    Sorry to hear about that, any cctv footage nearby that might be worth viewing? Not too many alaskans around.. some chance it may appear in the future, always worth checking carboot sales and shady markets in the area for a week or two. place a wanted ad for it? or maybe place a "we buy any saw" ad, the scumbags might be thick enough to ring you trying to off load it. Had a van cleaned out years back and its a horrible feeling. never got the stuff back but thats not to say you wont.

    Sounds worthwhile to me, not often you come across them that size. nothing ventured, nothing gained, seems like a bit too much effort on the trees behalf, growing for a century to turn into a couple of nights burning? As you're there anyway, why not mill it?

    Should be £15/night camping and £30 for 2-day entrance. Broadley got stung as well, apparently the website is a bit of a minefield.

    That’s a good size and worth milling. Hawthorn will make good carving wood, and will turn nicely too. It is pretty featureless though.

    Nah, I'm struggling with wankers cramp. Driving over there doesn't appeal much at the moment. Next time mate.

    A possible idea would be to quarter saw from forest grown, vertical trees. Or air dry the whole log slowly for a decade before cutting? [emoji848] Got any photos of the timber you're using? [emoji106]

    FB is ok for a company presence I hate it for everything else, I like Instagram as it’s pictures with a few words but again offers a presence. Arbtalk I love for its dry witted intimate humour, it’s as close to being in a pub as the internet will get. Not posted much recently as I have been super busy but do try to as much as possible when I can, whether I contribute anything or not.

    You can have whatever you want if you don’t have to justify it commercially, that’s why!

    Bid him on them quickly, before someone else buys them. Messing Bolam about is much better face to face.

    Over wintering chainsaws

    I never thought of that Gary, I think you might have a point about the wear and tear from cold. However in my case, my toys are for domestic use, if you're over-wintering tools then they arn't heavily used I guess and in this case some extra wear won't be the end of the world. But it was something I never thought about

    Nice one. There are so many out there like you said. I'll have a trawl through for the best deal for my circumstance. I'll be covering quite a few area codes so I may go with an 03 national style number.

    Timber Trailer and Crane Required

    Hi Kevin, I will help you by replying and getting your post back up in the 'today's posts' list. I also have a serious (and nosey) question, as an interested sawmill owner in your area. Why do Cardiff Council require such a large capacity machine? I understand the advantages of being able to pick up a large stem and hence the need for a large grab, but can't a large diameter tree be cross-cut to make it manageable? And surely a smaller setup is much easier to maneuver? Also are you really saying you want a trailer capacity of 14 tons? Giving a total trailer weight of around 22 tons and a train weight of maybe 30 tons???!!! I know plenty of timber trailers with a capacity of 8 or 9 tons which are available off-the-shelf but the size you are specifying is likely to bump the price up from maybe £15,000 to nearer £80,000. Hope you don't mind my observations.

    There are loads of companies that will give you a landline number you can divert to a landline. I have 3 local numbers with the area codes we work in they all direct to the mobile. The Pocket landline from EE costs me nothing due to an error when orange moved to EE. The other 2 are with Tamar and cost £15-£25 a month. https://www.tamartelecommunications.co.uk/

    Who is it with? Do you get any drop out in areas that don't have good mobile internet?

    Your probably right. I don't do facebook at all or any other social media, I do remember when arbtalk was busier, but still enjoy it as is ( excluding some tedious members who have almost gone away now) . Don't really have anything to compare to. Hpoc.co.uk seems alot slower than it used to be also. Fb sounds balls, from what I hear on here, although slagging off peoples boots does sound pretty tempting.
