New mill owner!!
« on: September 27, 2006, 03:56:28 PM »

I just returned to Vancouver Island with my new swing mill from D&L.

many thanks to all the staff at D&L, excellent support and Byrian answered all the little niggly questions that a newbie will ask, they even made two mods to accomodate my hand on the swing handle (while I was away at lunch), a GREAT company to work with!! 

hope to get her unpacked from my new work mule and get working on some sawing experience by week's end,

pics to follow next week

(living on an island in the pacific)

You probably will need the swinger for some the timber there. Congratulations 8) 8) Keep us updated (preferably with pictures).

Congratulations, Matt. the pacific.  :D :D

You have a real tool.  No excuses now.

We'll be looking forward to the pictures.  Your island should provide some mighty nice pictures even if it isn't of sawing.  :)
