Sawmills and Milling / Re: Whatcha Sawin' ???

« Last post by PA_Walnut on Today at 08:24:34 AM »
Well, I agree that it would seem to be packed dust under the blade. I ordered 7 NON-TURBO blades, but I think WM sent me Turbos anyway.

I GUARANTEE that if I push the turbos to the speed that they want on a full width cut, they will not perform...been there done that. Carbide is the only solution I have found thus far, which is why I asked for standard 7s.

This is what my "non-turbo 34's" look like on the gauge at 7. I guess you get Turbos whether you want them or not.  :-\

Technical Support Topics / Foresty forum on screen clock question

« Last post by Jim_Rogers on Today at 08:19:50 AM »
My computer clock and cell phone clock are different from the forum clock by 6 minutes. FF clock is 6 minutes faster.
I was just letting you know.
Maybe it's just me.

Forestry and Logging / Re: Hauling gear/tools on the skidder..

People steal trailers too unfortunately.  


What about welding brackets to a jobox or knaack so you can pick and drop with the blade then just hook a chain or strap to make sure it stays put in transit?  You could put your cooler, saws, fuel, gear etc all in it.  Bring a foldup camp chair and youd have a nice seat and tabletop for lunch.


Paint it camo and hide it out in the bush [chained up and in front of an IR deer cam] for overnight parking.

General Board / Cheapest Way to Build a Garage ?

« Last post by Pulphook on Today at 08:16:35 AM »
It's garage time at last after 20 years. 2 cars, splitters, brush cutters, deck umbrellas, power washer, tires, etc... some upstairs storage, about 28X28, unheated, uninsulated, slab, not steel. 2x4 is fine.
She wants it cedar shingled like we did with the house.

Options:
Stick built
"Kits" from lumber shops
Pre Manufactured

Suggestions ?

If you guys aren't using water, with the blue rust preventative what are you using?

And still what pump are you using? anyone?

Well I'm going to do the job myself. The co that the ins co sent out wanted me to pay in advance and sign a contract he had on his smart phone, I told hem that was not going to happen. the estimate included a 12 cubic yard dumpster to haul away the broken concrete(about a 5 gal bucket full).

Chainsaws / Re: Rebuilding a Chainsaw Run on Straight Gas

Majority of the time new p/c kit is all you need for a straight gased chainsaw.

If you're getting chinise p/c, i'd go with a farmertec. I wouldn't trust any other unbranded chinise parts.

Thanks so much for the advice on stickering...really like the pallet idea. I sourced a company out of New York for the painted end stickers. Pretty sure they're made from mahogany. Spent a few hours milling some poplar for my nephew. It's great practice for when those paying jobs come in. Following a post by Magicman, I think my first 6x6 post came out pretty good.

I've had a couple more episodes. A bad one this morning. One of the nightmare ones. I've not taken anything since that one time as I don't have access to anything.

General Woodworking / Re: Oppinions on cabinet panels?

« Last post by WDH on Today at 07:46:54 AM »
If it is mockernut, leaflets are 7 and the rachis is wooly tomentose.  The nut involucre dehises completely exposing the whole nut.  The nut involucre is also thick, up to 1/4".  In pignut, the leaflets are in 5's, the rachis is smooth, and the nut involucre only partially dehises 2/3rds to the base.  The nut involucre is thin. 

Then, there is shagbark, shellbark, sand, bitternut, water, pecan, and red hickory ;D

Hard to discern this in a panel unless you have paranormal powers.  I always thought that Don was just a bit para-normal :D.

PA,
How wide were the cuts?  7 .055 ?  Turbos? Cherry should cut like butter.  Packed sawdust means lots of gullet spillage.

If you got the full windshield, you should Won't regret it. Rain comes in through the front when you drive in the warmer months, snow and cold in the winter. Does it come with a wiper? If not, start looking for something. Rain isn't too bad, except at night, but if you are out in the snow, or plowing, visibility gets to be a real problem. For me, it's not so much 'where am I going?' and more of "where is the edge of my plow and where is the edge of the drop off?"
Good luck with your new machine, it can make life a lot easier, I love mine and it's an old war dog. DO yourself a favor at some point and buy the shop manual for it. These guys charge like crazy and not all of them to top flight work. It's not rocket surgery. :D

7 Turbos will with hard logs and too slow sawing speed.  I am sure that PA will experiment with his speed today.
