Short logs and operator error
« on: August 08, 2017, 11:01:18 pm »
Not exactly what you want to look down the bed of the mill and see >:(.
Sad part is I had it loaded once and accidently rolled the DanG thing off myself :o :o :o!
Guess it will just have to sit there and wait for me to move the trailer and fetch a skidloader :-\.
When I finally got it back on the mill it did make some nice crotch grain slabs. :) :) :)

Short logs take some extra time . Someone with a chainsaw sawmill or maybe an LT 10 can really learn a lot trying to make lumber.
We have a lot of good boys and girls in harms way
lets all support them and their familys.
