    Over heating firewood processor

    Were you just splitting, or cutting as well? I've noticed the oil temp go up when just using it as a splitter.

    Rayco drive problems and finger teeth coming lose

    In front of the engine is a white plastic reservoir. Unscrew the top and see if any oil is in there. From my experience they don't need much so as long as you can see some it should work. Check the cable is moving the lever fully when you push it for forwards and backwards.

    Rayco drive problems and finger teeth coming lose

    I think the drive setup is hydrostatic and similar to Danequip grinder. There may be a small drive belt that is stretched or delaminating under the side cover? I would definitely consider changing to green teeth set up. So much easier than finger teeth.

    Land rover led indicators

    Don't use those horrible scotchlock connectors though. Solder and heat shrink [emoji1360]
  7. There will be a date stamp inside the helmet somewhere. I think most helmets are 5 years, petzl say 10 years, but I know some who change their helmets every 2-3 years. If it gets dropped or suffers an impact it should be binned...

    Tree ident please

    Maple. Seeds are at 180 degree angle Looks more like field maple than Norway maple though.

    Tree ident please

    The seeds are about 90 degrees to each other so Sycamore rather than Maple.

    Picus tester in Surrey area

    Hi David, Yes and yes, but the furor for body was coming out at the base of a large old pruning wound. This is the tomograph, quite contained at the moment.
