How to prepare for Sawing Day

How do I get ready to saw my logs? Things to take into consideration:


- Cut logs to appropriate length, always add 6"+ to what you want finished. (8'6" for 8')

- Best to end-coat your logs to help with cracking. AnchorSeal works great or even outdoor  paint seems to work also (as in pic)

- Clean logs are less likely to cause blade damage

- Remove mud, gravel, branches, or anything else that will get in the way

- Logs need to be lined up in a row and ready to saw

- Logs need to be on level ground with plenty of room to setup and run sawmill

- More help the better. Atleast one person helping will be expected to keep the sawmill running
