No, we were rain/stormed out this week and sadly this next week doesn't look any better.  I am now shooting for the week of March 29th or the next week of April 5th.

PatD has her aortic heart valve replacement scheduled for the next week (15th) so if we can't get it done before that we will have to skip a few weeks.
Best of luck on a speedy recovery.

Thank you, she/we are apprehensive but also ready for her to be able to regain her normal activities.  I'll put up a topic later in the "Health and Safety" board detailing her aortic heart valve journey.

Sure hoping everything goes smooth and simple for you both MM. Getting back to 'normal' whatever that may be for each of us, is a wonderful thing. You guys have got this.

Saturday's whack of logs. Walnut, Cherry, Pine and Spruce.


 

And the resulting whacks of lumber: 6x6's


 

and 4/4 boards: pine and spruce


 walnut and cherry

Oh, and 8/4 live edge walnut on the bottom of the pile. All in all a good day.

  Boy that is some pretty log stacking! Was that your wood or a customers? I need to steal a copy of that picture to send to all my mobile customers as to what their logs should look like before they call me and say they are ready for me to come saw.

   Real pretty finished lumber too!

I picked up my blades from sharpening yesterday at a local place.  I've never sent them anywhere buy woodmizer.  I realized that they did not clean the blades like WM did.  I paid $7 per blade for sharpening.
Is it worth cleaning the blades myself before I send them to this guy or not bother with it?  I may eventually go back to using re-sharp when things settle down in the world, but for now its this local guy who has always sharpened my circular blades.  Thanks.

My price has gone up from 6 to 9 bucks a blade, and 20 bucks shipping for 6 blades one way.  I am a bout to buy a sharpener.  they did sorta threaten to charge more if they had to clean the blade.  I am getting better with the lube, and less sap and dust on the blades.  I am sure if it was bad enough, it may throw off the set.  It also will defeat the point if there is enough stuff built up on that fresh sharpened blade and they do not track well.

They are not super crusty or anything, just clearly not cleaned like WM used to.  I was looking at sharpeners and they are not terribly expensive, but to get one that also sets the blade is quite expensive.  Is there a way to set the teeth otherwise?

   Pretty poor day for me. I had a skin doctor appointment (We think we have the answer to my Atopic Dermatitis on hand and feet- Dupixent to the Rescue) then I met my helper and customer back at the mill about half way home. We sawed 7-8 logs including one gnarly, big butted 14' WO that was a struggle from  start to finish and in the last cut to salvage one more board off the side and I hit the standard 2 nails from a posted sign I'd guess. Only log that blade had sawed so the customer bought it. I was getting 1X10's off it and they were clearly too much for my 77 y/o hookwormy looking helper so I'd have to help him stack each board as they came off the mill. He gave out on me about 4:00 pm or so. I ended up stacking the last 4 boards off the last cant then packed it up. We only got about 418 bf. I looked after I packed up and see there is only 6 more to finish. I probably should have just sawed and stacked but agreed to meet at 8:30 am tomorrow to finish. I will finish then if I have to do it alone as I need to bring the mill home. I have another scheduled job this weekend and may sandwich in one a mile down the road before during Wednesday or Thursday. It looks like I may have to stack them for my 85 y/o neighbor/customer. If so I'll just charge extra for it. It should be a 1 day job as is my weekend job.


Whopping 418 bf for the afternoon. Today's lumber is stacked in front of the shed. Under the shed is Saturday's sawing. We cut one cherry into 8', 3' and 4' boards to maximixe the return. They are on the ground separate. The customer will use them to make birdhouses.

  Oh well, at least it is only 11 miles and today was only a 5 mile side trip on the way back from my doctor visit.

  Just before I pulled out a truck with a new slide in camper drove by and I ended up behind him. It looked like a brand new rig. I hope he did not tear up his A/C and such hitting the low hanging limbs and stuff hanging over the road. I see he had a Maine tag so I assume he was lost. GPS may have routed him that was as a shortcut to I-64. He was driving slow and saw me following so he had the great courtesy to stop to let me pass. Unfortunately not being familiar with the area he stopped at a narrow spot on the road where we had a big road slippage and repair last year that none of us trust anyway so I waited behind him. After a couple more miles he found a wide spot and pulled over where I could pass.

This was at a first time customer. Well stacked logs and and abundance of energetic help made for an easy day. the boards were stacked and stickered as they came off the mill and there was a stack of already dry lumber that was going on top to weight the fresh stuff down. This was not the customer's first time at the dance.  :) I anticipate that there will be more work for me down the road.

WV,
My dermatologist called me into his office, last year, to offer Dupixent to me.  As I remember, it was shots every week or maybe every other week.  I told him no thanks.  No way was I driving 45 miles for a shot every two weeks.  Atopic Dermatitis is the main reason I don't saw away from home.
   In the winter, I usually take a mid day rinse off and change clothes.  In the summer, it is 2-3 rinse offs a day and same amount of clothes changes.  When I get a bad flareup, it is an epsom salt bath for me.  Usually it is manageable enough to just use CeraVe body lotion

Is it worth cleaning the blades myself before I send them to this guy or not bother with it? 
We have a guy who sharpens our blades with an old WM drag sharpener.  I ensure our blades are rust free and sap free when we take them to him.  He has been sharpening everything to 4 degrees but we just purchased a 7 degree wheel for his machine so he could sharpen our 7's to 7 degrees.  We used a 7, resharp today and it was sticky sharp and sawed like a Ninja.  The diesel drip or cotton picker spindle lube keeps the blades pretty clean but I spend as much time as needed to get ALL of the sap off using diesel, a rag and a sharpened putty knife prior to taking them to him.  He appreciates the clean blades and we appreciate sharp blades.  If he quits sharpening for us we will likely buy a new sharpener.  I'd rather pay him.

Brandi,

   These shots were samples and they are like an epi-pen auto injector. You don't have to drive in - you can give them to yourself. I got another shot today and give myself another in 2 weeks. It starts off as a shot every 2 weeks but he said we may start stretching it out to every 3 then maybe every 4 weeks. I gave myself 2 shots here at home in the muscle of my thigh and it was a pretty straight-forward process. Take the pen out of the fridge about 45 minutes to let it warm up to room temp, remove the cap, press on the muscle till the yellow cap (about 1/2" long) is buried in the muscle then it clicks and injects and you watch a dial show the medicine being injected. Hold it till the count of 5 afterwards and dispose of the pen. 

    The skin on my feet and hands was getting scaly and thick and cracking and very painful and I worried about getting infections or such. We thought it was fungus and tried several oral and topical cream treatments with no success. Then I tried a steroid cream which helped but never defeated it. The Dupixent samples knocked it out completely and just a hint of scale around my heels and center of my feet but it is light years ahead of where it was. 

   If you are still fighting it I'd reconsider. My dermatologist was amazed and even called his PA in to look at the change in such a short period. I had been fighting it nearly a year.

Oh.  Guess I misunderstood.  I put a compound ointment on my ankles and feet once day.  If I don't, they itch.  I have had it on my ankles and calves for over 30 years.  I can't let sweat dry on my skin.  I will email my dermatologist right now.
