General Discussion / AUCTION! Woodmizer on the chopping block!
« Last post by Kirk Allen on November 13, 2018, 10:17:13 PM »
For those interested, there is a LOT of great stuff at a local auction starting tomorrow. 

One item is a LT40 Hydraulic.  Current bid $4200. 

This is a friend of mine that passed.  Pacific War veteran, retired state police pilot with no family.  Lost his wife a few years ago and he passed last fall. 

The mill has been undercover its whole life and if I recall has less than 500 hrs on it. 

Lots of great stuff for those looking to get into the wood business.
Bandsaw Mills / Carburetor icing
« Last post by Stevem on November 11, 2018, 10:55:13 PM »
On my TimberKing with the onset of colder days I get ice build up on the carburetor.  It's a 27hp Kohler V twin.  On some of the smaller Kohler they have a heater kit for the carb but not mine.
Does anybody else have that problem or know of a fix?
Bandsaw Mills / Winters coming
« Last post by mountainlake on November 07, 2018, 05:52:57 AM »
 Snow on the ground, highs in the mid 20's, lows 10 to 15F. Time to switch over to diesel for lube. I've been running the same v belts since last spring so I put new ones on yesterday as they have to be in good shape when running diesel or they slip off when engaging the engine. One was tough, the other not too bad, seem like some are just a hair smaller. For the first time since 2002 I left the mill in the shed, the skid loader will be in there soon and it will be kicked out.  Steve.
Bandsaw Mills / Pallet Stock

Hello All.

Glad to be part of the forum and read all the interesting discussions. 
As a wholesaler it is interesting to see/hear things from the other side of the supply and demand chain.

I am looking for someone that can cut a skid deck board to 9/16 x 3.5 x 91" in truckload quantities.
Species is not crucial for my buyer. 

ANY feedback would be great!

General Discussion / Stand by generators
« Last post by bandmiller2 on October 26, 2018, 06:39:34 AM »
Some standby generators if unused for a wile or shutdown under load will loose their residual magnetism and no puta out. An easy trick to try is to plug a corded electric drill into a running genny, pull the trigger and give the chuck a good spin with your hand. It should start to run and the generator should be back to normal. This restores just a little magnetism that will build back to normal. I got a nice free generator that didn't put out, and this trick worked, its worth a try. Frank C.
General Discussion / Interest in gasifiers here
« Last post by HaroldCR - AKA Fla.-Deadheader on October 20, 2018, 08:43:13 AM »

 Have a pretty good start on one in CR. I'm presently in Florida. Planning on running my new sawmill build with a 20 HP Honda that refuses to run on gasoline. More info and build threads when I figure out, again, how to post images.

 Gasifier is copy of the best DIY I can find on youtube. Guy even has it automatically operated.

 Check out flash001usa on youtube. Starts at video #18 for the complete DIY instructions.
Bandsaw Mills / Cleaning Rusty Band Blades
« Last post by Kojba on October 17, 2018, 07:10:43 PM »
After getting my new sharpener, I found myself going through my shed, pulling out a ton of old, rusty bands. Anyone would consider them useless, red/orange in color, certainly beyond anything you could send to a sharpening shop.  My son was with me, and he convinced me to try using Muriatic Acid on them.  I've never used MA on metal to remove rust, but what the hell, it was worth a try.
I went down to Lowe's and picked up a gallon for 10 bucks, and proceeded to brush the blades with the acid.  I was surprised at how quickly and easily the rust came off.  I followed up with a dry cloth, and am going to oil them tomorrow. 
If you decide to use this method, make sure you are outside in the open air; wear a respirator, and of course rubber gloves.  I also had some baking soda nearby in case it got on my hands.  It did make the metal a dull color, but I'm not after pretty blades, just sharp ones.  I have about 20 bands to clean, and hopefully it all works out okay.  Has anyone else tried this before?  Any suggestions?
I'll keep you updated on how it turns out.
