Title: New mill owner
Post by: 4horse on February 06, 2019, 05:15:06 PM
I just purchased a brand new WM LT28 with the log deck package and power feed. Ive been lurking on here for two years and doing the usual interweb schooling. I purchased mainly for my own use milling an almost endless supply of doug fir and lodgepoles. To say we are excited to get rolling is an understatement. Lucky to have so much knowledge in one place, thanks to everybody that didnt even know they helped me!

Wont actually have the mill for about 6 more weeks. We are, however, going to start tipping over trees and hauling them to the yard this weekend. Hoping to get a pile before the pitch starts to build up this spring.

I believe I got all my details added to the profile!

I bet that is going to feel like a couple of long weeks!!!  :D

Sounds like a plan.... must be warmer in Wyoming... it is still -4 F at 10 AM !  >:( ... actually the thing that is keeping us from doing more right now is all the ice under the snow... makes everything so much more difficult!

While you are waiting, do some searches on youtube and watch and learn... there are some great vids out there if you take the time... and down on the lower right of the video area in "settings" you can increase the playback speed - a real time-saver! LOL!  ;D

Again, congrats on the mill!!
