FF Mighty Mite mill owners convention in Alaska
« on: August 28, 2017, 05:27:21 AM »
100Percent of FF Mighty Mite owners showed up. Both of us! I drove to Ak and stopped by and saw Alaska Les. He and and his wife were wonderful host. He has a really nice layout and lots of REALLY nice spruce to saw. Some HUGE Cottonwood and Birch also. He was catching Salmon and got a Spruce Grouse as we were riding around in his UTV.
His mill is a nice mill and will cut 26' long(I think) Diesel powered. Very nice layout

Yes, in a 26' Class C motorhome in 1997.  The total trip was a bit over 13K miles.

Les's was a factory hydraulic and very well built. Mine is the smaller model. Its all hydraulic now. Turning logs and clamping by hand didn't last long.

Hello all;
 So if I own a Mighty Mite Band sawmill, can I join the group ?
 Mine is a Generation ll. Built in 85.
 Just brought it home last week.
 Ordered a manual for it today.
 The folks at Mighty Mite have been super helpful . Especially considering I didn't buy this mill new from them.
 I will be sawing to build our home in Delta Junction , Alaska. We currently live in Glennallen .
 I'm having some troubles uploading pics of my mill to this site so far. Ill keep working on it.
You don't have to worry about brown bear when your power saw is running . But you better have something big with you if it's not .
 If your not wearing your hard hat when you need it. Well.
