    Hey Marc,
    Below the "Reply to Thread" box (the box in which I am now typing my reply)
    and just below the heading icon selection, there is a bar marked "Additional
    Options."

    If you don't see the box underneath the bar, but just see the bar, there is
    an arrow at the far right of the bar that toggles the box on and off.

    In that box there's a "Manage Attachments" button, which opens a window.

    In that window, "Browse" your PC for the file (must be a listed type), select it,
    then click "Upload". The image will NOT show when you preview the post but
    you will see the filename and size above the "Manage Attachments" button.

    The image will show in the thread after you "Submit Reply."

    I'll save this info just in case I ever get that 1:1 portable sawmill I've been wanting - I was wondering how I was going to move logs from the pile to the mill, now I know.

    Thanks guys that is exactly what i needed. I will start work on them right now. I just finished my first entirely scratchbuilt structures. Which coincidentely was logging camp bunkhouses. So now in no time i will have an operating logging camp.
    Thanks for all the help guys!!

    Anyone got any ideas about where i can find the pullies needed to rig this thing up?
    Or does anyone have a preferance for what type of string to use for rope?
    This will be an HO scale model.

    Anyone know if a Lidgerwood Tower Log Skidder could be used in the Steel Tower Skidder?

    This is what i was hoping to place in the model scene. Was the Lidgerwood ever used for spar trees or did it seperatly lift logs itself?

    Hey Marc
    Do you know what the crane like thing in the front was used for on the Lidgerwood?
    The 125 foot steel spar at the top seems to support the logs then a pulley farther our on one of the lines is what does the lifting.
    Does it have something to do with pulling the line to pull the log into the air?
