Our forecast says single digit highs and subzero lows all next week for me. The saw is going to stay parked at home.

Nailed it.  It looks like your blade kept cutting flat with a tooth out of set.  Blades are the best metal detectors.

From right to left and from the nail on down.  Lol.

Don't think I wouldn't enjoy it OG.  I didn't get to go skiing this year, I am really needing some snow in my life.  Supposed to get 2" tomorrow.  Of course I'm at work...the only time I don't really enjoy snow.

Danny,
I find this pic fascinating, as it teaches me a little bit about "Speeds & Feeds". As most of you know, I don't (yet) own a sawmill- I use a CSM. Your pic tells me that (not sure how wide the piece is, but assuming it's in the 6" range) the band makes one full revolution for every ~3/4" of travel... That is humming right along. My CSM wouldn't surprise me to find the same tooth on the 32" bar making contact with the piece about every 1/8". So I can complete my calculations, how wide was your work piece- and was it Softwood or Hardwood?
DanG, I've got to get me a Bandsaw Mill!
Thanks.
Steve

Playing truck drivers because neither of my haulage contractors likes dealing with them at that size.... about 9 tonne in the head end of the log and when you start shunting them over the side with a dozer its hard on the gear and things get broken. 20' x 50"... 2645 BF Doyle... butt log will go somewhere up around the 4000 BF mark.

They'll bring the weekly average back up anyway.

Great log LL!  Question why leave them so long?  Is that being sawn for grade lumber or is it one of those tough to process Aussi Eucs that is better off as a rough long lumber?

Olcow,

The board is about 12 wide.  The wood is older, natural southern yellow pine.

Talk about a double edged sword, we hate to find nails in the wood we saw, but use nails to secure the wood we saw 🤔

Some big white oak logs that we are going to send off to get slabbed. The big one on my right will probably get quartersawn.
 For size reference, Im 63 tall.

Neah I had an order for 20' gunbarrel straight 4 x 4's. Whole lot easier when you're carving them out of big stable old growth logs... no need to oversaw and edge just carve them off and feed them into the moulder the right way and they came out about as straight as you'd ever get over that length.

My truck is an ACCO... "day cab" International COE, about the same half bunk area as a Hino. It does a job I guess, really only there for my convenience.... deliveries, pick up short loads of logs, shift my own skidder around etc etc. Need to put a crane back on it by rights but truth is I've either got to upgrade to more axles or get away from trucks altogether. It's really convenient but it's expensive convenience too.

Whole heap of thoughts there about carts and horses and the need to upgrade the mill capacity rather than the support equipment but without better support equipment then more mill is futile, and capital outlay vs returns, time costs, core business vs essential support services and where you draw lines around vertical integration and... and... and. Thats a whole topic by itself yeah?

Another 500 of cedar going out in the morning.  

I started sawing cedar when I bought my first mill because it was easy to saw. Its turning into a pretty good money maker now. Im averaging 2000 a month. I was just buying 1000 of logs at a time, but I bought my first tractor trailer load this week. It sells as fast as I can get it off the mill. Yellow pine is selling good right now too.  Just not enough hours in a day to get it all done!

Any idea what that ERC is being used for?  Was there a lot of demand for it before you started supplying it or did the demand develop because you made it available. Just curious cause it seems like a lot of demand for green rough sawn erc and it sounds like youre the main source. Good for you no matter what.
