You really should learn to post photos. Many folks post one or more with their very first post on the forum.
Kingmt,I think it is more helpful if you respond to comments in order, rather than going back and editing your original post. If you do that there will be comments after the original that won't make any sense because you changed the original. It is easier to follow a thread over time. Many readers only read the unread posts and would miss out on your edits of earlier posts.
what size and where do you get blades?
I wasn't cutting very good lumber with the stock blade so I ordered 4° Wood Maxx blades from Kasco. You'll need to call & talk to Derek to get these since they aren't listed in their site.
This isn't a mod but I think I should add this as well. Cutting Edge (a respected member here) told me to get the proper tension on the blade use a caliper ran out to 6" & clamp it to the slacked blade. Tension the blade until you get .050" of stretch.
Tension the blade until you get .050" of stretch.

Note: To obtain this much tension, a larger outside diameter flat washer is needed that fits snug inside the tube. Otherwise, the rubber insert will deform and start to "squish" out around the stock washer and deform the insert. The replacement washer might have to have the outer diameter ground to get a snug fit.
To obtain .005" or .050" you need the washer? I'm not quite fallowing. What insert?
Well looks like my time is up to be able to edit the first post.

Because of complaints of someone going back and editing posts that effect other peoples subsequent posts, basically altering Forestry Forum content, for the first time in 15 years the privilege to go back and correct a post at a later date has been lost to everyone, You now have a generous courtesy edit time, but after that is up, no more edits without an admin doing it for you.
I made one for my mill using 3" channel. But i dont have a HF mill...
I made this extension so i could cut 16' boards for my HF mill. (Image hidden from quote, click to view.) (Image hidden from quote, click to view.) (Image hidden from quote, click to view.)
Nice work on the extension. Did you modify the angle iron extension? The vertices part of my rails seem to be 2 1/2" high and look to be milled square on top. I'm wanting to extend my mill as well. Any information would be appreciated before I order my angle iron.
also, I saw mostly pine and have had good luck lately with the Cooks excel blades. They ship me 10 blades for $165 ... and they cut pretty nice. ...should work for the HF mill too
