Twelve-Dollar Chocks

Yesterday, I made a set of the "twelve-dollar chocks" designed by ICE-BREAKER. Came in under budget too as I also had the wood and the nuts and washers. All I had to buy was the threaded rod for $9. Had to use the neighbor's drill press and he didn't charge me anything. Put 'em on the 19 and they work like a hot damn and the price is certainly right.

Thanks, Dave.

Doug

I'd love to send some but there must be a revised way to submit photos. I can't seem to get one to post. The old [img] option doesn't appear to work anymore.

Go Advanced ( at the bottom of the text block ). Click on the paperclip icon.
You will then be able to browse your computer and select the image (s). Once selected ( click open ), click on Upload. ( I think this is what people keep missing ). Wait for the "uploading" message to disappear ( you can then close the box ). At the bottom of the page, click on Preview Post so you can see what you have and you can then amend text ( add caption for instance ). Click submit post.

Doug, if you have your photos hosted on a site somewhere, you can still use the {img} tags. Just click on this icon and insert the link. In fact, that is what I just did to get that icon to show.

Jim, I did what you suggested using the link but I just got an "X" where the photo should have been.

OK, I'll ry this again........

Nope Glenn, that didn't work either. I'll keep playing with it until I get it to work.

By the way you can see the set built by ICE-BREAKER in the BAL-X Chocks thread. Mine don't quite as good as his .
