . For adding dish soap to water he uses Glugs.  Now the question is how many plastic dips does it take ?

I want to just stand back a safe distance and watch you use all of those.

Ordered mine last night and it still hasn't arrived. Shouldn't a helicopter be flying over by now?

I would like to ''saw'' one of them at my place so he could ''leave 'em''.

Nice score. If it was anything to do with DP, I thought it would cost $300.

I thought seriously about getting another 60" when we were at Logrite in July.  The 48" works well with small logs and logs up to ~30".  Logs larger than ~30" need the larger hook as well as the extra length of the 60" to manage them.  I now have two of each.   ;D

Maybe you can't but I certainly can.  Yup, they are perfectly sized to handle the logs that they are designed for.  The sawmill specials have a smaller handle with a bat knob on the end and are for turning lighter weight logs and cants.  The others have man sized handles with a cushion grip that are far superior to wooden handled hooks and peaveys for turning and adjusting larger and heavier logs.

Most of us do or have. Maybe you could get them to build you a junior sized model.

Please save one of those poor, abused LogRites. Look at that stable of scars! The only one not showing evidence of maltreatment is the new one, and we all know its fate as soon as the rain stops. This man even brags about force-feeding them alcohol and compressed air! I expect to see tearful tv commercials about LogRite rescues any day now. Operators are standing by.

There are no wimps allowed in my crowd.  You gotta carry your load or it's out of the kitchen for you.

I have more scars that those hooks will ever see. :-\   :D
