I haven't posted anything since I've got my mill back in July.Just thought I'd take a second to let everyone know I'm loving it. Its exceeded my expectations. I couldn't have been more satisfied with Cook's Saw than I am. Very friendly people with alot of knowledge.

I've had an MP32 for 19 years and still really enjoy it, too. That's quite a "shed" you have there.

Sawbriar- Great picture of your mill.  Glad to hear of your success with the new mill.  I have the same unit for a few years now.  I am equally as impressed and satisfied with Cook's and their operation.  I must admit, I am envious of you spacious undercover location.  Good luck!  Hope to hear more from you in the future.  GF

I'm envious of that roof too. It's actually a customer's barn that were sawing in at the moment. Maybe I'll get some pics of my mill shed when it's complete.

I have an 05 model MP32, good mill, helpful folks at Cooks.  You were probably close enough to just pick yours up at the factory. Did you get power feed?
Most everything I enjoy doing turns out to be work

Yep, drove about five hours and came home with it. And yes it's power feed, power up/down.

Sawbriar- I have made a few modifications to my MP-32 that have helped me operate a little more efficiently when working by myself as well as when I have a helper.  You can see pictures of these modifications in the FF Index.  Scroll down to "Sponsor News" and then click on Cook Saw MFG.  They are listed under modifications.  There might be some ideas that can help you as well.  Most are pretty simple builds.  GF
