Well, I thought I had found a mill. We agreed on a price arranged to meet so I could saw a few boards, I pulled the cash outta the bank, paid a few minor expenses in preparation for a 12 hour round trip to go check it out & make the deal.

Offered to wire earnest money... etc etc. "No need.. if your say your coming it'll be here wait'n for ya."

He lied, waited till the day for me to leave and emailed me he sold it.

Yeah, come to think of it, I did mention how upset I'd be if I found the mill to be anything other than described & pictured.

Still look'n though... wear'n out craiglist & the farm bulletin.

Congrats, cntryby.

I almost pulled the trigger on a new mill a number of times, but finally found what I was looking for in used. I barely held out for 6 months! If I remember the OP date correctly, you hung on over 2 years. You are probably going to be kicking yourself for not getting one 18 months ago...  :D

I've been working on clearing out 15 to 20 acres and working around trees I knew I wanted to saw. Makes it tough. :-\  Slows down the process, shade hurts the garden... etc.

Man, I looked at so many used saws I can't count them all. Anything I saw that was in decent condition was priced to close to new to be worth it. Most of what I looked at was beat all ta %$^%$! One mill was bent so bad I could see it before I got out of the truck.

More than likely, when we get a boatload of other projects done, we'll build our own bigger, badder, mill. We already have a lot of the parts, we just don't have the place to build it. But now, we can use our own timber to build our own shop. We have several buildings to put up, so it should pay for itself fairly quick.

I cut a few boards today, had to make some minor adjustments to square things up a bit.

I guess the first thing will be to put a small roof on the unit itself, the permanent spot has to be cleared and a shed put up.

Ed call me last week saying some one from sw ga was picking up a mill and wanted to know how close i was to sw ga, i was asking him about getting a trailer package for my mill , Were you the one? He could not pronounce the town and had no idea, but said it was in the far sw corner of ga,  I told him it would cost me more in gas and time than it would to just fedex to me the parts,but i appreciated him trying to save me a buck or two. Congrats on the new mill

Yes, I was the one. I looked up the town he told me and it was on the other side of the state. He didn't say what you were wanting.

A guy just up the road from me has been wanting some extra track, but the timing was just wrong for him.

It only saved me a little under $200 to go get it vs shipping, but I've got more time than money. The wife was off so we made a road trip out of it. Man O man is she a trooper. We did 1627 miles in 27 hours, including the time spent with Ed.
