  3. Poetry. Talk about the dignity of labour. I'd feel very dignified operating that.

  4. No photos sorry, but a relative has built a bigger one down this way. Similar idea, but it takes much larger logs than in that one, has a massive hydraulic guillotine to chop the log instead of a chainsaw, then shoves the round through a square grid. Incredible machine. Mounted on a truck trailer, couldn't get this one on the front of a bobcat! I believe the biggest problem with it is actually finding logs large enough to make it worth starting the machine.

  6. I sat transfixed... couldn't stop watching it imagining selected members of the National and Labour party (and ALL of the Greens') caucuses going through it. Then I watched it again....! Cool!

  7. Ok ok.... I know the correct word is 'cauci', but for the purposes of clarity, etc..

    Oh, and I LOVED the way the operator shook off parts of Sue Bradfords's head when they threatened to get stuck in the system... :-)
