  1. Thats an awesome rig Josh, well done
  2. When planting a tree into the same spot as a dead tree was removed the import thing is to know exactly what killed the previous tree, that way you can choose a tree which is less likely to become infected by the same pathogen. It seems thats out of the question in this case. Best thing is to hope the tree dies of natural causes. You should consider looking up known pathogens that affect Cedar tree though and cross reference with Walnut. In an ideal world it would be good to wait a year before planting in the same spot. Again, it seems like you are in a bit of a hurry though which I can understand. A good idea might be to grind the entire bed, and not just the spot where the stump is, making sure you remove all the roots and not just the main stump. Remove all the grindings, not just some of them. Add some compost into the top soil and hope for the best.
  3. Good post. Except the last bit. I tried that, but found its too easy to suddenly find yourself with a shortfall in the following tax quarter if you're not careful. Its easy to forget 20% of your money in the bank isn't yours. Suddenly getting hit with a 5k vat bill can quickly make your bank account look a little less attractive. Now I put 20% of all my income into a separate savings account. With the amount offset each quarter theres always money left in there after I pay my vat, and the savings account after 5 years is starting to look very healthy indeed.
  4. i'd be thinking about ditching the ocean polyester if I were you. Theres loads of better options for cord out there. I never could understand the hype over the stuff. It was well marketed and thats about it
  5. It is a shame, this site deserves more support
  6. Hi, did you go for the Dalen in the end? If so how is it going?
  7. How do you find the landrover Mewp for driving stability? I quite fancy one but have been put off through observing them on the roads. They were probably being driven too fast though to be fair
  8. you'll be using a splitter or chainsaw to cut it up if you don't hand split it when green. Horrible stuff. The annoying thing is when it drys it always cracks and splits all over the place so at a glance you image its going to split easily, then its like hitting a lump of concrete
  9. I sell all sorts to my customers. Its always dry, well seasoned timber, and they always come back. A good mix is best as you get the best of both worlds.
  10. You need the perfect wood for those machines. Its an impressive tool to watch working though although quite expensive I thoughts. I went for a japa in the end. Takes me about 1 hour and a half to make a 3 cube load in my transit
