    also I'll use a hole saw cutting bit to cut each corner, then clean all the sharp edges with a drum sander on an air driven die grinder, makes for a neat radius. If you cut all the radius corners first then all you have to cut are the straight edges. I usually tape the surfaces to be cut out, then measure and mark the cuts on the tape. This serves to somewhat protect the paint.

    An air driven angle die grinder with a 3" diameter 1/6th" thick disk works very well for this purpose. We use them for aircraft repairs and mods all the time. I use the 4 1/2" hand held grinder with a thin disk as well for thick metal cutting.

  • Prefect example would be an atomic blast. Causing an implosion around all surfaces of the plutonium, small blast in and an unbelievable amount of energy out. NASA = never a straight answer. The energy is there, just need to unleash it. Not wanting to step on toes here, just saying their are answers that are being hidden from the main populous and only a few reaping the benefits, its man dominating man to his injury. This is really not the place to discuss a topic of this magnitude anyway.

    All of you who have doubts that hydrogen can be used as fuel should research Stan Meyer. Also answer for yourselves why the auto manufacturers have been casting cylinder heads with deep holes in them for the spark plugs, then you will begin to understand what's happening in the world we live. It's all about money.

    The answer, you will have to research Stan Meyer and then put two and two together. I cannot simply tell you because unless you do your own research, you will never understand. Also watchhttps://m.youtube.com/watch?v=QV3LVixS3zY

  • I guess I should have checked my spelling with spellcheck, oh wait, wench is spelt correctly, but at any rate, what ever I get here I deserve, wench = WINCH. Hope your healing process continues, I've had to duck a rolling pin from time to time. Been married for 39 years now, just had our anniversary, so things are good at the moment.

  • Thank you for the kind words Allen. I would love to see someone here build my sawmill. Even make improvements to the design for others to benefit from. I am amazed at the response I'm receiving from having posted my sawmill design here. There is so much interest in every aspect of building and creating here, that I have found a home. Instructables is truely a wonderful site to share knowledge.

    Oh ok, napping is a good thing, just not while driving or running the sawmill. He he.

    Yes, the wench did not work quite as well as the winch did, and the remote would not work on the wench at all, but does work on the winch quite well. Oh your avatar is sideways my Assistant1111= John.

    Thank you Allen for your contribution of planing slabs of wood, it will come in handy.

  • Thank you very much deluges.

    Thank you 1111, yes it took much time and determination, I think it to be well worth the effort, but now the real work begins, those future creations you mentioned. Fun times ahead.

    Yea, I have a new spare wench that came with a remote control. It will be a simple matter to set it up with a rheostat and the correct sprockets. That way I can speed the rolling frame up on return for another cut and slow it down for cutting.

    That was my thought before I built the sawmill. Slabs of wood were beyond my reach before, now I can cut any type wood I want and build something wonderful.

  • Thanks JmsDwh, I have about 70 logs to cut up into slabs averaging 24" in diameter and one I need to look at today an old oak that a storm carrying high winds knocked down recently, measuring 45' tall and 36" in diameter. So I'm going to get a work out, along with the sawmill.

    Thanks Josh, I will be adding steps to this post along with photos within them in order as the build progressed.

  • Just wanted to suggest something besides a metal roof, it all looks really good, but a white rubber roof would work very well for this project. Most travel trailers now days use them, they are very light weight, easy to install, durable, does not absorb heat like a metal roof would and cost effective. There are several manufacturers for this type roof GAF being one. Just my two cents.
