Newbie w/ LT-10
« on: December 20, 2010, 07:01:55 PM »
  Been snooping for a while, even own a small mill, so thought I better pull the trigger and join.  Bought a used mill to saw up some three sided cabin logs with a friend out in the bush, more addicting then crack.  Ringed the trees three years ago, cut two years ago, and milled last year.  Just got a roof on before winter hit. 
Work and live in NP, just outside of Fairbanks, but have a few cabins in the bush I play at.  Like to get outside and play alot, so hunting/fishing/trapping/etc are always on the fun list.
Thinking about another mill (the LT-10 fits in a boat really good, so I will keep it) to do some projects around here. 
I really enjoy the forum, very informative, so keep up the good work!

Welcome to FF NPK!  You don't happen to work for Santa, here to see who's naughty and nice?  :D :D

It makes me cold to think about the North Pole.  Looking forward to sharing with you here.

Welcome to the forum. Those LT 10's are neat little mills.

Lucky to own a WM LT40HDD35, blessed to have a wife that encouraged me to buy it.     Now that\'s true love!

Welcome to the forum North Pole Kid. I think we'd like to see a picture of your mill in a boat. That might be a first here.
