Does this set look a little, one sided?
« on: March 16, 2014, 11:22:02 PM »




 :D That's what happen when I hit a nail in the dead center of a 18" pine, about 2 feet from the base. This is what happens when you let your mill sit neglected for almost a year. This was the last cut in the first log.



In the end I got some BEAUTIFUL pine out of it! Well worth the hassle. Check out that seriously blue stained piece!





End of the day, man does it feel good to make some dust again!

Ouch! Never seen that many teeth bent in a row like that. Sure must have been a big nail.

Redbeard, and only part is in the picture. That whole ring or about 1/3 of the blade is bent like that. Hit plenty of nails in my time and never seen anything like it.

I think that nail had dreams of becoming a side stop :D.

I've noticed that when the nail is straight up and down, I can usually finish the cut. It's the angled nails that do the real damage. Mind you, I've never quite had one that bad :o.

It all depends how you hit a nail, perpendicular no big deal but a glancing parallel hit plays hobb. Frank C.

I've hit lots of nails while sawing, but I haven't gotten that much damage just by hitting a nail or even 3 at the same time!

Where I've gotten the most damage so far has been hitting sheetrock screws, but as I understand it, hitting a ceramic or porcelain insulator will total out a blade almost instantly!

I hit one of two links from a 3/8" chain that was about 3" out from the heart of a pecan log.  Every tooth was 're-set' about 75 left.  Couldn't even back up, had to chisel and chainsaw the slab away to find it - hardly any stain.  The other link was secured with a heavy nail. 

Milling pecan in the rain...
 

 

Two slabs later...

" hardly any stain",  Hickory, and I believe pecan are some of the wood types that have shown me no indication
of metal, pine being another,  not sure why this is,  but it is a pretty sure bet the only way to find it is with a metal detector on these types,
only have a few chain saws I'm not suppose to use, but will at times, one dog Dolly, pretty good dog, just not sure what for yet,  working on getting the gardening back in order, and kinda thinking on maybe a small bbq bizz,  thinking about it,

That's for sawing around a corner!
