Meeting a FF member
« on: July 13, 2017, 05:09:25 pm »
On my way back from dropping my bands off to get sharpened in Belmont NH I stopped at A&P Sawmill.
Pete has invited me to stop in many times and haven't had the chance to stop until today.
Pete was with a customer so his grandson Jake showed me around and told me how the edger worked.
We had a great talk about many things and how his operation worked.He has a great set up.
I watched him and Jake mill up a couple of pine logs for an order they worked together like clock work .
It was nice to see the WM saw some wood and i picked up lots of good ideas for my set up.
Thanks Pete and Jake It was great to meet you both.

Bruno, who sharpens your blades in Belmont?  That's not far from my place and I have not had any blades sharpened yet.  I still have a full box of blades to go but don't want to wait until I am out.

I'm sure it was an excellent visit and watching saw was very informative.
