    New tool!

    Bought a new tool, hoping to get some usable lumber from logs, HOPEFULLY!

    I also ordered a rip-chain but it's not here yet.
    Of course I'm sure...that doesn't mean I'm right.....

    Amazon, it should be here today. There are a lot of 3/8 available, not so many .325 which is what I use. They say you can use a standard chain but it is slower and not as smooth a cut, I know I am not going to get a finished cut but I do have a thickness planer
    Of course I'm sure...that doesn't mean I'm right.....

    so, since I have "multiple" 18 inch chainsaws, I decided that one will be dedicated for mill use, the oldest (purchased brand new in 1982). I was concerned since it hasn't been run in 2 years. I pulled it down opened the case, fueled it up, nothing...I pulled the air cleaner off, poured some fuel down the throat of the carb, pulled the cord and she just roared to life. Set it down and it idled for a couple of minutes, I revved it and shut her down. Perfect! NEVER underesimate the importance of GOOD tools!
    Of course I'm sure...that doesn't mean I'm right.....

    I have the Dewalt DW735.. works great for boards up to 12 inches (claims 13, but that is the max width and the boards can bind against the side and not track right).

    Just have a planer is not going to help though, you need a jointer as well, joint edge, joint one flat face, then feed through planer flat edge down. Planers won't completely flatten a board, and is not actually meant to, it's more to get it to the correct thickness, but any bumps or uneven surfaces against the bottom plate of the planer will show up on the planed surface.

    I have a jointer, 2 routers and a good table, a 10 in table saw (monster, 3 horse belt drive, as accurate as you choose to be) I have run thousands of board feet of maple and cherry through my planer. We have built 7 sets of hardwood stairs, (all mortised stringers, all from rough sawn lumber) My circular saw and 8 foot alloy straight edge will give me straight edges if need be (heavy duty comercial model).

    My biggest problem will be waiting patiently for it to air dry! A planer does a reasonable job of flattening hardwood if you don't crank the head down too tight and keep flipping it. like I say.... literally thousands of board feet of hardwood.
    Of course I'm sure...that doesn't mean I'm right.....

    2 inch, live edge, salted red maple. Thing works as it is supposed to! However, I will not be using the oldest saw, I need more power, and I have two others that have it

    Btw, your garage is as bad/good as mine, lol. Although, it is winter so the vehicles have to fit in.

    My cars park outside heh.. DC area, not exactly warm, but so far no snow. MY TS is pretty damn accurate as well, originally had the Delta Beisemeyer (spelling?) fence, but recently replaced it with the INCRA TS rails. I had the Incra LS positioner for my router table, but I am moving that to the table saw with the new rails (bought in Dec), and need to rebuild the wing with my router lift because the new rails have a different mounting setup. I have a 6" jointer, although I need new blades, a few are chipped from when I ran 2x4s across it.. cheap wood is well.. cheap wood and crappy.

    You appear to be very well versed in the art of making saw dust.. you can straighten boards in a planer, it's just not as easy sometimes. My current project is a random table with powder coated wire legs (my wife wanted it.. although the legs she got on etsy..oh wait.. we are still waiting for them.... ******* sellers...). Next project pairs up my nerdiness and the need for a drum sander.. arduino/raspberry pi controlled drum sander with a touch screen.. and if all goes well, auto belt tracking and leveling using nema 24 steppers, right now I am just trying to source a cheap 1.5hp motor.. harder than you would think, I don't want to buy an entire cheap tool and part it because I am lazy.. but it looks like that might be the way.

    Slabbed out the burl, 1 inch thick slices, I did not use the rip chain, since most of it was cross cutting, and in the burl, which way IS the grain going?

    None of the above. Think big. I see images of Elvis in most of those burls! If you look at them long enough you’ll see him.

    Send to me

    Although they are kinda small.. did you not try to quarter saw it to get some larger slabs with a live edge on one side? I'm been looking for some around 4+ feet long, about 2ish feet wide and 2" + thick.. and holy crap are they expensive.. $1k+ for decent slabs with good burl and no knots with a live edge.

    We have a pair of these "industrial" tables screaming for new spalted maple burl tops. Considering cutting them across (book matched pairs), gluing them together for the tops. For now, it's a waiting game till they are dry, it could take a year. They are upstairs in the garage stacked with 3/4 inch spacers. For the next couple of months, they will be freeze drying!
