I was talking to Magicman a while back about making mistakes with the sawmill, and I will never forget what he said...
"You know what the problem is with these sawmills and why we keep breaking things? Because they do exactly what we tell them to do."  :D :D :D :D :D

Deese,  I've never ran a manual mill, so I have nothing to compare your current mill to in regards to experience, but will say I've seen some run at the shoot outs,  and for me it's like describing the difference between a draft horse in the timber to a skidder?  Point being, I think you have done well, with limited damage, you went from horse you lead to a full blown barrel racing quarter horse,,You've held on pretty good,, IMO, and yes they to what you tell them 99% of the time.
only have a few chain saws I'm not suppose to use, but will at times, one dog Dolly, pretty good dog, just not sure what for yet,  working on getting the gardening back in order, and kinda thinking on maybe a small bbq bizz,  thinking about it,

Thanks drobertson, and you are correct about the vast difference between my manual mill and the LT-40 Super51HP. They both can saw flat lumber, but that's about the only similarity.

The new Accuset 2 harness assembly and cable was delivered yesterday. Installing tomorrow morning. Not sure which is the issue, so replacing cable first, checking, then will replace wiring if necessary. It has to be one or the other.
