Just another day in Paradise
« on: July 18, 2018, 11:51:57 PM »
I figured its about time I started my own milling thread. Everyone please feel free to post in this thread.

So Western PA has been extremely rainy this year. This week has been no different.
I came out to the mill yard yesterday after 4.25 inches of rain in about 36 hours to find this

 

 
Luckily there was no damage to the lumber. So I took five minutes and got it cleaned up


 

 I set it aside to be sawn into firewood later and got back to sawing and finished the 4x17 beams I was working on

Very nice. I have equipment envy, yours is bigger than mine. I wanted a skytrack but couldn't find one in my price range that wasn't old and ragged out or had a ton of hours. We have had the opposite problem here in west Michigan  hot and humid with little to no rain in weeks. I'm working in a dust bowl over here.

If you were closer busy Beaver we could swap equipment back and forth :D
I'd love to get set up with an edger.
How's you're new equipment working out for you?

There are definitely days I could use more muscle in the lifting dept . Today for example I had to split a stack of walnut that my bobcat wouldn't lift. I could get it to lift about 2ft but no more. I made a flat stack, no stickers 5ft x 4ft of 11 and 12ft 5/4 and had to scramble to split it so I could get it to the grader in time to get a check this week. My equipment has been pretty good so far.  The mill has had some bugs but with the help of the forumites and woodmizer it seems to be running smooth now. I had some intermittent problems that seem to have been solved with a new ECU. Nothing that's kept me from running, just some hiccups now and then. Anybody who ever turned wrenches knows it's the intermittent problems that are the hardest to solve. When something is flat out broken it's usually pretty easy to diagnose.  The edger has already saved me a ton of time . I don't know how the gas ones are for power but the diesel doesn't even sound like its breaking a sweat feeding it 5/4 walnut or 4/4 hickory and hard maple.

Today was an almost wide head day!
I maxed my mill out. The customer wanted a live edge slab from his log.


 
Got that done and it started raining again.
And I didn't feel like getting soaked bucking logs so I realigned my laser that has been a tad off.



 
I believe I got this idea from @ElectricAL
It is the quickest most effective way I've found.

Then I got the Bibby attachment permanent on my mill


 

 
It really speeds up blade changes.

I sell them cheap for firewood. 
I sell them bundled just as they are 
And precut by the pick up load.
My slab cutting rack and a 3' bar make short work of it.

I'm finally getting some logs in now. It's been so wet here I have not been able to get logs in for a couple months. My stash was getting really low. 
Now I'm getting hammered. I had three loggers contact me this week. 



I'll be getting a triaxle load in tomorrow.

Nice rack! I need to build myself something like that. I have been sliding them off my mill into a pile and using the grappler on my bobcat to pile them into a mountain of mess. Really need to do something about that.

Sawed a bunch of live edge slabs the other day. I've been having more and more requests for them. 
Anyone ever saw apple?
This was my first time. Not sure how they will dry. It was either slabs or firewood.
And I didn't feel like splitting firewood :D

Yup that's my firewood cutting rack. I was unloading a log truck today and had customers waiting. I don't even remember backing into it. I never felt it in that big machine. Guess I'll be building another one.

I got a good bit of sawing done last week.
It was hot and humid but it wasn't raining so I took advantage of it. I picked some of the smaller logs out for 1x10's

 
It's a good day when you get 1x12x14 out of the flitch pile 8)

When that shed was built it was for a lt30.
And it was only going to be a hobby. I was only going to have to shovel sawdust once a year. Well things changed now I saw full time. I don't wanna know how many tons of sawdust Ive shoveled.

Ever have one of those days?
Seems I couldn't get nothen accomplished today.
I had an order for some 2x8x18
And some 1x10x10


 
The 18 foot log went crazy on me and I had to dig another out. 

And 2 of the 10 foot logs were full of shake. 

But hay....just another day in Paradise :)

Thanks Peter. I'm aware. There was a big ugly knot that I didn't want in the face of every board. I knew it was going to go sideways on me but I didn't think it would go that much. I left the can't an inch wide to edge out the crook. But that wasn't enough.
He is going to use them as runners on a hay wagon so a little crook wouldn't be an issue. But 4" :o I don't think he would be happy with that. I know I wouldn't.

I've been swamped with orders. Things looked like they might slow down a little and I could finally get started on my sharpening shed! 

Nope. had a guy roll in with a couple loads of nice ash he wants sawn. He says he has about 5000 feet down and ready to bring over. It's been a good year for me
I guess I'll just keep buying blades if I don't get my equipment up and running ;D

Got a hole chiseled out for my sharpening shed. Looks like I might get to it here shortly.

Your land looks similar to mine as far as having to carve space out if the hills. Thankfully my ground is mostly sand so not much mud. I do get some areas of liquified sand though. It looks solid but when you step in it ya sink up to your calf. It's what we call mud season in Michigan right now it goes from October until June most years. There is generally a few ice seasons mixed in between as well. The key here is to flatten out the ruts right before the ground freezes or else your stuck dealing with lumpy frozen ground for a couple months.

Just a little soggy! :D
The ytd precipitation for here is just over 57 inches so far. It has been non stop rain here. 

I've had mud since last November. Usally I'll smooth things up before it freezes. Last winter it never really froze here. 
It's just been mud mud mud. 

I only got my hole dug because it didn't rain for 36 hours prior.  8) it was nice not having a day and a half of rain!
The sun even came out the one day  :)

I got started on the sharpening shed today. Not too bad for one guy working alone all day.



 

I did have my dad come out for 10 minutes to set the wall.

But they go for a pretty penny usually.  I actually scooped one up yesterday at a decent price.  1991 Lull 644.  She needs a little TLC but overall a decent machine and it will serve me well.

yea. the ones I keep seeing start about 23k. I can't justify that. I think I will get a 3.5 ton mini excavator. it will be more versatile for me. I already have 28 hp Kubota with loader so that works ok. just need to build a grapple for it.

All the walls aren't even up and there's already stuff hanging on the walls :D

 

It was kinda slow going today. I left all my wood piles uncovered last night and then got snow/rain/ice last night. Then it warmed up a little and made a really muddy mess. Sorry no progress pics today. it was snowing pretty good when I quit for the day.

Here is one from where she was sitting.  Same style as yours with the main carriage that slides as the first stage of the boom.  It does have the tilt head so I am going to make or find a grapple for it and use that hydraulic feature to keep from chasing logs around.  Needs a tire, foam filled of course, but other than that it's just some small stuff here and there to deal with.  5,xxx hours so for the age not bad at all.

That sliding carriage is handy. 
Telehandlers can be tricky to scoop logs off the ground with. I want to get a farma grapple to use on mine eventually.
