The MAN thread!

You can thank the little off-topic sidetrack on roadfix's "Man Gauge" thread for this one.

OK, guys, lets do our best Tim Allen impressions and post up what you have that's "bigger and better"! Arrrrr Arrrrr Arrrrr!

Here's the "surf rod" that I mentioned:

Watch where you're swingin' that thing, Allen, you'll dent your fence

Overkill.
It was the biggest and heaviest at the time, 800 cc's and twin cylinder, but Arctic Cat has a 1000 cc machine out now! Hmmm

This might be a little over the top, too.
I took a cheap Russian made .410 shotgun and turned it into a tactical weapon
Do I really need a shotgun with a shortened stock, pistol grip, tactical high intesity lighting, laser sight, quick acquisition sight and a 10 round magazine? I thought I did.....

Constance, nice Buck! Is that an 8- or 9-point? To me, it looks like the forward tine on the left antler has a double point. How much did it weigh dressed? I don't hunt, but I do like venison, especially smoked. Yummy!

Jeeks, is that a custom-built deck for the table saws? And is that a drill press in the back? Oh man, I get the jitters, thinking about the things I'd like to make.

Pacanis, where I usually go fishing, also has a large sandy area that's used by off-road vehicles to have fun in. I don't have any ATV's, so I haven't really looked around there, except to see if I can drive my car down some of the pathways to get access to the riverbank. Of course, my Taurus can't make it down those roads.

That rod is a 12-footer. It BARELY fits in my car. Some places sell 14- and 15-footers. Makes me wish I had a truck!

LOL. I'm not worried about denting the fence. We had enough of that happen last December with the big ice storm. What I was concerned with, is off the frame of the pic, above and to the right, is the powerline servicing the house. I bet I can tag it with the pole, but there is no WAY I'm going to try!

Pacanis, that shotgun would be a perfect solution to the coyote problem out here!

There aren't many places to ride in PA without getting kicked out, especially up here by the lake. So that's why that ATV is truly overkill for my purposes, but it goes good in snow, so I can still ride it in the winter.

Oh, and why stop at coyotes? That shotgun is the perfect solution for lots of problems

It's actually two 10" old Rockwell tablesaws joined together by a router table I built the outfeed table on the back with melamine plywood. All three machines use the same fence.

I just cleaned up down there, I'll try to take some more pics. The two machines behind the saw are a 14" bandsaw with the 6" riser block and a 12" surface planer.
