Lol.  I think I'll probably just stick to wood and leave the steel work to pros, unless it just involves drilling and bolting.  I can do that, its more like woodworking.

I went out today to do a little routine maintenance on the mill this morning.  When I went to adjust one of the bolts and jam nuts for the blade guide I discovered it was gone.  Guy at WM told me that particular one wasn't terribly important, but I feel like it wasn't good it was missing.  Gotta make a stop at the hardware store to see if I can find one instead of ordering from WM.

The problem is, I like melting metal as much as making sawdust.  I got more diverse projects that Carter's has little liver pills. 
Check and tighten everything.  Did you pick up a new vibration?  Didn't you just change engines?

Yes, new engine a couple months ago.  I just finished going thru everything.  Re-aligned the blade guides.  Checked all the other bolts and jam nuts.  I backed the blade roller guides off and reset them to make sure they were both pushing down on the blade correctly.

I sawed SYP and Tulip Poplar for a many times repeat customer today.  Small job with only 8 logs.



The Red Oak closer to the camera will be firewood.


 
1083bf of SYP framing lumber and Poplar 1X4's & 1X10's.  Just s neat little 5 hour job.

I have a 76 mile one day job and then a 2 day local job that I hope to be able to knock out next week; both are sawing SYP framing lumber.

Good work MM. 
Today was a day to catch up on a little sawing. Last week I volunteered at a livestock show so no paying work was done. 
This morning a guy came by to pick up some 4x4s and 1x6s that I sawed yesterday after work. This morning John came over and we unloaded the kiln, stacked some Pecan slabs on our racks and hauled the rest to the local hardwood store. When I got home from the hardwood store there were two customers waiting. Sold and surfaced a slab and a few small cedar slabs. Just finished sawing a small cypress order. I spent more time fishing an appropriate sized log out of the pond than I did sawing it. Tomorrow Ill probably get to sawing pine 2x4s (they are now worth sawing and selling). 

I cut this log in half and sawed 12 1x8s and put
The bigger half back in the pond for another day.

 These walnut trees have been dead and off the ground for probably 20 years and still look solid. Cut a branch off and its rock solid

Sawed up some Hemlock 2x6 and built two heavy duty saw horses to support a roller table for the slab wood. Spring has sprung and it was a beautiful day in upstate New York.

I had a sawyer out Mon/Tues to saw up a bunch of poplars into framing lumber (2x4, 2x6... 2x12, 4x4, 4x6's,  8'-16').  That should keep me supplied for many years to come.  First project once air dried will be a solar kiln.  Obviously not for real building as they are do not meet code, but it seems like we are always grabbing a couple 2x4 etc. for little projects around the farm.  We also made a bunch of stickers and sawed up a couple small red maple logs and cherry crotch.  Good times.

 @caveman I've not sawed any cypress, but there's someone local selling a half a dozen logs.  He says they are between 12 and 18" diameter.  I"m thinking about trying to get them.  When you saw the cypress do you box the heart or ignore the heart.  I have used a lot of cypress and would like to have it.
