Westernstar...I'm glad you will soon be "legal" and back to sawing. It's perfectly understandable that most folks find it much easier and simpler to just comply with whatever regulation or ordinance they happen to be in violation of at the time. it is much harder to contest these things in terms of Money, time and added stress. But at what point do you say enough already?  Perhaps next year they pass a decibel ordinance and you have upgrade the muffler. Then a clean air regulation is passed that says you must capture and contain 95% of your sawdust. Then another ordinance comes along stating that sawmills, for reasons of safety, can only operate in a secure location, such as within a fenced perimeter or inside a building. At some point, you have to draw a line in the sawdust. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad you'll be back to sawing, but I'm also frustrated whenever I hear about a "Public official" once again encroaching on our civil liberties. now where's that little green elf with the snowball?

Aha!   :snowball: :snowball:

I've looked all over the code for Caroline County and can't find a single reference to anything about sawmill operations.  Does the warrant make a reference to the code you are supposedly violating? 

If the noise is the issue, they need to come out and measure it at the property line while the mill is running...different zoning is allowed different levels of constant noise from a stationary source.  Rural is 55dB, residential is 60dB, but all of that is exempt for forestry and agriculture.  I'm curious to how this shakes out, I'm not a big fan of counties flexing their muscles  ::)

Greetings, Is there any more on this? Have you made the mill portable? Best of luck.

Holy WOW!!!

That's impressive.... When you cut that much, that fast, is it still fun or does it just become your job?

Very good sawyer. The mill that I log for is a circle mill with three edger blades, and they run hard like that as well. As far as it becoming a job according to my father in law the head sawyer he say's it get's boring and he can't wait for the weekend  :D

just seen the video, man that is a cool saw. I see what the edger does, but what is the purpose of the other blade on top. I never seen it do much...or did I just miss it.?

The top saw is to saw through a large log that the main (head) saw cannot reach through.
