  1. You should cook him some corn on the cob and see what he does.
  2. The keyed deadbolt is on the inside only. Just leave it unlocked until you're ready to leave. This door can't be your main access. If this door is the only one to the shop then this won't work. There's no deadbolt access from the outside. These types of doors with large windows in them are really for deck or patio access which is why this keyed deadbolt option is available.
  3. One thing to consider since security seems to be a priority here: if you go with a window in an exterior door think about getting a keyed deadbolt instead of a latched one. If someone did break through the window and got their hand inside they couldn't turn the deadbolt. Of course if the window is big enough to climb through it's a moot point.
  4. Yea that's what I was hoping for when I got it. I'm on year 5 or 6. The technology is new. I don't recall Oregon being around then but I was reviews driven.
  5. Me thinks it's too early to invest in those battery powered lawnmowers but when my Honda dies I shall give them a try.
  6. Joe, I'd say she seems to like your wood.
  7. Pretty cool! All that's left now is maybe drawing up some plans so others can make their own.
  8. Even ply that thick will sag without adequate support. Plus it's expensive. In my opinion overhead storage racks look better and it's easy to find and get to your stuff.
  9. I'd cover the roof sheathing rafters and expose everything underneath.
  10. I saw that one, those guys are good, a little bit out of my league!
  11. Bmac, is that all from your property? First, thank you for mentioning the canned gas. I wasn't aware this was a thing and I'm going to try it immediately. HUGE time saver if it works! Your thinking was my thinking as well: quarter a 16" (diameter) log in the field with a chainsaw mill, bring it to the shop to joint an edge, and mill it on the bandsaw. Bandsaw abuse
  12. I like the electric option. It would take a little longer and more equipment but it's feasible to bring logs to the mill.
  13. Yea Woodmizer's smallest portable mill should suffice. It would accommodate more than I could ever handle. The only thing I worry about is maintaining the motor when not in use. I wouldn't mill wood all the time and if it's anything like my lawnmower it would require service when I need it most. Gas is so bad in Missouri that if I go more than 10 days, it won't start. Even with stabilizer. It's not cost effective and you don't see anyone doing it. We're still milling little logs on our bandsaws. Your Norwood mill is probably the best bet for cost/quality/maintenance. But... by the
  14. Aren't these slabbing units though? I'd like to see someone use it to get different grain patterns where it would be more useful. I'd like to see someone turn a log a few times on one of these after making a pass.
  15. I couldn't find any warranty information on the website. Also for anyone interested make sure you read the 30-day return policy.
