As much work as it has been, it's one of those things that didn't really seem like work because I was enjoying it immensely. 
I had to touch nearly every piece on the mill and therefore got to know it really well. Definitely got an understanding of how it's put together much better than if I got a mill that I just put gas in and started sawing. 

I still have a few tweaks to do and a few modifications I want to add, but it's making straight lumber!

I donít have any pictures of the clamp, but I followed pineyís prints and directions pretty close. It worked very well as a turner and a clamp. It was faster and more controlled than the spring loaded turner on my lt40.

I finally started moving logs to mill this week.
Getting ready to make a lot of sawdust!

Wondering what blade you guys would recommend on this one...

It looks like a five stud mangrove - very rare.
Only our in-house Dendrologist would be able to do a positive ID. @WDH 
Hmmmm . . . a bias-ply Whippet from Canadian Tire wouldn't work well. Too British.
You're in Fl. so perhaps it's best to go with a full radial Michelin.
That way it's compatible with the French Patois occasionally found down on the Bayou.

That tree ate a home made mill.  Only the blade wheel from one side is still visible!

The tree won that one!
