I'm with Ed, using Dino. Infinitly adjustable but not easy to figure out ???
Timberwolf / TimberPro sawmill, Woodmizer edger, both with Kubota diesels. '92 Massey Ferguson 50H backhoe, '92 Ford F450 with 14' dump/ flatbed and of course an '88 GMC 3500 pickup.

  • Best way to make the most money with a portable mill is to cut the least lumber you can.

I sharpen blades for customers, I use Cooks Cat Claw with Timberwolf Dual Tooth Setter.
I considered the Dino, but too many people said it was a little complicated to set-up.

I use a grinder made by Wright Tool. It works well. For setting I use a Cooks Catclaw and that works very well.

I also know that Logmaster resells the Wright grinder, and a setter setup on their own table.
