Ok, decided to have my backstops welded in place a couple weeks ago and it made a world of difference. As I posted above, I was having trouble with the one closest to the operator end getting pushed out of square when I put a big log on. I took the mill to a friend and had him weld the angle, that holds the backstops, to the part of the log deck they are bolted to. I put it to the test last weekend with a big walnut log with a fork in it and was able to roll it with no problem. They held firm and it seems like they are much easier to raise up and down now. I guess if for some reason I have to remove them I can always grind the weld off but I don't see that being an issue. Wish I had done this sooner. I'll try to get some pics posted of the weld so it will be easier to understand.

Thanks Tazz, would love to see your pics.  I'd like to put mine on their as well, but can't figure how to upload the pics.   :) :)  It's snowing here tonight, maybe I'll take the time to learn a new trick on this forum!

I have an uncle that just acquired a used 1600 from a relative passing. I'm assuming it is one of the year models that everyone here is having back stop bending issues with. I took one look at the stops, and thought.. wow, not sure how those stay plumb! I have noticed that TK has recently increased the steel thickness although it isn't helping the older model guys. I would love to see what you all retrofit, so I can pass this along to my uncle. It also appeared that the manual stops were unadjustable? I know that overtime they can get out of square with the bed...anyone have a new set with adjustment buikt in? Not sure if I'm right on the stops being non adjustable, just what it looked like.
