Jeff, that is one neat process that you have going there. I have never been inside a commercial sawmill, at least not where the actual sawing takes place. The speed and automation of your outfit is down right astonishing. Just out of curosity, do you allow visitors to your mill?
The mills that I have been to strictly forbid anyone in the mill house, they didnt care how savy you were or who you knew around the place.
I even made my wife come take a squint at that video of yours, all she said was, "that is really neat, and no you cant have one. You got plenty of sawdust out back as it is"

Sure, I have guests whenever I want. Usually the boss is glad to give the nickle tour of the whole place if he is there, usually thats the good way to do it because when I am there I am pretty much tied to the saw cab. I love having visitors. It makes my day go by quicker.

We dont let people wander around unsupervised, but I have never saw a time when somebody wanted a tour that they were turned down. :)

Well, I just might have to drop in on you then. We are hopefully moving this spring to our new home in TN, and after the move have some time to travel. My wife has family in your neck of the woods, and would love a chance to go up there. She until this past summer has never been outside of Alabama and Mississippi. Has never seen snow, ice, or anything cold.
Man, is she in for a surprise with the winters you all have up there....

Your telling me! When my wife and i were dating, I lived in the Pacific Northwest, she lived in MS. She sent me a box of grits to try. I had no idea how to cook them, and to ignorant to read the box. It was a box of several different flavored ones. I was going on a camp out with a bunch of kids from the YMCA, and I brought the grits along to show the kids. Not thinking I dumped all the packets in the pot and cooked em up. Cooked em a little to long as it turned out. Fed em to the kids, and tasted a bit myself. Needless to say we decided that grits were for Southern folks, and we would stick to the rainbow trout we had caught that morning, along with our oatmeal.
Also made the mistake of not cleaning that pot right away, had a devil of a time chipping that stuff out later that afternoon.Tried a little bit on a hook later that evening, the fish didnt like em any better than we did. :D

Jeff,
That is the first I've seen that video. WOW ! You sure do follow the KSIW method of sawing. Approx what was the diameter of those logs ? I can see why your neck is wore out by the way the camera was panning back and forth. Who did the camera work ?  Next time I'm up there, I would like to see it in person. Thanks for the video.

I would guess the first log around 10 inches and the second one about 14. Tammy was running the camera and yep, thats the reason my neck is wore out. :)
