Just got a new laser in the workshop. Didn't realise it was so big and there isn't room to operate my sauno kiln. Unfortunately it's very heavy and as I don't have any means of moving it, I am having to break it up.

In the new year I will be listing my ms880 and two 50 inch bars along with my Alaskan mill rails for a 50 inch set up and a few chains.

Another reason for stopping milling is that I am having to do it on my own now as my logging mate had a heart attack a few years ago and rarely has the time to do any milling. 

I got into Alaskan milling back in 2000 and having done in now for 20 years, at the age of 57, I have to be a bit more careful of things like my back.

Hi Mark 

The bed is 1.6m by 1m and it has twin lasers Of 125 each. It can cut half inch acrylic no problem. The offer that was made to me was a no brainer so the kiln has to go. It will take a few days to set up but it's quite exciting to be able to do much more with it.

The actual kiln itself I am in the middle of breaking up as there is no way of getting it out the workshop as the laser is nearly 2 meters wide and in front of the double doors. The Sauno kiln mechanism I will sell. I have done quite a few loads over the 10 years or so I have made the kiln. 

I built a frame which I then lined with 6mm plywood and then fibre glassed the insides to make it moisture resistant. I used 3 inch celotex for insulation and then used 10mm sterling board to cover it all. I could kd 8 feet long boards up to 36 inches wide. I made it the maximum cubic footage that is recommended by Sauno, I will dig out the exact details later.
