I think with a few extras and the trailer Im closer to £11k now. :( Still, done now. :D Been knocking out 4" Fence Posts today knackered, but in a good way. :D 

 

Also took the cupping out of a couple of Oak Boards that will be one of my daughters head and foot boards on a bed Im making her.

Hi Andy 

Be interested to see that progress. 

Planning on doing the same for one of my lads, Elm in my case. Oak seems bloody hard to come by up here. Still working away on finishing touches with the 130 but short on time as done some long ones so far this year.

Sure, hopefully wont get laughed out the park. :D Been looking at a few designs over the year and have a few idea's to play with. I like Elm, have a few really nice Burred Slabs drying just now.

 

I know what you mean about long trips. This year mine have all been under 3 weeks, just more than usual. I must be at 110 days already. :D What have you been doing to the 130? Any further with the hydraulic loader?

 

Im hopefully picking up some air dried 4" Oak Posts for the bed tomorrow, local lad with a Lumbermate. 2x 1400mm and 2 x 1000mm lengths. Said it would be £60-70. Seems reasonable to me, so maybe a good contact for Oak? I'll ask him tomorrow if he can get more Oak Saw Logs in for selling.

I’m sure no one will laugh bud anyway rustic rough is all in now so what the hell give it a go. Not got far with the hydraulics to tell truth, power unit and steel etc is here but no time to get on with it plus HMRC is turning me inside out which is making any time off pretty crap but hey ho. Made up some ramps and a winch set up as a temp solution. Swapped over to them ripper 37s recently, they seem to cut well and show good longevity. Every day is a learning day for sure with the mill. I’ll get a few pics up at some point.

HMRC are on your back? Eeeek, that cant be good?
