  1. Another sunny day in Wales[emoji2]
  2. John Hughes Woodmizer lt40 Lucas 8 /25 swing mill. Based near Dunmow Essex
  3. It is a MT8 35 HP . The trailer is a Negrisola, Italian made I think. John
  4. I haven't posted a photo of my baby Zetor lately.
  5. Thanks for the link, I have ordered some. Do you spray it on? Down here in the sunny south I have no problems with any timber except the Corsican pine. The only way I can get it to dry without mold is to stand it up in the full sun.
  6. Is wykabor the most cost effective way of stopping mold and staining occuring on freshly milled Corsican pine. Where is the best source. I am not keen on using it as some of the timber will be planed when dry. We are really struggling to stop it going moldy. Thanks John
  7. I have used Uni Power of GT Dunmow. I have always found them helpful.
  8. Has anyone got any suggestions on how to dry this without it discolouring and mould forming. We have tried outside and in well a vented shed. Today we learnt that even the timber we had pressure treated has mould forming on it. We have the problem with both winter and summer felled timber.

  9. I have had my 1992 Woodmizer Lt40 for over 10 years. It still cuts very well and is an excellent machine.

  11. I could help but I think there will be others who are closer to you. It sounds like a job for a Lucas mill. If you find you do not have a enough timber for your project ,we can supply pine milled in woodland near Welwyn. John

  14. Well I got the shaft out with a bit of heat. This old winch has been much abused. There is hardly a bit of metal on it that hasn't been bent or welded. So I was not too surprised to find the shaft was visibly bent. I turned a new shaft and the new coupling arm arrived this morning. It is now all back together and I look forward to getting it back in the woods to try it out. I bought the winch from Chef fins auctions as an unsold lot for under £300. I think it will do me well.
