It appears the hydraulic pump was setup by the previous.  It has a custom coupler to mate the mandrel and the pump shaft.  It does seems to wobble a bit. I was working on plans to mount it on the frame a use a v belt. But I知 worried about the belt slipping. 
And yes the pump does run the live deck and log turner. They sold at auction separately from the mill and I知 very happy I picked those up as well. 

Doug, I致e been keeping my eyes out for another dog to add. They seem a little hard to come by.  :)

They are hard to find but they are out there.  When I pull my carriage out [ to put the no. 1 in ] I will have 1 or 2 for sale but they will not be cheap and the forum gets a commission. A lane or chase screw dog would really help you.

I知 looking for some input, maybe @moodnacreek can help. 

I知 looking to purchase another saw. I found a saw shop w/ a used 60 I can have delivered for ~$1200.  Hammered to my rpm and new carbide bits. The gentleman at the saw shop told me it痴 a 8 gauge. I知 not sure what gauge I currently have.  I have a 52 right now so I realize I値l have to more the blade guide and splitter. Probably adjust the lead. My current saw bits say 8/9 on them does this mean they would fit on a 8 gauge saw?   Is there any reason I should avoid buying this? Thanks in advance.


  And the saw has been running great.  I spent all day shoveling sawdust and stickering 2x8s for the roof.

If the saw bits are the same style they will work or at least fit even if they are less kerf. A 60 " saw would want to run slower rpm because it will have more rim speed. I could use a larger saw, in fact I really need one but if i ever get the new mill in I would like to do a top saw instead.  Please keep us posted on your progress.

Got moving on a roof for the mill before the weather turns.  I used larch for the posts and I知 using hemlock for the framing lumber

Now this is what I like to see!  A roof over the mill not only saves it but allows you to schedule sawing for a rainy day. As I don't saw everyday I try to keep the board end clear and the next order on the log deck. If it is a nice morning with rain coming tomorrow I often work outside when I should be sawing. [why do today what you can put off until tomorrow]      Now when you see and old sawmill covered with a rotten blue tarp you can make a face like I do :(.

Yes it is.
One of my friends has the same feeling.
Had full 2X8's off to the side for a month while I was sawing. My friend was much happier with the weight of the ones that was a month old.  ;D

Based on a recent reply in the "Watcha Sawin' 2021" thread (#1346), I thought you were going to tell us that hanging new Head Saws from the ceiling keeps them in balance......

A 60" is big for a green mt. or tractor Lane. They said 54" was the largest.  But other makers claimed you could do 60" on the 2 7/16" mandrel .  What make and style is it? Piper's makes some of there own saws, head saws, and not many do that these days
