Guess the Weight, Thanksgiving Quiz!

Recommended Posts

Slab of Elm

 

Andrew.                                504 kg

Spruce Pirate.                      153  kg

Woodworks.                          299 kg

AJStrees.                               240 kg.   (300)

Topchippyles.                        220 kg

Trigger Andy.                          235 kg.   (270)

Dave at Dave.                         375 kg

Puffing Billy                             380-400 kg

Timm                                        295-310 kg

Muttley.                                    345 kg

Mark J.                                     425 kg

Spud dog.                                 376 kg

Treerover.                                  160.2 kg

Mr Ed.                                         275 kg

Conor Wright.                            272 kg

Squaredy.                                   371 kg

Monkey Business.                     356 kg

Organic Guy.                              292 kg

Josh Purton.                               346 kg

Bike User.                                    256 kg

Dumper.                                       306 kg

Wonky.                        
 

Well it looks as though Conor Wright is the closest at 272 kg as the scales say 296 kg less the 25 kg Wiltec grab equals 271 kg.  So only one kg out!

Hats off to Mr Ed for 275 kg

Quite a few not far away

Trigger Andy said he would not be surprised at 270kg which is lucky for me as it would either have to be half a mug or two mugs!

 

Did not quite have the centre of gravity right when lifting but it does give a wonderful dappled effect on the slab which is not the grain!

 

So perhaps Conor can give us all a talk on chainsaws as a punishment for winning!

What has he learned about them, what makes does he prefer, how does he sharpen them, and any advice he would give to a beginner .

 

So if you can pm your address Conor I will see if they have any mugs left or if they have all been bought by Arbtalkers!

Wow, that is light. I was going to guess 370kg, which already made an allowance for it being a bit dead. Had it been fresh felled elm from Edinburgh, it would have been well over 400kg.

If the scales are accurate, and the dimensions given correct, then that is almost a fully dry piece of Elm.  Good fun, let's have some more!
