  1. Drying corsican pine

    Has anyone got any suggestions on how to dry this without it discolouring and mould forming. We have tried outside and in well a vented shed. Today we learnt that even the timber we had pressure treated has mould forming on it. We have the problem with both winter and summer felled timber.

  2. Woodmizer lt30 price

    I have had my 1992 Woodmizer Lt40 for over 10 years. It still cuts very well and is an excellent machine.

  4. Mobile Saw Mill for Oak Tree in back garden

    I could help but I think there will be others who are closer to you. It sounds like a job for a Lucas mill. If you find you do not have a enough timber for your project ,we can supply pine milled in woodland near Welwyn. John

  7. Fransgard winch dismantle

    Well I got the shaft out with a bit of heat. This old winch has been much abused. There is hardly a bit of metal on it that hasn't been bent or welded. So I was not too surprised to find the shaft was visibly bent. I turned a new shaft and the new coupling arm arrived this morning. It is now all back together and I look forward to getting it back in the woods to try it out. I bought the winch from Chef fins auctions as an unsold lot for under £300. I think it will do me well.

  8. Fransgard winch dismantle

    Quick update. I took the cable off and the winch now sits outside my workshop. So far the center shaft is refusing to move. I made up a pusher but no luck yet. I need to get some more gas and will try heat at the weekend. Sent from my GT-I9505 using Arbtalk mobile app

    Yes that's right. The pine is dreadful stuff to get dry without discolouring. Sent from my GT-I9505 using Arbtalk mobile app

    These are milled from Jeremy 's Woods near Welwyn. He has an order for posts and bollards. They will go off to be pressure treated nearby. I am in my caravan in Llandovery woods. I drive back tomorrow with the Woodmizer in tow. Johm Sent from my GT-I9505 using Arbtalk mobile app
