Bandsaw Mills / Woodland Mills HM130 arrived today
« Last post by JrSawyer on March 22, 2018, 10:40:39 PM »
Picked up my new mill today.  Spent the last few months of researching and talking to different manufacturers, and I settled on the Woodland Mill.  14 hp Kohler, 30'' log capacity with 22'' max board width.  I think it gave me the best bang for my buck on an entry level mill, and the company is top notch to deal with.  Added one 6 ft track extension, 10 extra blades, and a couple 4' cant hooks to get me started. 

Still a fair bit of snow on the ground out on my property so I have a couple weeks to chip away at assembling it in the shop.  Also have to build some toe boards & maybe a log loading winch & ramp setup. 

I'll post a bit of a review for anyone interested after I get some hours on this thing.

Anyone familiar with the VPN, that is a way to keep your browsing the internet obscure to these violations of privacy from bots ? As far as I can understand, your computer uses various encrypted locations for internet access. ??

It's not a big deal, but one that just got my attention while viewing the topics and recent posts, It has to do with the banner on the bottom, I never really gave it much consideration until this time.  You see it was earlier today that I was searching for ideas and options on DIY spray foam insulation.  And low and behold one of the very companies I looked into came up on the bottom ad banner,, I'm just curious as to how this works, if anyone knows,  and as of now, its Jc Penney, my wife was looking for toddler clothing just the other night,,

On the OTHER my tag line list what kind of mill and some of the equipment I use, the last item is a few old huskys.
Now we are talking sawmill and logging equipment so I never thought about somebody thinking sled dogs, but I got a call from a member while ago, that actually lives up here in a bush village on the Yukon, and he ask if I was still running dogs. lol

Well yea, kinda, but mine are orange, and I have to mix gas for them. lol
General Discussion / New job hauling logs
« Last post by starmac on March 15, 2018, 08:02:15 PM »
Well it appears the dirt job I have for this summer has some logs to haul, but nothing like I have ever done or even heard of .

It seems we are going to be working on a reclamation project, and once getting it back up to grade and new topsoil spread, we have to haul in 124,000 trees, complete with roots, limbs and leaves or needles. lol
These will be hauled in side dumps and just strewn over it  every which a way.
Welcome! / Hello from a new member

Hi fellas,

New guy here, figured I'd say hello and thanks for the add.  Looks like a decent group of people here.

As for me, I grew up logging and running my dads early model Norwood mill.  Been quite a few years since I did that, but recently bought a nice chunk of property with good timber on it so will be back logging and sawmilling as we start building on the place.  Have new mill coming, just waiting for the snow to melt now.

As a side note, I joined the forestry forum earlier but it didn't take long to see that place is run by a little wanna-be Hitler  :laugh:.  This forum looks like a much better fit.

Welcome! / First post and a Logosol M8 on the way
« Last post by ibwaldo on March 09, 2018, 10:28:01 PM »
Hello everyone, I am taking the plunge into a new hobby with a Logosol M8 chainsaw mill.  I'm hoping I made the right choice in my mill and any feedback, tips, tricks, or advice from anyone that has used one would be great!  I just picked up a new Stihl MS 661 C-M chainsaw with a 25" bar that will mostly live in the mill.  I will be getting some rip chains sometime next week as my local dealer needs to order them.

Right now my plans for the mill are to get familiar with it by playing around and making some dimensional lumber out of the common to Oklahoma trees.  Latter I plan on making resin top tables as a hobby with my soon to be wife.  She is by far the more creative one and will be the driving force for us to spend some quality time together and maybe end up with a self sustaining hobby that keeps us out of trouble (we can all dream right?).

I have to admit up front that I am new to woodworking and have never even seen a small mill like I have coming my way in person...  So, please point me to places where I can learn the proper terms for milling. That way I will understand the advice that is given and don't worry if you feel as though you are talking down to me, I need to learn somehow!  Do any members have a similar mill?  If so, I'm all ears to make sure I get the most out of my investment! 

Thanks for any thoughts, advice, and tips.  I'm actually really excited to begin a new hobby.

A number of you folks probably recognize me from the other forum.  I happened on this forum, again, while thinking about getting another sawmill.  I sold my other mills due to health reasons and just can't sit still.  I enjoyed the discussion I landed on and decided to join.  If you're in my area let me know and we can meet.
