Thanks everybody.

Got to get sawing some stickers so that will give me a bit of practice.  This summer I plan to re-side the house and figure if I can get some SYP sawn into 1" stock and let it dry for a couple of months I can lap side it later on and not have to try and sticker beveled wood.  I made a trade with a neighbor to saw a couple of white oak logs in exchange for a 20 ton tag trailer that is going to be the frame base for my forwarder trailer that I am building to set behind the skidder, but I want to get a few hours on her before I bring it over there.  After a bit I will start to advertise some lumber and sawing services but want to at least look like I know what I am doing first.   :D

Nice cedar there. Do you have much ERC your way. Congrats on the  mill.

X Logger - I would not say we have a tremendous amount, but it is around.  There is no mill that buys it so I am going to try and see if I can make a go of marketing some.

good luck with the new rig

I like the muffler on that mill, you could put an extension on it , pointing down, and blow the sawdust off the boards as you run the mill back and forth

TomL - Thats a great idea, will have to see what I can rig up for sure. 

Nice!  Was the light on it when you bought it?

GA Mtn Man - yes the light was already on it, and there is a plate light on the manual set works scale.  I think I am going to put a couple more LED's on it as the light was really helpful last evening when finishing up and drooling at my handi work!!  I bought it off an amish family that does not use electricity so everything has 12V lights on it. 

Congrats on the new mill. That thing looks to be in brand new shape by the picture.

Thanks Alan - it actually has a little over 1300 hours on it, the previous owner bought it in December 2012 and did not use it much for about a year, then ran it last year pretty regularly until last fall when they bought a Cooks AC-36.  The previous owner has a nice little mill operation going that he only began to operate full time last fall, but has built up a decent business.
