    Well done Jed. Looks like you could have gone three there. Harder to clean up though I gather.?

    It's a she, and she cleans them after and during every feeding. She was just pregnant when we had her fixed, so all the mom hormones were instilled. She also does this with the kittens, even so much as to move them outside to where she wants them The squirrels will nose right down face to face with her tongue cleaning them out of the cage. Fun stuff. We still feed them, but they are in the process of weaning currently... She even guards them from the cats that are our hunters. Laying in front of the cage growling at them....

    Been considering on of those augers for our dingosaurus. Seems it would be a good asset for making stuff smaller that ain't worth milling. Or cedar split rail.

    Yeah, glad I don't get many of those these days. Loose rocks can ruin your day. I do have a smallish pine coning up on the edge if a cut, over a house I am going to need to self lower to the guys at the bottom. Should make for some fun :/:

    I would so dig sitting with a cup of coffee watching that out my window Until livestock were being threatened. We have a family of cats across the street in the vineyard. Never see them much.

    I think big double dogs help too. Gives you a proper axis for gunning.

    There's the magic...some few of us need no time, care, nor constancy to find level. And unlike Stephen, I cannot place any ability to "see" level on work experience. I was born with it, and it has been both a gift and bane from my first awareness. Some years back, Stig in a pm to me posited that, given the relatively (to him, and agreed by me completely) low number of fells that my work has set before me, that I must have an unusual level of native talent...seeing as I seem to be able to accomplish advanced cuts without thousands of fells to earn the skills. Stig, if my memory differs from yours, please say so. In any event, I think being able to perceive level (simple), and to be able to visualize where the tip of 36, 42, or 60 inches of bar is and what it is doing deep inside a tree that well exceeds those dimensions (much harder), is a talent that cannot be easily learned. I'm sure it can be, but how??...Not so sure. It's a three dimensional puzzle at it's most simplistic description. It is, as I said before, a gift. I cannot say I am better at it than most because I worked for it...just supremely lucky to have been born with the magic insight.

    Burnham replied to a thread milling thread in Chainsaws!
    If it was me, given some of y'all are all about the potential to not waste the wood that comes your way, optimize a saleable product, maybe make beautiful planks, I'd seriously think about this mill. https://woodmizer.com/Store/Shop/Portable-Sawmills/LT15start-Portable-Sawmill?keyword=&creative=266117510294&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIm_r7hYaO5AIViMpkCh1hcQOzEAQYAyABEgKcJ_D_BwE My cousin-in-law has one...and oh goodness, he has cut some magnificent boards with it. I have a couple of times helped him with cutting, bucking, rigging, and man-handling logs onto the mill bed, some pretty nice sized ponderosa pine. The results have been awfully fine. I know...the up front cost is steep, and it doesn't move about easily. But it is a mighty fine mill.

    Like Burnam, I get weird about stuff being off level. My years in construction did that to me. Level and plumb. Every once in a while, my back cut will go high low to apex, but mostly when tired. Just ain't holding my mouth right for the weariness. Just keep practicing and correcting. More experience equals better cutting.

    I still don't get all this noise about how to level a saw bar. I am sorry. But forever in all aspects of my life, for me, my eye is a dead on laser accurate level. Does not matter the setting, be it 120 percent sidehill or in my living room. I am quite unsettled by a picture frame off level by a degree or two. When I check into a hotel room, I have to go to each lampshade that is off and correct it's position to level before I can begin to relax. I have had to reset a starting cut after backing away to check my initial setting from time to time, but seeing what is level from a step back has never been a problem. I cannot grasp lacking this ability.

    So Frans...you're just going to lay down and let that thief steal your $120 and your Dewalt? When you know where he lives?? This, I do not understand.
