Man! I used to see those Coatimundis everywhere when I was down in Panama. I didn't know we had them here in the States.

So, what were you gonna do with that dead one? You know, they taste like chicken..
Eddie,

We have breeding populations down here. I am in Waco, and the dead one came from 3 miles west of my clinic. 'Course, there's a little bit of everything as far as wildlife around here and more coming, and then there's the animals , deer, mountain lions, Mexican eagles, bald eagles, etc., etc. I took the dead one out to the place and buried it. I didn't want it laying in the road.

Dang swingarm got me today..

We use a holesaw to "notch" the end of the swingarms to fit up tight against the swingarm pivot tube. This leaves a razor sharp edge where the hole saw goes thru the tube. I had one of the arms leaning against the wall and accidently bumped it. As it started to fall over, I grabbed it without thinking.. slamming my palm down on the sharp end..

Brushed on a bunch of Liquid Bandage but I don't think it's working.. Ended up fixing it with some gauze and duct tape..

I would continue to use the liquid bandage. I had almost the same cut as you and my wife forced me to go to the hospital. At the hospital they cleaned it up a bit and then told me it was a really tough place for stitches and proceeded to put the liquid crap on it. I have great insurance, but the out of pocket was still $800 for something I could have done at home. I told my wife next time unless my hand is cut off I am taking care of it with duct tape myself!!!

That sucks. Those are the ones that keep hurting and are in the way for a while, too... making it difficult to ever get anything done.

Actually, it only hurt for a split second when I first cut it. The steel was so sharp it cut it quick and clean.. like a scalpel..


I've just been painting on the liquid bandage, covering with a big bandaid, and wrapping in Duct Tape while at the shop. At home, I just use a bandaid and ACE wrap.


I think I'll pick up a suture kit and watch a few YouTube videos for the next time..

We carry a "minor surgery" military kit while wheeling, They have a few sizes of sutures in it. Here are some fresh sutures to add to a kit:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/160934026866...84.m1423.l2649

For many years I made knives, both folding and fixed. I kept a roll of electrical tape hanging on a nail next to the buffer and belt grinder. It always had an inch or two pulled out with the end folder over to make "one handed" use of it. I learned that from an old timer, I can't remember his name. In the knife shop, it is those two machines that required 100 percent focus, A blade could be out of your hand and headed toward you at a very fast clip in no time at all! I used that electrical tape a few times.

Hope everyone had a MERRY CHRISTMAS
and a "safe" New Year!

We have been looking for a suture kit. My dogs runs through barbed wire fences like it is nothing and she cuts herself deep but she doesn't seem to feel pain. But we sew her up everytime she does it. I think we have done it at least 4 times with just a normal needle and thread. The hard part about it is she gets so excited she won't lay still so my whole family will pin her down for the stitches.

Hey Eddie. How's it going? Hope you had a good holiday. Also hope lots of people got GPF bumpers for Christmas.

I'm helping a buddy build a rear bumper for a TJ down here (in GA/FL, where I moved to) and we referenced mine that you build a lot, as well as this thread. Lots of differences because we used what we had available, but very solid. Anyway, I know I've seen it here in this thread somewhere, but are you buying the spindle and sleeve somewhere or are you machining them? Thanks.
Dave

Also, is your phone number still the same (757-xxx-xx81)?

Hey Dave!

I get my 1.375" diameter spindles HERE.

I bore my own tubes and make my aluminum caps on my lathe.. manually..

JCR has a kit with the same spindle size.. AtoZ has their MegaSpindle setup.. I don't sell spindle kits anymore because they take me too long to make. Can hardly keep up with making them for my own bumpers at the moment. I actually crank out my pivot tubes on my lunch break...

Wow these bumpers look awesome. I have heard so much good about them. Can I get a price for a regular rear bumper with d-ring mounts and 2" receiver priced to 30518? And also a price for a tire carrier as well? Can't make up my mind if I want to leave my spare in the bed all the time or not.
