My New Mill Is Finally Home
« on: August 21, 2012, 10:03:06 PM »
 

  

  

  

  

 
Marty brought it to me Friday afternoon. I was like a father expecting a newborn. All week I got very little sleep. I bet I sawed 100,000 board feet of lumber this week dreaming when I did sleep.
He got here about 4:00 and showed me how to set up the mill, and then we went at it until dark. He said that he would have gotten here earlier but right when he was getting ready to leave someone came in and bought a mill. I found out the next day that he did not get back home until 1:30am. It must have been all that money that I gave him for the mill and other toys that kept him awake on the way back home.
 Marty has been very nice and patient with me in the 4 years that I have been researching and deciding on Wood-Mizer. I am happy that I bought it from him and I think he will take care of me and my mill. He has a class coming up in November for sawmill owners and I am going to take it. I think he along with Wood-Mizer really care about the success of the sawmill owners as well as their mills.
 This is one nice mill! The joystick controls do everything! The fine adjustment outriggers make setup so easy. I could go on and on about what I like about this mill. So here are some pics.



I just want to say thank you to everyone that has giving input to my posts as well as the ones on here that I have personally talked to. If it were not for your feedback as well as other posts on this forum I probably would not be undertaking this adventure. I know it is going to be fun! One cannot begin to describe the feeling you get when for years you would waste trees by cutting them up into firewood, not getting the full benefit of that tree. Now you can get so much more out of it when you look at that lumber you cut.

VERY nice mill! Not just drooling but jealous as well. Also, glad to know that someone else took a long time to purchase a mill, but hopefully I will get under your 4 year mark!

That is a very nice mill.  Drool, drool, drool...   :)  I'm sure you'll have lots of fun with that!  But after 4 years of waiting you deserve it too.

There will be not much you can't cut with this mill. And the best part is the mill has the ability to drag back a
7X9 tie!  I have seen these run, and they can get it done.  If I had to do it over I would have went with the 70. This being said, the super 40 is still a good one,  have a great week,
