Canadian Fever
« on: July 04, 2019, 08:08:02 PM »
 What came first, the board or the sticker? I think stickers.





I managed to come down with a nasty case of cancer and wanted to re-invent myself. Major sell off of old equipment and then a few updates. Below is the mill being setup at it's new home.





And moving a small load of fibers from the old mill location.





I plan to post more as time progresses.

Sorry to hear.  Hope you get through it.  Hopefully the new saw will bring a little joy and help you through.

BTW-  Did you have an auction recently?  With a Berg mill being sold?

That is not what I wanted to hear when I opened this.  I wish you the best in your journey.

Puffergas, I'm a two time cancer survivor.  Good luck on that journey.

Where is the new mill home?  How do you like the swingblade?  Quick work on stickers I bet :D , smart sawyers would say the sticker.

Thanks everybody!

RobS, yes. You must have been at the sale.

Nativewolf, yes I like the swing saw. I started out with an old circle saw then two band mills and now back home with a circle saw. The old mill was at my place and the new mill is at Dad's.

Let see if this video works:

Spend too much time running for tools or what have you when doing maintenance. Have this old trailer that was asking to become the repair trailer. I'm thinking tools, vise, torches, small crane and be able to load a generator, air compressor or a welder.





The lumber has been turning out nice.





Next log up:





Here is a short video about the 114:



And some action cam stuff:



You all keep on rolling !

A fast look at the fork adapter in this video. At the end and on the trailer. The video is less than 2 minutes.

Steiger Startup:



This is a longer video. It is the first time using the forks on the 114.



I think I'll work on a lap siding video next. Do I sticker lap siding just like lumber or is there a different stickering method for lap siding?

Later.   :)
