Support Tally Ho

In this episode, Leo cuts and fits the big hook scarph in the Purpleheart for Tally Ho’s Keel timber. It’s a very dense hard wood, so it takes some time, and lots of tool sharpening, to get the faces nice and clear, fitting well. Moving these timbers around is a real challenge because of their weight (the larger one is about 1.5 tons), but is possible with lots of levers, jacks and rollers, and is "just the kind of work I enjoy."

In this episode, Leo makes his decision about Tally Ho’s Keel Timber, and heads off in search of some suitable timber. Once he's got hold of the Purpleheart, we have to figure out a way to move it! He talks about Scarph Joints and has to modify a chainsaw to do the job.
