  1. I am having a hard time with photos since I got a new phone that I can't get the app on so bear with me as for prices how much would a 5.5mtr long 1 mtr wide and say inch and half thick of Oak cost so bearing in mind how rare this timber is I don't think £800 is expensive but hey ,so hopefully there are now some photos of the Black limba and Utile ,all I am trying to do do is put some of this stunning timber with makers who will make something cool with it ,help a friend and maybe make some cash
  2. So this is getting mad I do not have much paper work but my friend has been milling and importing African Hardwood for 40/50 yrs If anyone does buy any I will put my business name on anything you want most of this timber has been air dry in the same warehouse for 30yrs or more as you can see the import date printed on the stacks also my friend has supplied some quite prestigious places and even though I dont thi k I need to proove myself I will ask his permission to name a few ,sorry I didnt post any photos was just in a rush ,I will try and post some pics asap I hope this helps a bit Cheers Mark

  5. So very funny I knew I was in for some piss take when I wrote it but hey cookies ovals,platters whatever you want to call them whats the best way to secure the Log to the mill to cut on a 45%.
  6. So I want to have a go at cutting cookies but never have so I am guessing that I just ratchet strap my butt to the mill on like a 45% and just cut them ,is that how everyone else does it as always keen to hear your thoughts. Cheers Mark

  19. Hi so is there a calculation to turn cubic feet /meters into board feet in order to price a board if so someone please tell me . Thanks Mark
  20. Its the principal not the amount did we all agree to this No we didnt ,we dont get anything for our 40 quid its taking the Piss you can look up all sorts of my personal data at companies house no not happy we need a revolution a new way of doing things the one we have at the just aint that good
  21. Hi mate thats totally cool you should be chuffed amazing build ,what thickness ply did you use I have some void less ply for sale 4 and 6mm was used for jigsaw making PM me if interested , looking forward to seeing it with a seat if you have one what will you finish it with a lot of boat builders use West Systems Resin
  22. No on the website it says if you are using cctv to deter crime you must pay even if you have dash cam in work truck ,but there is a simple questionaire one thing I think it said was do you use peoples data but that could be anything a delivery address or where to take that tree down it all could be called data ,its a bloody Piss Take if you ask me
  23. If I take my time boards coming off the mill are quite good and by flipping the board every pass or 2 you can get a good result but looking for a surface planer /thicknesser we bought a 12inch fox machine dont bother it was a toy went strighgt back so for 24 inch wide boards the thicknesser is fine .
  24. So have any of you heard of the ICO data protection commissioners ,we got a letter from them stating if we porcess personal data and or use cctv at our yard for crime prevention we must pay a fee even if you have a dash cam in your work vehicle they want you to pay a Data Protection Fee ,seems like something Al Capone would have come up with but hey our governments are the biggest bunch of gangsters ,I was so F###ed Off ,taking the Piss I thought ,just wondering if anyone else had come across this . Cheers Mark
