Suggestion : Other Norwood Portable Sawmill Owners Close By?

Are there other Norwood Portable Sawmill owners in your area? Wouldn't it be great if there was a list or map of other sawmill owners willing to put up a demonstration or give advice on assembly, maintenance, milling etc.

Stephan, Norwood has a program for those that want to demonstrate their mills. They vet the people for you so that they are legit. Works well. I had one come by last Friday. Maybe he will buy a mill. Dan

Riverrock, that's a pretty good idea. I think I'll borrow it and start a thread where any Norwood owner can list their location and any other info about their mill. The implication, of course, is that they are open to visits.

Ya I asked Norwood if they could recommend someone locally with the same machine as me and sharpening gear to get me started in the right direction with sharpening and they told me they couldn't give me that info. and to buy there sharpening gear. :(

The trick is to just skim a little off at a time. I'm also experimenting with narrower sets (around .015") for hardwoods. Lots of variables to play with when sharpening sawmill blades!

I'll have to do a Youtube video. It is pretty straightforward, and the resharpened blades actually seem to stay sharp longer than the new ones out of the box.

I only have three blades to resharpen at the moment. One is cobolitzed, teeth out of set. and a box of new ones to use. that's why I didn't wanna buy the sharpening gear right now. I don't have the space for the gear in my home and shop or the cash flow at the moment to buy that gear. Ya the new blades don't stay sharp for very long.

I'm trying to find other Norwood portable sawmill owners in my area. I bought a used LumberMate Pro MX34 from someone who got it from a friend and never used it. I'm looking forward to cutting some of my oak trees into lumber for a couple of projects. I've sawed about 200 board feet so far, mostly 2x4's and 2x6s. I haven't had any major problems but would like to talk with some other owners to get tips on getting the best cut. I would like to buy essay online as my friends do when they need to complete their assignments. I also have an old Skil circular saw that I've been using as an edger, but plan on getting the edger attachment sometime soon. If you are a Norwood sawyer in the North Central Ohio area, let me know! Thanks!
