    Roadside oak failure that caught my eye. Fairly sparse crown, usual physical damage, flails etc. Look at the punky wood, ganoderma something or other, I know there are two similar sorts.

    Ah I see.

    I won’t say I haven’t stuck a twig under the safety bar on a very rare occasion on my old TW, when feeding awkward stuff. Not any more and never again. Can you imagine how you would be hung, drawn and quartered by HSE if something happened?

    I’m surprised they fit an option to override the stop bar, you would have thought there’d be all sorts of EU legislation to prevent that. Over here there’s extra stop buttons needed on all chippers, even have to be retrofitted to older models.

    I’d be happy with 2k on that.

    I think we’re taking it all a bit seriously.

    A car battery is a battery, a battery for a torch is a pile. One of those things that catch me out, even now.

    Ha, it’s called a bobine here, the little black ignition thing.

    I had the same as a salesman, dreaded clients, getting told to get lost 10 times a day, sales manager on your case. Life is full of stress.
  12. Lots of wood cutting going on here, now is good for cutting. Be wary of involving neighbours, you may find that someone will come in, extract the best stuff, smash the rest to pieces and wave as they drive off. I’ve seen it happen.
  13. Can you coppice oak?

    100%white spirit on ropes.

    I would be wary of spirits on ropes. Surely it degrades it?
