I had an LT15.  Itís was a very good mill.  

Iím sure the others are as well.  You wonít go wrong getting any of them, will all work and perform well.

From what you said, I would start to consider the ones that you could easily move out of your drive way when you are not using them.

Not to mention, excellant resale value.

Good point, when I sold my LT15, I got more than I expected, and it sold within the first 24 hours of advertising.  I still had it on my flatbed trailer where I had taken it to a car wash to get pressure washed.  I said for a few bucks more Iíd deliver it, as it was still in my trailer.  :D

I just bought a Frontier OS31. I know itís a budget mill but I liked the features from Norwood. It literally just got delivered so I have no idea how well Iíll like it

I would really like to have a "chat" with someone that owns a EZ JR. before I place my order?

Check out the Woodmizer LT 15 on ebay with 5 hours on it in VA.  Two days left on auction and price now is in $5,300 range right now if it stays at this price it will be a steal. Listed as woodmizer sawmill.

Going to place a deposit on a EZ Jr. this coming week.  Thank you to everyone that listened to my rambling.  A shout out to Justallan for a great phone conversation about his Mill.  I should have the Mill sometime in April. Hope the snow is off by then!

I plan on keeping my mill outside at least the first year.  I can move it in two pieces into my tractor shed in the dead of winter.  Does anyone spray their mills with any kind of rust protection? I get my truck sprayed each fall with a Canadian product called Krown. It's available in spray cans and I'm thinking of giving my saw a lite coat while its' outside.  I'm going to make something to cover the sawhead as soon as possible.  Any suggestions?
