  1. A few years ago I made my own kiln in a refrigerated lorry body. It was fibreglass and I stuck a 28 kw workshop stove in there. Burned sawdust or wood. It wasn't the best installation but it did work. I cut the roof lights out so it could vent and small house fans blowing under the bulk bins . I bought a diesel space heater later on with a thermostat so it cut in at 50 °c. This worked well but I will change it around next time , mainly for logistics. Feeding the stove was a pain so was loading , had no forklift but the idea worked. Ideally two stoves outside in their own insulated room blowing hot air into the kiln.
  2. Pretty much. I know the work related injuries/pains that I have and I know that you have worse! And you're an old fart
  3. Pretty good thanks mate. I trust that you are as well as can be expected?
  4. Looking at upgrading to a large pto driven horizontal splitter. Has anyone got one ? 30 to 45 tonne Regards
  5. Cheers. I may splash out on a bigger tractor and a 30/40 tonne machine.
  6. Looks like 30 tonne max on my current tractor then.
  7. My tractor is only 38 HP at the shaft . Do I need more power to run a big splitter ? 200 litres a min I think the Balfor is.

  9. I have resurfaced . Had problems with getting on here , I only have a mobile and it played up for a while.
  10. There are an old couple in Wroxham who need an honest fire wood supplier. Their daughter lives near me and is worried about them. She thinks they are being ripped off and their open fire is their means of heating. I will go if no one else can ,but it's a long way for me.

    560xp problem

    It may be what Matt says to Spud...
  12. I have a Thor Mignon 11 tonne and there isn't much that stops it. I would think you will be fine.
  13. I have the Mignon and I agree with you.
  14. Shouldn't spin , they have a leg to prevent this . You wouldn't put a goon on it , but I know where you're coming from
  15. Morning everyone. I have been looking at the large Posch screw type splitter . I seem to remember that someone on here bought one and would like to ask them how they got on with it? Something like this would suit me for the time being for doing billets.

  20. That is a bargain , they must be a grand new? sent from my phone but never in work time.
  21. As a novice and with no training , I find it a little scary doing trees like this. It's not my proper job , I was given this tree by the Gardner for firewood. I just take my time and think it through. Makes me appreciate the skills /knowledge you people have. sent from my phone but never in work time.
  22. I almost went that route but had it welded , as you know. Sold it on now sent from my phone but never in work time.
  23. Fireblight i would imagine. I noticed it on some whitebeam at a well known large tree nursery whilst cutting budding wood last summer. I think they had to muller the lot. sent from my phone but never in work time.
