Sawmills and Milling / Re: Questions for a Linn Sawmill build

« Last post by Crusarius on Today at 06:45:13 PM »
Slop is fine. all that matters is it ends up tracking close to the same point on the bandwheels. once you tension it it will find its happy place and should not have any issues

General Board / Re: Snow chains/cables

« Last post by ljohnsaw on Today at 06:43:25 PM »
If I understand what I have read correctly.  All of the current pickup truck manufactures tell NOT to put any type of chains on the front of your 4WD trucks.  Something to go with the ABS senor wiring.  I know my 2012 F150 Super-crew tells you not too.

I'm only 2wd but point well taken.

Raining pretty good right now and supposed to get real bad tomorrow and Thursday with a total rainfall between 5 and 7 inches in places, 5 feet of snow up the hill.  Needless to say, I WON'T be going up there this week!

That's not a bad suggestion at all, more than a few have put a band on backwards, myself included. I did see a guy try to cut some dry white oak with a backwards band once, it actually cut, not well and boy oh boy did it make noise, but it cut.

   Down South it is "y'all" or "you all" (Which can be used as singular or plural), in parts of New York and New Jersey it may be "Youse Guys" and I worked a project at the WV Northern Panhandle where it is about 5 miles separating Western PA and Eastern OH and there it was "You'uns"

Mice like to pee on stuff and that gets sticky. 
WD40 your governor and throttle spring and see if that helps. 

You can find "mouse away" at the local home stores. 
Toss one onto your engine mounting plate before you pack up and see if that keeps the varmints out of the sensitive parts.

   BTW - I know you love your T7s and they may work fine but the last hemlock I sawed I used 4 degree dh blades. Kind of like spruce where you run from soft wood to very hard knots. Yes, shake can be an issue on some so don't be surprised if you find it. Seems to me it was more common in the larger logs but could just be my memory fading again.

This is the worst suggestion ever, but were your blades turned the right way out for your mill? 
That is, are the teeth facing the right direction when you cut?

Very nice! Are those engraved or is that done with the laser attachment?

Nutn wrong with the HD4. Even the small bed. I've "tiled" many projects with mine, had it about 2 yrs. Has not given me any trouble. There are pros and cons as with any equipment.

It's amazing what you can do with em!

Drying and Processing / Re: Air drying without overhead cover

« Last post by Escavader on Today at 06:16:06 PM »
The covers arent so much for keeping the wood dry,its to keep the direct sun off the top layer to avoid cupping,or degrade.We cover most of our packs with a sheet of old metal roofing before we strap it tight

That would probably win the 2019 Travel Award!
Yup, I was awarded a "Texas" cap for traveling the greatest distance to last year's Pig Roast.  I could see this as an opportunity to give it back.  :D

I just made a quote on a road trip sawmilling job.  $3847 travel/setup, .35 per bf sawing, plus lodging.  :o  Seattle, WA.  ;D  Is there anything special that I need to know about sawing Hemlock?
If you ever wanted to upgrade to a wide head a sawing trip to the PNW sounds like the perfect excuse.

Sawmills and Milling / Re: Engine surging

« Last post by Don P on Today at 05:54:12 PM »
The air filter on the 20 hp B&S my buddy has is not in the best location. It should be blown off before removing or it is easy to drop dust into the carb. We had a surging problem we couldn't fix, I pulled the carb apart 9 times blowing, squirting, running welding tip cleaners through everything I could but no joy. Finally bought a new carb and that fixed it. The idle air on the carb is a small internal passage around the butterfly that I can rod out the vertical part of the passage on. At the base of that is a horizontal passage behind a welch plug that I cannot get to. I suspect a piece of dust got into that passage and hung there. So it wouldn't idle and lacked power/ surged at full throttle when the main and idle should have both been working. Choke helped smooth it but then power was down. Anyway that was the best theory we could come up with. I need to try to get the plug out of the original carb and see if that was the problem because we pulled the filter to clean it the other day in the field, didn't blow the area down and its starting to surge again.

I can tell he hasn't been practicing his Bore Cuts, or following any of Belben's posts about creative Falling Techniques.....
At least he didn't get 4 or five Bars stuck.

Chainsaws / Re: Ordered Stihl 261 C-M & Received Stihl 261 C-MQ

« Last post by lxskllr on Today at 05:48:02 PM »
I'd return it. IMO, It adds complexity for dubious benefit. I can't think of a situation it would be useful where the typical chainbrake wouldn't work, aside from simple transport when you're walking around the cutting area. It's not hard to remember to activate the normal chainbrake if you need to walk.

Timber Framing/Log construction / Re: Started the build.

Good Lord it has been cold and windy. :( DanG shame it is hard on me when it is hot and cold. >:(

Anyway, yesterday I did a little iron work building the tracking system for that closet door. Today with the help of my wife, I got that door hung. Very happy how it came out. ;D













Have a little touch up painting to do. Also, I will be doing a live edge board to cover the cross tracking like I did the bathroom.

I also got the base boards down, but ran out of time to install the shoe molding. Got tired. :(
