Do you have trees you can harvest on your property? I really enjoy watching the videos of saw mills at work, and hope you'll shoot and share some when you get it going. Great, spacious shop.
I guess I missed it but what make and model of sawmill? I have to check it out.I know that I will loose some due to bugs, etc. They have been on the ground for over a year. I did put them on Landscape timbers to slow it down, Whatever I get is all Lagniappe!!!
You might consider some sort of tenting over it to keep rain and snow off of it? I know you have it in your shop, but it takes a lot of space. Or make a lean-to off the side of the shop. Lay some concrete pavers for it to sit on. It's a great machine and worth a little extra protection. I have to admit that I am fascinated by these mills. There are some shows set in Alaska and in a couple of them, a homesteader has one of these. Not only for their own projects, but they provide income as well. You've got to be able to produce some mighty interesting slabs. I have been shocked at how much a slab with interesting grain sells for. Looking forward to seeing how you use it. I know that in some places guys with mills have teamed up with arborists and tree trimmers to get trunks when a tree is removed.Yes that is the one! I bought the one that is the Trailer design. I don't have enough land for it to be stationary. I do have the option to mount it stationary!
It can cut a 24" bark to bark log, 10 1/2 feet long.
Finally someone with a shop smaller than mine! LOL! I'm sure you meant 40', correct?I have a crane that runs the 40" length of my shop!
