    New 880

    Hi guys , as you all know I had a break in at my workshop and had my 880 stolen , well I have had a massive bit of luck a charity that helped me when I had my accident a year ago have helped me again and only gone a paid for a new 880 for me so chuffed , so my question is should I run it in with some cross cutting on like half Rev like it says in the book or just run it like a smaller saw and just rev it up from the start

    Arblease how it works

    Hi guys the arblease guys are totaly helpfull I have been talking to them about a woodland mill , Iave no credit rating as I have never had a bank loan , mortgage store card or any credit at all and they seemed to think that wouldn’t be a problem , it will cost a bit in interest though £800 on 3 grand but if you ain’t got 3grand then hey . Good luck Cheers Mark

    Night security at yards/lock-ups

    Hi get yourself a bus or horse box and convert it , me and my girlfriend and her daughter lived in a converted coach for yrs , had a Rayburn for heat and the best apple crumble ever , lived in a converted lorry and was night watchman for an industrial est in Cambridge, as long as you have tax and mot you can park anywhere , talk to farmers one might let you park on their land in exchange for some tree work , but if you do get lucky like that keep it quiet , best of luck , we have been thinking about getting a removals lorry to convert , check out Tiny House Movement Cheers Mark
