  1. Using circular blade I take much larger chips... I have a lot of equine friends that had said it was too wet to use as bedding... though they also said that it wasn’t white enough for there precious horses [emoji23] Will get in contact with some farmers see if they’ll pay me!
  2. Can you burn wet (as in fresh cut) sawdust with a sawdust stove?
  3. What does everyone do with sawdust? Is there any good uses (except for extremely difficult jigsaws) I’ve got quite a pile building up!
  4. Well said Alec Personally had a really good experience with Rob Will be buying from him again (when he gets some .404 bars back in stock ) It’s all a learning experience in the end!
  5. What you running now then As you might guess I’m in the market for a new milling bar!
  6. Great piece of kit! I have a WPF with a ten inch cut and it’s great for making standard bourd which is what I want as a furniture maker also removes the need for a first cut when using a chainsaw mill as I can cut the top and bottom of the logs into bourds and use the wider center sections as slabs I’ve attached a few photos of what is capable.. the mill will cut about 2m3 an hour including time for manual log handling.
  7. turned some mulberry bowls at one stage wood movement was extreme but It didn't crack... good luck 😀
  8. milled up a beech the other day lovely flame colours which were not visible from the outside of the log as for the value of the wood I cant comment
  9. how much iron was there to cause that much staining? looks great though I've got s load of stained oak that ill have t use at some point
  10. another question would be has anyone had issues with the 36" or just the 48"? would the extra resistance of the 48 causing the sprocket to break? as for the use with a 660 the 660 has 7.1 hp and the 880 at 8.6 the 880 lasted at 20 mins of cutting with the last sprocket we had so i cant imagine that the 660 lasting a very long time even with the less power i could be wrong
  11. Awesome, Starting to fill my workshop up Only thing about those old machines is the dust Do you have any setup for dust extraction? Thanks
  12. I’m far from doing it for a living too I’m still in remote school and milling in my breaks and study lessons As for the harness not sure how I would test for that.
  13. Those old machine tools generally made with a lot less tolerance and adjustments on the ways. I’ve seen them recovered form a hell of a worse state The major thing I’d be worried about is the reason it was outside electrical issues are normally easily fixed. Cracked castings is what I’d be worrying about
  14. where is this located? thanks
  15. That’s my third tip gone I milled for ages with a 066 and a 36” Stilhl bar and never had any problems
