Congratulations!
Considering the time it took to get your plaque, I feel my somewhat tardy congratulatory message will still count.  :)

Thanks guys,  this all should of gone down in 2004 or even sooner, procrastination took over for a few years and then the move and all. I have sawed a lot of wood since then and now am working on sawing my third 7 digit. Keeping track of all the blades and repairs was easy as the books where kept in a way to find this info quick.
  I was lucky to have all the sawing I wanted and then some  and not have to travel any more then an hour away, even those where concidered far. Many timber frames have put the numbers up quickly, log houses also put out large numbers when sawing purlins and beams to floor joists and we have sawed for many many of those.
  I don't think I have ever refused to saw a pile of wood that was accessible and stacked in a way that the logs could be rolled to the mill. No matter the size of the pile, if they made the effort to place it nicely it was sawed, some where small and realy did not ''make'' enough to pay for the trip, but those often led to a bigger saw job some time down the road.
  I have had alot of fun and made a great deal of friends because of the mill and milling, still do. It has been, for me, the most gratifying purchase I have made.

 I will make another thread on the reason I bought my mill.... it was not for sawing.  ;)

Nice statement, and if the customer has a tractor/FEL, even wacko logs can be managed and sawed.  That attitude leads to a successful sawing business.   smiley_thumbsup

I got a whack of wacko logs today.  Dog-legged cherry.  My assessment on the whole -AWFUL.
