EmannVB,

Congrats.

I'm also new to this sawmilling, but I can see the addiction to making sawdust. There is a hugh amount of knowledge on this forum, I mostly read all the post and pick up a bunch of good info. and I love the fact people are willing to share experiences good or bad.

I picked up my WM LT40 a couple weeks ago and sawed some cedar and live oak. Well late in the afternoon on my first day of sawing, I decided to get it over with so I hit the log clamp with the debarker. I order a new one last week. It happens, some people it takes days, weeks or years and others like me it takes just a couple of hours.

I am also going to the Texas Forestry Expo. in a couple weeks in Lufkin, Tx. anybody else going?

 Looks like you're all set. Is your property all the woods around the clearing in the picture? If so you will have plenty of wood to saw for a while. 8)

D,

I can see how easy it would be to saw something other than wood!  I was moving pretty slow, so I'm sure as I get faster, it will happen!

Erik,
The overhead encompasses about 2/3 rd's of my property.  It has loads of nice straight Yellow Poplar, Red Oak, Ash, Maple, Cherry, and a few Elm.  Once I'm "officially" retired from the good Uncles servitude, I expect to clear out 10-20 acres- sawing everything that's usable  8)
