  Hello all, took some photos today to kind of show how the mill works. Seeing a meadow carriage growing up this mill does look really different compared to that. Instead of having wheels on the  carriage it has roller bearings for a track, I looked up Jackson Lumber harvester as mentioned above and it is a spot on twin. (Beside being a left handed mill)???  The photos I posted are misleading, the mill is very used, mostly the head blocks and set work are “usable” at best. I painted it as soon as I got it. I only have a little Lincoln 220 welder that’s why it by my house now. In the photos I’ve added it shows the carriage on both ends of the mill. It’s easier to see that way. Btw the power unit is a Detroit 4-71. Hope it can pull it!

Update, I got a meadows stand rule today!!... I also had a question if anyone could help? My mill was converted to hydraulic feed along time ago but the control valve is gone. I was told that if you didn’t have special kind of valve you’d break cables all the time on the carriage. Does anyone know off hand what kind of control valve I’d need to get? Thanks!!

What they are saying is you want a motor spool style valve. This should allow the carriage to coast when the valve is in neutral. This is the way a mechanical feed works. You use the opposite direction for a brake. I am not sure that this is the absolute best valve to have but they are not really that expensive and it's always nice to have a new spool valve that does not leak. Surplus center is where I would buy it.   Keep you ears open to other suggestions as I would think some valves throttle better than others. [ and keep us posted]

Yeah that makes sense,a sudden stop would be hard on the old carriage. I watched a few videos on different types of control valves but wasn’t sure which kind sawmills used. I’ll be sure to check that place out that you mentioned. I’m hoping for a “best cheap” valve. I went to rural king just to kind of see what they carried and prices. I don’t think they can help me....lol

I had a guy that had taught hydraulics doing mill maintenance for me.  Before that, I would go to a hydraulic shop to pick their brain.  I got lots of good info and they usually set me up with what I needed.  Farm implement shops are often decent in their hydraulic knowledge and sometimes have some used stuff.  

Moodnacreek is correct about how it works.  I think what you want is a motor spool valve.  That allows the hydraulic to go to tank when not in use and that allows it to float.  
Never under estimate the power of stupid people in large groups.
