looking to make 1 up powered by a single phase power pack.
any advice welcome
I think @Thick Farmer would be your man to advise on this and could speed the job up somewhat
What are you trying to achieve
What a lot of effort to do one pallet
Jemmy bar would be quicker
Stihl 261 would be quicker again.
My granma would be quicker but I'd have to dig her up first
Because @Thick Farmer would suggest a box of Swan Vestas!
Well my day job is gravedigger so if you need a hand getting her out or back again give me a shout.
well I can get free pallets to take way and I was going to chance selling kindling ive seen the bar type and il probly make 1 up anyway.
can any1 tell me can I use a hyd power pack from a old auto yard scapper.
not really helping you in your quest but maybe in a round about way, i just happened to be watching this video on a nail removal tool, pallets came to mind as i watched it , if you wanted to remove some nails to make kindlin.
there's always someone thinking....
I run them through a bloody great rip saw could have done 3 while he was messing about with that contraption making blanks into kindling for selling is a labour intensive job many have tried and shortly given up to fill a bag you need to disassemble the pallet then make the blanks into kindling then bag them then sell them then deliver them good luck with it
i just run through with chainsaw getting the easy stuff then bin the rest, only if im desperate for kindlin, pallet chopping is one of those jobs that achieves little for your efforts apart from maybe a tidier yard
I've done a few hundred last few year
they were delivered free
the guys stopped coming with them don't think that im that bothered yet
I use rough handy chain saw to get them handy. buy cheap chains , ebay
then evolution table saw , which will cut anything.
our lasses dad has helped a lot , done hundreds too , he used lumps of wood as leavers , prob 3x2 .
I bought a 4 ft wrecking bar to try leavers , did about 3 then reached for the saw .
evolution skill saw will do it but can kick badly. set blade as shallow as poss.
if u pull them apart u will have nails stuck out to stab u , with chain saw less so.
mine came from a stone yard so covered in sand designed to kill wood working equipment .
if u can get clean pallets id say chain saw .but don't disrespect a stihl on such a shitty job .
mite chance the chainsaw and get a loan of electric saw see which is better
This is the one occasion where I'd probably try an electric chainsaw. Constantly moving or rotating pallets and not having to worry about leaving a saw running or having to stop start and dealing with smaller wood is probably ideal for electric chainsaws.
There is some truth
And i own a few . Handy inside a building as no exhaust and quiet
But i never liked how u touch the trigger and it runs
U know if the engines running on a conventional chainsaw
But cheap to buy no fuel to mix there are plusses
The wire does get in the way
