Whatcha NOT Sawin' ???
« on: May 22, 2015, 11:21:21 AM »
 I have something to get off my chest.  I wasn't sawing much in the last week or so.  In fact not at all for a while.  But I did use some lumber. 


  

And I did use my tape measure.


  

And I got my Logrite dirty tending the camp fire.


  

Promising to try to be better now.  To try to make up for things here is 2600 bf pine from yesterday.

They say that even an honest man will tell a lie about the size of his fish and the BF that he sawed today, but you provided pics for proof.  Good work!     Regards, Clark

Sealark,

    I didn't know it was lying when fish were involved. I thought it was mandatory to "embellish" a little.

TT,

    Congrats on the fish. Looks like you had earned the break.

Everything,  no time to saw this year thus far,  (No logs or calls either)
Close to having sold-off all my inventory.
Between work and family (kids home from college,
 planning a new home). I'm flat out with no saw dust in the near future.
Still glad to be able to visit here

I'm not sawing using my bandsawmill.
There's nothing wrong with it I'm just having fun making wide thick slabs on my chainsawmill!

Terrific
Just curious how many hours you put in to get 2600 ft? Did you have a helper? Do you run an edger? What dimensions of lumber?
Just curious because I have the same exact mill as you and busted my but the other day to get 1200 feet done in 8 hours
