    Entonces, Ambrose, deja que sea yo el que se asombre. Las cuentas del gobierno astur no dejan lugar a dudas. Asturias tiene más funcionarios por cada mil habitantes que Catalunya, muchos más, creo que un treinta por ciento más.

    Hi Rocklobster. I saw your post about your ridgid lathe. I just inherited the same lathe and am instanly becoming a wood turning enthusiast. Did you ever figure out what to use the large nut for that is on this lathe? I haven't figured out what it is there for. Let me know if you have any ideas. Nothing is mentioned in the user manual either. thanks

    MWF, if you do a google search for Alaskan Mill or Alaskan Chainsaw Mill, you should find what I'm using. I don't think a 10" bar is big enough to fit any of them, though, so you may need to upgrade that. It also takes a lot of power (I think 55 cc's is the minimum recommended, and 90 cc's would be more reasonable). My chainsaw is a little undersized and so the work is slow going and hard on the saw. I've since found a sawyer to handle this stuff for me. It is fun, though, if you have the right chainsaw. Oh, you'll also need a rip chain. Good luck.

    Rocklobster: I see you in a boat,,,thus I presume you do some lobster fishing.. by the way, I saw your planking a wood panel from a timber with a chain saw.. I have a 10" chainsaw-electric, but very powerfull, Where can I get one of those attachments that you can adapt to the saw like you did in order to cut wood in that fashion? or did you design it? Is quite a nice tool..I live in Florida and I am guessing lot of trees will be down as articulated and forescasted by the weather guys for the 2010 season?.., probably, I should get one of those 18 chainsaws as well..LOL.
