I brought a coffee cup full of sawdust to work this morning to prove that I actually crunk up the sawmill! LOL
 There was a lot to learn. I'm pretty sure the square side of my log dogs are backward. If the scale and crank handle is on the right with the adjustable end of the blade guides on the right, it seems like the square side of the log dogs would be on the left, but mine are on the right.
   Plus, I hit three nails. arg. :) 
Thanks for the information about the "log scaling sticks".

Got it all figured out now?
No matter how conventional wisdom may fly in the face of radical thought, it's still the most popular type.

Hey Okrafarmer,
  A little more. I did turn my log dogs around so that the square side is on the left. Opposite the crank handle and the scale. It is a lot better.
However the small 1 inch tall blocks are still on the right. I think one day when I have some stout young fellers around we will have to pick the sawmill up and turn it around. Then, of course, I'll have to turn the log dogs around again.
It works fine until you get down pretty small.  I love raising okra myself. Sweet potatoes grow good in the same type soil. :)
