    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.

    woodworkingboy replied to a thread Homemade Charcoal in MBTV
    Good lesson, cool thread! I used to know a guy that was a charcoal making fool, including the more difficult real hard type binchotan charcoal that keeps it's heat longer, before turning to ash. It's the stuff that the yakitori restaurants use. He had a way of making regular charcoal where he used a barrel buried in the ground, but I've forgotten the explanation. I'm wondering though, what would be the results if you had the inner barrel set in upright with a lid on it, and built the fire on top of that? Maybe that was the method I was told once, being done in the ground? Do you think it would work similar to your way of doing it? There used to be charcoal kilns all about in the hills in these parts, you still run across them. Warmth in residences created by people sitting with their legs put under charcoal brazier tables covered with a heavy blanket. The burner is on the underside and puts out a nice cozy heat that is adjustable with the air intake. Just add to it during the day. We still use one, generally women get to be experts at it, keep it going all of the time, but now buy large bags of special briquettes that are safer to use. Cheap Chinese imports killed the charcoal making trade in this country. Electric heating tables have become far more common as well, a flip of a switch for on and off, but the heat isn't nearly as nice as the charcoal ones. Charcoal sure is useful stuff, an essential commodity in the old days.

    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.

    One thing about a chainsaw mill that doesn't often get mentioned, is that you can carry it to the location of a tree. A band mill or some other larger device may not afford that opportunity. I've milled some boards that were valuable enough to carry a distance one at a time.

    Judging by what I see at a welders place close by, fabricators working in stainless have all kinds of bits and pieces of scraps that are left over from jobs. Especially pipes, ideal for making port a wraps and whatever.

    Yeah, we are the same way here Justin. Clay snot in after a rain. Almost got it stuck off the road playing with it. But I locked the diff and backed her out. I kinda know my limits around here. Man has to know his limitations ;) Mini is my primary for tree work. But I need a loader for for forwarding fast down long drives and more log lifting capacity. Back up machine. Need a second machine for Rob's mill too. I would like to put either a grapple or like what Mick put on his for skidding logs as well with the 3pt. It has it's limitations, but it has a niche as well. Grading my driveways is huge, and work I can do for quick money with a scraper. Hydraulics are my plan B as I get older. My crane op bugs me from time to time to learn his machine. The jockeys around here that think it's a mobile floating block bothers me though.
