    Today's milling

    I would have three or four logs out ready take off the first cut from them all in one go set the mill to 2'' and just keep cutting amazing how much you can mill like this. No tea breaks or lunch hour quick slurp and a bite when sharpening and a saw refuel. It helped keeping most @ 2'' thick so not wasting to much time adjusting the mill as still have the older style Alaskan. Running the 660 with the 36'' low pro setup. Not all days are like it and when it's not i do say to myself why.

    Just pleased that i re fitted the winch kit the night before. Just a quick tickle with the file from time to time. A few choc bars and fizzy drinks works fine for this 52 year old boy.

    Been flat out over the last three days milling Oak up to 16 ft long and 28'' wide max x 2'' t for a client. There are some more boards and some mantles the other side of the stack. All done with the Alaskan. One very very happy customer.

    I have the older model and love it. I would like the 3 phase electric one to use on mine one day. Enjoy.

    Saw milling directory

    I might be in if it works out better than the directory I'm on that seems to have a lot of old adverts and won't let me update it. I like the idea of us passing on each others details say if I'm to busy or the jobs to far etc.

    Logosol f2

    I've been using the farmers mill f1 for almost a year fab bit of kit. Running ms660 with a 20'' low pro setup. I had a deal on an ex demo one and brought the log steps saw carridge extra log clamp. I also would love a bandsaw mill but don't have the storage space and this system suits my needs for now. Also run three Alaskan mills for the bigger slabs.
