I use a dish detergent bottle for bar oil. You can see it on the attached pic.
Sold!!!! I'll be doing it from now on! Thanks for the tip brother.
I have been doing that too for almost 40 years...My dad taught me that when I was in Jr High...very practical!!!
You may want to get a couple of bottles, one for summer oil and another one for winter oil. Seeing how I don't do a lot of cutting in the winter, I can get by using a smaller bottle for the winter oil.
I'm just the opposite, I cut mostly in cold weather. I like to be done cutting by March, or early April. Then split and stack April & May and be done by the time of heat, bugs, & poison ivy. When I can.
Heavy wet snow on the tote tank roof makes it sag, but should pop back in place, if not, I'll jam wood under it to make it level again
took the kids sledding Saturday morning, then headed over to another tree in the road
So now I'm dead tired, but I got a great load of walnut (?). The chips were really golden yellow
So tired , I made the kids unload the trailer for me.
I spotted another tree in the road on the way home, but had to let it lay, I at the point I'll slip and cut myself with the saw or something
I'm not an expert, all I know is that it has frozen spots that won't let me spike the fiskars XA22 pickaroon into them, almost like trying to stab a rock
You are a man on mission Rowerwet , taking advantage of the storm "freebies", wood from heaven falling into the lap of those with the drive to go get it. You remind me of me!
I recognize the brick building down the end of the road in the first pic. I drive by there on my to work.
Not sure which one you mean, all the pictures are from Haverhill, if you mean the school, I live within sight of it
Great idea... I'm using that idea from now on!
Doesn't look like Walnut to me... Mulberry maybe?
I attended it. Walked to it every day.
X3. That's definitely not walnut. It does look like mulberry. That's much better wood than walnut.
I use gear lube bottles. They work great and you can adjust/cut the top to adjust flow plus they have a cap that snaps on.
I like the dish detergent bottle idea.
Keep on a scrounging Rowerwet
Any bottle that lets you control the flow of oil into the saw is a good thing. Nice to have a bottle that the top can be closed when not pouring.
