And so it begins . .
« on: October 07, 2020, 04:24:22 PM »
When I ordered it the site said back ordered by about 4 weeks.

Pleasantly surprised to receive a call (roughly 9 days after ordering) from the freight company to schedule delivery.

Really looking forward to getting it put together and getting to sawing.

Have a lot to learn, watched darn near every YouTube video about this mill and a ton about sawing/timber framing in general.

Thank you all. Pretty welcoming place for n00bs as far as I can tell.

Enjoy your mill and take your time with assembly. Do it right the first time. I have the same model purchased last year and have no regrets.

Jason, I know this is what you like to hear!  I hope you get it assembled and a chance to make some sawdust soon!

Welcome to the Forestry Forum, jasonwarford!

Even though it gets tiring, you'll enjoy sawing!

Congratulations and welcome to the Forum.  May as well get it assembled, put a band on it, and run the band right into a back stop, full speed ahead.  Get it out of the way so you can focus on sawing wood rather worrying about doing that.   :D

Just remember, there are two types of sawyers - those who try to cut pieces off their mill off using the saw head, and those who lie about never having done so.   ;D
