What do you want to build with it?

I have some I am going to unload.
All small pieces good for boxes raised panels etc but too small for chopping blocks.

Actually I am starting to build one of those Winchester elastic band riffles to mount on the wall, I was going to do the trigger and lever mechanism out of walnut. I have some walnut dowel on order for the barrels. The stock will be out of solid ash. (only because I have a piece of ash left from my coffee table build)

Ross from here http://lumberjocks.com/projects/210442 has been helping me with sizing and general tips.

Cheers
Anth

Anthony – I need to know how thick, how long and how much walnut and the same with the oak

I think we can work something out

You are a legend Dick,
Mate in honesty I don,t need much at all. Ill email you. Its just enough for the trigger and lever mechanism at 5/8ths thick on one of these Winchester elastic band rifles. I’ve ordered both Oak and Walnut dowel for the barrels from Rockler. I think Im going to go with the walnut though. I probably wont use the oak.
Thank you
Regards
Anthony

Thanks Tony, that is great to know for next time.(Honestly didnt know there was such a business) I can only sympathize with what these people would put up with from Australian customs importing timber.

Good work Dick… you have come through yet again.

Ivan Milatt
No he didnt have a Winchester rifle he (or the police found) a Ruger 10/22 rimfire Standard self loading rifle, serial number 120-15357 for what its worth. Dosn’t mean much to me not being a gun nut.

However there were also Eley cases found in the area, exibiting different firing pin impressions, and scientific results by Prof Young indicated a second weapon had been used. So go figure, also Gabor Neugebauer was a big boy somebody a single person would not have been able to handle let alone conduct the severing of the head of his girlfriend Anna Habschield as well.
