Bill, That is one nice log stop well done. Roland, The ball is now in your court. The idea will work but if and when you set it up Its tight between the roller wheel and the existing stop if that is where you want the wooden one. under 3 inches on mine. Have fun. Tomorrow night I'll show another minor improvement I made. Got to take a picture first.

Bill this is scary. You and I are actually the sane ones:-) BTW Bill the Post looks great I may do something like that to use as an initial log stop.

Ok Here is something I feel is sensible. I cut short pieces of 1/4 pipe and put them on the handles to tighten the log stops. I put some weld on the end so the pipe won't come off.Makes for a more comfortable handle to turn.

That is nice Jack. I'm thinking that way also. I can't quite figure why the factory hasn't address this and the ceramic guides. I guess that nothing is ever perfect and cost is everything when trying to be competitive in a crowded marketplace. Maybe they will offer these as an option someday. It's not like their designs don't work well.....just a little short in a couple areas.

as long as I'm adding pictures here is one of the trailer I built and yes I still have to paint it but want to remove the mill frame so I can do a good cleanup first.

Bill I really like the way you did the toe board setup with the outboard motor hydraulics so simple might be next

Just a hobby Baron. The first thing I did in 2013 was mill out and build the sawmill shed. i love building my own stuff. The norwwood mills tho are so perfect and simple I wouldn't try to build one but making improvements or additions I will do
