The reason I was asking.  I found out over winter, when I was loading salt at the local feed mill.  Jr and I were ask to hang around a while (short time) And ask to step in the back of the store ( where the mill equipment was) Now mind you it was -20, so gettin out of the cold is always good.  Store closes and we head to the back and we see a bunch of friends and aquaintences sittin around on the feed bags shoot in the ADMIN LANGUAGE EDIT. the owner breaks out a gunny sack of peanuts sold for squirrl feed and a fridge full of beer N soda.  he says every day is a rat race these days we need to catch up.  Most farmers have quit farming around here ( do to suburbia ) and the it seem more horse people are at the mill.  Talking about horse people,  the owner says,  They all want canadian oats, now wi. used to be the oats capital of the world.  Now almost no oats at all arund here, corn and beans .  the owner says the price to get canadian oats here pays a preimum, So in a nutshell with a bunch of semi old farmers gathered round the mill on a cold day, it made me thinks of Lyles oats.  Have a good day    Lazerdan

Hi Lyle  Haven't heard from you much lately . How is the saw mill running . Are you still working it or have you gone back to farming . I really enjoyed following your build and have wondered quite a few times what had become of you . scouter Joe

I read thru your build yesterday. Very impressive. If and when you get a chance, a short video of your saw mill in operation would be sweet. :D Oh, I didn't see what kind of mill you have or just missed that part. What is it?

Hello Lyle, you've been a great inspiration for me. I love you're building roof on the ground and then lifting up in place, it makes it so much easier. I kinda copied the conveyor coming off your circular saw, it works good for cutting alone.Please keep up the good work, and pictures for us that cut alone on circle saws.Merry Christmas
