Smokin or Thistle, how often do you mill over nine feet in one run.

As often as I can! Just move your guide down the log about 3/4 of the way....Easy Peazy!
I never did ask when ordering the ez rails (9ft) do they come in three foot sections?
They should....I dont run into 10 footer that offen. It is very easy to just slide it down the log, heck I leave my 880 on the rail. I had a 12 foot set-up and hated it, so I drop it to an 8footer.
Smokin, do you just rub the Bees Wax on the ends right out of the can?
I just paint the cheaper woods. Black walnut I use the bee-wax on the top and bottom and paraffin wax on the ends.
So your framing wood or softwood just paint the ends, hardwoods you may want to go the extra mile for.
I have a good recipe for making an awesome bee-wax blend that works very well and much cheaper!
So on the pine I can leave the top and bottom alone then paint the ends(what type of paint?)
Use up what you have around the house first Anything....Yes leave the top and botton alone on the pine.
Smokin, looks like everything came in from what I can see, I might start putting it together tonight.
The ez rails (wet) are in the first picture (they had put them outside because I was coming and it started pouring just before I got there) then the second picture is the mill.
Yep yep...Grap a 1/2 wrench and lap-top set at kitchen table about 30 min's your done...Pretty cool video....
Smokin the white plastic piece is not in the package, how important is it.
LOL Funny stuff there I went through the same thing even called them out on it......Turns out its just comes on the SMALL MILL ONLY!! I email back and fourth as well, but it is not a part of your mill. Glad you caught that to! :lol: You are very educated on the mills for sure!
Bump......Pic's or it didnt happen! :coolhmm:
Smokin, how far down did you tighten down the handle from the guide end?
Just snug it up until you know what works for you....Mine is about a foot to the left. Could be different once you get going but always keep a 1/2 inch with you for adjustments. :cheese:
Smokin, if you notice something wrong just post it. Looking at the rails tomorrow night.
Smokin/Thistle, I see on Granbergs site they say you can lose between 2-4 inches on how wide you can cut, how much do you lose or will I lose with the 36 inch bar.
With the 36" Bar I can mill logs up to 32".
Thistle thanks, are you running the auxiliary oiler on your 36 inch bar?
