Finally bought a mill! Bought a Wood-Mizer LT10
« on: February 03, 2013, 09:49:01 PM »
Well on the last day of the sale I bought the WoodMizer LT10 with the 10hp engine and 7' of additional track.  It may be here tomorrow as they said that it was going on Friday.  My plans are to be cutting some heart pine and douglas fir barn beams and wanted to thank all that brought up the Norwood Cobaltized sawmill blades, I found some bi-metal blades from Timber Wolf for 1/2 the money but since so many of you like these Norwood blades I will call them and order a few tomorrow.  I bought (50) 12' 10" x 10" Heart Pine Beams from a 1840's barn and will be picking them up on Wednesday afternoon.  I will let you know how things go and shoot some photos of the first beam.  Planning on making flooring for my house to start and mirror frames.

Congrats Schramm, on the mill purchase. It's a great feeling, isn't it? I know it was fo r me. Finally cutting my own logs, and doing some cutting for others.

Now the fun begins. Be sure to post some pics on the build, and some of those first cuts.

Congrats to you schraam.  I just got an lt10 also. They are great machines and I just finished up 1100 board feet of Cedar plus another 100 feet of White Pine and Balsam,   I got the 10 h.p also.  I would like to get a little bit of a deflector for the 10 h.p American made briggs to defolect exhaust away from the headmast upright.  The 10 h.p is a great easy startnig engine.  Let me know if yoiu think the mast head goes up  and down as easy AS you thought it should.  Mine is awful tight but I would not trade tht lt10 for anything.  I have had the mill for about 3 or 4 weeks. WM is a great company.

Congratulations on the sawmill purchase.  You probably will need some blade lube sawing that heart Pine.

Blade lube,from the soap aisle,cascade liquid.
But if you are below freezing window wash.

Magicman and others have it down pat. No pun intended there MM ;D They will be along to give you some ideas.
Magiceman may not be much help with below freezing temps.  :D

Where do I get the blade lube from?
There are blade lube threads on the forum.  Everyone here has something they use but they are mostly inexpensive concoctions that include things like pine sol, dish liquid or wiper fluid.
