    I wish there was a way....

    I wish there was a way to look up the pictures that you have posted. I know there has been more than once where I have posted a picture or diagram and then sometime later the same subject will come up again. Then, I post it again.

    Photo suggestion

    I was looking to see how something was made on a certain brand of backhoe a while ago in the photo section. It pertained to a certain model.

    Cut limbs from loader

    Check this chainsaw attachment out. I have thought about it a few times over the years. I thought that I would wind up breaking a blade. That is why I haven't tried to make one. Can't see how you could keep from messing up your chainsaw. I would like to see one actually work.

    Monitor flashing?

    One of our computers is a HP Pavilion with windows 98. When in use, the screen will flash on and off. If you turn the power off to the monitor for a few minutes, it is all right for a while.
