My saw has a lot of age on it and I was thinking I might need a new one soon. But I got that rascal out and it ran like a champ today. I was cutting up some of the limbs I had cut off a tree a while back. I cut up about half a wagon load of firewood today. I also ran the bush hog in the field where the mother in laws house will be put. I have got frustrated lately trying to figure out what to do so I took the day off. As far as sharpening chins I think I actually make them duller at times. I have been thinking of getting one of the small motorized chain sharpeners.

I. I would like to have a alaskian sawmlll to do one from time to time but I still would prefer to get a bandsaw over with these logs due to the time factor now. What I probably do is to get all the logs cut and ready to be sawed then take pictures of them. I will post them and let the fellows I have contacted online give me a new estimate. I am hoping to have about 1000 to 1200 board feet of oak and cedar. If I can get that cut for no more than 800 I would be happy. Kiln dried boards one quoted to me today was about 1.25 a board foot now in my area.

I plan on cleaning up some more cedar branches I have cut down in the way tomorrow and I need to do some work on my porch to be ready for it to be painted. I am going to take a few days off but I plan to cut some more next Friday. If I get all the stuff done tomorrow quickly I may cut down a couple or so. But work never seems to go quickly.
