The hard part like I told 4x4 on the phone, is to stop cutting wood and set your self up to be more efficient


I agree totally.  That's why my signature is "Take steps to save steps." :D It takes effort to stop and try to streamline.  It's not easy.  

I was talking about edger dump tables to a fellow who had seen one rigged on a hinged plywood table top for his edger outfeed.  He had a rope tied from the rising side of the dump table to a couple pulleys back to the front of the edger. When he wanted to dump the edgings and boards in the return conveyor, he just pulled on the rope and the side of the table came up and the stuff slid off.

@ Peter    The hard part of stopping to rearrange is Id make my efficiency worse three or four times before I lucked into a configuration thats an improvement
 
I'm learning quickly that this requires both study AND experience......right now I can't get out of my own way.

If you knew how many if my "ideas" were total failures, you'd belly laugh.  I figure its like most things, try it, change it, try it again, and so on.  

Oh, reading this Forum will help a lot.  There are absolutely top notch folks on this Forum that don't mind helping others.  Certainly I've sucked up as much information as I could and adapted what I can.  Kudos to them all, and keep on keeping on.

The other thing YellowHammer, Is we all have a different market. Like what you do would be hard to sell up here. Not much money up here for your market. 
Some wood would sell but, I don't think I could make a living.
Everyone is spending money for high taxes, wood, oil, to stay warm, Winter clothes to stay warm. Fixing the trucks with all the salt eating them.
On and On.  :D

So your setup would not be the same as mine. I think we all can get some ideas from each other.
Like you and others only cut 8' logs with a few width sizes. I start with 70 sizes 8' to 16' and go up from there.  :D ::) ::)
It's all good.

Good day with the northeaster going by to heat treat some blades.

then set.

When I get all them set, I'll sharpen them.

4 more boxes to go, and some new ones,

4 new boxes of 7s always like to keep a bunch ahead.
4x4 the next time you stop by I have some 1 7s 55 you can have,
I ran them one time and did not like them.

What is it about the 1 1/2 X7'sX55  that you don't like?


They will catch bark, wood, all kinds of junk. I was always cleaning stuff out. With the 1 blades, the junk would come out.
I don't know why Wood Mizer did not make wider wheels for the bigger horse mills I know the 70 has bigger diameter wheels, but, I think there no wider than a lt15.


[4x4 how wide are your wheels]


No machine Lawg Dawg, Just a set of torches.

And yes, I don't throw anything away. slider

The shop is used Leeb .
