You know someone has some great kit when the hate 6" for being slow. Can't think of anything better myself

Haha, I hate the stuff with a passion. They constantly go sideways in the splitting chamber, it's a lot more cutting and it takes more to make a load.

Oak all day. Big bits for milling, rest is firewood & charcoal. I do love playing with a big hardwood😁

Long time no see on here. Hows the Rocket Stove kiln going?

I've been cutting 6inch logs which I hate because it's so slow, luckily some nice ash made things better.

Do you normally keep a borrow under the screener? I used to just tipped the screenings to naturally decay but given the timber prices now I'm thinking of keeping it and screening into a mesh lined IBC and using myself.

We net the tidier bits for kindling then tip the rest.

That picture has a lot in because I was using the 12way splitter but there's normally less so not a big issue.

Contract splitting for one of the estates. Large diameter Eucalyptus has been testing the splitter.
