Looks good! You're gonna have to shovel some sawdust pretty soon, though.

Yes I do. more to sawing then just sawing logs. I noticed after I sharpened the blade the blade was slowing down because the belt was slipping from the blade being so sharp. Now I need to get a new belt. Also that was a 22'' poplar log that I was cutting.

nizzzz!!! Just a suggestion.If you had put that crack in the log parallel to the bed, it would have been gone in a board or two instead of half of them,,,

Here's a longer video of me cutting with the same blade that I sharpened a few days ago cutting another log. This is how it's cutting after about a 1000 board feet of 1'' lumber.

Howdy Rod, Curious... do you use a file or dremmel, or something else? I'm having problems with my Norwood hardwood blades dulling and walking downward after a few cuts through my red, white, and post oak logs, here in the Missouri Ozarks. I'm fixin' to set up their blade sharpener (comes with a dremmel) and tooth setter. I like your mill by the way. I think you made that one your self didn't you?

i've been using diamond honing stones. sounds like maybe your blade needs more tension.

Well I would never talk down about getting things done on your own,,, my hat is off to you!!!
But,, if your putting a 1000 brdf on a single sharpening, my bet is your actually killing the life of your blade in the long run. Right from the start there are micro cracks in the gullets that form from the stresses of pulling that tooth thru the wood. The more you cut the bigger they get and the duller your blade gets the more it pulls and opens the cracks. If your not taking time to grind the full profile and hitting the gullet, you are not getting rid of those cracks. Your blade will break well ahead of it's normal time doing that. It's much better to take a blade off the mill after 5 to 8 hundred brdft (totally dependent on what species wood, how clean etc etc) when it's just STARTING to get dull and then it only takes a light grind (hitting the full profile of the tooth) to get it sharp and the cracks cleaned up. Do you keep track of how many total brdft you get out of a blade you have maintained this way???

And as far as the other poster having the blade dive on him that is usually a sign of a roller out of whack on my mill. But you can have it happen if your set is off or one side is sharper than the other or you did'nt take the burr off the blade after sharpening it. Just my 2 cents worth

    FORUM GUIDELINES: Please review the guidelines below before posting at WOODWEB's Interactive Message Boards (return to top)

  • WOODWEB is a professional industrial woodworking site. Hobbyist and homeowner woodworking questions are inappropriate.
  • Messages should be kept reasonably short and on topic, relating to the focus of the forum. Responses should relate to the original question.
  • A valid email return address must be included with each message.
  • Advertising is inappropriate. The only exceptions are the Classified Ads Exchange, Machinery Exchange, Lumber Exchange, and Job Opportunities and Services Exchange. When posting listings in these areas, review the posting instructions carefully.
  • Subject lines may be edited for length and clarity.
  • "Cross posting" is not permitted. Choose the best forum for your question, and post your question at one forum only.
  • Messages requesting private responses will be removed - Forums are designed to provide information and assistance for all of our visitors. Private response requests are appropriate at WOODWEB's Exchanges and Job Opportunities and Services.
  • Messages that accuse businesses or individuals of alleged negative actions or behavior are inappropriate since WOODWEB is unable to verify or substantiate the claims.
  • Posts with the intent of soliciting answers to surveys are not appropriate. Contact WOODWEB for more information on initiating a survey.
  • Excessive forum participation by an individual upsets the balance of a healthy forum atmosphere. Individuals who excessively post responses containing marginal content will be considered repeat forum abusers.
  • Responses that initiate or support inappropriate and off-topic discussion of general politics detract from the professional woodworking focus of WOODWEB, and will be removed.
  • Participants are encouraged to use their real name when posting. Intentionally using another persons name is prohibited, and posts of this nature will be removed at WOODWEB's discretion.
  • Comments, questions, or criticisms regarding Forum policies should be directed to WOODWEB's Systems Administrator

    WOODWEB's forums are a highly regarded resource for professional woodworkers. Messages and responses that are crafted in a professional and civil manner strengthen this resource. Messages that do not reflect a professional tone reduce the value of our forums.

    Messages are inappropriate when their content: is deemed libelous in nature or is based on rumor, fails to meet basic standards of decorum, contains blatant advertising or inappropriate emphasis on self promotion (return to top).

    Libel:   Posts which defame an individual or organization, or employ a tone which can be viewed as malicious in nature. Words, pictures, or cartoons which expose a person or organization to public hatred, shame, disgrace, or ridicule, or induce an ill opinion of a person or organization, are libelous.

    Improper Decorum:   Posts which are profane, inciting, disrespectful or uncivil in tone, or maliciously worded. This also includes the venting of unsubstantiated opinions. Such messages do little to illuminate a given topic, and often have the opposite effect. Constructive criticism is acceptable (return to top).

    Advertising:   The purpose of WOODWEB Forums is to provide answers, not an advertising venue. Companies participating in a Forum discussion should provide specific answers to posted questions. WOODWEB suggests that businesses include an appropriately crafted signature in order to identify their company. A well meaning post that seems to be on-topic but contains a product reference may do your business more harm than good in the Forum environment. Forum users may perceive your references to specific products as unsolicited advertising (spam) and consciously avoid your web site or services. A well-crafted signature is an appropriate way to advertise your services that will not offend potential customers. Signatures should be limited to 4-6 lines, and may contain information that identifies the type of business you're in, your URL and email address (return to top).

    Repeated Forum Abuse: Forum participants who repeatedly fail to follow WOODWEB's Forum Guidelines may encounter difficulty when attempting to post messages.

    There are often situations when the original message asks for opinions: "What is the best widget for my type of shop?". To a certain extent, the person posting the message is responsible for including specific questions within the message. An open ended question (like the one above) invites responses that may read as sales pitches. WOODWEB suggests that companies responding to such a question provide detailed and substantive replies rather than responses that read as a one-sided product promotion. It has been WOODWEB's experience that substantive responses are held in higher regard by our readers (return to top).

    The staff of WOODWEB assume no responsibility for the accuracy, content, or outcome of any posting transmitted at WOODWEB's Message Boards. Participants should undertake the use of machinery, materials and methods discussed at WOODWEB's Message Boards after considerate evaluation, and at their own risk.
