Paul,heating your headsaw is A right of passage for new sawyers,and a hard lesson learned.When I got my first circular mill up and running everything was crusin the interstate til a chip got between the plate and husk and heated the saw,had to go back to the smith for rehammer.Believe me I watch that area like a hawk and have a hinged section that will flip up if anything gets between the saw and the deck.

I took the plunge yesterday and I bought a used EZ boardwalk JR.  Looking forward to putting that first log on.

I bought it used.  It is 3 years old and seems to have very little use.  I am the third owner and I believe that it has had less than 10 blade changes.  Came with 5 ft track extra track and 3 blades.  Drove about 350-375 miles to get it.  Excited to set it up and use it tonight.  I have two cedar logs at the house I am going to try it on.
