  1. Lightweight, no leads, super convenient, quicker than hand tools?, I'm not knocking battery at all, I think it 100% the way to go. Was just making the point (maybe badly) that year ago when I started you could just about get a drill/driver (and people knocked them) and now look at how good some of the kit is
  2. Totally. Battery definately the way for small stuff but petrol for cutting etc. Be intetesting to see what the next few years bring
  3. 25 years ago no-one thought battery drills/tool would be the way forward!
  4. I have a smart pusher for sale, it's handy bit of kit I just don't use it much and trying to rationalise what we have
  5. kav


    I'll ask the owner of them if I can borrow them and try and get some made up. Super handy
  6. Good website too-loads of info
  7. Thankyou, much appreciated👍👍
  8. If no-one else is keen I'm happy to travel from Oxford. Always nice to get out of the shire Thanks Kav
  9. 👍spot the hole where we had to did out a nail!!
  10. Bit of cedar and yew from earlier in the week, cut a load of funky stuff but was slack on the photos
  11. Yeah, shavehorse(s), clamp the wood with foot while shaping with a drawknife, good old technology still being used today
  12. Im guessing it was probally ment for timber-customer had them. I want a set!! Yes there are rollers on the hooks so chain evens out most of the time and it can be shorten down. Needs a swivel in the top hook ideally but really handy and saves sliding slabs
  13. Thanks, the big oak and cedar was lovely to cut! (and no slabbing😁)
  14. Awesome few days milling for 3dWood/Nick Speakman Sculpture. Cut a load of big Oak and Cedar plus a bit of Wellingtonia and some funky sycamore. So glad we had a forklift and also this super handy lifting chains!!
  15. Obvious stuff like tidy kit and unmarked truck, turn up when you say and graft but don't under sell yourself too cheap. Good luck
