Greetings from TN.

Found this group last week when searching for a DIY dry kiln. I have been sawing with a Wood-Mizer mill full time since 1991. I look forward to reading and interacting as I find my way around here.

Welcome. We like pictures and the forestry and milling section has been a little dead lately anyway, so post away if you have any.

I would like it if I had a picture of me removing steps that have been nailed to a prime white oak tree while the deer hunter is up in his stand.

Thanks for the welcomes. I will see about posting a few pics. We have been into some really big logs lately.
A little about my mill.
I saw butt logs for a larger mill. They have a circle saw head rig and I am sawing with a Wood-Mizer LT40HDE25 . I have been sawing for them for about 15 years and average about 1.5 million bdf. a year. In years past I have had as many as three mills running at one time (big headache). I have been down to one mill for the last three years, which I like very much. I have three men plus myself that make up my crew. I run the lift and keep the mill supplied with logs and keep the lumber and slabs moved out.

Welcome Mizer, I didn't see you come through the door until now. Glad you did though you sound like our kind of guy. I echo Daren's request we'd love to see some pics. I haven't been getting to mill much lately either maybe 2 or 3 times a week. Have a lot of other stuff happening right now so maybe you can pull the sled for a while.

I have wanted to convert my mill to electric for a while. LT40HD Super Hydraulic 42hp Kuboata. I don't *mind* the diesel in fact it has gobs of power but IMO electric is the way to go. Did you start out with an electric or did you convert?

You can wait to answer these questions when you make your first post in the milling section . . . hint hint.

I posted a response over in the milling section. I guess I am in with both feet now.

Welcome! I messed up a pair of shorts in Tennessee back in 1995 riding up the hill on the trolly in Gatlinburg. I like Tennessee a lot. Food is good, scenery is nice, girls are pretty. I met up with Little Roy Wiggins in Pigeon Forge in 1993. He signed a whole mess of his tapes for me. I still have them in a safe place.

Dollywood has a lot of the craftsmen who used to be at Silver Dollar City. I got double back lost in Nashville between the river and the cemetery, and I had the biggest mess of grits on one plate I ever saw in my life in Memphis. I got on the Natchez Trace at Franklin and rode that all the way to Natchez.
