  1. I'm building a solar powered solar drying kiln and am looking at suitable fans so need an idea what the max temperature might be inside. There's quite a lot of info on the web suggesting 150 degrees F but that is for kilns in the US. Just wondering if anyone has one in the south of england and knows what temperature they have reached. Thank you.
  2. Is there anyone in the Berkshire or South Oxfordshire who could give me some experience/teach me about milling (portable or chainsaw) and drying? Maybe in exchange for some labouring? I would like to start producing dried timber (mainly hardwood) on a small scale both for myself and other makers/craftspeople. I will be doing cs30 training in a couple of weeks but am coming at this from a user of timber and have very little experience at present. Part of my plan is also to build a solar powered kiln. Unfortunately I'm the wrong side of 50 but still fit and strong and keen to learn. Any offer of help would be appreciated no matter how small. Thanks Steve
