Always a pleasure to see your work. I am glad you are back. Also happy that Mario, our resident librarian, is cataloguing your work for easy reference!

Roland the gear work on the live rollers is very well done. Are they NWSL castings?

The whole unit is a pleasure to see.

Arthur, Tom, Thanks for the comments. The castings are all from Serria West. You supply all the wood and wires.

Arthur, I was very honored that Mario included me on his website.

When you have it all finished, I need about 50,000 board feet of lumber cut for my new pier. Are your prices reasonable?

Your usual nice work, Roland. While I'm generally painting my wood a rather fresh gray, I like your choice of warmer colors (seems to fit what I remember of pictures I've seen of sawmills interiors too).

Thanks Frederic. I have been using Minwax Golden Oak stain for the sawmill. I guess it is an oil based stain because my usual Elmers glue doesn't hold very well. I have had to switch to super glue gel for this project.

Hi. Had a little time this morning so I was able to finish the cutoff saw. The metal finish is blacken-it per SW instructions. The belt is cut from a paper bag with a little chalk added.
I decided to build a frame, like I saw on another site, rather have the saw attached to the roof beams, in case I want to make the roof removable.

Roland....love the mill equipment being built. I built a similar mill from the old CHB parts and made the mistake of hanging the cutoff saw from the roof rafters! I like your solution a lot better.
