Have built, owned, operated..........RUNAWAY NOW !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Worse than a boat !!!!!

Get the level right....good sharp saw (hammered correctly)....perfect feed rate....everything just
exactly right.........first log..........NAIL...or RAIL/SPIKE....(ESPECIALLY FROM "FRONT/BACK YARD TREES"..

......OOPS.......START ALL OVER AGAIN......35 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE from producing 5,000' per day
to 50,000' per day.........I would rather have two run down boats/motors....visit my proctologist twice weekly and ride around once a week for 2 hours with my ex wife than have another sawmill !!!
Thanks Clark. After talking to a few folks and hearing your thoughts, I think I will pass.
My wife retires in June and I'm looking for something to do that gets me out of the house 3 or 4 days a week.
