    Actually I think someone already beat me to it, but can't remember if it was a GTG or charity cut for Interfaith Caregivers.

    Can't hear any crickets here. Just 3 EMD prime movers idling. (the new GE stuff sounds OK but nothing beats these old EMD GP/SD series)

    Rihm Kenworth also has moved from University Avenue as well. They are one of the oldest KW dealers in the country. They split into two new locations. I am guessing university AVE will see a major facelift in the next few years or become a ghost town.

    I have one saw that still runs and it's woods ported I think.If I could get up there would I have to run against a hot saw in the modified class?I am old now and my chain is not the sharpest.

    I am down 16 on 85 between 23&11.Are you going up to Harris on the 21st?I have been away from this site for about 6 years but still remember a few guys and gals.I was up helping Denny in Danbury a few times and miss it.I am semi-retarded now and have a little more time for things.I remember one GTG at JD'S In Grantsberg a few years back and about 50 people showed up that was a lot of fun.

    Well, you'll be competing with the likes of several of us who are in the same boat.

    Bump. Me (in the hi-viz green shirt) cutting wood in a rather different way at a small threashing show over the weekend.

    Most of the lumber, planks and timbers cut over the weekend and the slabwood in the background.

    Last time I saw a setup like this was at a county fair. Naturally, some guy brought in a bunch of walnut logs from residential property that was full of nails here and there. Sparks flew and the cutting blade was changed three times. I trust you ran into no nails here. Those big cutters cost and arm and a leg. Suddenly the "free" boards become expensive.

    Couple of years ago, we did hit a nail but the teeth then were wore out and in need of replacing and the nail didn't do much to the teeth. We sharpened the blade as best we could and made it through the weekend. That winter the owner had the blade hammered and new teeth and inserts put in. That was about 3-4 years ago, the new teeth do need to be resharpened now. But we haven't hit anything since.
