    Any new small charcoal retorts out there?

    Looks like a very good conversion rate. By volume what do expect to get from a ring kiln?

    Wanted AEC matador spares

    The set I did was early 1970s, the linings fom memory had a fair taper so going the bonded route was not really an option, been out of that industry for 10 years now, so just dont know what the current state of play would be. Dependng on roughly where you are I might be able to recommend someone if needed, A

    Any new small charcoal retorts out there?

    All kilns emptied, graded & bagged. Been working on making a few new products from my charcoal recently. Have soap, eye liner & toothpaste, & now that I've emptied the kilns I need at least two of them followed by beer, though off for a surf first!🏄‍♀️🍻

    Cleaning sticky sap

    I would just stick it through some oak. Or if it's going to be a while before next use another it in bar oil and this may stop the sap setting rock hard

    TPO Application time......

    I spoke with the TO and their opinion was that "they hope to get it done in 8 weeks." I thought it was a statutory duty to do within 8 weeks and when I mentioned this the reply was "you can appeal for non-determination" and then he hung up on me....

    TPO Application time......

    As Gary has indicated, phone the council let them know of the date the council received it; provided they didn't ask for extra information you may be able to persuade them to back date it. The old planning portal (now privatised) used to have a clear statement that councils had to work from the date of receipt.....I haven't been able to find it recently. It was useful to remind councils of the correct procedure.
  22. Jon Heuch

    TPO Application time......

    I put in applications all over the country...…..& they even have the check to say that your application may be delayed if the notices don't get put up...…..it's not too bad if there is a houseowner resident in the house with an interest in the decision - it can be done...….but it might require printing out and sending in the post with appropriate pins/ties. But in other locations, it has to be ignored!
  23. Jon Heuch

    Confirmed TPO

    The regulations 12 (1)(a) and 12(1)(b) use the phrase "under an order"; the required register is not just a list of tree work applications. Clearly 99% of people are only interested in trees on their or their clients property and being able to search by property is essential.....but with larger & older orders covering multiple properties, especially where there is a dispute, it's highly desirable to look at the management of the order as a whole & in the round.....if the council has allowed trees to be felled as part of the order but is not allowing my tree to be felled there is an argument to be made that there is inconsistency and unfairness involved...…..but arboriculture on the whole is stuck in the management of individual trees or small groups of trees so it's clear why this type of issue hasn't been raised much in the past. Before 2012 for older orders the register (and remember this requirement was described in the order, not in the regulations) had to include all details of compensation paid. It would have been an interesting exercise to collate just how much councils had paid up......but I doubt any councils kept that record for public viewing.....no-one asked for the information....& it's not required any more so it will be a difficult exercise to drag out of any councils in the future.....I have seen a few FoI requests for this type of info & there are various reasons why it can be withheld.

    Easy done, going to the wrong park entirely.

    Collecting logs

    I used to use electric when loading the mill but now I use a hand winch, I find I've got better control and as the logs are being rolled on not pulled there's very little effort needed.
