Thanks, I did think that up. Here is more crazy things:https://forestryforum.com/board/index.php/topic,46176.0.html I'd like to stop by your shop again sometime.

I bought a LT40 a couple years ago and have been going through the bandmill learning curve myself. It is a really good mill I am happy with it. I have been primarily cutting pine, sawed a few logs today and made some beams and a fireplace mantle for someone. My experience so far is it seems like if you keep a sharp blade and the feed speed moderate it will cut perfectly. I definitely can hear when it is cutting right, not only by the sound of the blade but if the feed speed is just right the engine will seem to lug just the right amount and you can feel that everything is working perfectly. If you ever need logs down your way I know a few people who do a lot of work not to far from you.
