Thank you, I will try to make it in from time to time.  However, coming here is gonna get me bit by the bug and make me start itching to get another mill!  As much as i'd like that, it is not feasible at this time.

How's things going for you?  I have not read up on any of the threads or messages in quite some time.

The rain has virtually stopped my sawing.  I have one customer that is hauling a few logs to my place each week for sawing because the sawmill is set up on a hill.  No one can get into the woods now.

The Cabin Addition is going well and I planed flooring lumber this weekend.  I should be back on that starting tomorrow.  Can't saw, can't sit, gotta work.   ;D

I have heard of some of the guys on this forum getting the mills that harbor freight sells. It is on sale right now for 1799 dollars. I think it looks like the  woodland mill. I own a woodland mill and it works well. The HF one has a 7hp motor but you could put a bigger one on later. It is no board walk junior though. Oh welcome to the forum. Hal
