Trimmed free hand with a 661 36"
Bit of an arse about, slipping on the iced logs.
Bigger mill?????

Looking to go 180cm cannon bar and build a mill to match.
Seriously considering skip chain or granberg ripping chain for it too.
Bit worried about bar sag

Probably build my own mill though.

Cheers Yorkshire B,
This is exactly what I meant about moving big timber.
If I could get 8x300kg of these slabs (2.4t) in a 3.5t trailer...

Cut the last few slabs off the big cant this morning IMG_3633.jpg

Dude,  those are mental.  Such pretty planks. 

 

Only photo from today,  I didn't bother with any pictures during the snow or hail,  which is a pity.  It really adds to the atmosphere.

The Disco is earning its corn
Like you say, dragging that lot about, fuel economy is pretty irrelevant!
Great to be working in such fabulous scenery. There’s some wonderful wilderness North o’the border
