Sawmill shopping. Thinking of Wood-mizer? Check this.

I’m in the market for a sawmill. I sent a legit question to the Wood-mizer web site asking about motor options. I posted the question to their web site. The person who picked up that inquiry, Dave Cheel, forwarded it to the National Sales Manager BUT not without adding in their own comments first. [Edit: Correction: It appears that comment was from Dorian Lavallee (National Sales Mgr), not Dave Cheel.]

Nice. Do you really think I would ever buy something from Wood-Mizer now?

Sea Can Guy delivers 40 ft storage container

A local company sells the 20ft and 40ft containers, at a reasonable price delivered. We thought about getting one for a while, just never committed on it. So, since the containers where locally available, the next decision was to determine if delivery was possible to our location. Steep driveway and getting around a pre-existing building are the obstacles. They came for a site visit and said it was possible. A couple days later, they show up with the container. This video is a record of that delivery.
