Location: Missoula, Mt. 59808
Retired with a small workshop in my half of the garage with a small 14 amp,
10 5/8" impeller dust collector that exhausts to the outside. Table saw,
one small bandsaw, one that can resaw 12" wood, lathe, Horizontal and
vertical drill press, 13" planer, 4" jointer and assorted small tools. Have been
making sawdust for 58 years and counting. Pine beetle has given me a
lot of trees I can use, that is the main reason for the big bandsaw/small
sawmill, the beetles give the pine a blueish tint. If you get the trees the
first year before they weaken and make cants for drying out of them the wood does not lose too much strength and is good for projects. I still prefer
hardwood for the fancy stuff.
