He's still not learnt to avoid the heat of the early afternoon, and judging by the fact his wood pile doesn't seem to have shrunk any I don't think he's learnt much yet, but he has bought a 2 in1 file! Now maybe two hands and a little bit more effort than the tickling he was doing... Maybe. I see the file as a positive step and I commend his determination. He would be dangerous if he knew what he was doing.Phew! UK is starting another heatwave with warm air up from Spain/North Africa.... my car still has the Sahara dust on it from the last one in June. Managed to get out between the girls gym and swim lessons so before the heat was too bad... Although it was still hot in all the gear. A tank through the ea4300. A lot was blocking up unsplitable chunks and the chain was getting dull anyway so half way through I got the file out. It went much better after. I'm not far off done. Almost 4 cord CSS still got about a m³ of the big heavy Oak crotches out the front. They will need at least a tank through the 365 cutting into small pieces that I can split and blocking up the stuff that just can't. It's a PITA to do, but a run to the dump is the other option, also a PITA and at least this way I get firewood.
After the girls swim lessons I came out the pool to see a guy working away on a little of logs.... He looked like he had a lot to learn. Don't work in the heat of the afternoon for one, how to sharpen good chain for 2, how to use his axe for 3 as he seemed to be blocking up very splittable rounds with the saw despite a husqvarna splitting axe laying on the pile, and get on with it while the wood is green for 4 (I spotted the pile of delivered logs months ago. Oh and 5, with fuel prices surging if you leave logs right by the street they grow legs (he had a sign on his pile 'please don't take my logs!')
Still I guess the sign must be working
