Those benches are super nice wv I like to look for those " ugly" logs when I'm out and about we were cleaning ditches and took a few sycamores out and I saved a log that was 10-12" diameter 6' long but will take a 28" throat to saw it  ???  It will be a little narrow for a bench but hope to still make one with it that's what's fun about having a mill you can build stuff that you can't find at a store

F29,

   Yeah the big difference in making bench stock is instead of cutting in the middle of the curve to help straighten out the log you want to leave the curve in the middle (?) of the log. I guess if you want the curve on one end you'd cut it that way. That's the beauty of them - each one is unique and anybody buying or getting one for a gift knows they have the only one of its kind. When you can get 2-3 they ache to surround a fire circle.

   You can make a nice bench from an 8" slab so don't sell those small logs short either.

   Remember you can cut a log that is wider that 28 total width from side to side as long as the log itself is not over 28" and you can clamp in the middle of the curve and still swing first one then the other end into line during cutting.

Built a log bunk for the Logosol mill. Makes it easier to just roll them on the mill.

To cut the notches for the bunk. Set your Skil Saw at the desired depth and make multiple cuts. Then just knock out the waste with your hatchet.

 A short video changing the carriage on the Logosol. I found that by using two saws,one to cut the logs to cants and a second saw to cut the lumber saves time. You could have two carriages but as you see it only takes a minute to change. This saves a lot of file time, the saw that cuts the clean lumber stays sharp and the bars and chains will most likely last longer. If you have a helper he can sharpen while you keep cutting. Having two saws will let you keep milling if one gives you trouble also. I purchased a new 661 magnum and will try to post some video about the new saw.

  I have resisted buying a new all electronic saw for a while. I like the old Stihl 0 saws and having the ability to work on them. I had a lot of lumber to cut at a camp so I gave in a purchased a new 661 Magnum. When I got it home I went to install the studs to mount it on the Logosol but the cover has captive nuts. This is a nice feature as you can not loose a nut but it will not work with the Logosol setup. I had to change the studs and slightly modify a old cover to fit.

Letting you know about my new Stihl 661 Magnum. It is a 91cc saw with 7.2 H.P. The 046 magnum is 76cc saw with 6 H.P. In the cut you can not tell a huge difference. The new saw is quieter and seems to have more torque. Both saws have compression releases, you need that on a big saw. The new saw has a different style switch that I will show in another video. The new saw starts on the first pull nearly every time. The older saws usually do.

Starts on first pull after sitting 2 months! Stihl 661

I give a lot of credit to all the well done videos. It's not as easy as it looks!

I've broke those 8mm studs before on my logosol.  I now keep an extra set.  Also, I replaced the rubber strips on the carriage which tightened it up a bit.  I bought my M7 used.  When I put my 660 with 28" bar on the carriage, the tip of the bar is slightly below center.  I had to put a .030 shim on the front stud to bring it up to level.  Gary
