If it's any consolation for anybody I sawed into my backstop the second day I used my new homebuilt mill.
It's now been another two days.
I'm feeling jittery.

Mine are actually wood and I sawed through one today.  Knew I was going to do it but I was to lazy to bang it down with a hammer while halfway through a cut.  The wood is easy to replace.

When I had guides on the guide would hit them and not let me go forward if they where to high.  Same thing with knotts.  I have to have a clean log at the backstop or I have to make my first cut in the middle of the deck and then turn it to the back stop. 

I had metal that I was going to use but never got it cut down to the correct size cause using ripped 2x4s ended up being so easy.

Cheers

Heck, if you're gentle I can see easily replaceable wooden backstops being the cat's pajamas!

I could see this happening to me, so last weekend while waiting for some paint to dry between coats, I added another mod to the LT-15.    ;D    UN
