  1. Yes that looks very useful Rob, attached to a squared log is how I imagined it done[emoji106] I do like your table though, have you any footage on how the track sits along the table edge? Will the intersect come with the track? And have you an idea on price yet?
  2. Excellent, very interested in this[emoji106] Lol I must have switched the website to Chinese 🤣
  3. Rob, your website is in Chinese????
  4. Look forward to seeing this Rob
  5. Sorry, I’ve just watched it again and you didn’t mention anything of the sort, weird lol

    New Oregon EXL Chain - game changer?

    Hmm, yes both had equal chain stretch. That new chain looks more aggressive and about 2 seconds faster (second cut) than the standard chain in the second video [emoji106]
  7. That’s an excellent piece of kit Rob[emoji106] I watched the demo vid last week, I seem to remember you mentioning that it can be used to replank thicker boards or true up / plane seasoned boards. If this is possible, how exactly can this be done? I can’t see how the end brackets would attach to a thin board, unless you clamp the board somehow to another log your milling??

    Trailers help

    Thanks for the replies[emoji106] I’m still not sure haha but will look into down plating to 1800 to cover my back

    Trailers help

    I’m hoping for a definitive answer to this query. Current vehicle has a max towing weight of 1800kg. Is it an offence to tow a higher rated trailer, say 2000 or 2700kg but staying under 1800kg loaded? Obviously there’s a risk of going over weight with 2700 trailer but I’d sooner have a 2000kg than down size to 1600kg. 1800kg are hard to come by.

    Carving at the APF

    Thanks everyone, there were some incredible pieces, wouldn’t want to have judged it. The acorn was by Andy O’Neil titled “From seed to sawmill “[emoji106]

    You’ve not said how big the bear is going to be., or how long it will take you. I did this one in two days but stupidly didn’t account for cleanup ( I normally don’t clear up unless I have to). Needless to say I took a hit on the job and learned a valuable lesson lol.
