TK had trouble with setwork accuracy on the 2000 so they added a flow restrictor to slow the head down.  I imagine your 1600 uses the same parts as the 2000 and also needs the restrictor.  It's likely already been installed on your mill, but I would check with the previous owner or TK to make sure.  TK will send it to you no charge.

Good to know.  Thanks.

hamptonlawyer, you are one lucky sawyer! I just got my TK catalog in the mail, and I might be in trouble... too many goodies to look at and not enough understanding from the wife ;)

I was looking at the TK 1220 and thought "this is perfect"...
...then I read about the 1400 and was like "oh I need this...it has this that will make... and this would work well...",
..then I flipped to the next page and saw the TK 1600... ;)

Again nice grab on that mill. Post some pictures when you get a chance.

A few pictures of the mill in its old home.  I'll have to post some more later once I have it set up and milling here in SC.

Awesome pics. Thats a nice shed to boot. In the colder months, a simple tarp or canvas covering on the one end will stave off some of the chill. Again, well done!

Hamptonlawyer, That is an awsome find, I am envious. I really want one of those mills, but I have to be patient. Anyway, congratulations on your new mill.

That is the first time that I have heard of a shed coming with the mill!  Good score!

I almost bought a TK  1600 , but I chose a larger hydro mill from Logmaster.   I have their LM4.  I don't see any mention of Logmaster in any forums  I don't think    a lot folks know of them or own one.  I've had mine going on five years and have no complaints.
 Lots of power and tork, 30 inch band wheels,  30 inches between the guide bearings.  24 ft cut length,  photo electric set works,   two rolling toe boards.  Blades are  229 inches   , inch and a half x 7/8   .055.   51hp Perkins diesel.   I've cut a lot of white oak, pecan and hickory.  It handles it no problems as long as I keep my feed speed moderate to slow.  I have expieranced (mostly with red oak)  Kants that bow upward and pinch the blade in the middle of the unfinished cut  and spun the clutch.  Didn't seem to hurt it as I caught quickly and I know to watch for it now.
 Still running the original clutch.    Pete Chesapeake ,Virginia.

Welcome to the forum.
Maybe start a thread on your Logmaster and show some pics. We like pics, and a video if that could be possible.
You are right, we don't hear much about the Logmaster mill.
But a search on Logmaster will bring up previous threads where they are discussed.
