Hi again, just wanted to say how very pleased I am with my mill … I have cut some big timber with the unit some as large as 26 inches with great efficiency . Powerful is an understatement. I currently have milled around 10000 board ft and have plans on much much more . I am sending pictures along with this email … All this has been done with no mechanical issues at all. The word hobby mill is used, but my mill is a serious machine that will get any milling job done I set before it!
