    Stunt fell pics

    On a biggish job to take out 28 decent Connie's. Lad from premier came past said they were shutting the road to do some lighting and more than happy for us to crack on. Just after lunch we realised they had blocked both ends of road. So managed to flop 4 out one after the other. Left my phone at home so only got vid from groundies phone. Pretty pleased with the time saving

    Pics of your milled products

    Looking good. Did you end up lapping them? Boards look good and tight together

    What's on your bench today?

    Yes I didn't think the throttle could be doing that. Will check it next time I have a minute

    What's on your bench today?

    A hateful bg55 blower. Wouldnt start after running fine. Had a fiddle today, was completely hydro locked when I looked at it. Cleaned that all out, cleaned carb, seemed ok, meter arm and needle not sticking, found loose engine mount bolt. Refitted. all back together. Ran for few seconds then cut out. Seems to be a lot of fuel knocking about. Throttle cable works but a bit coarse could it be just that sticking on slightly?

    Ah think it's good if you want to learn how to put a saw together. Personally I'd rather buy a spares or repair decent saw and spent time and money fixing that up so there is a chance you'll have something that will be long lasting, but each to their own.

    Wage! How much should the going rate be?

    Also depends a bit how often you work for them? Odd days here and there I would expect to charge more. Steady days every week might well be a bit less.... Good luck getting anyone to agree on subbies rates on here! Good Groundie with aerial rescue and a saw 100 to 125 quid a day. Good climber with plenty kit and saws 150 to 200 per day depending on how much a beast of a day it is. But you know it'll vary depending on where in country you are, what competition is and what people are used to paying.
