Hi there, I milled my first log today (sycamore). It went fine in general, but I have two questions: 1) I didn't manage to get the top and bottom of the planks parallel - on other words, when you look at the ends, they are a slight wedge shape. Yet I thought I was holding the jig flat the whole time. Is there a knack I'm missing? Or does it all get evened in the planing? 2) I could dry the timber outside in the normal way, but I also have a dry cellar. Obviously in the cellar, I would miss the wind, but I wouldn't have to worry about rain. Is the cellar a good idea or a bad one? Thanks, Richard
Purchased an Alaskan with a 20 inch chain a couple of weeks ago through Rob D who was very helpful. Was on my CS30/31 at the time so I have only just got round to using it. I ran it with my 361 which did a pretty good job but it wasn't exactly fast... Started out just doing a small length of Sweet Chestnut for a bit of practise and then went on to a larger piece of Ash. I really enjoyed seeing all the grain patterns inside the wood and was happy with the results. Will add some pictures shortly James
