Today's milling

Recommended Posts

You don't need two identical powerheads - I used to run a 660 & 440 in tandem successfully 

Double headed milling is fine if both powerheads run at similar rpm.

Had a bit of a sinking feeling when we spotted something shiny in a board....

 

 

Then the relief when you find it's just a shotgun pellet

Not according to Rob D.

Different opinion.
He's probably right though.
I'm sticking to one powerhead and hyperskip chain

It's not so much a difference of opinion but rather a difference in preference, there may be a number of good reasons for preferring one power head, simplicity and capital cost being a couple.

 

We had a thread a while back on whether one could run different power heads at each end but in essence it's similar to pushing a broken down car, you may be big and beefy and able to exert  a force of double what an 8 stone weakling can but would you turn down their offer of help. as you will both be working at the same speed because the car won't move any faster even though you may be doing double his work he is still contributing a third of the total.

From an Oak (full of nails) to a worktop (full of nails) but it fits nice.
 

Just need to sand and polish and fill in the gaps.

Yeah the wide angle does make that log look bigger than it is. I think it was only 37inches in diameter from what I remember.

 

Plus the messy guide bar marks are from a smaller saw as the chain on the bigger saw got chewed up by all the nails so that makes the stem look bigger too.
