Is it the 6 or 4 head? That one has like a 12 hp feeder motor right?

It took me two months to source someone in Florida with the 1500 that would run 6X6 rough sawn cypress sq stock into 5-1/2" dia rounds. They use that thing to make house logs and what they call "truued pilings". The one I saw in action is a 22" (I think) by 12" with 6 heads at some ridiculous hp per head and a 16 hp feeder.

What a find Darcy! Those pinheiro's are absolutely beastly. Where can you possibly find any room to store it, they're huge.

Re: Whats Your Side Talent?


I wish it was a 5 head, but just a 4. It has some powerful drive motors, top and bottom are like 40 and 35 hp. I have my eye on a commercial property that I would like to buy with the funds I raise selling off this machine.

That is my talent, finding deals.

I think your talent is being willing to let go of them after you find them.

That pinheiro would be with me for a long time, not because I need it but maybe once a year... But if I did... My wife hates me.

Re: Whats Your Side Talent?


I don't know if this is a side talent, or my main talent lol! Or the fact I sold it for 3600 bucks!!

This was built when mdf first came out, I had 2 tv anchors start a business and I built several of these in different styles,

This one was shipped the way you see it, then they design it and finish it . This one went to another tv big wig local girl.

I asked do you want me too measure the components . She looked at me and said I can handle it,

It's supposed to be a flat screen tv stand, components in cut outs DVD and vid tape slots in drawers! Nothing fit lmao!

One day my phone blows up at 1030, people are calling saying they seen my armoire on TV.

The lady was having a baby and they were checking out her nursery. She used it as a changing station for the baby!!

She paid 6500.00 for it, I had too fix one from their prior carpenter. They left the price tag on it, once I seen that I already knew my price range lol

Re: Whats Your Side Talent?


Not even close lol, I have the tools but I have them in storage. After building my garage I got my old car so that took up a lot of real estate,

So I just used my mobile tools too build this, I could build this in anyone's garage,

I found I like too paint and the two don't mix at all,

I'm building a new barn at the kids house so that will have a nice shop.

I'm hoping my youngest grandson really has a cleaning fetish, he swifters the house all the time maybe he will keep it organized lol

I don't even have a garage. Sucks!
Second wife. Second house.
The only thing I miss from my first marriage is the big garage. Does that make me a bad person?

Re: Whats Your Side Talent?


I hear ya there I started out in 12x 20 sheds, I had one for man cave toy of the season sat inside like a showroom.

Did the work in the other one, but before that I worked inside an apartment, kept the neighbors quiet by giving them the crap I built while I honed my craft!!

I've been thinking storage container stacked 2 high placed 24' apart and a roof on that.

4 extra rooms that can be separated! Now that will be a shop.

What I'm thinking of would be cool , comes down too how much containers cost,

Re: Whats Your Side Talent?


My extracurricular activities is ebay and flea markets. I went to college right out of high school about 6 hours away from home and soon realized that I was going to be broke most of the time and I did not like it. I met a guy who was selling books at a flea market and he offered to teach me what he knew. So I went along with him 4 or 5 times then started selling on my own. Many mistakes but I always learned from them. I was able to create a lot of income coming in every week for myself and got through all my years of college doing this. Now all these years later I do the same thing. And I love it. I do ebay year round and have around 300-400 items listed at a time. I typically have around 30-50 sales a week and make really good money doing it. In the summer I do flea markets a couple times a month. Buying and selling I guess is in my blood. I will never stop doing it. I got my wife finally involved with it 2 years ago and she really likes it too. Its good quality time yard saling and flea markets.

I'm good with movie and tv show quotes.....if that can be considered a talent.

Shooting would be my other talent, except it's really not talent. The work you put in is proportionate to the performance you get out.

I think with any talent it requires work to be put in, so yes, I would say that shooting well is a talent, at least in my book. I love shooting, its just ammo is now so dang expensive it has cut WAY back on my practice time. One good thing about it, I don't have to go far to shoot. Actually right out in my back yard works just fine. Love to take my FAL DSA SA-58 out there and cut loose! But at a dollar a round, or more, it will run me right out of house and home in a short amount of time.
