i disagree. there were plenty of people helping me out with information that was relevant, and even a few offers were made. He showed up with his rat pulley and great. My first few replies to it were docile and tolerant.
but then, "what the hell am I talking about?"
im not egotistical. im usually fairly humble. if youve read any of my posts i'll ask for people's advice, and generally take their word before my gut feeling.
but dont suggest an idea that is clearly unacceptable to my standards (great if it works for your batavus, but im not asking for a pulley that works for a batavus), and then, after i explicitly tell you I am not interested, question "what i'm talking about."
But if you really must know what i'm talking about, i'm talking about a pulley that is not made out of wood.
And ive makeshifted plenty of repairs. plenty. So im not doubting your pulley works. This is just not even close to what im asking for. Sorry to come down on ya buddy, but this is just what im talking about.
