Peter--Seems to me you came out of a bad situation smelling like a rose ;D.  Glad it all worked out.  Have had to replace a broken velocity fuse--they don't give those away!!!
Loggah--with me it's usually two steps back, one forward....that's why everyone is so far ahead of me :D.  All the best, Rob.

Should have it running this weekend.

Cutting long wood, sometimes you have to trim.
 

  

 
I run 40' of rollers to cut the side boards on, makes it easy to cut to length.
 

 
 

Then see it go. :D :D :D :D
 

  

 

Then more 26' show up. ::)
 

 

I ran out of 8' logs, so I cut 16' in ˝
 

  
I go through the logs and pick the long ones, 16'8"+. That way I have at least 4" of trim on my lumber. What a pain.  ::) ::)

4x4 hows it going ?  Rain enough for you ?  :D :D :D :D
Bruno, I bet your wet too.  :D :D :D
I'm about sick of the rain.

Don't want to dead stack Pine for too long with all the rain.
I tell customers the wood won't wait for you to stick it to keep it from getting moldy ;D

With a sawmill you have to have a lot of logs in the yard. $$$$$$$$$ is all you need to start a lumber yard. And want to work 12 hour days.  :D :D
