Muahaha! If you're one of those people who insist I buy the optimal tool for every job, you're really gonna hate this one. Today we use a $100 chainsaw and a $30 beam cutter attachment to mill oak into planks. And it works! Then we build a nice little kicker as a proof of concept. Enjoy!
Here is Wranglerstar's video on the saw mill: ispulse.info/video/z62Un26GdGiadG8.html
The mill I used is sold out. Here's pretty much the same thing amzn.to/2vPGG1Y
Here's the Oregon electric chainsaw amzn.to/387riMG
Make sure you use a THICC extension cord!
Here's that drill winch amzn.to/2H2Eary

    Seth you have ventured into my territory finally!!! You need a snatch block or two you can easily 2-3x your winch capacity but it also cuts your pull speed down as much as you multiply the pull factor! Good luck

    I've been watching you since I was 7 and always wanted a mountain bike. Yesterday, my dad surprised me for my 13th birthday and got me a mountain bike. I've been riding it around my city and having the time of my life. Thanks for being a part of my life!

    So fun fact, you can't pressure treat white oak because of how moisture resistant it is. It literally doesn't hold the chemicals. It's nearly impossible to use when making laminated lumber because glue doesn't bond with it well, because the chemicals don't penetrate enough to bond. It's reeeeally good stuff and I work with it fairly often in a marine environment

    milling your own lumber and making projects with it is so badass. Thats an awesome chainsaw mill, and the saw itself was very impressive. I've owned several electric chainsaws and they've all been garbage

    Use pieces of PVC or other small sticks to roll big trees up and down the trails. 3" PVC will hold large amounts of weight when used as a roller under the object will cut time in half moving it around

    Can you please do another bike check with all the bikes you have. Love the videos, you produced premium content and seem to make me laugh at least once during your videos, keep it up😀🚲🚲🚲 PS: you should invite Sam Pilgrim to Berm Peak to shred with you, or at least do a video with him.

    An easy way to get BMX grips on is put the grip on slightly and then push it On with your palm of your hand making sure the grip is straight.

    Hey Seth... first of all, awesome vid, love watching your videos, makes my day every time!! And second... I was just watching one of your old videos, (the berm creek, dungeon clean out) and you said you would use your BMX race bike at a track if you found one, maybe, you could try and find a track, I would love that vid... thx, have a good day!

    Build a zig zag trail with tall Berms gaps rollers etc (almost like a pump track)so you can keep your speed. All your "trails" are like 10 seconds. I would get annoyed riding there. Needs to be something with some length

    An impact driver would work way better with the winch. That's why it has the fitting for one. They have way more torque!
