    To be honest I don't really know. I'd be surprised if much is exported at all. Just looked it up. Pre 2019 we were exporting 15million tons of wheat, mostly to Netherlands Spain and Portugal. Goodness knows how Brexit has affected that. I know that a significant proportion of the wheat produced is not of milling grade which is why we still import a fair bit. At home in Scotland the main grain crop is barley for malting for beer and of course whisky.

      This is a very clever design and use it a lot for 3/8” thick material and up, I use 3/8” blades nearly always from 4 to 18 teeth.

      And if you look REAL close at an analog signal,
      You will find that it has discrete steps.

        It’s really old school but it cuts pretty fast,took me about 25 minutes after it was layed out.I do get the odd piece CNC plasma or waterjet but most times I can have job done at home in the time it takes getting it custom cut with travel time and my shop is open 24/7 when need be🤓

          Nice! I like wrenches that will either break the bolt loose, or break it off
          I just need one more tool,just one!
