I have put off doing the re sharp program due to my new sharpener. And after my recent post i should have that thing working by this evening.

This is the last walnut log out of two nice trees I recently harvested on the farm.  I had two semi sharp blades left hence why the feed rate was so slow. I made a short video showing the days work.

Nathan,

What do you think about those Turbo blades?
If you are enjoying what you are doing,  is it still work?

Nathan,

I didn't care much for them, maybe cause they are for high hp mills and mine is 25hp. doubt I will try them again,
