Hello Im New
« on: August 04, 2005, 06:58:55 AM »
Hello people. Just joined your forum. I am a farmer in Southern Maryland and we have had a circular mill working here since the 1930's. Its nice to have access to people who share the same interests.

Here's my first question. I need a new saw, (the one I have is a Hoe grandad bought right after WW2), and am looking at BH Payne, Pacific Hoe and Simonds. Anybody running a Payne saw. The other two mfrs I know of but I have no info on Payne.

Thanks
I love Farming, Logging, Sawmilling, Fishing, and Hunting.

 Welcome BBK.  8)

  There are several Members that have larger Circle Mills. We also have a Member from Menominee Saw . His handle is "Peach". He's a factory Saw Doc.

  Do a search in the archives for New Saw Blade. Someone here bought one not too long ago.  Good Luck

Welcome BBK, to the left you will see one of our sponsors, Menominee Saw. Give them a call and ask to talk to Peach. Tell him you are a Forestry Forum member and then proceed to pick his brain. Peach has hammered and repaired over 23,000 circle blades in has years as a saw filer/ Doctor. Hes your answer man.  :)
Just call me the midget doctor.

Welcome to the Forum.  I'm running a Payne.  I've had Simonds, Hoe and Payne.  I had some problems with the Hoe, but they were resolved. 

For the price, the Payne is a good buy.  I haven't had any problems with the Payne, and it seems to be well made, for the most part.  I did have one that cracked, but you can get that with any manufacturer, according to my saw doc.  I think the difference is about $400. 

I used to run an F pattern, 54", 50 tooth 7-8 guage saw.  But, I've changed over to a B pattern, 46 tooth, 6-8 guage saw.  It is much stiffer, and has a gullet capacity about 1 1/2 times that of the F pattern.  The stiffer saw works better in the dense hardwoods.  I can saw hickory at the same rate as oak without saw flex.

Just up the road from you in PA.

Welcome BBK!  Stick around and jaw with us for a spell.  You'll find that the folks here are friendly and helpful, and you just might be able to answer a question or two yourself.  Some of us have just moved in for the long haul. ;D
