The challenge that I have is that I cut lumber from 1m to 4m and yes I could just use a 4m ladder. But it not pratical to move around with a car so I made this rail system. The main rail are two stainless steel tubes in section of 1.5m and som C iron to go across. The connection is made with a smaller tube inside and all bolted together. I now have the choice of 1.5m or 3m or 4.5m rails and all fits into our stationcar.
ive been using the alaskan mill for about 3 or 4 years now and have 3 sets of rails but... the vibration on the wee screws that set your pitch, enlarge the hole that they sit in and this causes the rail screws to unthread whilst your cutting your top board. ive thought of a few different designs, but was wondering if anyone had made their own or had thoughts on how to design better one? (not wanting to strap on old ladders! )
