And THE ADVENTURE BEGINS!
« on: August 22, 2013, 12:48:19 PM »
I was quite surprised to find this sitting outside the office just a few minutes ago  :)

 

 

The 15' track is there too...just can't see it in this pic.
Let me tell you how good Ed Zimmerman and his company have been to me:

When ordering the mill, I decided NOT to buy the trailer package that's an additional $400.
I also forgot to add the cost of one of his cant hooks to the order...I just put the check in the mail for the cant hook yesterday. Well, the mill just arrived with the cant hook AND the trailer package! 8)
Just wanted to let everyone know how good EZ Boardwalk treats their customers. I am very glad that I chose to do business with such great people.

That's great! 8) Also that they have enough experience to know what you need so that you don't get disappointed or frustrated later.  That's how a good company treats and keeps customers.

If it wont roll, its not a log; its still a piece of tree.  Sawmills cut logs, not pieces of trees.

Deese
Good looking mill you have there. Are you going to saw in that shop, or move it outside when sawing? Nothing like rubbing off new paint! Keep the pictures coming, and be careful. Have fun.     Andy

Don't rush in and start trying to saw until you have properly set up and aligned all aspects of the mill.  That is a common problem.

Po-Jo   You see that silver bolt in bed track ( bottom left corner of picture) in deeses picture. What is that for?
I have a EZ JR also. That bolt is most likely the bolt to stablize the mill when it is on wheels.  There are two bolts that are used to bolt the black "straps " to the rail when it is being moved.   

By the way Deese, Congrads.......!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

EZ Boardwalk Jr. 30", Husky 455, Kioti 5010 w, FEL , And I just moved to Ohio.and still looking for logs.

God is great!  I will never be as good as the "Carpenter's Son"
