pine and oak job in Northern New Jersey.

I had a guy call me today about a custom milling job in Clinton NJ.   It's a little too far for me.  Said he had 12 logs to be milled. Oak and pine.  Message me if you are interested.

My first "road trip" job was 162 miles from home.  True, it challenged my comfort zone but it taught me to follow the jobs.  Since then, I have sawed several that exceeded 200 miles.  Just add a mileage/setup fee that is agreeable with both of you.  On jobs that exceed a day's work, the customer provides lodging.

If you are going to provide a portable sawmilling service, you gotta follow the $$$.

My business focus isn't providing a portable mill service.  I will do it if I have the time and it is near by.  But this job doesn't fit either of those criteria.
