This weeks Over The Bench video is a look at the Husqvarna consumer grade pole saw. Turns out one of our customers tried using it as a pry bar or car ramp and I'll show you how easy they are to fix.

Out of the over 600 video clips I've taken for my "Over The Bench" series there are a few with some repair mistakes in them. Ya I know, but nobody is perfect. This video will let you try to figure out how I screwed up. The nice thing is that you just need to be observant and not have your head up your ass during the repair like I did. No prior mechanical knowledge required but a few sessions of Wheres Waldo may be beneficial.

I've been posting a lot of video lately. Here is another one. This time I show you how quickly repair costs can add up when something terrible happens, like dropping a tree on a one week old saw.

While on vacation last week, one of the touristy things I did was tour the decommissioned USS LST325. This is a flat bottom ship designed for hauling heavy equipment and troops then docking and unloading right on shore. The nose of the vessel opens up allowing the cargo from the lower deck to be directly unloaded to land.
In the above pic I'm standing on the deck looking to the rear. Ya I know, aft.
Standing in the same spot I'm now looking forward.
In the above pic I'm standing in about the same spot but in the lower cargo hold. You can see the "elevator" for trucks and tanks in the ceiling.
Pretty simple control room or whatever you call this area they steer from.
Although I'm not into ships or ocean travel I did find the tour interesting and I'd do it again just to ask some new questions I've come up with. If you'd like some history of this ship you can find it here.
