Welcome to the forum. There are several guys that are not that far from you. They might be on here in a bit and give you a invite. You can also go to the top of a page to the members map and see how many are close to you.
Two LT70s, Nyle L200 kiln, 4 head planer, 30" double surface planer, Lucus dedicated slaber, Slabmizer, and enough rolling stock and chainsaws to keep it all running.

Red, welcome to the forum!  If you want to make the trip to the Missouri side of the border, I run a Norwood MX34 20 miles south of Joplin.  It would make a nice day trip for you on your bike.  I salvage a lot of oak on the mill, so it would be pretty close to the use you have in mind.  Send me personal message and we can set up a time.  I'm always looking for a little free help  :D.

   Hey welcome to the forum!
Another from oklahoma
   I haven't been on here much lately, busy busy
And I still haven't got a mill yet
Seems like something else always comes up to pour cash into
I live over by tenkiller lake   ,several months ago I bought a house very near you in salina (6 or 8 miles I guess)and talked awhile to a man who lives in Peggs not far down the road from ya
 I believe he said his sawmill was a baker
If you wanted to check out a nearby mill.


Experience is a rough teacher first you get the test later comes the lesson!
