I did make a video of the sharpener running.  Just to send to Electric Al in Iowa to prove that I got the sharpener going.  

I tripped a breaker right off because it started off grinding too deep.  I forgot there was a reset behind the control box under the oil pan.  I forgot to turn on the oil flow valve on top of the grinder head and had to figure out why no oil was flowing.  The wiring connection to the grinder motor came loose while I fiddled with the box under the oil pan and took a bit to realize why the grinder motor wasn't working.  



It is remarkable that all this Wood-Mizer equipment still works (knock on wood) after all these years.

     Very happy to see you back!  Use your mill as a second hobby now and then and stop being a stranger.  You've been sorely missed for a long time now.

 I still remember watching your videos from back when.
I watched your videos when trying to learn to operate Accuset 11.  I can understand you a little easier than Doug (4x4 American).  It is good to see you posting again.

That Mary is dangerous with her guns.  Think we should hire her to take care of the thieves plaguing us.

@Bibbyman 

Glad that you and Mary are enjoying a well earned retirement. Thank you for the multitude of informative posts that took countless hours to compose in order to share your Wood-Mizer knowledge and expertise. That information was crucial to aiding me learn and understand how to develop my own sawmill.

Playing with guns is an acceptable excuse for not sawing wood.

Great to see you posting and enjoying your retirement. Thank you for dropping in. It's always great to see people form the past visit.
I actually used 2 of Mary's saw horses that I built 15 years ago when I first came on the forum. I was thinking at the time of you 2!  And here you are .

Hey, Gary, good to hear from you again.

I semi-retired 5 years ago and made it official in 2019. Like you, I kept the mill for my own use & pleasure. Now people keep calling up to see if I'll cut "just this one log". No!
