Interestingly the consensus at the Barrell Tree Care was ".... 1910 – most likely elm and ash, unlikely to be much chestnut or lime up in the peak district." Oak wasn't mentioned by any of them! Field maple was also suggested. I am planning a site visit so will take a survey of species I ...

Hi Tim No its not a stupid question Very difficult to answer looking at the picture the top trees defiantly has the look of Ash. The lower trees on the fence line with the broken branches Could well be English Oak (Quercus Robor) Elm, Ash. Willow or Beech are possibilities as all suffer with Limb da...

As to lubricants I don't tend to use any on the big lathe usually only turn brass and nickel silver which don't need it, even steel although it can run hot and could do with a coolant if running it too fast.
