Well, Ianab, that's because it's the end of the winter where you live. :D

Here's what it looks like in october where i live.




In the winter, i work for the chairlift company.  So i see plenty of snow.

The closest pass near me is open all winter and  is at 6751ft above sea level. ;D

So is that 250 euros plus VAT? Pretty expensive.

Yep, it is. But they last a fair bit. You're counting may be 12 sharpenings between re stelliting. And 10 times that before the band is dead.

Progress as of today!

All the piers are poured, i mean i've filled 8 more barrels, that we need to bury with a friend.

But i am gutted. I've noticed there's one part missing. The pulley for raising the head. It's nothing. I have a lathe and i know how to use it. But if i had known better, i would have checked that. Pulley should be on the arbor bellow, on the last pic.  :(

Your piers should be stout enough. Won't be any give for sure. Now where is your log pile?

You keep plugging along and you'll be milling before you know it.  Then you're in trouble because everything will look like saw logs.

You keep plugging along and you'll be milling before you know it.  Then you're in trouble because everything will look like saw logs.

Well, question, what is the smallest size log which could be intresting to cut in larch? Got some tonight. We went on a mission with a friend, who had to cut two trees on a mountain path, to do some earthwork.  The feeling of the two trees was not planned, and the wood needed to be cleared quickly.  ;D

So now it's cleared, he's got a few saw logs, may be 2/3 of a cord. And we have those two 13'ish  logs. The middle of that 27'ish straight section was about 13" 14" Off center pith. Fastish growth (well for here. )


And i don't have a wood yard. But a friend of mine has 106 spruce logs planned to build a log home. Sitting about 100 yards from me. And he's complaining that they're roting away. They've been there since his his divorce.  Since he doesn't trust this wood anymore. He's ordered a big load of douglas. So i might have a fair bit of practice wood!  ;D

Common thoughts are a minimum of 10" diameter logs.  But if you're milling for yourself, go as small as what you want to mess with!  I think you'll find the 10" is a good rule of thumb.

I tell my customers that 8" on the small end is my limit.

Any less than 8" and my clamp can't be used, it would work for the opening cut, but when you turn it, the top of the small end will be lower than the top of my clamp.

Wow!  Doesn't look like they were stingy with the steel in the mill our your trucks.  1/2 the price of an LT10.  Not surprising actually, seems like bigger equipment often goes cheap(er).

When you get tired of sawing you can take in the scenery -  beautiful!!
