  1. Nice hoping people would say Danish as I have a tin of it already Ta Arran
  2. Milled some Red Oak with the alaskan and then got it ripped down into boards/ beams. I am going to make it into a mantle just curious to what I should varnish/ seal it with it.. Ta Arran
  3. Interesting read guys.. ta.. I'm in NZ 390 and 395 are still on the shelves.. not needing it for my big saw got an 880.. will only ever be a 25inch bar on the husky.. just wanted to make sure I wasn't losing out to much if I went 390 over 395.. my 385 is nice but it is old and will be a solid back up saw..
  4. Anyone used both and got a comparison? Not just in power but reliability etc etc.. Want a new falling saw and I already own an old 385xp so a 390xp would be logical as are the same saw but interested if the larger saw makes a difference.. Ta Arran
  5. I'm semi chisel for everything.. once ya knock that square edge off a full chisel chain its a right pain..
  6. Are the huskys just front handle heated or rear handle heated aswell been years since I used one.. ta Arran
  7. You will be all good.. Rock climbing helps same muscles just different application.. just be hungry to work and learn
  8. Pull ups press up sit ups and squats.. and stretching.. do everything in the morning.. don't fancy it nor have the time after work !!
  9. Use these.. very good and bang them with a sledge hammer and they are holding up well.. they stack well too
  10. Ye it's a good country.. suits the outdoors person.. going from Essex to rural NZ it's such a different world..
  11. Was a good day she was a tight fell.. hope your keeping well
  12. Been a while since I've posted anything decent on here.. Spent the early days on here asking heaps of questions and networking when I was subbing in the UK.. Been in NZ just over 5 years.. good country best move I ever made.. NZ resident.. bought a house.. got a good kiwi girlfriend.. good job.. the list goes on.. Glad I travelled off the back of Arb and would recommend it to anyone it puts a hell of a perspective on life.. or even just step outside your comfort zone.. does wonders.. Arran
  13. I use a 6m lanyard with a positioner and use it for up and down when nessasary.. I don't see why you shouldn't
