I brought this post back as an update.  Many of you know I bought a LT70.  (It's a walk behind not a remote) I have now put about 100 hrs on it.  I still grab the wrong levers but I am getting better with it.  

Last week I had to take it in for a small repair and I picked up the seat for the mill. I got to use it a little this weekend.  I think even when I am running it by myself it is going to help with the fatigue of walking back and forth.

This weekend I moved the mill to the buildings that I had tied up earlier.  There is more work to be done but we got the roll up door fixed and set up my mill in the building that has ventalation (no doors ;D)  

Here are some pictures:

The first is a picture of the office building (to be moved where a old shed is being torn down) and the Sawdust bunker.




This one of the buildings  40x60 with concrete floor, 3 phase and cyclone system that works 8):



The second one is a 60 x 60.

Here is the mill that is in the second building.  I know you guys like old sawmills.



The old mill goes away and my mill is in that building.  

The first building will have trim saws, lumber storage and the new to me Woods 4 head moulder.

Loren,

Looks like my previous visit is now history. ::)  Will have to bring my camera for the next visit. Maybe you can keep up with the cutting speed riding in the chair.  :D :D :D

Will be nice to have the buildings (during winter months)........but sure liked the open air of your previous set up !!!

Do you get use of the 'chip bin' ?

Sunday it was really storming and i was cutting inside after dark 8) 8)

Tuesday night my girls and I were able to resaw my perlins after dark while it was raining outside.  I would never have been able to do this at the ranch.

Yes I get to use the bunker.(I already have)

Yes it has an auto clutch.  Boy am I glad.  I was starting to have problems with my right elbow.

I am still learning how to use the chain turner.  You can tear a log up if you are not careful.

On cants I use the two-plane clamp to turn.  It's faster.
