  2. Hi I have just got myself a used woodland mill hm130 after replacing some nylon bushes it’s cutting nice with a ripper 37 ,the paint is peeling but hey it don’t affect it’s cutting,Chris Pierce who imports them is a sound bloke ,so yeah I am super chuffed with my woodland mill,where are you if you are anywhere near Dorset you are totally welcome to come to my yard and have a look at my mill no worries,good luck with whatever you get but be warned milling is just like crack it’s addictive, I already want a bigger mill . Cheers Mark
  3. Hi guys I might have this wrong but I have been chainsaw milling for a good few yrs now and surely fast chainsaw milling at 63 inches isn’t a thing ,don’t you just let the saw cut as fast as it’s happy to do nice and easy no over stressing the saw get a good finish is surely better than getting it done as fast as possible Cheers Mark

Nice Brown Oak ,I have just made a big dining table and 2 benches out of brown oak , but I can’t post any pictures of it yet as it’s for a fellow arbtalker that hasn’t seen it yet and I don’t want to spoil the surprise ,brown oak is bloody expensive as I just found out but is nice to work and looks ace.
