  3. Hi I have had one of those grinders for yrs and yrs my mate gave it to me and even though I dont use it that often if I hit a nail or the ground cutting fire wood its ace for bringing all the cutters back the same as they all need to be the same length but I do find the granberg 12v sharpener the best as it will do both cutters and rakers and you can run it from your truck battery ,do do like the Lidl one though. Cheers Mark
  4. So got my big thicknesser working the rise and fall still aint sorted but I can do up to almost 3 inch thick ,the Poolewood people were sound and are taking that crappy little one back so still looking for a bargin of a planner thicknesser if anyone spots one Cheers Mark
  5. If it was a bit better made and those legs were on some sort of ratchet system it would be an ok bit of kit but as is would more than likely break ,Panther Mill for a chainsaw mill thats what I would get if I needed to replace my Alaskan .

  8. Hi so having no luck in finding a good old 10/12 inch planner thicknesser I rang round and got a Fox 10 inch from Poolewood who said it was a good machine but as soon as I got it out of the box I thought F##k so the parallel fence is bent and moves when you slide like a 2x1 along it I will be giving Poolewood a call in the morning ,I just wanted to warn you all not to buy one it looks like a toy . Cheers. Mark
