      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 .

is there a quality grease gun available?

Recommended Posts

Over the years i have bought several of these small grease guns that you put a cartridge into to grease the bearings your boat trailer. Same thing happens every time. They work for a couple times and then they quit. They pump a couple squirts and then the piston slides to the top past all the grease and it doesnt work any more. Any one else have this problem? Sounds like a stupid question, but do you peel all the tin foil off the cartridge before you put it in the gun or just perforate it like i did.?

I always pull off all the foil.Problem is...I still have problems with the guns.I don't get grease behind the piston but something jams where you can't pump any grease out of it.Then all of a sudden they start working again.Its a mystery to me too???!!!I have 6 guns and just try to find the one that is working at the time.

Lincoln grease guns are good. They are Blue in color and they have several models. This is pretty much the most popular grease gun for heavy equipment contractors. Also grease John Deere Grease guns are pretty good availible at any John Deere Implement Dealership. But for the most part grease guns are ment to get you dirty there is really no way to avoid it.
