    I just got back from the Movie. I'm going to go back a few pages and see what I missed.

    What size are you thinking? I would suggest 20 ton at least.

    It is a 30 ton model that can go vertical or horizontal. Usually 1500 bucks or so for $800
    Includes everything but the hydraulic fluid.

    You would be proud. I spent about and hour helping her do a little house cleaning to butter her up then slid the offer on the table real smooth while one of the pups was snuggling her. She couldn't have said no :)

    I leave for Shakopee tomorrow night for 2 more days of babysitting.

    I am thinking I will go back to the metal founts. I am not sure putting a drinking cup halfway up the barrel would help me much. I do not think the smaller birds could reach it.

    I am going to have to work on the design more next summer. Winter watering is such a pain.

    Fortunately menards doesn't open until 6am on Friday so I don't have to stay out all night. Plus I can't imagine people lining up around the block for anything menards sells like they would a target or Best Buy.

    Either way I'm still not stoked about the crowds but I think a shiny new splitter will make it worthwhile

    I am less than stoked by crowds.

    I doubt many would line up for Menards. But I would be there at 6am.

    You get some pretty gnarly grained wood in the southern part of the state, some nice wood too, but more gnarly wood than we get up north.(Togo). I think you will like the 30 tons for that stuff.
