The Rippers work great for me.
I can buy 15 , 10 , or 5 at a time and they all cost the same.
I have never had one brake on me.

I asked and have been told a 2" won't fit on a 70. Do you know of someone who has done it? I would try them for sure.
I have some 2Ē blades to try on my mill, I havenít gotten around to it yet though

The carbide blades do well. BUT,  I sharpen 10 with my new diamond wheel and turn the feed up as I do with the reg blades. Put one on and cut like, Well you know.  ;D
I called NY. to talk to the resharp guys. They told me they get one, one blade every 5 or 6 weeks or so. to do. What!!
So I call Indy. They tell me I have to go slow, slow with the feed so the wheel will have time to cut the carbide.
So much for saving time sharpening. Where I save is in the cutting of the logs.
Now I have to do them all over again.  :D :D :D ;)
Good thing I have more boxes of them. ;D
And no more free shipping. The last box of 5 was $404.00.
Will see how this all pans out.

When you say slow, you mean like on setting #1?  How many passes to sharpen?  I've got a couple to try, interested to see the feedback.

I set speed at about 3 - 4 ish on my sharpener for the carbides and so far I only do one time around for the blade. You just barely need to "tickle" the tip and it is working great for me.  

Make  sure you use the proper diamond wheel too.
If you ain't livin on the edge you are takin up way to much room. Of course at my age if I get too close to that edge any more theres a good chance I may fall off.

5500 hrs on it not bad.


 

 

 
All better.

Sometimes you have to tilt to fit.

Is that for the up/down motor?
They came and got my tractor yesterday for some warranty work
They say I will have it back tomorrow. 
I'm not buying it got my logger friend coming with his log truck to load the deck in the morning.

Those are the power feed sprockets that pull/push against the chain.  I am on at least my third set.  

I love that Catís tilting ability Peter.  Thankfully that is what is working with me now.  That and the telescoping boom are life savers.

Put on a nice 24" x 12'long white pine today.
Milled out some 18" wide boards and some nice side lumber.
