    Can be ridiculously strong for what it is apparently. Pykrete, not so called for the reasons you may suspect... :D

    Other than tearing on the cut face crack on. Won't hurt a fence.

    In the Dumfriesshire hills where I worked as a cutter, temperature could be - double figures for a few days. Some of the trees would be frozen for the first inch or so, slowed the saws down slightly. Biggest job was keeping the saws going even if you opened the flap in the top cover to allow warm air flow over the carb

    Nip as in Nip your skin. Wet timber closes up on the blade if the kerf isn't great enough

    I’ve been a roofer for my sins. Still got the bow, and all my fingers, though they didn't get away totally unscathed:o:laughing:
