  1. we had a Isuzu and it was a great little truck,bouncy in the cab when unladen, but pulled like a demon when loaded, only had it a year until some lowlife nicked it never to be seen again.
  2. in fairness that is firewood quality oak, way too many unions/forks etc, but,,for rustic furniture/park furniture etc ,will do the job,

  8. No problems Pete,always nice to help other out, nice to meet you👍🌲👍
  9. I agree with squaredy , I’ve milled a lot of cedar with my team over the years, and it’s dried quite differently, opened Up. A tree I’d milled two yrs ago and struggled to get two decent planks,without shakes, but others dried perfectly, bit hit and miss so as above, in saying that,always looking for cedar ha ha

    I agree, there’s a high chance in large oak slabs cupping when dry, so I end up ripping them in half,which they then fit my 24 inch planner and rejoin with the domino jointer, eliviates the “ how do I get that flat” or hours of tedious routering in a sled.
  11. Exactly what. I use,for sanding,planing,anything really🌲👍
  12. Try “The tool post” in didcot, they do an electric one,you can custom make the brand with interchangeable heads.
