    I think for $54.00 dollars you can get the aux. oiler and attach it plus drill two holes and your off and running. I might get the mini mill plus the aux. oiler only because we have some big pine.

    Just found this you old dog.

    I used a wire tie and just let it drip on to the bar it finds its way to the chain with no CLOGGING!

    You can clearly see the hose and zip tie...This keeps you from drilling or clogging!

    I almost drilled and came to my senses thats alot of money and reviews say they clogs up anyway..... :cheese: That oil finds it way to the chain it has nowhere else to go.

    Any bottle and tube with an adjuster and couple zip ties and your done.

    I won't drill, just debating if it would be worth getting another 5 or 9 foot section of ez rails for some longer cuts.

    I really dont think so, I ran a 12 footer just to hard to handle at that length....8 foot for me is perfect slides easy for one person and its only for one cut. Take your time with the first cut then everything goes pretty smooth and fast. Most tree you will need to make slight adjustments on to and 12 is a lot harder.

    Mini mill set-up. Small kerf chain and bar that 310 could be a strong one to have in the mix.

    I take it you don't use a ripping chain when using the mini mill.

    I just cut my own, my little 192t does a good job and loses very little kerf. Bet a 310 with an .043 set-up would kick @ass! Even a .325 would work as well....

    Dont know about Carlton. My ripping chains are Oregon 75JGX 0.63 gauge skip.Ground to 10 or 15 degrees. I imagine the specs would be the same though.

    I think if I'm reading the chart (just found it) it's 10 percent.

    Question on the ez rails, I'm using the nine footers so should I leave overhang at both ends or just one end when milling. This will determine the length of the log.
