    I wanted to assume that but its so much more enjoyable that you should admit experiencing the one downfall of your magnet system. 73, Mike

    Beyond the tally wacker whip there is a dump to take care of. I hope to show before and after pictures, if I can remember where pictures are taken from.







    This is just the edge of the dump and contained household trash and tons of carpeting.

    Nice repurposing of the IBC containers. Do you find your yard bangs them up pretty badly? I have some I'd like to use but I have concerns their offloading process (throwing bins in a pile with loader forks and dragging out the empty containers) would ruin them pretty quick.

    The first time I brought them in it was a train wreck. We now have an understanding if they want the goods, they take care of the package. They have fork lifts that rotate 180 degrees to empty them. The inside plastic slips out sometimes if I do not wire them to the frame. Only one has been destroyed out of the 24 on hand and that was my fault.

    Hey. P76, this is probably not worth your efforts with your hands full with other stuff but I just wanted you to know about it because its sort of in your neighborhood. Might be some "treasures", then again maybe not...

    Thanks for the lead. It is worth the 60 mi. one way trip for the contacts it provides. Who knows, the owner might be a big wig in the community and provide more business or hunting/fishing rights. Just had my second shoulder replaced Thur. so this type of project would not get any attention for a couple of months. Good luck hunting this year. Pheasants have been plentiful.

    Hopefully a person will not have the same problem with this wrist magnet. It would be very hard to explain it to the wife.
