Title: Thanksgiving thank you!
Post by: mad murdock on November 07, 2016, 04:02:00 PM
I want to thank NZJake and Mike at TSMUSA for the very good service provided in the mill selection process.  I am anxiously awaiting an M6 Ultralightweight that I will be using to access difficult to reach old growth fir, WRC and other species.  I am excited to say the least to get some sawdust flying 8) I am so impressed with the capabilities of Turbosawmills line, and especially the extreme mobility offered in the M6 I have selected.  I will be reporting back with pics of the nice timber this will allow me to access and turn into high value end produccts!
Thanks again and I hope you all have a great Thanksgiving season!

Did you get your machine yet? My slabber should be loaded on container tomorrow 12/22. I'm going to try to get up the Frank's (seaman) one day before it gets here to just watch and help him with his Lucas when he slabbing just to pickup some pointers. Not the same mill but still does the same thing.

I spoke with Mike today and it was shipped to port in CA.  He is contacting the shipping co to see if it can be dropped in PDX, will be an easy pick up for me then, I am about 45 mi. SW of PDX.  I was on vacation for the last half of Dec and got back mid week last week.  Just taking time to catch up on things.  I will post pics when I get it in hand and get it going.  Going to be some good times!

Jake got back to me yesterday and they say it should arrive at port in about a week. Both machines must be in the same container.

Finally got all my pieces so I can do a final assembly by the weekend 8) 8)  The overall look and build of the pieces is very good, workmanship looks to be first rate all the way.  The snafu's encountered by my shipment and others here stateside I think will be an exception moving forward as the freight forwarder whom had caused all the mixed up shipments is no longer handling freight for Mike.  My last piece showed up yesterday at my work from Kansas City, after having been wrongly shipped there over 2 weeks ago.  Pics coming hopefully within the week   8) 8)
