  1. That would be a common log, naturally...
  2. So mass is measured in pounds? Has something changed? It bugs me a bit when people refer to weight in kgs as well.
  3. Well... Mod note: Link removed due to the threads relocation
  4. It looks to me like maybe he drew it out, but left some material on the end to make the leaf?
  5. And anyone who got too close would bolt.
  6. That's what I was thinking...
  7. And Terre Haute. My Grandparents live in that area-- Millersburg.
  8. He is after all the Grammar hammer.
  9. Mine, which was modified by welding some big square tube onto the mounting bracket, is mounted on the table the anvil is on. That's not how I set it up, that's how I got it, but I haven't had any problems with it getting in the way of using the anvil. Some time I'll get around to taking pictures and posting them. In the picture you can see the table (before I mounted the vise, this was before I actually started, so I now have a different setup). The vise goes on the far end, opposite the anvil, and would face toward the left if it was mounted.
  10. I tried the above with my 170 lb Trenton (29 1/2 x 10 3/4 x 4 1/8), and got about 220 lbs. Of course the formula would be different for different brands with different shapes,etc. It appears that 3/10 would be about right for mine, instead of 2/3. I guess this thread got sidetracked....
  11. Just be careful that stuff doesn't shift and get you like a pile of logs can...
  12. And the more you learn the more you learn how much there is that you still have to learn.... I agree that I am and am likely to remain a beginner for a while...
  13. Simplifying that formula would be (length * width * height + 2/3 x (length x width * height))/10, = (5/3 * (length * width * height)) * 1/10, = 1/10 * 5/3 * (length * width * height) = 1/6 * (length * width * height). So 1/6 * 1800 = 300. If a different fraction was added it would simplify down to being multiplied by a different fraction (1/2 would change it to 3/20 instead of 3/18 (=1/6) ).
  14. Mill balls as mentioned in many other threads like
  15. Well... I'm sixteen and worked last year and plan to work this year at a strawberry type farm and have helped a guy bale hay. Now starting to think about colleges as I want to do some type of engineering in the future.
