Branson do you have access to maul oak?  If you do how about PMing me your address and I'll swap you a piece of Bo Dock for a piece of maul oak so we can both make a mallet.

Stoney, I'll have to do some work to find some.  I have a hard time distinguishing among all the live oaks, and especially between the maul oak and the interior live oak.  It's coming on to a good time for cutting wood, so let me see if I can get some of the right stuff.  The swap sounds like a great idea!

Ok, send me a PM and I'll send you some Bo Dock.  I have some that has been cut about 10 years.  I didn't stop it from checking as I planned to use them for anvil post, post vise mounts etc. so you will see checking.

PM to come.  There's an arborist I just remembered who might be able to direct me to some maul oak.  I'll try to contact him this week.  I want to play with this wood, too.

Sent you my address as well.  I'm an arborist, but due to my health I'm not active.  I have arborist friends and can furnish local woods that you might not have available.

This thread is about BIG? I parked my Triumph Stag next to my biggest BAHCO wrench for size comparison

They both look like models! Is that BAHCO really that shade of gray? Or has it been bead blasted?

I like that, Bus!
Maybe I can do something like that ( or have it done, I always have trouble getting my chainsaw to start!)

Those things start?!? No wonder it takes me so much more time to cut wood with one....

Most people do not realize that chainsaws come with a built in yard sensor.
The yard sensor is what makes the chainsaw work everywhere but in your yard.
It works in the store, it works in the garage, and it works at the chainsaw shop.
It just doesn't work when you take it out into your yard....where the tree is.
Just a weathered light rust/WD40 mix patina.

I think I may have been down by your place Papaw.  Is it near Rockport?

I have to go down there sometimes for work.  We take customers fishing out of Redfish Lodge. Good fishing between the mainland and South/North Padre Islands. Caught a big one last time & used my tag.

I generally like to fish with a guide, but mostly I like those that put you at a good spot and let you fish.

I am north of Rockport by quite a ways. Alvin is just 20 miles south of Houston.

I thought Rockport was closer to Houston. Still, 3 hours from Alvin is closer than my 16 hrs from Colorado for fishing.

I imagine you have similar fishing up there?

Lots of fishing here, but we are not right on the coast. Most fishing here is done from Galveston or Freeport.
I am not a fisherman at all. Haven't wetted a line since my oldest son was 12 or so.

I never fish either, but I went down there twice, its part of my job. Taking people to sports is also, dont watch any otherwise.

Tough job, but you know what they say...

I'd rather be out at garage sales, estate sales and auctions kooking for a nice bix of rust.
