Once you have them in your gallery it's easy. Bring up the picture in the gallery, and scroll down a bit.

Find the part that says."To use the above photo in a Forestry Forum post" and below that there is a box with this code in it.

Just copy and paste that into your post, and you will get your picture.

Ianab, thanks for the help. I hope everyone enjoys the pics. The log turners are raised by 1500 lbs. linear actuator that are wireless remote and wireless motor for drives.

I see the linear actuator and winch motor for the log turner.  Are those wheelchair motors for the up/down and feed fwd/rev?

Very nice!! I have the same mill and I'm in the process of doing some of the same mods you did. Already have pineywoods turner/clamp and hydraulic backstops. Just got the motor I'll use for the head up and down. How many rpm is the motor  to raise/lift the head?? Probably going to use a hyd motor for moving the sawhead. Then i will probably do a chain turner and rolker toe boards after that.

OX, The drive motor and lift motor are regular gear motors 150/160 rpm they also come in 75/80 rpm. Their around 110.00 each. Everything on the carriage head uses the starting battery. The turners use the aux. battery on the deck.
