    New replacement 4x4 pickup

    I thought for a while that the electric technology was not quite there. Then a customer took me out in his P100D as he knew I like cars. To about 80ish mph it makes every supercar i've been in or driven feel slow and painful. The torque, smoothness and traction are incredible. Okay, it runs out of legs at 80-100 but in normal driving conditions they are fantastic. Even against the slowest Tesla on slow mode with cold batteries I suspect your Audi would have no chance. I would jump at the chance to run one as a work van/truck/pickup.

    Wellingtonia felled by idiots!

    I see what you mean now. Is there any point in pushing for a case to be heard at Crown Court then if Magistrates can bosh out a fine of their choosing?

    Rescue from a single line

    id say using existing rigging gear to lower a casualty could be a quick and effective method, would need to back up the capstan with a fail safe prussic or the like. probably not best practice could work in the right circumstance id say.

    3mt Log splitter

    I would tend to agree with you ,but I find that once the wood has gone through the processor it looks ok and the advantages of the cone splitter, outweigh the wood looking a bit messy /splintered/frayed. I admit I do get a bit more wastage if some cordwood is particularly splintered. But we are all individuals and so what may be acceptable to one is not acceptable to another.

    Troublesome Ms261

    Right - 120PSI is well below the 150+ I would expect. Check the gauge out on a working saw and see what it pulls. Hones - Damn, been doing it wrong for years, I need to recall hundreds of machines.....bollocks!!! The stones are better in closed transfer cylinders but do the job in my limited experience I have recently had a failure in a similar way, my diagnosis was that the bottom ring had seized and the top ring had stayed loose and continuing to run the saw had put a very slight cavity up the bore where the stuck ring had taken microns off the bore in one specific area. My fix was a new P&C kit and it worked. I could see from the new piston that the rings were not worn in one small area, inspection of this area showed the hone had missed this part of the bore due to this vertical channel of wear.
  13. Fitted 2 of the lamps as reverse lights on a van, much better, can see now

    non protective climbing boots

    Reguarding the Salewa and the La Sportiva boots, how do they hold up as regular walking boots? Both look like a good option for reccy climbing but I couldn’t justify that sort of money if they weren’t up to much for hiking/mountain walking. Comfort and durability mostly

    How long is too long for mill trailer

    Not really, it looks like cheap shite pressed sheet steel bolted together to build a frame. I don’t know what brakes etc it has and I’m not sure it has type approval either. Might be alright for the odd 10’ log but I’d want to keep the full length of my milk capacity. It would be more agro to build a kit of parts than a proper welded steel chassis for me. The easiest way would just be loaded on my 16’ flat trailer but I’d rather something purpose built.

    Logosol M8 Chainsaw Mill

    Time Left: 29 days and 19 hours

    • FOR SALE
    • USED

    Logosol M8 chainsaw mill (see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F2lmY8GITuQ), complete with saw carriage, log loading ramps, heavy duty log clamps, log end supports and various spares. Listed price is a little over 1/2 the brand new price. Will cut logs up to 5m long, 500mm diameter and 500kg. It can also cut larger logs when used inverted (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kOpTj3ecdtI), which I have done. I have had it 2 years and built a huge porch and log shed from larch. It is in very good condition and is normally used with a Stihl 660 saw or equivalent. I use a Stihl 880 (also available). For sale as I'm doing more sawing and have upgraded to a bandsaw mill. I know I'm a long way from a lot of you, but I have a daughter in Bristol, so I could deliver it south. Call me on 07879 835309 or email steve.s.mccoll@gmail.com if I can help with any questions. Cheers. Steve
