Country6543,I meant what is the lumber going to be used for from your mill? We have a small show in Bangor Maine once every 2 years. I went to it both days so I could see it all.

Magicman, thank you, I have read alot of your posts and you, Sir, are a wealth of information. Yourself and Bibby are two that I look forward to speaking with in the future.
Cfarm, Well, I have a laundry list of stuff to do. Kinda funny, I get a mill and Dad puts his order in, then my brother jumped on the bandwagon.  As for me, Make board fence, extend current deck, I really want a to make a board and batten horse barn for a couple of my daughter's horses.  I love the look. I have enough room that I will never run out of projects and as it seems my dad and brother are itching also. 
Lumber wise, well as of now dead ash is very plentiful but this is a get it while you can because it will be gone for good. Oak and hickory are also plentiful in my area along with the wonderful Honey Locust.  And I know your next question, what about the thorns.  Well I have a grapple and while the logs are still hooked the the drag tractor, I grab ahold with grapple and the tractor pulls the log though. Doesn't get em' all but gets alot and there bearable.   I really love honey locust, hard, strong, plentiful and semi rot resistant.

     Country, welcome to the Forum.  I was at the Paul Bunyan festival too.  I looked at the Timbery mills, and I admit I was impressed with them.  They look like a well thought out, well designed small mill.

It looks like I'm a little late on the comments for the Timbery Sawmill. I have not checked in for a while. I live in NW Ohio and bought a Timbery280 last Feb. Same as the 285 except no trailer. I mounted mine on my own trailer and added hydro log turner/ lift system I made from scratch which made the unit faster to work with as well as on my back.
  I looked around a lot for my size of trees to decide what size I could get by with starting out as well as my investment. So far I'm happy with this mill and bought it from a dealer that sold WM saw mills also. My blades came in a WM box and they sharpen them also. The mill is not a high production mill but I can saw a 24" dia x12" foot log in less than an hr. I like the many features and the design that was thought into it. The 20hp Subaru eng., runs nice, the built in tac/hr meter works well and also tells you when to change the oil. You stand to the right, the saw dust go out the left on the other side away from your face. You can see the blade from where you control as you cut with complete detail. This saw was well thought out and made simple. You can add any length of bed sections and the are all ready welded together. Push the handle turns the water feed/clutch/rpm as you push it through the log. I dont understand why people that have them don't show them on you tube, may be there's not enough out there yet. The drive belt runs in 1 pulley as the blade runs over the top ( I was told WM does the same). In any case it has many good , easy to replace features. When I bought mine, I was not sure of the ceramic's that hold the blade (most band saws use barrings ), so I bought an extra set. They are not even showing any ware and have not had to adjust them at all. The blade does not run hot and it more quiet running that the barring types. It's just a good manufactured mill but not for a full time production mill yard.
  I live in a farming area and as many trees are done away with for water ways and such, I thought I'd try this as a way to make a little money as well as save some of the trees from going to fire wood. Many people wont the slab wood to saw for fire wood as it is easy to handle. The nice thing about this mill, is mine was built in IN., in the USA and the service for them is outstanding. That about as important as the mill it's self.

i just bought the ezboardwalk 40 sawmill and like it really well. i like the angle head. it really works feeding the blade into the log. edward seems like a good fellow too. nice to know if you have trouble. i would have no trouble buying the jr. it will fit most farmer needs. i also bought his sharpner. does a good job.

Hi Bery
I am a fairly new to this site and I just ordered my M285 (25 hp) due to arrive mid to late May/14. I bought the mill for my own use as well as paying for it with some work outside of my day job. So anyways are you still happy with yours, any pros or cons and have you done any upgrades to yours?

Hello to Everyone from the hills of Durango CO! I'm a soon to be newbie sawyer.
Looks like I'll be ordering my first mill... a Timbery280, by mid next week. I got a guy within 40 miles of here that sells them and can get me a 280 w/ a 25hp engine, w/ a 4' extension track for a reasonable price, while saving me about $300 on shipping.
I got my self a 16' logging trailer with a 12000b winch and plan on doing milling for myself primarily for myself, and likely to sell a bit on the side, once I get things rolling. Not to be a full-time job, as that'd be teaching music. I guess I sound like a lot of folk here who mill for themselves and are looking for a little side income as well.

Been reading on this forum for a few weeks and really enjoy the nice folk here. Glad to be joining, and learning as much as possible from everyone.
cheers!

Hello and welcome to the Forestry Forum, DgoDrummer and rich414.  Am I understanding that both of you are in Durango?  I have long ago lost count of how many times that I have passed through your city.  move_it
