If they are in NY today then I guess I'll be seeing them tomorrow in Pa.
I am only 40 min from Pa Border 30 mile north of Binghamton NY They probably took them 20 mins as the crow flies I kind wish the geese would stay and the *danged crows would leave, they come to the city in the winter and crap all over everything and tear the trash bags open all winter and there is no open season on them in the city. LOL

Got another load of spruce today Got the last of the white pine loaded onto the mill and went to start the mill and all I got was sparks jumping out of the motor slide must be I have a bad ground.I will move the ground wire from the saw frame to the bolt on the motor mount.

Larry, do you find the need for 2 axles? Mine is going to have a 24' bed and I was only planning 1.
I knew what I thought I meant.

From what I can tell with our syp  is that a slightly dull blade will leave wavy cuts, knots will definitely  wave even with a sharp blade of you don't go slow. I usually get more then 400 bf but am also usually cutting 2x material. I thinking I get between 700 and a thousand but if there is sand or dirt in the logs it drops significantly. Just my 2 cents

When I built my mill trailer I put tandem axles also, mainly for stability and ride. A single axle tends to bound where as a tandem just seems to float going down the road. I feel it will make it a lot easier on the mill. When Larry goes down 81 and 95 he will appreciate what I mean especially when going over every bridge overpass. been running that route over 25 years and it never gets any better  Jack

  Crusarius, I have a 12 foot enclosed trailer with the torsion suspension and it works great. 20 years so far but having owned tandem equipment trailers they just ride so much better, they just float over the bumps. My feeling is why not help keep our mills from getting kicked around. might keepem more accurate. by the way you and Larry both have been doing a super job on your mill builds

That is who I got my plans from but I made it wider 36" and I also made so it would lift 36" tall and a few other modifications.

i whish I had done the same I stayed with the plans and now have a pecan log and sycamore that is the 36" range I will have to do a little chain sawing before I can cut them. My intentions  were to build a mill so to cut bowl blanks and not have to split the logs with a chain saw. But as it always happens it gets bigger and friends what something now I saw lumber and have plans to build a kiln before summer ends

bwstout, I also have plans on building 1-2. Just got a 1964 2010 John Deere Industrial tractor with a front loader to help lift the logs on to the mill and move the logs around

Hi everyone, I have a few videos of a band saw blade sharpener I built while I was recovering from knee replacement and a heart attack. I have also been updating the saw mill I will posting more videos of the upgrades and some jigs I built for cutting beveled siding I have been busy the last couple of weeks.

 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FkPuorYKcf4
 
and  the second video is of it sharpening a blade with it.

Thanks Darrel, Here is another video of siding jigs I built a couple of weeks ago they cut 8" siding 1/4 x 3/4 they are real simple to build they are complements of JosalJo Won on youtube he shows how to build them. I have cut over 200 pieces of siding with them so far with no problems. My neighbor liked the siding I cut so much he wants me to to cut 1000 sq ft of hemlock for a house he is restoring
