I see the log stops go straight up and down.
I painted 4-6-8-inch and so on marks on mine. 4 inches is really 3 inches high, and 6 inches is really 5 inches. This way when I am cutting flitches at 8 inches, I know the log stop is set at seven and I have an inch to spare. I can set the log stops at the highest height for better holder power.

Was thinking about paint but like your idea better.

on my mill, each bunk has the holes for more log stops.  I will have to see if I could put one closer to the operator station and use a wooden sacrificial stop.  If I hit them, it is because the first one is hidden by the log, and I forget to swing over and check it.  It almost sounds like I have done this more than once!   :o :o :o

Ground is finally dry enough to start getting the space prepped, shed needs to find a new location but it's out of the way.

Our annual monsoon finally subsided about a week ago and its just dry enough now that I could run the tractor without ripping everything up, managed to set the saw head and get the re-purposed shed into place for lumber storage today. Ran thru all the Woodland setup procedures so hopefully making some sawdust tomorrow.

Managed to cut mill the bulk of the shed framing from my standing dead so off we go. All the posts set and concrete poured today.



 




Got a lot done yesterday and I'm paying for it today, getting old sucks.

Moving along well and it looks like you've got a nice spot. 

I'm quite envious of y'all who make your own lumber. Not owning a sawmill (and being too lazy to run my chainsaw mill much) makes it a drag to see some of this stuff, but I'm happy for all y'all that can do it and it's neat to see new equipment coming along. 
New Holland LB75b, Husqvarna 455 Rancher, Husqvarna GTH52XLS, Hammerhead 250, Honda VTX1300 for now and probably for sale (let me know if you are interested!)

Making some decent progress, with just about $100 into the structure. May have to actually have to buy a roof since I don't seem to have any mild steel trees to mill.
