      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

oy for those of you crankers out there these are the ticket. I'm not one-just-like-silly-me. with them at all. but these things work. took the 20 fter camping and my 18 volt drill with e 3 nuts installed was effortless. I'm soo relieved to not crank like before. the only thing to watch for is when your cranking one has the feel of inding and tension, tough to do with a tool is doing all the work, so one needs to keep an eye on things sos noyt to snap a cable.

I told you so! Pretty slick, possibly a little high priced for what you get but they did all the tinkering and made them work which is A-OK by me.

A lot of people will be reading or searching in the next few months about these or other easy ways to lift your house. REMEMBER-You need 2 speed winches for them to work. They don't cost that much more than 1 speed so why not do them during construction and not have to replace the 1 speeds most people use? I C Nutz also sells a great winch with a special brake made especially for fish houses at the same price you get them for at anywhere else. I'm not a salesman for them, just happy with the product.

I bought one of these instead. Thought it would be easier. Ran $49, but I liked you don't have to install anything. Just put it in the chuck in your drill and good to go.

I tried it out with a DeWALT XRT 450in/lb hammer drill and it worked well. Half way through though my battery died. I know it wasn't fully charged though.  Nice part was when the battery died I could slip the crank on and finish. 

I was about to buy those IC nuts when I came across this boar. Are the IC nuts a pain to install/remove?

    • Stumbled on this thread and nice to see that cool truck! That's is a sweet find. Reminds me of the project truck of my buddy's uncle. 1992 F150 2x4 6" suspension lift, Motometal forged wheels, and 33" tires.
    • Sacrilege!! Burn him! Burn him! 
    • Picked up a beat up old snowmobile sleigh with holes and cracks for cheap. 20 years in fiberglass mfg helped a lot! Fun little project to haul the grandsons around for some ice fishing and trail riding.
      Still need to add the windshield. I call it the "Monster Hauler!"
    • Agree to the fact that sometimes things we smoke do add up money wise.  I smoked 35 pounds of goose sausage today for the kid, spent around 100 bucks, trim, seasonings, casing etc.  But......... i got to drink about 13,14 and watch the queens while i did it, thats why I smoke. lol
    • From the tree I assume, not the stand.  But close for sure!  Nice to have a 10 pointer down (and all the other stuff) by this time of year.
    • Sucks to be you, I guess. You really don't know much about BBQ, do you?  
    • Except your thesis is contradicted by the fact that much BBQ doesn't really have much in the way of "strong spices".   
    • I wouldn't call BBQ pork gourmet. It's just finding enough of the right combinations of strong spices and salt to make the poor, tough cuts tolerable to eat. Kinda like the buffalo wings craze. Wings used to be the throwaway parts of a chicken you had to take to get breast meat. Now per pound they are more expensive than any other part of the chicken.    Not a complaint at all as I am pretty addicted to wings and I live pulled pork as well.  Just an observation./opinion. No harm or hurt feelings intended.
