    I'm hoping Marine Le Pen wins. Not because it would be good for France, which it most likely wouldn't, but for her plans to do a "Frexit" election. That just might be what it takes to completely wreck the EU.

    If the pole felt very sound, I guess I could. Maybe would... if no power or anything attached. And if I guyed it against the load. And I cut small.

    CurSedVoyce replied to a thread milling thread in Chainsaws!
    We can only sell labor currently. I am going after my LTO next month so I can permit the trees and then we are able to mill and sell the wood with out issue. About double our money in some cases. Rob charges out 50-75 per depending if he has someone pulling and stacking or not. A lot of people only want small cut lists and cringe at the hourly. The hourly is cheap by comparison of small amounts of boards. But, small amounts of boards is profitable if they are stacked and stickered, ready to roll if someone just needs a few.

    Ours is up to 8x8, 19'6" long i believe. Height, at least 4' probably more. I think rob has done over 50" in it. I doubt I would want to run it higher than that. Posts are way taller though. It would be a comfort and stability issue. Rob is 6 foot if that gives you any idea. You can buy bigger, it's only money :lol:

    We don't have the slab set up, but we can still get a slab or two out of a log. If we did more hardwoods, or redwood, it would be a consideration.

    I think Gary or someone wanted to see how the sugar pine mills out for my floors. This wood was milled last year. The logs I brought home recent will get milled soon and get stickers and dried for next year. I started laying out the floor today. Just planking it and then filling the gaps. Basically, no joints to tear apart ad kids and animals ruin floors pretty much. Might as well make it easy to replace. I'll keep taking pictures as we progress with descriptions of how it goes down. I will screw these down tomorrow as I tap them together and probably get them sanded at least. Grain should show up better after I start putting finish on them.

    Pretty good, all considered. Tired is all. But I've managed to do my part of the falling this winter, so that is fine.

    This is one point where hardwoods differ a bit from conifers. Hardwoods as in "HARD" woods, that is. The wood doesn't compress much over and under the wedge, so you don't need to pound a lot on your wedges, before cutting to the hinge. They will hold the tree anyway, unless we are talking extreme backlean. In the woods, I don't deal with extreme back lean. I simply decide that it must be God's will that the tree goes with the lean, otherwise why did he/she/it create it with so much lean. So I either fall it with the lean or leave it be. Hence my preferred method is to start the backcut, set as many wedges as I deem necessary and finish the cut. Then pound wedges. As Sean wrote, no use in fighting against a thick hinge when you are trying to wedge a tree over, that energy is better spent elsewhere. Again, I realize I'm thinking like the production faller that I am, always cutting to scale. EVERY advantage gained shows in the paycheck. They may only be little things, but over a season they add up. I can see checking your bar tip if you are running a 60" bar, but on a 24", no way. Burnham, have you ever felled a tree with leaves;)
