    CurSedVoyce replied to a thread milling thread in Chainsaws!
    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.

    Hope your stamina gets back to normal...but seems if you're able to keep up the felling schedule, you must be doing right well.

    Yeah, I'd been wondering if you have been unwell. Well, more unwell than you actually have been. How's that going these days? ;)

    I seem to recall a fair number of red alder, some bigleaf maple, some bitter cherry, some cottonwood. None of which are HARD hardwoods, just as you say. A few Oregon ash, one small Garry oak...harder hardwood there :). But you are right, most of my experience is western conifers, an inch wide and a mile deep.

    I located it. It was in the venerable "High Back Cut, Burnham Style" thread. That thread was one of the more interesting ones ever and worth a full read if you have the time. It and ran on and on, bumped and heading off again. Anyway, post 183 or so, here you go if you're interested. http://masterblasterhome.com/showthread.php?12972-High-back-cut-Burnham-style&p=436981&viewfull=1#post436981

    I'm more with Reg on setting wedges and how much...but for sure it is not going to be the same with every tree. Back leaners wedge over much easier if you don't allow them to set back any at all, and that takes keeping wedges tight all through the back cut. Somewhere here in a thread we talked about how much backlean can be overcome. We covered some pretty extreme methods. I'll see if I can find it.

    I agree, I was harsh. Sorry about that. I actually read your post as quite trollish. I reckon now I might have been wrong. But that doesn't change the facts.

    Storrick's site is a great resource, for sure. Has been for old school SRT and rappellers for a couple of decades. He's a caver.

    Dismount from the Swiss bicycles and transfer onto the limbs...climb them free, for the most part. The way it was done back in the day...even in my day :).

    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.
