« Part 3: Red ironbark I assume? Part 4 of Red IronBark Adventures series no next part

I was really supposed to be cleaning leaves out of the roof gutters but after the first bin load I pulled the piece of rotten Red Ironbark off cut I put there earlier and decided to amuse mysellf with it.

I took to the end with a die grinder bit then sanded it to 320 Grit and applied some shellawax

All pretty good I thought too nice for the bin anyway.

Now back up the ladder !!

That is an interesting idea, I have the two others to play with the 4th of the quadrant was returned to the bin.

My saw showed some burning on the sides, a dead give away for a dull blade!
So it was removed and given a good clean with white vinegar, it needs sharpening for sure.
So I figured that I should buy two extra blades for it too, ...just in case.
