We moved some very valuable norway maple logs up to the mill bunks this morning.
Not sure how to cut some of these snakes.

It never ceases to amaze me of what people think are good logs to mill.

Nice looking bunch of firewood Rob. TIC
In regard to my hitting the rear side support, I checked it today and it is about a 16th of an inch higher that the front one.
Go figure. I should have just lowered them a bit more.
BTW the blade was a several times sharpened one so no big loss.

I would call that a whack of burl slabs Rob.  :o

Pete, I think that I would adjust that rear side support.  ;)

It was the same old thing for me today.  Red clay sand is only one step away from cement.  :-\


 
I sawed "Dana's" log today.  :-X


 
Just cleared a trail through the sand and sawed away.   ;D

Wow MM
That's some sand.
Sand is hard on bands
I get some when the tree company drops logs in the back sand pit.
It sticks right on the logs
That red stuff looks tough

The last burl on the mill this morning with AJ setting up.We took advantage of the WM mill extension sale last month and added a section, a good move. If folks wonder why I'm not in the milling photos, it's because I'm in the shop grinding away on table tops. I'd rather be outside ! ;D

I had a guy interested in buying the mill come over and work with us today.
I was just going to show him how the mill worked.
He stayed 6 hours and ran the mill for half that time.
His name is Tom ,he's coming back tomorrow for more milling.
I didn't get any pictures 
I will tomorrow. 
Cool and damp I'm starting the wood stove

Good news on the mill! What is the target date for the new one?

Mid to high 80's here today and yesterday, severe storms moving in, possibly tornadoes tomorrow, back down into the 40's after that, probably will be starting the wood stove as well.

I bucked these to length for today's sawing and got 5 done when the seal in the log turner hydraulic cylinder gave way and the claw would not stay down.  Kept creeping up.  Since I was coming home today anyway, I brought the cylinder with me and I will pick it up from the hydraulic shop tomorrow afternoon. After 19 years I guess that it was time for a rebuild.

I use to have a repair shop here in town rebuild mine untill I got a quote on fixing one once and then he just about doubled the price when I picked it up.  I do my own now, and its not rocket science.  Most seal kits are only $25 or $30 bucks and if you got the cylinder off thats the hard part.  You just have to have the parts book that shows how the seals go in, you can put them in backwards.  The hardest one I ever done was on the Prentice 210 C.  I had to make a wrench to take the nut off.  But I got it now. ;)   Banjo

I normally rebuild mine too, matter of fact I just rebuilt my log clamp up/down cylinder in February.  Other than the toe board cylinders this is the last one.  Circumstances dictated a shop rebuild on this one because if everything goes as planned, I will be sawing Monday. 

It will be a full sawing week, but there is a possibility that I may finally finish sawing at this location.  The customer will need many more timbers, but he does not know where the logs will come from yet.  He is looking for a few acres of timbered property to buy.  Time will tell.
