    Gene - saw your post on DIY tracksaw. http://www.woodworkingtalk.com/f27/n...20/#post183610
    Could you share how you make sure that the T at the bottom of the saw shoe is in perfect parallel with the blade? Any trick/jig that you use?

    I heard that Mesquite is hard on cutting tools thanks for the info.
    Here is the URL for the $4 per Bdft Mesquite in Tucson:
    There are a number of other ads on Craigslit/Tucson you might want to take a look at.
    Another Forum had this listing: A small sawmill in Tucson very reasonable price. Northeast corner of Ajo Way and S Alvernon Way. They cut mesquite to sell to local furniture makers. They allowed you to look through their offcuts for $1/linear foot (any thickness).

    Hope this is helpful, Nat!

    Thanks Gene, that is a great price from what I have been able to find on the internet. Most places I've seen on the internet in Arizona want around $6-$8 a board foot and even higher. I found one guy around Tucson through CraigList that has Mesquite as low as $4 but who knows what it looks like. Logs are just fine with me I can buck them down to shorter lengths and slab them with my chainsaw. Then resaw them on my bandsaw. This would give me an excuse to build the light duty sawmill that I have had on my mind for the last 10 years. Thanks Again!

    HI Gene, back in Feb 09 you posted that you had found an inexpensive source for Mesquite in Arizona. I will be moving to Phoenix, Arizona in a few months from the frosty cold Chicago area and am looking for a source of wood. Mesquite looks like a beautiful wood, would you be willing to share who your source of Mesquite is? If not don't feel bad I understand this is something you would like to keep under raps. Happy travels, Nat.

    Gee, I never get that lucky.
    The wife just reminded me that it was the Ochoa family that owned the restaurant. It was called"The Chuckwagon".
    I know Gibby's. Used to serve great food. Been to a couple wedding receptions and a Quinsenata (SP) there. Been known to bend a elbow in their bar, too.

    Small world eh? That wood on Tony's box is spalted lauan. It originated as part of some overseas packing crates several decades ago. I don't know Ochoa's but there's a B&B behind Gibby's bar on the corner of eighth and something, kitty corner from the Chamber of Commerce building. Gibby's is across the street from Murphy's drug store in the movie. I don't think the B&B does any business. If it does, I have no idea why.
