Wanted to say hi to everyone on the forum, and yes, this is me and my little guy!  I emailed this to Neil a while ago, and can't believe I found it at random on the forum.  All good Neil, thanks for posting this! 

I'll be posting quite a bit more, with more photos and videos too. 

 

 








here are a few additional pictures of what I've been doing.... the day I milled this huge log was the day I went to the hospital w/ my wife to birth our son ... in the picture he is 12 hours old and I'm wearing my new favorite t-shirt!
 
The log was approximately 1800 lbs, 18"x24"x18'+ long.    I'll get a number of 12" beams out of it!
 
The next sawyer is Christopher Matthew at 7lbs 8 oz!

This is the most interesting thread I have yet to see on this forum.
 I really enjoyed reading it and seeing all the pictures.  You folks definately have your act together.
 Thanks for posting.

Well, after a bit over a year with my 126, I have to say I love it. Done went thru about 25 blades to saw up 95% of the lumber that I am building my guess house/camp with.

You can read up on my project here.

http://www.forestryforum.com/board/index.php/topic,82663.0.html

It was past time for me to start getting my mill on a trailer. So I just about finish building that. Very happy the way things came out.

 

 

 

 

The bed is 18' and overall it is 23'. Should work out great for my mill with my extra extension.

With the rain we got the last two days, there is no way I can even get to my mill. :( Besides, dam vertigo came back yesterday and I'm all over the place. >:(

Have to go to New Orleans today to see my heart transplant team. Going to be a rough one.

Been touch and go, but the mill is on the trailer along with power feed. Worked out great.

 

 

Power feed.

 

 

This was before I swapped the motor around. Reason for doing that was to use high speed to reverse the mill head. The controller slows down the motor when reversing it. The reverse speed was just a hair fast, so I had to just slow it down a bit.
