MM your link translates to Cotton Picker Spindle Lube, $4.86/gallon and $9/shipping per order.  Is this what I want?   Hope so, I just ordered 8 gallons.

Haven't posted in a while, but I'm still here!  I cut a couple of 2+ inch slabs off this spalted red oak today.  Beautiful!

@grweldon . What species oak is that? I've cut quite a bit of oak but none any where near that dark.

I've sawed three days using the spindle lube cleaner. Keeps the blade clean with no noticeable undesirable side effects. Lots of products can keep the blade clean, but all have a down side.

I've noticed three good things with the spindle cleaner that I wasn't expecting. In the past my sawdust chute sometimes clogs, especially with a heavy water flow. The chute has not clogged once using the cleaner. Today it looked as clean when I quit as when I started. The second thing is my track rail on the outfeed side sometimes gets packed sawdust on it. Not so with the cleaner. Shiny clean at the end of the day. The third thing is I use less water, about two thirds less.

So thank you yellowhammer for the idea, and Magicman for finding someplace for us living outside the cotton belt to buy the stuff at a reasonable price.

And today's lumber, quarter sawed white oak.





My guess is grweldon's spalted red oak may not be spalt, but the natural color of blackjack oak which is in the red oak family.  Send me that beautiful second board so I can tell for sure. ;D

I have seen that in laurel oak before, a bottomland species.  I believe that some of that color is caused by bacterial infection.

Danny,

   How sound is the bacteria infected wood?

   I had a first today - went to an event 60 miles away and took a bunch of benches and assorted wood products for sale. The sales indicate it was actually a bust financially unless it produces some future sales. One HVAC guy was excited about the wood banded Spruce Mantel I took as a sample and indicated he installs and has been looking for a source for mantels and would be calling in the future. We will see if that happens. I hear lots of people say the same thing - sometimes it pans out, sometimes not. At the end of the day I checked out and the event coordinator asked me about sawing some pines for them. I think they are young folks trying to nearly live off the grid and short on cash. She offered to swap me pork for sawing. They raise pigs. I told her I would actually consider but they are 60 miles away. I gave her the name of a contact about 15-20 miles away with better equipment and prices than me. I also told her he has 7 kids and might be interested or not but in any case he would not be offended at the offer. I told her if it did not pan out to call me back. Another old lady I later heard owns a big old historical building I passed in the way in fell in love with a set of primitive, mortise & tenon style, curved chestnut oak benches I have been trying to sell as a set thinking they are perfect to sit around a fire pit. She thought they would be a good fit around a tree she has. We will see if she calls back. Stranger things have happened.


 These are the curved benches - overpriced for most customers in my area but somewhere there is a deep pockets customer even in my remote area.

Howard,

That that (Tom) I have cut has been green logs and the wood is sound, just discolored from the normal color.  It can be quite beautiful.

Larry, Iím glad the spindle cleaner is working well and nice looking QS boards. 8) The ability to saw drier, yet keeping the bands clean pays off in many ways, as you know.  If nothing else, not having to scrape sawdust off boards is big for me.  Also, having nice oiled bands that I can sharpen with no rust or pitch to clean off makes that easier, also.

It's a red oak. Grew behind my house until the city cut it down. I got the log and it sat outside in the weather for 18+ months. I assumed the spalting has turned it dark?

I have both laurel and blackjack oak at the farm but this came from the house, 30 miles away.  It is possible that it is a laurel but it isn't a blackjack for sure.

It was nice talking to you LD . Been grade sawing walnut mostly but took some slabs off this big nasty log today. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
Ld, you have any tips for clamping wide slabs? My mill has 35 1/2 in between guides but the clamp only goes out to 26 1/2in . When I slabbed that log I cut down 3/4 of the way then I needed to move my clamp and stops down so I flipped 180 and my clamp wouldn't go out far enough. Besides making a small face opening then flip 180 . Clamp and stops low and cut to the deck is there a better way?

Try cutting down about a third of the way, then flip 180 and let the weight of the log hold itself down.  Leave the slabs stacked up on themselves till you've got them all sawed.  ;)
