Well, at least YOU are better informed than your smart-mouthed friend..
Ray (at Extreme) perfected these blocks and some tried anything and everything to steal his design. IF he can lick that Pancreatic (cancer?) problem, he will be back.. Funny how NO body hands him any support or credit, just bad-mouthing and innuendos, when he cannot fight back while he is down.. I would not blame him if he told you all to go to Blazes.. I only come on here to try to offer information from experience of operating these in the REAL World (Farming). Which is more than most here will ever know about their actual use. These fellows who are squatting in here every day sometimes need to be dragged behind the Wood Shed once in a while. Wouldn't hurt my feelings if I never looked at this site again, but I refuse to let these Sneaker-wearing upstarts have the final say.. Probably wearing Designer Glasses and their Sister's pants(Nylon). Crap, I have Work shoes OLDER than most fellows on here... From what I had gathered, Josh seemed to be an intelligent Honorable builder, but often he has spoiled that by his piling-on in several instances that show a shallow, lack character.. His latest insinuation just reinforces what I suspected..
Ron. Most have no idea that my Shop has never been posted nor mentioned on here and will not be. Dirt-bags on here would just bad-mouth it like they have others or try to steal by one method or the other.. I only deal out-the door and cash on the Barrel-head.
