  1. PS im in south Cumbria so needs to be Currier'd or within 100 miles ish of Junction 36 M6
  2. Hi all, does anybody have any well seasoned / preferably kiln dried oak boards available or got any contacts for people who do. I require enough to make a table 1.2m / 4ft wide after jointing and need to be a descent 3.4 / 3.6m long (10 feet) preferably English oak but if i have to buy European any descent stockist would be appreciated (though would rather support British) Regards, John
  3. Ok bud. I'll make time next evening or so.
  4. Can I pay my dude's now and fill in profile when I get chance?
  5. I am in a similar predicament to Squaredy i have wide logs to mill. I do also have a wide chainsaw mill. i would be interested in a cost to be bale to cut a slab 1000mm and 1200mm if he can do that wide. Regards, John
  6. Hi BigJ, I would be interested in getting a price for scaled up wide cut sawmill from TCF please.
  7. Have you had a look at Hud-son sawmills? iv had a few de-barker's from them and they were really helpful and posted to uk no problem. a few years ago i asked them about shipping to uk and they said it would not be a problem to give a cost for it, but never took it any further. i like the look of them, the band wheels are a bit bigger diameter which i think will be less stress on the bands.#https://www.hud-son.com/product/oscar-52-portable-sawmill/ the next size up mill is a big jump in cost though.
  8. Same old question, I have the chance of buying a large oak log in photos below. It is 32 feet long and starts at 42 inches wide and by the first 8ft tapers to 34" wide then the remaining 24 feet remain at 34" wide. There is a bit of rot in the end, and a few sections where large limbs have been. It's been dead standing for years. As usual i want to offer a fair price for both myself and the land owner. Ps, out of interest if it was cut into 8 10 or 12 feet sections at 34" wide what will each size weigh roughly? Thanks for anyone's time who replys.
  9. I would be in, thank you for the consideration. though i a lot of the time i would probably direct my customers to the site as i dont have enough time to mill my own timber!!!!! defiantly a great shout. if nobody has a problem discussing it openly i would be interested what people charge for say cutting large longs 1200mm+ with a double headed chainsaw mill. its a 2 man job, machinery is generally needed to move slabs etc. the ones we have done in the past have either been really local to my existing jobs and machinery or we have actually tied milling a tree with some landscaping etc. Regards, John
