Picked up the new mill
« on: May 17, 2014, 02:13:43 PM »
Hi Guys,
Went to Maine  on friday and picked up my new Thomas 8013 mill .
Left my house in NH at 4 am it took 5 hours to get there .
The owner Jon Thomas was great went over the mill well with me.
Got to saw on a test mill just like the one i got.
The mill towed great it has trailer kit 70/80 on highway .
Worked today no time to work on mill pad for shop set up .
Hope to work on pad site on sunday so i can start sawing .

When we leave the great state of Maine we use 2-95. That 95 is wicked. I should of told ya,I did not think of it. I think we pay not even $5,maybe even $3.
