« Part 3: nearing the end of the tunnel Part 4 of The Sawmill series Part 5: silence is broken »

We finally gave up tonight. So close we could taste it, but not enough daylight to finish and fire it up. So much tedious little stuff to make sure everything is lined up properly. Optimistic though, ordered a bunch of blades today.

You’re practicing the three P’s Patience, Persistence and Precision. Better to start fresh in the beginning of the day. Then you can post a video?

All good things come to those who wait. I know you must be “busting” with excitement to get this saw fired up. Good luck and be safe.

Please tell us that you have at least one blade to try that saw out with, or the tension-pun intended- will be unbearable. All the patience and care will be rewarded. Thank you for sharing.
