Not familiar with that term. Those logs look a bit longer than 36" .

Yard as a verb as in `to pull`. Also called high leads. The type of logging most suitable for steep ground.

Danman I`ve heard that Tolko Lavington mill sometimes cuts metric sized wood for the Japanese markets. Three brothers started that mill, one was the money manager, one was a forester, and the third was an engineer. I knew the forester one and he told once that his engineer brother designed that mill so that it could be quickly changed to cut specialty products and there have been times when the Japanese markets were quite lucrative. One of the reasons they went from a small local operation to 3rd largest in Canada in about 60 years.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

You can count on one thing, the world can't go 100% metric until after I shuffle off this mortal coil, 'cause I ain't changing.

They are a key player in the west Chuck, and I saw on the maps that they have plants in my territories, I will be visiting Tolko and Weiyerheuser and many more when I travel out west. For now I am only about half way through Quebec. Ontario and Quebec have at least 375 potential and clients to visit. I love my new job, this week I saw two herds of Deere near a river in Coaticook Quebec, beautiful country. And to think, they are paying me to do what I love, traveling !!! and meeting new people.

That's interesting that material basically still imperial measure with all complaints. Metric would be more accurate . Because I work in 1/16 or .o62 of an inch. Millimeters is 1/25 of an inch would be .040 of an inch .

[QUOTE=CharleyL;2030849]Actually not quite right. All of the Apollo Program blueprints had both Imperial and Metric dimensions on them. However, most of the pieces were made to common imperial dimensions. It was transition time and some vendors were working in Metric and some (most) were working in Imperial. Fortunately for me, the electrical work required very little of either dimensional measurements. Volts, Amps, and Ohms remained the same.

There has been a lot of talk about the moon recently and metric was not used to get there in 1969. NASA has agreed to use metric not because it is better but because the rest of the world uses it and they want to keep things standard. But I still use my argument that a rose by any other name is still a rose. For every imperial measurement, there is a metric one. Tear a piece of paper out of a notebook and measure it in inches. Then measure it in metric. Has the size changed? So is it easier to ask for a 2x4 6 feet 2 and a 1/2 inches long or the same thing in metric size? Imagine that you had to pay based on the amount of numbers that something measured,
