WM legs
« on: October 01, 2010, 01:57:05 PM »
The new legs are great for leveling up the mill, but one problem that they overlooked is that they loosen because of vibration.  This is what I did to fix that problem.

This is for the back leg.  I had to put it upside down for it to fit and cut a small notch in the square hole for the point of the nut.

One day working on snow and ice I loaded a log on the mill and mill, log and I slide about 6' and scared the devil out of me. So I fixed that by welding two nuts on the bottom of the legs.

Wow, a slip-n-slide Wood master!  Does that mean you can mill while sliding down a snow and ice covered hill, slide the lumber off, pull the mill back up to the top and do it all over again?  sounds like fun   :D :D

I've had my mill move like that a couple of times too, but only about 6-8 inches or so.

Your fix gave me an idea, and I think I'll drill a couple of holes in the jack plates and screw "inch" bolts into them.

This way, they're easily removed too.

Not after they're smashed a few times.....what about setting up on concrete or asphalt?

you could always take 6 boards with you with holes drilled in the boards in the right locations.

I try to avoid setting up on concrete or asphalt, but if I do, I put boards under the outriggers anyways,

I've never had the chance to set up on concrete or asphalt!

The closest I've come to that was setting up on a "Seasonal limited use gravel road".

Don't like setting up on concrete or asphalt nothing gives and you have to shim or be unsupported.

I have cut one time on concrete and had shin splints so bad that could not hardly walk next day, won't be doing that again. It might have been better if my boots were made for walking on concrete.
Two LT70s and to much other support equipment to mention.
