Did the first bit of milling yesterday after health scare of 2 weeks ago.

2 sections of a nice Sweet Chestnut stem that had been lying around for a year or so.

Fair bit of rot in the centre but still worth the effort.

Must of missed that, alls well I trust

No you didn't miss it, I didn't share it.

Not a great one for airing my ailments in public.

Heart related, bit of a wake up call to remind me I'm not immortal!

 

Just as well I change from chainsaw milling to bandsaw milling last year.

Hello FTF.

 

Hope you are doing well after your scare! I've been there myself so know the feeling!

 

I'm interested in a woodlands mill for personal use in Scotland. Tell me, how are you finding it now some time has passed? Any issues? Any breakdowns? How many blades do you find yourself using and do you buy them from woodland mills? 

 

Lastly, have you bought a second mill? Your earlier posts and photos show a 126 model but now looks like you have a 130? Or am I confused?

 

thabks for any info.

 

best wishes,

 

john

My mistake. Someone hijacked your 'its arrived' post with pics of their 126 model and I thought it was your purchase.

 

any info you can give on the 130 much appreciated!

Did you get a 130 in the end John? Im just up the road from you in Forfar and it looks like Im away to pull the trigger on a 130 Woodlander XL.

 

Do you do milling work for customers or just yourself?

Only just seen this and I suppose by now you've bought your mill.

For the record I don't buy blades from woodlands but use ripper37 instead.

I had problems fitting the ones supplied by woodlands, no such problems with the the ripper37, old band off new one on with no need to alter the tracking.
