Introduction from Kansas City
« on: September 09, 2020, 01:48:40 PM »
Hello All!  I have been on and off the forum over the last several years and finally decided to reach out and introduce myself.
  
I have been researching and daydreaming about having a sawmill for the last 10 years.  Bought a couple of plans to build one myself, but never could find the time.  I've always enjoyed woodworking as a hobby and got my BS in Forestry.  I spent the last 14 years as a Environmental Scientist working on site cleanup and remediation in an engineering consulting firm.  In January I was able to leave the corporate world and pursue my interests the real estate world (specifically land).  

I had finally decided that I was going to bite the bullet and purchase a new TK 1200 from TimberKing by the end of 2020.  I just happened to see a TimberKing B-20 that was for sale locally, and took a trip to go look at it.  Next thing I know, I'm pulling it home and hooking up a trailer to go back the next morning to pick up a bunch of other pieces of equipment.  I'm now the proud owner of a 2003 B-20.  As part of the package I also purchased 2 Woodmaster 718 planers, a lap siding jig for the mill, sharpening equipment, and a Nyle L2000 kiln that was still new in the box(s).  
The B-20 had a little over 100 hrs on it, but I went ahead and took it in to TimberKing since they are local to really look over it.  I can't say enough good things about those guys.  They spent a bunch of time with me walking me through everything and took care of some things on the mill that needed to be replaced.  

I finally had a chance to make some sawdust this weekend and had an absolute blast.  Ended up cutting several pieces for a pavilion that will be in the works soon.  

I'm still going through the other pieces of equipment, and starting to brainstorm on how I want to set up the kiln. 
 
Looking forward to being active on the forum and learning from everyone.

Thanks,
Daniel

Welcome Dearhart.  Looks like a nice set up you have. We are in Raymore and have a small mill.
May we can get to gather and talk milling.

Wow the bug bit big time!   You held out well but in the end got real sick with it.   I hope you have great luck with the equipment and safe fun with your new tools!  I look forward to hearing of your adventures as you set stuff up.

Welcome to the forum.  Be sure to let us know when you become a professional. (Hitting a piece of mill metal with your saw blade qualifies).  Nice pile of sawdust.  And the fun will never end.

Hey Deerhart, 
  I will have to look you up. I'm local, just outside of Smithville. I haven't started milling but have a Ez Boardwalk 40 on order. So, in a month or so I'll be taking the plunge too. I have some acreage with lots of trees so there will be sawdust flying soon.
