Okay, I guess there are indeed many ways to skin a cat!

I mentioned in a quick post the other day that Colleen had discovered that the chipper's main cutting blades were badly worn and needed to be sharpened.  A few trips around to various places that have done other work for us in the past uncovered a problem.

It turns out that these hammers are too hard for most of the automated sharpening equipment out there, and so if we want them cleaned up and sharpened (actually they just sort of have an angled side rather than an actual sharp edge; at the speeds they bite into the wood they don't need anything else) they'd have to do it by hand.  That is a prohibitively expensive option, so the shops all recommend that we just order replacements online.

Okay, I guess we'll do that instead.  A bit of a delay but the branches aren't going anywhere.

Lesson Learned:  As setbacks go this is a small one, but always be prepared for setbacks in your schedule--they are going to happen!

But it's still fun.
