    Had some small pine logs that where in the log pile for about a year. Wanted to get them cut up before they rotted up. Just made some 2"x4"x 8'-10'. It made 2 decent trailer loads of slabs.

    Sawed some more of the small logs today. 2x4 and 2x6. Used blades that I sharpened on my new woodmizer sharpener/ Setter Combo. Well pleased with the results.

    Looks good nice that you can do your own blades I have not got into the sharpening yet I still send the blades to re-sharp here in Pa I just do not have time between the saw shop and regular job and sawing I need 28 hour days I do know they recommend you clean blades well before you sharpen them I see you saw a lot of softwood do you have any issues with cleaning the sap off blades ? also do you only use one blade profile I switch between 7 degree for softwoods and 10 degree bi-metal for locust and other hardwoods

    I do saw alot of pine. We have had alot of wind storms over the last year and a half. Blow overs, tops broken out. Just cleaning up the mess. I also help our elderly neighbors with tree clean up. Win win situation. I use dish soap and simple green in the water and use a plenty of it, also at the end of the day run it with the water opened up and flood with water.

    I only have 10⁰/30⁰ blades. I only have the 10⁰ CBN wheel. You would have to get a 7⁰ wheel also.

    I spend a little time prepping the blade before sharpening, brass wire brush and look for damaged teeth.
    Marty and his family are nice to deal with @ Shade Gap.

    Any Questions please message and I will try to help. Still learning

    Yes Marty has been to my mill before to help with some problems I had early on usually I do not have to look to close for bad teeth I saw mostly locust and when I find metal that the detector does not pick up it usually ruins the blade I did hit concrete in a log the blade did not like that one bit :picard:it removed a bunch of teeth most of my sawing is with the 10 degree Bi-Metal blades 11/2 wide they really last sawing the locust I am not buying a sharpener anytime soon I just bought a riehl steel edger I hope to get pictures of it this weekend JB
