Glossary of Milling Terms
« on: August 28, 2014, 12:25:44 PM »
Sorry Guys (and Gals), one more Noob question.  Is there a glossary somewhere of milling terms?  As a wood worker I obviously understand some references (kerf, set, rake, gullet, etc) but I get lost trying to read some of the posts strictly associated with mills and milling (I figured out cant from buying, you guessed it, a cant hook).  If one of you would aim me in the correct direction I might be spared from showing my ignorance by constantly asking for translations in the posts!  Who knows, given 20 or 30 years I might even be capable of carrying on an intelligent conversation (something my wife swears is not possible!).  Thanks

Sure, just look up a few inches, above the Gray Grey box and below the Kasco add and you'll see the Forum "Extras" menu.  In there you will find the Forestry Forum dictionary "Woodopedia" and definitions page.

YellowHammerisms:

Take steps to save steps.

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

Kiln drying wood: When the cookies are burned, theyre burned, and you cant fix them.  Dont burn the cookies.

Thank You Sir! you are truly a Gentleman and a Scholar!  Since I'm what you'd call "Computer Challenged" I'll have to dig about and see what other gems of wisdom are lurking just outside the glow of the campfire!
