Woodmizer will probably contact you to use that photo in their promotional material.
You take a great photo MM, thanks for thawing out your hands long enough to capture the moment!

. . . wet sawdust would build up a thick layer on the blade guides.  .   .
Joe, were you using blade lube at all?
Windshield washer fluid (-40 rated) works well at keeping the blade clean and an added bonus is that the sawdust doesn't freeze up on guides and between boards.
It aggravating to have to pry-bar the boards apart.
I was using diesel.  However with my mill if I flood the blade with too much lube the blade likes to come off the wheels.

I donít saw in the winter months . Just too much trouble dealing with snow and ice on the logs . Plus the mess you make  with the slabs covered in ice , naw not doing it .

Now that being said I log in the winter . Best time ever in the woods is about -15C and a sunny day .too cold to sweat so your just good as you work


Why is this wrong way up I donít know . Adm will fix Iím sure

Now Fluidpower, what part of MN are you in that they are calling Jack Pine, Red Pine? I won't have it!😊
Sorry, been away so not able to visit the forum as often as I would like.
Forgive my ignorance. I thought they were the same. I hang out most of the time near Holyoke, 30 miles south of Duluth.
A few years ago I bought 20 acres down the road that was former Potlatch land, so whatever pine they planted, thats it....
Change is hard....
Especially when a jar full of it falls off the top shelf and hits your head!
