Met a FF Member & Son, Today
« on: April 09, 2005, 07:23:32 PM »

 Today was great. Had a chance to meet Member Woodbowl and his Son, Justin. Great folks.

  We trashed talked about everybody and exchanged ideas on how to build the worlds best Sawmills.  ;D ;D ;D

  Actually, we had a very nice visit. Olen is a super nice guy and we reviewed pics of sawmills and trailer loaders and talked about ways to saw boards.

  He was interested in our supply of parts for the Swinger Ed and I were going to build. He inspected the gearbox extension that I started turning on the metal lathe.

  Justin, on the other hand, is WAAAYYYYY too talkative. We could hardly get a word out before Justin would take over the conversation. 

  Naaahhhhhhhhh.  Justin is a great kid. Hardly said a dozen words.

  These guys are into Ultralight Aircraft. I had some interest one time, but, I get motion sickness, so, piloting an aircraft at 2000 ft and getting dizzy, or worse, would not be cool, so, I backed away from that adventure. ;D ;D ;D

  Sure was a good way to spend a day, meeting new folks.  Thanks Guys.

He's being successful at his attempts TnLogger,, I can't buy enough logs to keep Woody running and can't move what he's sold fast enough to keep the yard clear. We had a backup of lumber and shipped 4 loads of lumber and 2 loads of cants/timbers lastweek just to get the inventory down. The neighbors were complaining about how high the piles were getting.

I like your suggestion of Woody letting me run it a little, I've got a total of 30 minutes on the mill in the past 4 weeks.....     :'(  I'm on WM-DT's
