Fuzzybear,if I remember right there is a post on setting the blade tension without a gauge and thank you for taking the time for the review.
Woodsman76,good luck with your new mill and can't wait to see your pictures and video. I really enjoy watching different mills operating
and different yard setups.

Tomorrow is the day you are waiting for. I too will be interested in hearing ,seeing about your new mill. I did come very close to buying one also. I feel you are dealing with a nice pair of fellows at Woodland and wished they were in the west also.

Wether you think you can or you can't you're right

        I purchased a HM126 last June and it is a well-built mill. Well worth the $3000.00 price tag. There is a learning curve in its operation so hang with it and it will do everything you need it to. Couple tips right of the bat is to take off the head clamp bolts and blade guide bearings and use blue Loctite on them. Mine came apart after a couple hours of use and had to special order a bearing at $28.00.  :( Only have done a couple mods on it so far, stuck a piece of tubing on the lube line to extend it all the way to the top of the blade and also added a 5 gal. bucket with s hook and backstop on the discharge chute to collect sawdust and added an extra log clamp. Neil at woodland mills is awesome to work with if you have a problem.   Sam

Thanks for all the responses everyone and too Bandit11208 I will definately go grab the locktite first thing in the morning, I just checked the tracking and it left Alanta Ga heading to me here in FL so I am guessing that it will be here first thing in the morning and can not wait. Also like the idea with the 5 gallon bucket to collect the sawdust "Cool."
HaroldSiefke I really like the mod with the moveable saw guide, anyway you send or post some more detailed pics on the mod I would really love to do that to mine. Anyway it's midnight and I can not wait until tomorrow I am glad I am selfemployed so when my saw does show i done for the day lol!!! Well I will be sure to give everyone my take on this mill and a honest opinion. By the way the people at Woodlandmills were great to deal with.

Woodsman76,welcome to the forum. How did you sleep last night?  :D  Is the wood of the mill going to be used for making furniture? Ever been around a sawmill? Good luck to you.
