  2. I tried this about 8/9 year ago, back then it would tell you winning bid price per tonne once auction had finished, and yes you guessed it the winning bid was all ways 50p 75p or a £1 a tonne more than i bid, i would sit there and look where the location of the timber was from me then work out haulage costs and come up with a final price per tonne, I never won a auction and last one i bid on i put a bid in at £5 a tonne over average cost and still got out bid, personally i think some of the big biomass co,s have it sawn up but you can all ways try, A harvesting co have done a smallish job (400 tonne) near me consisting of ash oak,beech sycamore birch etc all good processor sized firewood and its gone for chip at £42 a tonne, i would of gladly given £60 a tonne for it and as a firewood producer this is what we are up against,,

  5. Wordle 1,039 X/6 ⬜⬜⬜⬜🟨 ⬜⬜🟨⬜⬜ ⬜⬜🟨⬜🟨 🟨🟨⬜🟨🟩 ⬜🟩⬜🟩🟩 ⬜🟩⬜🟩🟩 That got away from me. A couple of days off and I seem to have become a dunce.
  6. I will have you know that my Mrs makes the best soy pumpkin spice iced white mocha. It really is quite exquisite.
  7. I bought one of these TMech grinders as a catalog return on eBay for £850. I sharpened the teeth a few times but never felt they were good, and cost for a new set is enough to pay for green teeth and holders so bit the bullet. Pairs of holes between teeth were about 1mm too close to just drill out, so had to set the wheel up on the mill and slot drill at 16mm. It has 3 pairs of teeth, 2 left, 2 right and 2 straight. I worried it would vibrate due to having fewer teeth, but in fact it's much smoother as sharp teeth cut rather than beat at the stump. Very pleased with the upgrade. I have had to mend the brake lever, the exhaust fell off so welded, normal stump grinder stuff.
  8. It's good money I know but customer wants it done quickly as possible hence the 4 men and don't have a digger I'd love one but belive it or not still can't afford one I hire them as don't get many jobs like this that often
  9. https://crestresearch.ac.uk/download/4179/report_extreme_right_wing_terrorism_in_the_uk_22-052-01-1.pdf There has indeed been a lot of time and money put into pushing the extreme right wing threat narrative, there have also been isolated incidents the most deadly with 3 fatalities dating back to 2000 if I recall correctly. Now factor that against the following and what would any impartial observer see as the biggest threat??. Those prone to lying and making false statement’s would be as well not replying as far as I’m concerned.
  10. Also interested in peoples opinions on this jacket. Thinking of getting one as well
  11. If the fitted cylinder is OEM and not too bad, I would always try to salvage it and fit a decent quality aftermarket piston if one is available. Take note of Stubbys advice, no point fitting new parts until a vac/pressure check is done and the fuel system is checked out and adjusted correctly after fitting the new parts so the saw isn't over revving.
  12. Might have told this story but.... Back in the 80's, a Lebanese came over in the garden of a local vicarage. I deal was done and it was mine. I lived in an ex council terrace but planned eventually to get a bigger house. I took the usable lengths to the sawmill at Whatton Hall and Sid, Keith and myself discussed the butt's with Nog, the local carpenter. There was enough to get a decent sized table and church pew type seat so we set about the job and the Robinson Reciprocating Saw rumbled into life with the slapping of all the endless belts. The grain and smell were fantastic! The smell of Cedar and the purple through to orange and yellow pippy grain were excellent! The finished lengths of different sizes and widths were stacked to air dry in a lorry body to dry! The container was also workshop/store/bait room and always smelt good! Every year I used to empty the stock, turn or adjust the stack to get an even drying......Several years went buy and eventually I had a 24'x12' kitchen and I saved up Nog's fee. That summer, some b@stard set off some fireworks and one shot under the glassonite lorry body and burnt the lot to the ground!!! The old use of Cedar was in the manufacture of furniture - drawer bottoms especially, so that your knicker drawer smelt sweet!
  13. Don’t drop the soap!!
  14. hi . We can help you. There will be an upgrade for it. We will need a machine serial number and the details of the engine. The 35 should be the Kubota 35hp engine so if you can confirm that it will help. This helps us to know what the upper and lower rev settings it would have had originally. You have the 108 tooth wheel I can see from your picture. Green Plant UK - 01483 235111 option 1 for parts.

  23. The roller I was talking about is the chain roller, not the mower roller.🙄
  24. Typical seizes are using old fuel oil mix where the oils lubrication has been degraded, lack of or no two stroke oil in the fuel, air leak or running lean. Running lean can also include split fuel lines, blocked fuel filters, blocked gauze strainers etc The piston crown damage is interesting. It is possible that someone has damaged it using a poor choice of piston stop or it has caved due to the heat. The damage looks like a bad case of pre ignition but that could only happen if the coil had developed a weird fault or the flywheel managed to shear it's key and stop a few degrees in advance. Never seen one that bad before.
