    Well, since I inserted a washer between the impulse line and the case (#8 SAE) on two of my Asian Hybrids, it was time to run them a bit today. Cut up a bunch of the Hard Maple that came down in the Spring Tornado. This is across the street from my Daughter's house, we can cut and take what we want.

    The Dr Al Hybrid wears a 28" light bar, and my HL Supply Hybrid wears a 24" E bar. Both saws started easily, idled fine, and ran well and re started well, so the fix was a success! This stuff was about perfect for giving them both some break in time!

    I also replaced the handle I made for my log splitter. The 1.5" round Hard Maple one was failing, so I made a more substantial one from Black Oak with the help of my draw knife. This one should be more than stout enough! (I bolted it and glued it with PL Premium).

    I also slid this stick under the log so I could cut through it w/o rocking the chain in the gravel. Guess I got real lucky, did not realize how deep I went!

    Put up a couple ladder stands on my new hunting area. After 20 years of hunting from the same stand I had to relocate. I only moved 1/2 mile. Used the Marvin pole saw to clear some shooting lanes.

    Finally finished cleaning up some nasty rotted trees that I don’t remember when I laid them down. Still have several to go but got a new tree that was in the way of mowing down and cleaned up. Then cleared maybe half an acre of 4-5 foot tall grass with my old Troy bilt riding mower. Closed down the pool and got the pool steps pressure washed, and the front porch and bricks pressure washed on the house. Moral of the story today was don’t cut down more than you can clean up in the same day or you won’t get to it. [​IMG]

    Found out Wednesday after clearing all that Monday that I am apparently allergic to poison ivy/oak. Never paid attention to it because I’ve never had a reaction. Oh and tweaked a muscle in my stomach to. So no more clearing until I learn how to tell it in the woods or just wait till it all dies at this point. Had to go get a shot because it’s in my eyes, face, arms, and chest lol.

    Been piddling on my mini Mac off and on for a while. Had it running at one point then the fuel line went to crap. Changed that and got it to fire for a few seconds and now it won’t do anything. About to just give it the boot and find me an easier to work on small saw.

    Wouldn't just about any saw fit the "easier to work on" criteria?

    Haha yes it would. Really gotten taking it apart into just a few minutes. It’s not that bad to work on, but I know it’s not worth a lot so the more time I spend on it and the more parts I put into it I’m losing more and more money. Thought i had the carb working on it but a new kit is $20 for the zama carb and no new carbs to be found. Heck I would take a pretty cheap popular right now over this cause I can at least get parts and work on it easily.

    I am currently putting a 10-10S back together, compression came up with a new set of rings.

    Younger son stopped by on his way to the landfill so we cleaned the chimney and let him take the bag of creosote with him.

    Mowed the lawn in the afternoon, lots of leaves on the ground already so several trips to the garden to unload the bagger and add organic matter to the garden.

    Mrs. Heimann wanted to do a little shopping so we went to town, bought 4 cans of Blaine's brand brake cleaner for $1.99 each and the fall weed & feed.

    Hopefully I will get the 10-10S finished up tomorrow.

    Spent the morning cleaning and servicing my muzzle loader and the afternoon shot it 16 times trying to sight it in. Seems to be wandering around the target a bit but is stable enough now I feel comfortable deer hunting with it. I'll need to see how it fires out of a clean barrel as I'm going on a pig/deer hunt later this month on Ossabaw Island off the Georgia coast. This is a primitive weapons hunt but handguns are allowed so I'll take the muzzle loader and my .44 Magnum. Gonna do a little deer hunting this evening as the primitive weapons season opened today here in Georgia. Rifle season opens next Saturday. I never wake up early to hunt opening day. I'm just an evening hunter. You know, warmer, drier and NOT morning...

    On Ossabaw the pigs move out onto the marsh during low tide.
    Look out at the hard flats if you see pigs they will come back to the trees as the tide comes up.

    Forget pigs, the trout and big reds are biting in the creeks around the island.

    This afternoon I messed around with a Stihl 021 that I can't get to run right. Tried switching carbs around with another 021 and then got to the point that neither one of them would run. I replaced a newly cracked fuel hose on one and that's finally going again... So I'm back where I started.
    Quit that project and tried out a new ladder stand location on the new deer hunt area. Shot a doe out of a herd of 8 deer. I only was seeing three before I fired. Looked like a covey of quail, they went in all directions. Have that quartered up and on ice and kicking up my feet and watching Columbo on TV.
