The photo above shows a 36" southern yellow pine log on "Tom", a Baker 3638D sawmill.

This thread tells the very special and unique story about "Tom" and how he came to reside on my farm.

Our primary business is quartersawing, and we use our Baker Mill extensively in the process.  Logs larger than 36" are cut into quarters using a chain slabbing mill of our own design, and then the quarters are processed on our thin-kerf Baker into boards and planks.

With a milling length of 24', we frequently mill long timberframe timbers with our Baker.  Timbers longer than 24' are processed on a swing blade mill.

Those hand saws are awesome.  I have one here that I got from Tom In Mo  years ago and many times I will grb that before I'll grab a chop saw.  I'm real particular about it and it is still in its original cardboard sheath.

Sometimes there's no school like the old school!  Some things just need to be done by hand.

Yee haw!!!! Thanks Luke and Baker!  I'll look forward to receiving the goodies!

And a big CONGRATULATIONS for your spectacular performance at the 2017 Sawmill Shootout! 

12/20/17.  A box arrived Friday with my prize goodies in it.  i have the say, the saw is really nice and a tool that I not only did not have, but will also get some great service from it. 

Below is photo of all of the prize goodies laid out in my shop.

Thanks Baker!!!!

Scott
