     As most of you know I've been looking at selling my LT and buying a Peterson.  Well we talked about it on the way home from Ohio and didn't really make any decisions. I have a couple of customers that would go else were because of Kerf Smothness of cut .  They bring in real small logs. I hate to lose any because I have few enough but need the bigger log handeling for myself and a future project.
    I have a bit of money stashed back to upgrade to a better mill and was going to use the money from the sale of the Lt to get a little farther along that road.
              8) Today is my and Katie-did's 13th wedding anniversary 8)

    Well I come home and the wife tells me that she is going to make up the couple of $K differance so I can keep my LT and still buy the swing mill for my anni. present.  She knows how much I want to turn the part time sawing into something more and knows I need the both to do it. 
     Kate you say I never say nice things about you when others are around so here it is in front of EVERYONE
        I LOVE YOU and appreciate all the support you give to me and my hair brain ideas.  Without you none of it would ever happen
                                HAPPY ANNIVERSARY DEAR
Tom

I cann't even remember our 13th. On May 30 we had #41. It sure doesn't seem that long. But I hope for many more. It does get better.

Re: My anniversary gift. A swing mill update ( It finally made it)
« Reply #14 on: August 01, 2005, 11:43:18 PM »
    Well it finally arived today.  THe new peterson is here. 8) 8) 8)

The shipping company screwed up the shipping directions and sent it to the house so my wife sent them down to work so we had a shipping dock to unload it from.

We put it up in the electrical shop and uncrated it.  I figured if it was uncrated we ought to assemble it also.  We had it all put together when the CEO showed up.  I thought that he might not have a sence of humor about 4 guys standing around looking at it but I forgot he has an LT40.  He stayed around for about a half hour and checked everything out.  He asked if I could bring in a log and rip it up in the parking lot before it goes home.   :D    I told him no but he is coming out to the house at lunch to check out the wood pile that showed up while we were on vacation.  THere are now 125 logs in the back yard.(pictures in the morning)

Well it will be two weeks before I get to use it I have to finish up my honey do list before I start.  then the fun starts.  We are starting with some 30 and 40" about 9 foot long and I have a job for a guy that says that he has a log around 50" dia so the fun is about to begin  He wants about half of it in lap siding. Glad I bought that attachment

the wife says she'll do the pictures when the dust starts to fly so here we go.  I feel like I'm in with both feet up to my ears so we'll see what happens.  What a feeling :) :) :) 8) :) :) :)
