well thats a nice mo sheen there... d-7 is a good work horse.
Im almost finished with the other side brakes that i started on friday. had a bit of mis hap and will post pics soon.
a substantial timber i used to shim up a bottle jack exploded while she was up in the air and was quite exciting as my buddy was laying under it at the time. Boy oh boy... first ya hear a crack and another then BLAM it dropped!! the wheel was still on and there was another big stump under her so she only dropped a few inches but WOW. a real attention getter when 10 ton moves unexpectdly.
we both joked about it but it took a few minutes to realize that it caused the front blade to do a little side shifting and it knocked the "REAL HEAVY"
old mill wood stove off its pearch and broke the flue pipe at the breech!
.. had to go up the the big house and steal a 6" elbow from a back up alaska stove and swap it out with a full fire going!
it all worked out.
