This is my first post so not sure if I'm doing it right or not.  I'm from West Va. and just purchased my first mill.  I started out on a circular mill with my Dad,  worked 33 years for a power company and about to retire.  I've always Loved smelling that sawdust so I bought my mill and plan on doing some sawing of my own logs and maybe others.  Have only sawed a couple logs so far but plan on taking some time off and really getting into it.  I'll probably have a lot of questions and hope some of you experienced millers can help me out.  I've been reading your posts and don't yet understand some of the language.  I've already ruined my first blade by hitting the clamp.


good job on the clamp!  hitting the turner makes you a pro!  I prefer to saw through the backstops :)

what part of WV are you from? I originally hail from Berekely County.

there's a host of info here on this site, take a few evenings and dig way back on the sawing section.  good luck!

There's a fine line between turning firewood into beautiful things and beautiful things into firewood.

Welcome Brooksmill.  The only definition you need is for the word DanG.  It is a universal descriptive used for most everything.  The other major word is food - needs no defining.

Good man. DanG should be along anytime now to find out if you have any recipes which might not be in his arsenal. That would be shocking though. :)

DanG is the moniker for his actual name . . . . Dan Grits. It's also the official "cussword" of the FF.
