They Gone, Moving on...
« on: October 31, 2019, 11:47:52 AM »
 

 

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.



 

 

 

 

Trying this one for a while.

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 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.

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.

Now you can make designer firewood even faster.

Congratulations on your new toy.
