  1. Bugger, couldn't get much further from you.
  2. Are the solar kilns any good? I don't have electricity at the yard.
  3. Cnc machine would probably be best for that.
  4. I'm also very interested in this Saul
  5. Great first attempt and the main thing is that you enjoyed doing it. Now go make another 200 and you'll notice each one gets better and quicker to make [emoji1]. Once you start aiming for realism, use good quality reference photos and really study their form, rather than try and copy other carvers versions. Otherwise you may unwittingly copy their mistakes [emoji106]
  6. This is the size of an r7 tip bar. You may also want to have a look at Manpatools angle grinder attachments. The multi cutter and the smaller belt cutter would be much more precise and safer than the lancelot [emoji106]
  7. I don't really understand what you mean by "there's simply no chainsaw in the world that'd do this an 8" bar on a 2511t would still be FAR too-blunt a tool for the precision required here" Are you saying the work you do would blunt the chain or do you mean the tip of the bar would be too big/clumsy? If the former what's the issue with sharpening the chain? If the latter, the lancelot is a 4"disc, how can that be more precise than even a standard chainsaw setup. What I am suggesting is to use a carving bar, so either a dime tip on 1/4. 50 chain or better still an R7 tip with 1/4 0.43 guage chain, which is about the size of your finger tip.
  8. Please, please, please don't biomass it. Can you send me details?
  9. Not sure yet Gary, just putting feelers out[emoji1]
  10. May have a potential dining table & bench commission and looking for contacts for either buying kiln dried slabs or getting mine kilned. I'm Liverpool way, anyone nearby?
  11. Yeah what Bob said[emoji16] Like the side of a coin in this case. [emoji106]
  12. Thanks, both quite different from each other [emoji106]
