I wonder how much that extension ladder weighs?

Those old wooden ones were absurdly heavy in shorter lengths.

Michigan Ladder says hemlock rails and hickory rungs, 300 lb rating...
16ft = 36 lbs ~ 20ft = 45 lbs ~ 24ft = 54 lbs ~ 28ft = 63 lbs
32ft = 72 lbs ~ 36ft = 81 lbs ~ 40ft = 90 lbs
 
Their single straight 300 lb ladders run about 2 lbs per ft.
8ft = 16 lbs, 14 ft = 29 lbs, and 20 ft = 43 lbs.
 
Alaco uses Douglas Fir and tapered truss side rails.
The monkey is unavailable so I'll have to post the charts for Alaco later.
Here we go...

Re: Misc photographs

I've seen this picture a number of times but it was always cropped down to the race car and his lost wheel. But now someone has taken the whole picture and colorized it to good effect. Gives it a whole different feel.

Re: Misc photographs

Ha!  I looked at the picture before reading your comment and thought to myself, "glatt, that right there is an uncropped version of that image you've seen so many times.  So cool."

I always thought the guy was on a race track, but he's on a winding country road.

Re: Misc photographs

Guy's thinking: Hmmm, where have I seen that wheel before?
It looks like the right one is getting ready to go, too.

Re: Misc photographs

I had that happen to me once. The guy in the Rolls Royce behind stopped, set a kid across the green to fetch the wheel and gave me a lift to the ferry.

It is a race, and he was leading up until this point, but yes it's a road race.
Back when the automobile was a rich mans toy they raced on public roads until too many people got hurt. It's one thing to squash peasant spectators but when the cars got faster and rich guys were getting hurt they started building racetracks with trees safely removed from the perimeters.

Michigan is a little primitive, here we see an Amazon delivery vehicle for Michigan.

The Osteotome,  the very first chain saw.
It was used to cut the pelvic bone for difficult deliveries before C-sections were invented...

Was this from the era where women were disposable baby makers?

Re: Misc photographs

It was an improvement over the hammer and chisel method,  but not as good as C-section, nor as good as anesthesia.

Now hold on a minute there. The first Caesarian delivery (though not named as such) was in 272 BC. Unless you are joking and I am too dim to get it.


Hey! That's me up there!
