OHBucknut, I hit a log support the first time I ran the mill.  I cut halfway then it before I realized.  Luckily it was just at the very end.  Just kissing the thing probably ok.  Cutting halfway thru, probably fatal to the blade.
I just read your info on your profile page.  Be careful milking Lumber.  You can get splinters.

at least I got it outta the way early

Trust me you didn't - it keeps coming back when you least expect it!!  There are two types of sawyers, those who try to saw off a piece of their mill, and those who LIE about not doing so...;D

Thanks for the heads up on the splinters. I since quit milking and started milling. Lol
