Thanks costomsawyer  :D  things are going good, but today it rained well a drizzlr. made some wet sawdust :D  to much work ahead to take a day off. :D I have logs to cut at home and under a roof, and only one mill :D  I dont want to pull the mill back and fourth. so I though if I leave 40 at the barn and tied to the 24' ex  I could cut while its raining and leave the new 50 at the job all covered up and I could stay dry :D :D I had to cleen up my sawdust this moring, just to tired yesterday

  you guys are right the other log pile is growing :D

   I caught the arm with a pice of stking and bent it ,when I bent it back  :o

  it broke :D :D :D :D :D i did it before ill fix it again... I think its time to move the mill up for fridays cutting 

   then bring it home to fix it and saw more logs , for a lumber order :D :D when I leave a job and kids live there I try to fix the logs so they dont move

  I try. the costomer wants to buy some dry stikens

  can do :D :D ;D

I'm short of time- too many projects, and I was really stalling about getting to this job. Problem was, the fella kept growing the pile the longer I waited :D Normally I'd be overjoyed to have a nice whack of wood to saw, but the construction loan on our house is due in 2 months, and I have a long wayto go yet. In fact I shouldn't even be on the forum probably :)

So far, mine have not loosened.  Neither while sawing nor transporting.

They are very valuable options.   :)

Great saw job. Thanks for posting. Wouldn't it be great if all customers understood how you need to have the logs. I hope you are enjoying this job because they don't come around very often.

It has been nice watching that log pile grow smaller.  I hope that you take a picture of the lumber pile before you leave.   ;D

I will take some pic of the lumber MM, but he has it all over the place :D  I put in 6 hrs today,rain tomorrow , tue and wen :D. he was saying something about some hemlock logs out in the woods. I don't know what ill find when I get back. When I looked at this job the logs were all over the place. Its when I got there that I saw all the logs in a pile. I have other jobs to get to, I did not think I would have this much wood I'm over 10,000 bf all ready :D and there's more. The next job I saw the 2 piles and there's 10,000 bf. And he wants me there now :D. I didn; t know the job was going to take this long. I can't find a strong back week mind tale man when you need one :D :D :D 8) 8) 8) 8) now I'm going out to cut the grass that's a foot tall :D

Your description is very vivid.  Many times I have left a job for the weekend and there were more when I returned Monday morning than at the beginning.  My present customer is skidding more logs this weekend, so I will see a surprise tomorrow morning.   :o

Peter

Nice to see the end of a good size job. Thanks for the pics.

Hopefully your customer gets his lumber up off the ground so it can dry. That pile next to a building and tight to the ground will stay some wet. ;)

What is the intended use for the stickered lumber in piles?

Looks like a nice ending to a nice saw job.  Thanks for the look around.  I am always glad to finish a job and move on to a new customer and new scenery.   :)

To me, that is the joy of being portable.
