Thanks Geezer and Jerry
Rick, I hope the paper bag idea will help you get back to the enginehouse soon.

I came up with this to paint the blades. Seemed to work OK but my hand was a little shaky.





and the result. The straight lines running through it came with the blade. This will be the side that doesn't show.





Now to try the other side.

G'day Roland.
Looking at the way you have mounted the saw blades, it appears to me that the teeth are set up in such a way that they rotate in opposite directions.
Is this intentional...? Will the belting reflect that, or am I confused?

Thanks
Greg

Good job Roland !! Blades are the way they should be with the teeth directing to the side the material comes in..

Thanks everyone. The blades are mounted the way Serria West shows them. They looked kind of odd to me to, but after a while it made sense. Either way I can't get them off now.

Hi Roland,
Nice bit of progress with the mill, and I really like the worn appearance of your blades. I believe your blades are correct, and they spin in opposite directions as your belts run. I've included an image from my brother-in-laws mill and his twin blade assembly. In that image, logs are fed from left to right. The teeth of the blades rip into the log, against the direction of log travel.



The set up is perhaps a bit different to how your home drop saw works (maybe where some people feel it looks wrong in this model), where the blade tends to cut the timber in from a different direction (ie starts above the timber and then cuts away from you). Hope that helps.
