Started on a Wych elm marathon today, 10’x2’++ in to 60mm slabs with the 60” panther mill and the stihl 881.

I was looking at adding roller wheels to my panther mill. 


I was going t use cheap skateboard wheels on an extra long M8( I think) slotted in the rail. 
Might need to bush out the bolt... to be seen as I've not done it yet.

Yeah, I'm sure it could be done a few ways but I've no experience of what the difference might be like.

 

If it was something you wanted to try a couple of inches of rail protruding backwards towards the saw would be ideal to mount a 1 off roller alternative, I'd imagine the more the diameter of the wheels the bigger the advantage.

 

But on the other hand I don't see why you couldn't just modify the existing skid by welding on a bush to accept an 8mm bolt giving you a simple bolt on alternative when you feel you need it and at the same time you could / would beef up the Panther skid which looks a bit puny compared to the Alaskan, cheers 👍

You’re right, they’re a bit wash boardy…🤣
Lost a few teeth on the chain, can’t find another one…shhhh no one will notice…

I once explained to a man that it gave more surface area to the board and helped it dry faster. 

The reality was that it was the second last bit on a fairly gritty ex roadside ash and I wasn't arsed sharpening the chain again.

Not saying he believed me, but he bought the board!

Gorgeous! The wood as well. 

 

@Rough Hewn    how long is it taking to go through that with the 881 any idea per board? Just wonder how much faster it is with that size saw. I appreciate there are all sorts of variables but it would be interesting to know the average time it takes to cut a board in that length.

About 6 minutes with a sharp chain I’m guessing?
It takes much longer to load it into the van.
I timed a cut once, it was solid oak 12’x3.5’.
Took 11 minutes with an 880 48” duromatic and chilaskan.
Today we did 9-10 cuts in 3 hours including set up and loading in to the van.
No breaks.
One nail, one sharpen.
And that’s 3 of us going at it.

6 minutes. That's going some. 9-10 cuts in 3 hours. That is also impressive. Good to know. :thumbup:
