    You’ll be reight egglet, i never wanted a touch screen phone..... wouldnt go back now though, everything is to hand for ya!
  3. We have a band saw at work, all be it a metal one but principal is the same. It started to cut skewwiff one day..... typical idleness, no one reported it and i came to use it one day and noticed cutting fluid running out the bottom/back of the casing???? I took the covers off and found a huge amount of shite and swarf in there and could see uneven wear marks on the guides/rollers... got me scratching the old swede for a bit. Anyhow, cleaned everything out and reset everything, pressed go and watched the blades path at each point/turn/guide/roller etc. I could see i running out on occasion and noticed a kink in the blade. That made me inspect the blade more closely, i then found some excessive wear in a few places on the blade, so...... My thinking was, shite build up causing drag/misalignment, kink in the blade possibly causing a tight passage during cutting and misalignment again at certain points. And a dull blade at different points causing excess pressure needed to make the cut added to the above.... a curve cut???!!! So sod it was my conclusion, fit a new blade, cured! [emoji106] You changed your blade recently?? [emoji23][emoji23]
  4. Waviness down to how it is fed / pushed through the log? Excess pressure causing blade to twist slightly causing the downward cut, relieving of pressure allowing blade to rise again, hence your waviness? Incorrect guide / blade tension? 🤷‍♂️
  5. Piston in right way round? Arrow to exhaust side.
  6. My TS410 isnt a patch on my old TS400, its had new pot, piston, crank, 2 coils, 2 carb rebuilds since i’ve had it, only had it about 3 yrs, not done mega work either, just flagging projects really. TS400 i’ve had for about 11 yrs, only thing its had is 1 carb rebuild, and bet its done 5 times more work easily, 🤷‍♂️ pot luck sometimes though i guess!
  7. Wanging it down all day again, Proper ruined the afternoon plans!
