Looking forward to hearing and seeing more of your mill and your projects. Iam interested in the wide cut ones they make. I want to go visit there operation when he has a 145 there. Glad you got yours going at your site.

The first project is to cut 30 2x10x12' in order to pour footings for the house.  Have the trees cut, but wouldn't you know it, the tractor lost a wheel today due to a wheel bearing failure.  Just gotta smile...  I did cut one dandy looking 2x10 today though.
Just getting started!

Just an update... I am cutting 12' Noble Fir logs (the trees were once a christmas tree farm) and are now about 40' tall.  Cutting them down yields 2-3 eight to 12 foot logs suitible for milling. The project went from 2x10's to 1x10s, and I am getting about 8-10 boards out of a log.

I have cut up 3 logs so far, and I have some beginner thoughts.  First, I am not a spring chicken, (pushing 60).  The good news, is I have a Kubota tractor, which I can load logs on the mill with.  It has been a huge learning curve just to get 3 logs milled, but with each log, it gets easier.

The mill itself seems to be running real good, and the boards are straight and true.  I just didn't expect the manual labor involved with milling, but I told my wife the other day, that I am going to get in shape doing this.  Not a bad thing. 

So far, so good with this mill.  I would not hesitate it to anyone looking to buy an entry level mill.
Just getting started!
