WM does offer an edger that will cut 4" thick, but you'd need two 4x4Americans with LT70 Supers to keep it fed.  ;D






 :D :D :D

I like the look of Baker gear - looks like serious solidly made equipment with some thought attached -
 they've got a couple machines that would fill a few gaps in my sawline pretty well methinks. Sadly I was broke when the exchange rate made sense to do it and (story of my life) you can bet I'll be back to broke again by the time it swings back that way again.


Our SLR works great, but has only one blade, and I can't run green wood on it, or its cast iron bed will rust.   

We run green timber on cast iron beds all the time with no problems. Just blow them down at the end of the day, and give them a wipe over with a rag with a touch of petroleum jelly or paraffin wax melted into turpentine. And a bit of hard paraffin rubbed on the tables as you're sawing to keep them slippery through the day means they get a hard slippery surface coat that protects them both from wear and corrosion.

My cast iron tables are old, but aside from normal wear and tear they're in perfect condition and the tops of them let wet wood slip like a well waxed dance floor.

 

 

This one here is the oldest of them - and new to me - shes a big old 2 man breast bench. Tables a bit pitted from sitting in the weather but not bad considering the foundry that cast her went bankrupt in the great depression and she's been worked (and modernized every few decades) ever since.... I dont quite know why I brought it home because its more suited to a historic display or boat anchor but I wasnt going to let it go to scrap. At that size she wont have ever seen anything but wet wood.

Great tips! I need to do better about wiping down my mill, etc. I lube and maintain religiously, but since my 11 year old daughter now "clocks in" at the mill to earn some cash, I think she can keep 'er tip top, make some mall money and everyone wins!! :D 8)

You can't go wrong with any equipment from Baker. 

So Robert, are you having it shipped to your location?  Or, are you making a trip to Missouri?  If you are making the trip, I owe you a meal.

I'm probably going to get it shipped since it's not on a trailer.  Thanks for the invitation.
