Looking to see what folks are running.   Feel free to add your mill to the inventory list.  More than one mill?  No problem.  You have multiple votes.

 Home built Band Mill and Peterson Swing Blade.
All truth passes through three stages:
   First, it is ridiculed;
   Second, it is violently opposed; and
   Third, it is accepted as self-evident.

1948 Corley #5, 16' 3 headblock carriage and 54' of track with shop built three blade edger, and a couple old stickers.  Mill currently has a G403 Minneapolis Moline power unit but I've got a 110hp UB 264 IH gas power unit to hook up.  2005 14-12 Block Buster firewood processor.  It's a mill it just cross cuts rather than rips ;) :)
