Wow, never seen one without a carriage, does it ride on the bark for the first cut?

On Amazon

I put a ladder on top of the log, leveled and screwed to get a nice first cut. The first cut being smooth gives you a surface for the rest. I'm pretty chuffed actually. This is the smallest log of the dozen or so that I have. It's all ash so I may drop a maple and a cherry.

I knew you weren't just another pretty face. :thumb:
That rig is noisier, and wastes a little more wood, but a hell of a lot cheaper and more portable than the bandsaw type. Easier to move it to the trees than all the trees to the mill.
I wonder how often the chain will have to be sharpened?

When I was using it all day every day, I sharpened mine once a month. Sometimes twice.

Stihl might just be the best saws.
Used my 25 year old quite a bit yesterday clearing some windfalls. Pleased with it as usual.
Gravdigr must use some super chains.

Gravdigr 11-11-2019 12:44 PM

Stihl chains.

And a pro sharpener.

I wasn't bad with a file either.

Were you using ripper chains, I wondered how they held up compared to normal chains?

Griff 11-11-2019 04:14 PM

This was day one with the mill and day one with the ripper chain. I didn't notice any change in the way it cut between first and last cut. I noticed the Stihl chain I was using previously really stayed sharp a long time.

This guy is a little preachy but the wood is gorgeous...

Money money money? Ha, that's rich.(Try the veal)
You'll think of something you want to build, or donate them to a needy relative or friend's project, and get sucked into helping too. :haha:
