We've sawn out some pretty large beams.  I can't remember the largest single beams but the largest project required 80 10"x10"x18' oak beams and about 100 other beams of various sizes.  It was for a wooden bridge in Nebraska.  We never did get to see the bridge.  I wonder if it's still standing.   smiley_headscratch

Weisy: really like your second post- short and to the point (empty, which is what I should be saying most of the time when I open my mouth...).  Sounds like you've been busy.

I sure all the really deep south forum members- the ones on the south side of the equator!  You all have a great perspective although your accents are a little hard to understand sometimes...
