An interesting thread to say the least . I'm buying white oak , tan oak , madrone ,cedar , almond and several types of walnut this month in truckload quantities . I'd like to post prices , but what I'm paying would label me crazy LOL. What a difference from coast to coast !  Rob

Well now you got me wondering, tule peak!

sandsawmill- are you having to do alot of widdling with the chainsaw?  hows the mill holding up?

treeslayer- yea up here the oaks grow slow.  I don't know how accurate the ring theory is either, but what else can we go by?  if a tree could talk I bet they'd have some crazy stories.... that'll be a different thread...back to the topic now...

4x4  yep some trimming required  ;D  the only problem ive had is we have to take the cant hooks and help the log turner on some of those 20"+ cants  i will trim up to about 38" any bigger and i just split em like the on in the pic
 almost forgot i dont know how your mill is set up but if it has the jacks like the b 20  you had better just use them to level then block with heavy timbers in at leased 4 places (i use 7x9s) and take the jacks off  if you try to saw timber this size on jacks you will tear them off in short order     dont ask how i know :-[    logs this size are hard on any mill  a 40" dia red oak 9' long weighs almost 5000lbs :o  so just be careful !!!  have you ever worked in big timber or logs before?

The biggest log I've had on this mill was a scarlet oak 16' long, idk the diameter, but I had my 660 with 36" bar buried on the big end had to walk it around.  the small end had to have been at least 30"  the customer insisted that i left it 16' long, I wanted to half it.  not sure what his plans were for 16' oak 5/4x12  they aren't going to dry very well.  oh well, he's the one paying me.  I found some nails in that one too.  On our mobile dimension mill back at the farm, we sawed alot of big wood.  The bossman got free wood from tree services, and they'd bring some big old hardwood yard trees.  he ended up getting a stihl 880 with a 5' bar to buck some of the logs we were getting, the 36" bar on his jonsered 2188 was just too small.  our equipment could barely handle some of the logs we got.  The other biggest log I had on the mill was a 32" tulip in my profile picture.  That's really about as big as I care to go with this mill.  It just beats up the bunks so bad.  My plan is for this OG stuff is to half em with chainsaw, I built a jig for my powersaw so I can stick that on it and get a pretty accurate cut down the middle.  There's a thread on that on as somewhere in the milling section.

My friend sent me a picture of a cottonwood on the property, he put a shovel in front of it for size comparison.

You might have to quarter that one to get it on the mill. :D

that cotton wood reminds me of some poplar trees my granddad gave dad to build a house and he never cut them  their on the back of the farm so i havent seen them since '93 or '94 and they were about 36" dbh then  think i might take a hike back there this weekend and take a look at them an maybe a pic  if storms hadnt got them
