Sad to see the old mill go
« on: November 13, 2017, 10:21:32 pm »
Spent a couple hours giving the new owner the rundown and cut a few boards. Then loaded the mill on his trailer and watched it leave the driveway for the last time. I enjoyed running the old mill, but Iím looking forward to the next chapter with the new mill.

Loading was a piece of cake, just used the tractor with a 2Ē ball in the bucket.

Ah ha, itís good to see you on here! Lots of good info to be shared in these pages. If you decide to add the roller toe boards, the plans/pictures can be found here http://www.forestryforum.com/board/index.php/topic,39860.0.html

I think once you get the hang of the band mill, it will compliment your swing blade very nicely.
