  1. Yes, they get deliveries. They get deliveries and pay a premium on the product due to their location and additional cost of shipping out to a small island. Id want more than £45.
  2. I’d get behind that. Will be fun watching Dave spank these wee laddies.
  3. You’re gonna have to give him more to go on than that. He’s no the brightest spark and with such a scant retort bereft of depth he’ll still be none the wiser.
  4. He's easily confused. He needs his wee chums to tell him how to think before he can form an opinion.
  5. I’m still around. Too much projects to get on with just now the weathers better. Building an Island Countertop on the wet days and leveling the lawn on the dry.
  6. I sell 90% of my meger timber sales through FB Marketplace. 10% through Gumtree.
  7. I see a lot of ring shake in Oak. If I was asked before seeing this post Id have thought it was one of the most common species to get it. Never seen it in Elm, or at least the Elm Ive milled and Im yet to mill Sweet Chestnut in any meaningful quantities. Ive a mate who is a Timber Framer and worked with Oak since he was 15 and see's ring shake all the time, its the first thing he checks for when selecting an Oak Log. Star shake is another issue but not as common as ring shake (from my own experiences)
  8. Really depends. I sometimes get a 10t bogie delivering me Larch or Elm. You'll pay a small premium for getting that size of delivery over an Arctic. I think I paid £700 for the last 10t bogie of Elm but there was maybe 6-7t in it.
  9. I can mill 5.7m on my Bandsaw but I if Im re-sawing already squared off beams then its easy to slide the beam down the bunks and finish the cut. 7.4m would not be an issue. I did this recently for a customer as he needed 20 beams like this done. You're way to far away for me to do something like this but Id be wanting £300 if you where closer.
  10. Depends on the profitability of the work though. If you can make £150 an hour with your own work and someone wants something re-sawn they dont normally want to spend more than £50 an hour. Even then they scoff. Plus the hassle of stopping what you're already doing or planning to do is not always that straightforward. Is there metal in the junk they're bringing in? They're not gonna want to spring for a new band plus your down time. You spend more timer dealing with messers and dont make a penny out of them.
