I am still alive.  Sawing and drying still happening.  The kiln was down for a few weeks, this last Summer, due to the hot and dry conditions.  This was the only time in 18 years of kiln operation.   Still sending wood around the country, from time to time.   Just sent a 9' x 3" x 19" Pin Oak slab to Yuma.

Welcome! / Well, I just joined
« Last post by kelLOGg on January 15, 2018, 05:25:57 AM »
I've been sawing for 15 years on my Cooks MP32. I have a small operation compared to most of the guys whose posts I read and I enjoy it. I saw mostly for others but logs find their way to me so I now can air dry and DH dry for my own projects as well as selling some lumber. I enjoy wood working and welding and have used both skills to modify my mill making it easier to handle logs. I recognize quite a few of the posters here from another forum so I already feel at home. Enough for now, I'm going to read some more.

General Discussion / Sams

It looks like Sams is closing a good number of stores, including all of their Alaska stores.

I found it funny, the doomed stores were closed today, supposedly to tell everyone affected that they would be closing at a later date.

General Discussion / Favorite Hatchet?
« Last post by drobertson on January 11, 2018, 06:48:34 AM »
I used what has turned out to be my favorite hatchet,(brand) yesterday, It's the Estwing with the leather grip, my previous one ended up at another's place. So my wife got one for me this past Christmas. This got me wondering, since I googled it back in Dec, I'm getting all kinds of suggestions that pop up for all makes and models, which ones do you guys have and like?

General Discussion / Hemlock questions
« Last post by starmac on January 07, 2018, 06:28:19 PM »
I have some questions for you timber gurus, err experts, or anybody else that knows anything about hemlock. lol

Would hemlock be suitable for bridge decking?
How about blocking, I assume so, but have never been around hemlock at all.
How about board road or mats?
It does not need to have a long life expectancy, but at least 3 years would be nice.

Also I have heard that hemlock does not float, is this true??
