Recommended Posts

dexta   

Anybody doing any milling near or around Newmarket and would like a hand for a couple of hours. I'am thinking of getting a mill and would like to see some being done to get some idea of the best set up. I have got a 660 and was thinking of getting a 30" Alaskan mill. Thanks

Not sure if you're all done with this (been away on hols for a couple of weeks) but I've got a decent sized oak to do in Great Abington (A11/A505) shortly. 3ft dia at the fat end, with a sharp taper x 20ft long. I'll be breaking it down into cants I can trailer away. If you fancy this one then drop me a pm - It will probably be the 076/48" bar mostly, but if you want to try the 066/36" bar too then I could bring it along for comparison.

 

20ft lengths are always interesting to do - getting it all levelled to best effect. I've also been playing with my new toy - precision chain grinder from Rob D - so want to see how much faster the chain performs.
