Was time to make some changes to my operation.   The Peterson went up for sale on the Peterson website.  It sold for my asking price in about 2 weeks.   Went to a farmer in western PA and his SIL who wanted a new hobby. A lot of good memories, some of it posted here on FF.  Had it about 8 years.

Day before yesterday was harder.   I'll admit to feeling guilty for a few months before this.  But it really hit me when I took the key off of my keychain for my 2001 LT40HDD42-RA and handed it to the new owner.  Went via the Wood-Mizer website for almost my asking price.  4471 hours, 18+ years, 13+yrs in business, and over 1MM BF.  It didn't do anything wrong to deserve this.  I wish the new owner well.  He is not that far away and said I can come visit any time.

So divorcing the old girlfriend just because some new hot sexy shows up with nothing on and all new paint.  Just remember you won't have a 2 girls anymore, just the 1.

Ouch. That's mean.  I said I was sorry.    Some of my downfall was going to a party at Jake's in April, and talking to Southside and Yellowhammer.  Watching 4x4's videos didn't help either.

   Congratulations. I am sure that LT70 wide was just the balm to ease the ache.

There's not much to apologize for.
Most of us leave Jake's Project thinking we need to take a new ankle on things.
Congratulations!

Congratulations on your new sawmill. I started reading your thread and went back to check your age. I thought oh crap he's throwing in the towel and heading for the porch (honestly not a bad thing at all). Then I see that last pic.
Congratulations!

Congratulations on the new mill, but it's still a sad thing to see the old mills leaving!

Best of luck to you!

Don't be blaming me for your mid-life crisis.  :D At the end of the day all, it does not matter if it's a Vette, Bass Boat, LT 70, or whatever, all the sexy, shinny ones end up being high maintenance!!  You gotta pay to play!!  ;D

Nice Upgrade.  I think about upgrading my LT40 sometimes till I look at the price of the LT50 I want!  I bet there is a real difference in the speed of the new mill.

"Some of my downfall was going to a party at Jake's in April, and talking to Southside and Yellowhammer."
I don't know what the lead time is for an LT70, but it does not appear to me to have been a spur of the moment decision.

YH Comment "Thatís true, but the hot new one is MUCH faster than the two old ones combined."
Now you can make designer firewood even faster.

Congratulations on your new toy.

Just like a guy that gets caught cheating. He always blames his friends for being a bad influence. :D

Congratulations.

That's the truth, the 70 is fast enough that it goes from "Here's what I'm going to do" to "What just happened?"

The problem is, I think we ARE a bad influence!! :D :D :D
