It has been some time since I posted anything. I haven’t done too much sawing lately just haven’t had access to many decent logs worth milling. I had someone call me and ask if I would cut up some red oak logs for them. I was kind of missing sawing logs so I packed up the saw and headed out!
The red oak logs were cut by a tree service due to oak wilt or so they thought that was the cause of the decline.
The logs were pretty big for my mill but she handled them great.
It took some doing but I was able to man handle them onto the saw.
The logs were nice for lumber logs wide boards that were pretty clear
I did manage to break my cant hook so I have ordered a Logrite cant hook and am looking forward to getting that. It takes some effort to roll this size log but it is possible.
It also makes a mess and creates a large amount of sawdust but that is all part of the process.
In the end we handled the logs and made some real nice red oak lumber with some clear boards in the 16”-19” wide range, really to big to work with but nice to look at.
All in All a nice way to spend a Sat!
