  Dan,  We have not heard much as to the progress of the milling operation.  How are things going?  Remember if you have any needs touch base if I can help.  I hope all is going well with the big boy toy. ;) ;)

Hi Frank, and thanks for thinking of me. The reason there hasn't been a progress report, is, that there hasn't been any progress. :(   I've just been extremely busy, lately. I leave for work before daylight, and get home after dark with my butt dragging along behind me. I've also been on 24/7 standby for most of the past month, so the weekends are pretty much shot, too.
It is frustrating, but I have to keep reminding myself that I'm way ahead of my projected schedule, since I didn't expect to even have a mill till late in the summer. It is still awfully hard to see that thing sitting there, when I can't do anything with it.

Went fishing in Apalachicicola river in Florida and afterward stopped in Chattahoochee to get a bite to eat but didn't stay(children were askeered) cause everyone looked like his profile --locals said it was something in the water !!! :D :D  Fishing sure was good though !!

Ackshully, Jeff, I do, except for the beard. These days, when I trim all the grey out of it, it's solid white. ::)

Bud Man, ya shoulda stopped by. I have heard that the fishing is pretty good around here, but I rarely get a chance to try it. I do have a little boat, but it's never been in the water.
There's a coupla good places to eat in C'hoochee. The little seafood place on the side street, that serves on paper plates is the best.

When I got my first mill, I set it up in a building 18' x 50'.  I placed a door at each end 10' x 10' and a front door 30'  x 18'.   I located 2 mercury vapor lights at each end (inside and out) as well as two in the middle (one inside and one outside).   That way, when I came home from teaching school all day :P I could work half the night sawing lumber if I wished. I wished all the time.   8) 8) 8) 8)
