Yukon men, Stan Zurray CS milling vid
« on: October 29, 2018, 05:52:34 PM »
I'm not sure how to upload a YouTube vid but Stan Zurray of Yukon men just put out a good short YouTube vid on CS milling with a 40 year old sthil.
It seemed almost effortless for him to rip lumber. The saw was doing 99% of the work pulling itself through the log amazing to watch.

One of the secrets to chainsaw milling is to set-up the log going down hill slightly so that the weight of the saw/mill will help push the bar through the wood.  He has a pretty good angle on that log so gravity is your friend.  I actually did the same thing with my manual band saw mill.  the track is level side to side, but just slightly inclined lengthwise so gravity helps feed the head unit into the log.

Wow, that log must be at quite an angle for the saw to walk through it like that.
I like that he allows the saw to cool down run for about 30 seconds after the cut.

   I really think it is neat the way he reconstructs the log from the stickered flitches to air dry using the slab as a natural rain cover.

Roland and Hilltop thank you for posting video - nice to get it out there more. Got a notification from the posting and glad to know about the Forestry Forum as most of what I know about logging and chainsaws is from just using them and that often leaves a lot to be desired even at 69 years old. Got a YouTube Channel under my name (Stan Zuray) and it has a lot of bush living stuff on it if anyone interested (minus the TV drama).
We mess with logs and trees often and here's a picture of a fishwheel that is made entirely (almost) out of forest products - river logs for raft, 100 peeled poles for baskets, and chainsaw boards and timbers for towers and chutes. Great site. Stan

Welcome to the Forum Stan.  I watched all the interview videos(1-6) on your You-tube channel.  You've had quite an interesting life, to say the least.  I'll be interested in your perspective on things.

Welcome to the Forestry Forum, Stan.  Just curious as to why you settled in Tanana.  Possible because of the confluence of the Yukon and Tanana Rivers? 

Anyway I always enjoy watching your shows.  :)

Stan,

    Welcome to the FF. Great to hear from a real celebrity. ;D

    Down here we like to watch the Alaska shows (I personally don't care for the Fake Bush people) while my BIL in Anchorage says he and his friends all watch Swamp people. I haven't asked him yet if he keeps up with Shelby.

    Take care and be careful out there.

Replying to 3 recent posts:

Btulloh - Internet is all over Alaska now. Urban areas have cable and the rural villages have large scale satellite or the newer microwave. Real bush areas can use a small dish HughesNet or similar system which I use all summer at my fish camp. Know a number of people that have no grid power, water, sewer, telephone but got $60/month internet. It's often real slow and limited (YouTube will not stream) but it's much wanted communication. More and more young people don't watch or own TV, they watch YouTube.

Magicman - I came to Tanana because it was the closest village to an bush area 40 miles north of it where I got dropped off by a bush plane in 1973 (lived there 11 years). It was Open to Entry Homestead Federal land but closed shortly after I landed. I got 5 acres there and still go out that way each winter trapping/hunting.

WV Sawmiller - I really enjoyed working on the TV show and with the great cameramen and people that did the film work. It was a small production company in NY and they all were like friends and took care of us I felt. Much different than the normal from what I've learned. The cameramen that went out in the bush with us were world class outdoorsmen and hardly got in our way and often helped break trail etc, The guy that was with me the first couple years had climbed Everest twice.
Shows are all different - the realer ones often get filmed real and not any script but once that footage gets to the big networks and they do their drama editing we are often portrayed in interesting ways. I have learned that is the price of getting in front of a national audience and from the beginning I looked at it as a way to educate people nationally on ethical uses of fur animals (trapping) and natural resources. I think we changed some minds positively. Some shows are 100% scripted and even don't live where they are filmed or are filmed in a different place.
It was a good part time job and hardly affected my lifestyle. Enjoyed learning about the whole industry - many of the cameramen had worked with big name sports and celebrity figures (Trump Apprentice) etc. and very interesting hearing their stories. Stan

Video was made last spring before the fish were migrating in good numbers. Just milling some lumber for some shacks we were building for housing at our fish camp. River was clear of ice and I was boating to the camp which is 40 miles upriver from the village where the family spends the winter. I'm at camp for 4 months steady each year.
