Glenn,  I'm sure Jim can get it sorted out. I don't know electronics but I do have a good grasp on electric and wiring.

Its official,  the kiln is loaded and running. So far everything seems to be operating as it should. I overloaded the kiln width wise and I'm not sure how this run is going to go. I wanted to figure out right away if I could get away with it. 90% 2 3/8 walnut slabs of various mc. Some air dried 6 months some 1 month. Delorme meter is telling me 20% up to 32%. Also threw in a few sticks of 8/4 cherry to see what happens with that. Threw in a little 5/4 walnut slabs pretty much fresh milled on top. If this kiln can make this oversized mixed load work I'll be thoroughly impressed.  Fingers crossed.



Sawmills and Milling / Trying to Find Black Locust

« Last post by summercampaaron on Today at 03:03:39 PM »
Hey All, 
I run a summer camp in Texas, and am trying to find black locust logs for a playground I'm building. It's proven surprisingly difficult to track down a source. I'm from western NC, where locust is plentiful, but it's hard to find from halfway across the country. Does anyone know of a source where I could find full logs?

One thing I see in the woods and I know anyone that has been in the woods see it too. Wudmen kinda mentioned it. A limb falling out of a tree stuck into the ground.Sometimes that stick will go into the ground 3-4 inches.  :o

Sorry not yet.  Still working on the release of our other new product.

This time of year is really busy with trade shows so makes it hard to get anything new done.

Compact tractor,that's what I have, 40 hp will kinda do what you want. But drop a front tire in a 6 inch hole,with a good size log up in the air four feet,bad things will happen quick. And I do mean quick.
I could use a bigger one.  ;D

I can't help you finding one, but take care, they made two different bands. 
Maybe has the right one.

If I could only save 500-800 a year I wouldn't spend the money to install a OWB you are going to spend a lot of money on this even if you do all the work your self. Even if your getting free wood from a tree service it cost a lot of money in time and equipment. I have land I need to clean up any way so I have to deal with the trees but it still takes a lot of time and money to make it to firewood. Burning wood is a life style so make sure the family is on board before the money is spent.

Selfie from deerstand. Its windy wet and cold out here. I suspect the deer left for Florida. Its supposed to be single digits tonight. My sister is hunting from a heated blind, I'm going old school. I want that big deer. I'll settle for less, but he ain't going to be up where its cushy.

Oops. I don't know why I wrote "honeysuckle". It is honey locust. I will correct the original post.

« Last post by Crusarius on Today at 01:03:24 PM »
I agree about the width. my bed is 50.75 wide and reaching anything on the far side is a real stretch. I ended up getting a blue hookaroon just so I could reach. In hindsight I keep thinking about moving my operator side to the sawdust side of the mill. that will cut alot of stretching over the bed out.

I also agree about the 12" between the welds. stagger them 6" each side. you will not put enough heat into the frame that it will even think about moving.

How wide is the bed?
