aviation guys would fight over that stuff!  looks like aircraft structural grade to me.  Anyone rebuilding a Stearman Biplane could use it as well.  Nice, nice , nice!  Thanks for posting.  I need to go clean the druel off my keyboard now ;D

Gday

Thats some very nice looking timber you have coming off your mill there Ty  ;) ;D 8) 8) Do you have an ongoing supply of logs coming in in that higher grade log also do they slice alot of boards overthere as down here we generaly saw slicing cants which are 4x4" to 10x10 to put through veneer slicers  ?

Terrifictim we have the 10" ASM 3 phase electric...it works great for us.  We don't have the slabber option but we just use a 3120 and a 5' Alaskan sawmill. 

We get a mixture of some good logs with a lot of bad logs lol...

Just checking to see if you got those knots put in that wood yet.
Two LT70s, Nyle L200 kiln, 4 head planer, 30" double surface planer, Lucus dedicated slaber, Slabmizer, and enough rolling stock and chainsaws to keep it all running.

Your slabbing choice is that just due to infrequent need for slabs or pretty easy to cut softwood with the alaskan or what? thanks.

We don't cut slabs that often so Alaskan works just fine for us.  It's usually around 7min to slab a 12' long piece around 30" wide.  Can't complain about that.  If you were cutting a whole log into slabs it might be a bit much.  We just take one or two then start sawing boards again.

B-W do you cut any hardwoods on the peterson 10" and how does that compare to cutting fir? more passes, slower, don't cut as wide etc would like to hear anything you can say about it.
