    Cheers wonky I will have a good check out of the bar Chain is correct for bar and sprocket It's not the greatest log but I would rather save it from the fire wood pile if I can. It has a good bit of figure to it

    Wedge put in after to make cuts with a different saw, not for the milling process Mill all clamped up solid. Pics of chain, bar and mill

    No debris in timber , right hand side is bottom of the tree Cuts were taken from the other end of log to try and get the job done. They go for 5' then start to rise

    As I said cut from left to right just comes to a stop not sure why but chain seems to suddenly pull out of bar to one side and stop cutting (saw over revealed) chain moves very fast no saw dust

    I really think this is an issue with that part of the timber rather than the chain/ mill. I just don't know how to fix it

    Cheers for replys, Chain sharpens with granberg cut started again from the other end because it come to a stop in the cut almost felt like the mill frame was hitting something, but not. Wedges put in after so I could make a severence cut with a different saw I'm near Sittingbourne Kent

    Hello chaps, been doing the odd bit of milling for a while, but have just had a bit of an issue that I'm not sure how to deal with. First cut taken reasonably flat, second cut seemed to lift/ rise in the cut within the first 8 inch, run from other end of log cut fine until close to this section of timber. Second cut exactly the same chain/ bar rises up in the log. Chain swapped on first cut and bar flipped No metal- debris in timber 661- panther mill lo pro pmx chain

    Cheers chaps turning blanks was pretty much my decision, I just hate ringing up reasonable lengths of wood. Any local turner's about . . .

    Monkey puzzle

    Hello, is there any interest in a bit of monkey puzzle in Kent. I'm bringing down a 35-40 ft tree about 18" diameter at base. Not sure if I'm going to plank it or ring it for turning blanks
  15. Hello there, as title states I'm after some processor size wood ideally as dry as possible. We have space for an article but you would need to unload yourself. Thanks Steve
