Diet Dr Pepper.  That's the pilot son.   I had to sneak the phone  out, to get a quick  picture. Amazes me how much more I get accomplished with even one of those two around. Oldest son and his significant other got there about dark.

Have been sawing frozen hemlock in between other work. Yesterday freezing rain mist all day ::) About 600bf left, cut sheet is 8,10,12ft 1 & 2 x 4,6,8. 12ft frozen hemlock 2x8s add up fast but do not like handling them  ;D 

Had to increase blade tension a little more than normal. The WM 747s actually doing great, but dull fast and suddenly and will try something else next time...



 

 

Ordinarily don't keep much track of production but have been meticulous this time and all that did is point out the place for an edger, my biggest bottleneck by a lonnngggg shot. Edging on mill cuts my bf/hr in half consistently.

Stay safe and warm out there

I've used a kerosene flame heater in winter to preheat logs that were covered in ice and snow, helps the blades stay sharp longer.
Under bark there's boards and beams, somewhere in between.
Cuttin' while its green, through a steady sawdust stream.
I'm chasing the sawdust dream.

I tried two 15 packs of 747 blades, and I won't be ordering any more as I find the beam strength of the teeth is not sufficient in my knotty wood.  I don't know if I was asking too much of them or what but I may have 10 left to get sharpened.  The teeth were breaking when in use.  I recently ordered four 15 packs of 739's those worked better for me.

That mirrors my experience with the 747s as well GAB. Got a good deal on these but will not buy more. Broken teeth as well (not frozen logs). They do cut well when I get it all dialed and the right wood but should be able to saw faster than my mill can to get best results and was not looking for disposable blades.

I tried the RRQS method yesterday for the first time. The log I had was too short to reach the toe rollers on each end Which made it harder with about 6 inches of taper in a 5 1/2 foot log.It also was not long enough for my hydraulic side supports.I was able to make it work with the manual ones, what they wanted to move when I was rolling the log. All in all it was a good experience, thanks yellow hammer. I wish I would have seen somebody do this in person first, but Im sure Ill do better next time. Still got some nice boards.

Back in the saddle!  Man it felt awesome to be sawing!  

My customer wanted 6x6s 12 long.  We made 12. We also made 8 6x6x8

He had a cute tractor or an awesome lawn mower, Im not sure which it is.

Welp, It's been a joy sharing as well as following your sawin' activities during this past year.  While my sawing profile has changed a bit, sawing is still the best thing going.  Here is looking forward to 2022.
