I miss you LT!
« on: August 30, 2012, 03:30:47 PM »
As some of you know, myself and a freind of mine own an LT-15 together. Well, a few months ago (maybe even 4 months) he brought the mill to a freinds house to do some work and I haven't seen it since! 
I have to admit, I'm having sawdust withdrawals!  I haven't milled in months! 

Next week, I'm finally going down to pick up the mill and bring it back to its happy place (my yard!)

I can't wait to get the ole girl back and get some sawdust back in my bloodstream! 

You guys posting pics have carried me through these tough times!  Thank you!

I miss my LT!

I feel your pain to quote our old pres  Bill Clinton,
I get the shakes when I don't mill for a few days, but do take time off tho to fish and hunt.
Am going to Quebec next Wed to fish for 4 days and then to Wyoming on Oct 2 to hunt Antelope and elk.
I  shut down in our deer season and thru the winter as the snow (usually) is 3 to 4 feet deep at my mill site which is 1/4 mile from the nearest plowed road.

Sounds like the best option would be to sell your share and get a mill with hydraulics,loader and all the goodies.You have already cut your teeth on the manual and need to move up. Frank C.

I was actually thinking a little differently, instead of selling out my share and upgrading to a bigger mill with those lovely hydraulics, I would buy out his share and call the ole LT15 my own.    ;D

I should be picking it up this week.  I have a friend borrowing my trailer right now and as soon as he is done I'll be on my way  8)

 :D :D  I thought you meant Jim.


I'm having a few trees dropped at my house by some "more experienced" people than me.  I should get 6 or so sawlogs out of them.  I figure it's a convenient excuse to get the mill back to it's more caring owner  ;)

I've met my match with these 3 trees though, I've taken down large trees near the house and always felt very confident and had a good plan before dropping them, but these ones, have power wires on 3 of the 4 sides, and on the 4th side is my uncles house, I figure I better quit while I'm ahead and call in the pros before I cause some damage!   ;D
