COME ON!!!!  I have the perfect log for you and your mill.  I am only about an hour and half from Paul and can provide NICE accommodations for you for a couple of days up to 4 days.  I have a large an no extra large oak tree that should make 2 40in dia logs.  I have to secure it but if you are coming I believe that I can get it and move it to a sawable location.   please call me 479 238 4629.

Thanks
Chase

Don't really have anything that big to saw. Can find a couch or mattress on the floor though, if you come through North Eastern Kentucky.

Hi Guys,

Chris stopped by for a few days here at the farm while he will be doing demo's at Ag Progress Days in North Western PA at State College, just south of Rt 80. I'm sure he'd look forward to meeting any of you that might be in the area, Ag progress runs from the 16th to the 18th, the venue is only open during the day (shuts down at about 5pm). When Chris called us from Pittsburgh I had forgotten all about him passing thru, (my memory is like a steel sieve) he got here last evening and we had a great evening talking saws and life in general. If you get a chance to stop by in at Ag progress days I'm sure he'd love showing off the Lucas Mill. He offered to slab a gnarly log I have in the pile while he was here (way too big for the mills around here) so I'll get a chance to see it in operation up close and personal.

In my house I'm the boss, I know this because my wife said so, I only hope she doesn't change her mind!

New to me Timber Harvester that I'm learning to operate, been building a home built mill for a while, should be ready to make sawdust with it someday if I ever quit "modifying" the design.

Wouldn't expect any milling for it (although I'd love to see it), but if you happen anywhere close by Nebraska on your way back we can definitely put you up for a night or two.

Meadows if ya like you could come up to "Sasquatchland"  We got plenty of biguns to saw up.  ;)  Heck I could bring ya up to my custom job and do a demo there.  I'd even do the tailing for ya mate.   :D  Lotsa dry spruce to cut.
