When you block the mill up make sure that you can slide it side to side a bit on the cribbing.  With as wide as that thing is I don't think your going to be able to make the right side cut without moving it a bit.
Just a thought, I think I thunk of. :)

Just did a search on the following address:

4430 Helgesen Dr
Madison, WI 53718-6700


1154 miles just might[/b] be pushing it somewhat. ;)  Sorry I won't be there, but it'll be great to read about how everything went. :P

By the way, great shot of your skidder, Corley5. :)

This adventure has gone from "discovering" a huge redwood log in Wisconsin to looking for an inflatable gal. What's next?   ???

 :D :D

Well we have not even begun to discuss what's being served at the demo, so maybe it's time after three pages to finally turn this thread over to FOOD! :D
