Had a great visit with forum member FatOldeElf(Paul Randolph) on Friday.  I am about to pick up a Cook's MP-32 and he offered to show me MP-32, and saw a few boards with me.  Being the Friday before Easter, I only had a few hours to spend but he and his wife were friendly and hospitable and I even scored two of his hand carved Christmas ornaments!   His saw is several model years older than current and he quickly pointed out some of the improvements I could expect on my saw that Cooks' made over the years.  But his cut great and I had a wonderful time.   Thanks Paul and the folks who run the forum!

I worked sawmills as a teenager and one fall morning I came to work and smelled walnut cutting.  I have loved sawmills ever sinc
