I added the wench before I added hydro, so I could turn the log or add ramps to bring the log onto the trailer. Haven't used much.

That looks good. I see lumber stickered in the back too.

Give this a try,really the same thing as above,but this works too.copy it off and follow each step.

I like to go to whatever post or start a new topic first to include a picture.Go to your gallery,it will open in a new window.Click onto your album,then click onto whatever picture you want,it will get bigger,than scroll down a little to find,Insert Image In Post,click onto that,click Yes and that is it. Some have to copy/paste the link to work.I like to hit the enter key at least once or twice to move the picture down away from what I am typing. The enter key really helps to leave some white space if posting more than one picture. Somewheres I think it says to add 10,000 to your user number or something like that to make a clickable icon to your gallery under your user name. Use the preview button to see how it looks and modify it if needed.

Bery, I am a tall guy, too. I find on my LT40 I usually have the tires up on blocks and the outriggers down all the way. I hate bending down, I always run a 24" bar on my chainsaw too, for the same reason. People think I have an ego problem or something, out running a 2' long bar cutting 12" diameter trees :) You're Timbery looks like a very well thought out design, I'd like a closer look at one of those heads. Nice mill.

ok........
 These are my control lines after I load the log. I stand to the back side of the wench  to make sure the log don't come after me as well as I can see all the movement. This takes the place of the cant hook as well as log stop holder.

first pic, I use parts of a cub cadet hydro lift and mad the handles. Had the lines made ( the expense part)
2nd pic- I made it all from my own ideas as well as watching you tube videos of how logs turn and move on different mills. 2 cylinders Power both directions. additional supports to keep shafts from bending and head can be removed for other attachments. This cyl.. moves up and down, it will pick up any size log I wont and shift it in or out from under log or pushing it in.
3rd pic- shows the in and out motion as both cyl., can work at same time. Shown tucked in frame is the 12 volt pump which came from a lift gate of big truck. This saved me thousands of cash as compared to competitor price.

The only down fall to this it it takes 2 big batteries, which I mounted to big interstate in the frame on the inside and under the bed with plex glass cover to keep saw dust off. It will run most of a hard working day but it is simple to have a charger hooked up to keep full power all the time. The mill has a charging system built in but I did not like the idea of have wires and lines running back and forth with the head.

I made some forks for my IH 2504 3000 loader out of frame rails off a case 1370. They hook up to my quick attach loader and seem to work out well. This speeds up the process as well as saves my back. I stopped using the cant hook as soon as my hydro project started working out.

I was trying to explain these 3 pic's but another window came up and said I could not comment on this topic and had to start my own topic. This topic was about the Timbery mills I thought.

pic 1- shown the pulley drive system. No electric clutch to replace.
pic 3- shows cam tension handle for blade, no brains needed.
pic 2- shows 20.5 Subaru engine with tac., and hr meter. Runs smooth

I will start a new topic to show other pic's. Sorry.

Don't understand that.
Are you using the "Preview" button to see what your post looks like, and then making the editing changes to add the wording you want in between the url code for the pics?

The limitation you suggested doesn't make sense to me. Just curious. No need to start a new thread or add a post to correct a previous post. Just use the Modify button to correct/edit a post. ;) Should work real well for you, and enjoying the pics.

I'm not sure if it was do to some thing I did or did not do but thanks for the explaining. I thought may be I was posting to many of my photos here and may be the forum did not like me doing that. But after you said your enjoying the pic's, then  that tells me it is ok to show more.
 The thing I don't understand or really like, is the pics in my gallery is also shown in a public gallery that all can see. Is this right? If so, how do I hide them from any one seeing them or is this the way this site is set up??

Once you put a picture in your gallery I think it becomes the property of the ff or something like that. BUT no one else can come and take your pictures and use them in a bad way or make money or claim that this is my picture. Just so you know I can go in to your gallery and post a picture on here. Most times it's done just to show a new member that the picture is there and this is how you do it.

To clarify the photo thing.

You are "By uploading photos to the Forestry Forum, you grant to the Forestry Forum a non-exclusive licence in all media throughout the world".

This means that they are still your pictures, you can do whatever else you want with them, but the FF can display them any place in the world.

Also "The Forestry Forum will not make any commercial use of the photographs outside of the Forestry Forum servers without further negotiation with you" So Jeff undertakes not to sell of the images to anyone else, without asking you first.

If any images were to be "Locked down" then they become invisible to anyone casually browsing the forum, the dreaded Red X comes up, and the post is kind of pointless. So the images remain viewable to the general internet. A lot of folks browse the forum, find the info they wanted, but never get around to signing up. While that's a pity, we are OK with this, it's not a top secret site  ;)

If there are things that you would rather not have seen, best you don't post them on the internet AT ALL. .  Seems a lot of celebrities haven't learnt this simple rule  ;) :D

That's ok on them keeping my photos. Face book is the same way. Thanks for all your help.  Here is some of my wood I cut this summer. I have most of it in the barn for the winter. All the wood In these pictures were down trees, some dead for 5-8 years and some with the bark all off. We have lots of cherry/ash. Some walnut, oak and popular. I have too much all ready and have been cutting logs up in mostly 13 ' long pieces from a major project clearing for a water way from one of our farms. I don't really have it figured how many board feet I have in the barn. Looks like 3-4'wide by12 ' high by12' long area. I all ready have a full time job. This was sapose to be a past time.
