The log owner where we will be sawing just called and said the mud is knee deep where my mill is sat up.  I bet it dries by the time ya get here, but just in case you threw in some mud boots right? :D

I'm quite jealous of the deal the GMM got on the best mill going.  Wish I had got such a bargain.  Pays to shop around and be patient.

Its a bright and sunny this morning...its always a beautiful day in Arkansas, :) just some are drier than others.

 Sounds like you did real good on the price, even brand new from TK the 2000 is a lot of mill for the money.   Steve

GMM and his dog showed up bout 8:30 this morning.  I gave him a quick tour of our place and showed him some clear 15" wide red oak boards to whet his appetite.  We than went to a sawing job where I have the mill sat up.  Spent the morning going over the mill controls and operation.  After a great lunch we started in sawing.  I sawed the first few logs and let GMM have the controls for the final log.  He did a great job running my mill.  I know its information overload the first time with all the controls plus the setworks.

I could tell hes hooked bad when that first 19" board came off the log.

 

GMM left late afternoon as the mill he is buying is located in central Arkansas. 

We had a very enjoyable day sawing Arkansas pine.  John, our off bearer was there to lend a helping hand keeping the saw cleared of boards.

Im sure GMM will fill us in with more details and a few pictures when he gets home in a few days with his new mill.

PS:  No orange paint required ;D

Yes, you can tell that GMM has sawdust on his boots, so he is a goner for sure!  Good on you, Larry, for being such a good coach.

 I'm with you broylescc, it sounds like he came down here to my back yard. By the way I'm up at Mt. View pretty regular visiting my son, dil. , grandson,and soon to be granddaughter. Maybe we should get together and talk over saw milling, and maybe even breakfast at the rainbow cafe.
