As he shook the mill on the trailer with one hand he said 'that ain't going anywhere' as he tied the hivis on... Arbtalk approved 

The hivis was only on there for  when I had it on the 10ft trailer, honest😅

I did have to drill a 20mm hole in each corner of the frame last minute for easy straping down though 👍

Saved this small but lovely bit of cherry from a real nasty chipping job.

Just 2 60mm boards but really nice ones.

The set up of the mill on  girder frame, sat on the trailer makes it so quick to use, it took longer to take the tarp off the head than it did to mill it😅😅 I think I'll invest in a cover👍

Not a bad colour match! Slapped a first coat of paint on the frame this afternoon. I bought 9 tins of MF Industrial yellow at an auction a few weeks ago, 5 quid 😅😅  very handy.

Hopefully doing some milling on Sunday afternoon 👍

Hi I think it would be a fun thing to have the Woodland HM 130 alongside the Frontier and have a mill off they both look very similar ,and Will 127 you were lucky to get given that racking wish someone would give me some .

Yes it would be interesting to see them compared, I suspect that there wouldn't be much difference at all in milling output/quality, it would be in the little things that make the day go smoothly- ease of adjustments, servicing, cleaning out those irritating dust traps etc...

Yes, we were very lucky with that racking- they gave my mate a whole mezzanine floor too!! 😀

talking of dust Will, worth knocking the mesh cover out of the dust extract port 😁
