  1. I'm looking for a decent used Trakmet bandsaw. Ideally static and three phase. If anyone is thinking of selling please get in touch. Cheers. Tom. 07769676536. tomdutson@gmail.com
  2. We have a small farm-based sawmill in Cumbria. We made a kiln from a shipping container that is heated by our boiler. We also have small dehumidifier kiln. I'm happy to discuss further. Cheers. Tom. 07769676536. tomdutson@gmail.com
  3. We have a small farm-based sawmill in Cumbria and have a good stock of larch. We have hauliers available to move loads. Cheers. Tom. 07769676536. tomdutson@gmail.com.
  4. Could be Mike at http://sawmillsdevon.co.uk/
  5. Thanks for the recommendation. Tom.
  6. Thanks for your reply. Yes, that makes sense. Was the sea coal hand picked off the beach? Did it come in with certain tides from seams in the sea bed or was it spilled from mining extraction and transport?
  7. Hello. I've got a hitch cart that I bought second hand last year. I'm interested to hear from anyone who has experience of using one. It seems very heavy on the shafts with the axle being mounted right at the back and the whole thing being very robustly constructed from steel. My understanding is that there should be little or no downward pressure onto the back of the horse when pulling a cart with shafts. There is some scope for moving the axle forward but I don't think that this will significantly change the point of balance. Any thoughts on this would are welcomed. Cheers. Tom.
  8. We have a Lumbermate 2000 bandsaw that we use to mill a fair amount of larch cladding amongst other things. I get asked for shiplap and feather edged boarding from time to time but have not been set up to produce it. I believe that there are jigs available and I am looking to get a price for these. I would be interested to hear of any experiences or advice on how to best approach cutting these profiles with the fairly basic sawmill that we have. Thanks. Tom.
  9. Near Shap in Cumbria. Cheers. Tom.
  10. I have a Lumbermate 2000 that I use to mill a fair amount of waney and square edged larch cladding. I occasionally have enquiries about cutting feather edged boards but have not done any as the mill is not set up for it. Does anyone have any experience or suggestions for how to cost-effectively set up a jig for feather edge boarding please? I guess we would need to cut 12 foot boards to make it worthwhile. Thanks. Tom.
  11. I have a quantity of cherry logs available suitable for smoking. I'm not sure of the exact amount but my guess is around 10 tonnes. Some of the logs I plan to mill for timber with slab wood suitable for smoking and some will convert directly from round timber to smoking timber. I can prepare billets of 1m length and strap these into one cubic meter bundles or load loose billets into IBC cages for transport. I can also kiln dry if required and chip. Please get in touch if of interest. Tom. tomdutson@gmail.com
