Rack setup

Recommended Posts

some of you commented on my maccy boards and spotted the evolution of the palllet racking setup.

As promised today saw a different setup as the logs have been slightly smaller!

Some lovely cats paw Oak fresh felled this morning from a woodland as it had been standing dead for a few years.

Very pleased with the rig, no real headaches that I've come across apart from the time frame of setup, I guess I don't mind as I am just poking about. Board quality still Impressive though. Only negative is the change of height after every cut. Perhaps the old Stihl mills with the windy handle would be more beneficial, perhaps I did see though out of stock a quick release option for clamps.

First day overal I am pleased 😀

why not do the first cut with the rack but then remove it to cut the boards the normal way???

For me, with such a small 1" wide front and rear rail there is always a problem getting the back rail level with the front. As much as ive tried for what ever reason with a big saw and bar never really get good boards.

This, whilst slower is spot on.

Its brilliant. On of those 'why did I not think of that' moments- :D 

 

Its kinda like a cross between a Lucas Mill and a Logosol M8. And much less back breaking than regular Alaskan Milling heights. I expect to see copies of this idea soon. Maybe even light weight aluminium versions.

The rigidity is very important to keeping things square and level, and I dont think aluminium would be the way forward.

Maybe not. But maybe Aluminium components to reduce weight?
