I know the other day in a post I said something about ether capsules, we'll here's some pictures. My father hunted a long time to find that can, and that's liquid ether next to it like you would pour in a primer pump on some of the older machines that where set up for it, powerful stuff.
I don't know how many of you have ever seen a "dynamite wedge", it was used for splitting the over sized logs to get them on the mill carriage. This one works, we have tried it. 😂 you drive it in, pour your powder in thru the hole, add you piece of cord, light and RUN. It works. 👍 we popped a grizzly old hard maple log in half with it one day. My father hunted a long time to find that, they came in alot of varietys depending on where you where in the country.
That's a picture looking into my parents timber frame, every stick of wood in that house with the exception of the beams and the plywood decking came off our sawmill, cherry countertops, spalted maple cabinets, tamarack and hemlock walls, oak floor, it came out real nice and we processed it from the stump to finished product. 40 sets of horn off the farm in that chandelier.
If any of you guys are ever out this way stop in. That store will be loaded with antique farm tools and a couple 2 man saws on the wall, my father and I have been collecting stuff for yrs and hopefully be open this june, the amish are finishing up the tin and windows this week.
