Skis on Traps!

7 posts in this topic

I just picked up a pair of great condition Rossignol 160 downhill skis without bindings. I am going to mount them on my Fish Trap Pro...any suggestions?

I want to keep it simple stupid...KISS!

Timmy?

We put skies on our traps to save the bottoms.Cut them to length ,2 screws countersunk and you should be all set.

Thanks Tank...I was thinking about putting four 4 inch blocks to raise it up a bit!

I was thinking it wouldn't push as much snow if I did this. Plus raise the seat a bit. Then I run into the trouble of the skirt not sealing the edges...I have a few months to weigh out my options confused

Nice idea on the lift kit. That would have to help when pulling in snow. 4 inches might be too much as that might lift the skirt too much. But a 2 inch lift might work well. I'd try it but our two traps stack with just enough room in our Jeeps and fit just right under Billys toneu cover.

Try the lift kit then you could always reduce the height if needed...

I put my skis on top of those worthless runners clam has. Brought it up about half inch but anything is better than those runners . . .I just screwed through the holes that were there.

I have been contemplating rigging up my trap with some type conduit pipe that could easily be raised/lowered for the purpose of easier dragging through deep snow I haven't tried anything yet but was thinking something along the lines of using spring buttons that are currently used or the traps or some type of locking spring hinge

I saw some Guy's at the Silver TA that used your idea Tim. They pulled it all over the place...they also had a machine, so I guess it didn't really much matter.

    • You'd think they'd give Stalock a look.  His overall NHL stats are OK and not that bad down in IA either....Kemps has to have a "great" night and have everything in front of him going our way to be good...he's not going to steal games for us like Dubs can IMO...give Stalock a shot in the nets!
    • 1 I'm on board, but not sure how you go about doing that. 2 laughably impossible 3 Sure, but it's not going to make a whole lot of a difference. 4 OK, I assume it would need to be replaced with something else though. 5 is open to a lot of interpretation as to what "make no sense"   None of that really puts the power back to the people though.   Do you still envision a representational government with elected leaders?    
    • The fumbling thing and also the blocking and catching the ball where all things that I thought he should have been able to improve on.  To me the failure to improve in those areas seems to indicate he might lack the right stuff upstairs.  With his physical gifts doing something like blocking shouldn't be that hard.  Its not rocket science, you just need to know your assignment and mostly just be in the right position.  Its almost like he couldn't focus on more than one thing at a time.  If he got the ball he could focus on running but not securing the ball, if he didn't get the ball it seems like he couldn't handle the concept of picking up a rusher if need be and then getting out into his route, maybe it was just too much for him to process at game speed.   Like I said he's probably the best runner most of us have ever seen but the rest of his game was so flawed.

    • And trust me, these things will be much easier to accomplish than some progressive or conservative utopia. That is the real pipe dream.

    • Here are few steps, I'm sure you and Del will team up and say they are impossible.

      1. Remove the two parties from power.
      2. Keep money out of politics.
      3. Dump the electoral college.
      4. Dump our tax system - not worth our time.
      5. Dump old laws that make no sense.

      It might even be fun to elect a government who doesn't need to spy on everyone or bail out billionaires but you get it.
       

    • Bahhh ha ha ha ok there champ. More like you see someone else post up a clever meme and a few days later you claim it as you own, often failing to comprehend its meaning in the first place. Of course you do ok with a few of the easy ones.
    •   I prefer a unicorn utopia, but what can you do?   I take it you got nuthin on how you go about "returning the power to the people"
    • Look at it this way, every time a liberal posts something bad about Trump or the Republicans we are proven right. And every time a conservatives posts bad about Obama or the Democrats we are proven right. Is it really our fault that the entire political system is a hot mess? We are just here to point out the ever growing hypocrisy. I haven't seen anyone say they have all the answers, no one does but no amount of polishing those two turds is going to win anyone over.
