Thanks Magnus, I took 61 chainsaw, a few pictures, and a crosscut. This may be the last large display I do - the saws seemed to have gained weight since last year. :shock:

Lots of heavy stuff there, I can see why you hesitate to do it again. A pity though, that is a really great display! :sun: :thumbs:

Great display, transporting and setting up on display would be a hell of a job I reckon.

I'm sure a lot of effort was put into it but looked very worthwhile.
