Today's milling

Recommended Posts

So I finally got the 881 and the 74" bar into some photo worthy wood (Beech)! 6m long and 78" wide at the biggest point so I spent ages trimming. Overall a good day. Got a good amount of boards out of it, they all came out flat and the customer was very happy 👌IMG-20210506-WA0038.thumb.jpg.036a89329a52ccc6c3f1670e1bb8897e.jpgIMG-20210506-WA0019.thumb.jpg.507bd706b3bb45335f62203ef39cea86.jpgIMG-20210506-WA0010.thumb.jpg.ce7c2828466d3b69e36b3df7a515f2e3.jpgDSC_0502.thumb.JPG.bbf8f27bd0be622352c1ce82271007ee.JPGDSC_0503.thumb.JPG.a27e2f5369a9d866e2f785113e1239d5.JPGDSC_0505.thumb.JPG.580d90043e8c44c2ab33e2836f88bb07.JPGDSC_0506.thumb.JPG.36fd4b5cec5edeb5c53bd87eb963f748.JPG

Big piece of Ash today from a job back in November.

Unfortunately there was only minor Olive wood which I was surprised about and a bit gutted.

Even the bottom trunk section had minimal amount 🙄

1200 at the widest spot and 1380 long by 80 thick.

Bike shed. Might have enough for the doors810f73af28a7b7c2ea677f3c20dbd3a1.jpg

Nice, do you make cladding with the band saw? Can you? Have you made the whole bike shed from timber you milled? Might be silly questions. Haven't used a bandsaw mill, so wouldn't know. But at some stage later in life, I'm sure I will be investing in one (maybe in the next year or so...).

Once you have used a bandsaw mill you will soon want one.

Hard to tell because I've not milled with an 880! For cutting though the 881 feels like a chainsaw. I don't know what's different, maybe just the shape? But it feels like a big chainsaw as opposed to a big lump with a bar. It feels nice with a 30" bar on. 

 

As far as milling goes it runs a treat. I was using a hyper skip chain for the first 2 chains and that was nice! I had to change to a skip chain afterwards and it was hard going. The saw was pulling itself into the cut and bogging so I fought it the whole way. Hyperskip is definitely a winner!

I tend to stick with the milling packs Rob D sells for chains and bars. Need to spend a bit more time looking at his videos explaining all the different options.
