Picking up the new mill today
« on: July 10, 2011, 08:11:02 AM »
Picking up my new LT28G25 mill today at the Tupper Lake Woodsmans Show in N.Y.  I've been waiting a while to buy a mill almost bought last year but finances changed at the last minute. I'am hopeing the mill will fit inside the barn, that would be a really good place to keep it, if not the three days of cleaning the barn out needed to be done. I'll try and have the wife post some pictures of the the new kid with his new toy. Kevin

I have had mine for a year now, and I really like it. You will be impressed with the gas mileage too!

Good Luck Kevin. I used to work a few miles south of you. I think I know where you could buy some logs if you're ever in need.
Trees are good.

Thanks everyone, the mill fit into the barn better than expected, Kyle trained me at the show was great, so were the other guys from WM. Very helpful and patient. I'll probably have a lot of questions for you guys on the forum, right know I'm looking forward to the morning so I can start sawing. Thanks again Kevin
