First Post:

I've been reading all that the Forestry Forums has had to offer for the last two years. I hope that what I have gleaned from my studies here will add to my success. We are due to pick up our Woodmizer on October 6. First time sawyers here, so we went with the LT50HDD35W-RA with all her bells and whistles. I would like to start a modest business with my grandson that he can take over when I'm no longer productive :D Thanks for all the hours of enjoyment reading your adventures. I look forward to sharing some of our own.

I run a woodmizer LT15 start mill, extra set of bed. I designed a mechanized feed system using #40 roller chain, fixed and idler sprockets, 1 HP AC electric motor, gear reducer, and reversible drum switch.  I can vary speed by using step pulleys if needed.  This really saved on time and effort.

Had to rethink the ac motor thing, they could not handle the duty cycle of constant start stop forward/reverse.  Thermal breakers would kick in about after 30 minutes.  Got a good deal on 3/4 Dayton dc with speed control forward reverse etc.  I designed a toothed cog and lift system so I can engage or can free the head and use it manually.  This comes in handy when I want to see how the blade FEELS, like say its feeling dull, or short in the tooth or just plain board!!

I have an LT40HD on order, should be here in a couple weeks.  I have used an old LT30 in the past.
