  1. Yep, can't see the attraction of being a subbie cutter, when there is all this form filling fun to be had!!๐Ÿ˜œ

    Wood treatment.

    It's not for me as such, so it will be painted. Something from the Cuprinol garden shades range of paints. The preserver that I already have is solvent based, so not sure if that can be painted over.

    Wood treatment.

    Got one of those mass produced "log cabins" on the way. 28mm thick planed logs, t&g floor and roof. It all comes untreated. It will be painted at some point, colour not decided yet. I need to get it protected as soon as it's up, any suggestions as to what to use that can be over painted soon after?
  5. Good luck with it Mike (met you briefly when you came down to see Jonathan) Make the most of any quiet time you have now, because if you take off like J has, your free time is over.๐Ÿ˜‰

    Small saw to compliment 550XP

    Echo 390 esx would fit the bill. Thinking about getting one myself, just looking around for the best price.

    Not sure how different they are, but I think it was a 192, my mistake.

    The 190 has a very restrictive baffle on the 'zorst. Guy I used to work with had one and it seemed such a pointless saw. We took the 'zorst off and had a look. We drilled a 9mm hole right opposite the exhaust port and the saw was transformed. It realy was a night and day difference.

    Not looking at new, seen a three year old one for similar money to a 181. No logging, just something to use for very small trees, brashing and coppicing type work.

    Anyone use the back handled 201 as a lightweight general purpose saw? Are they any good?
  14. Might be good to add a location to your post.

    Why did this happen?

    Is there an inner and outer face of the sprocket, as in spaced out further if fitted on one way or the other?
