It's a Norwood HD36 portable sawmill. Have so many projects going on that I decided to make my own lumber vs buying it from Lowes.
No, didn’t seal anything. I covered the frame with backer board and applied the adhesive to the Air Stone and stuck it onto the backer board. It held for a couple of years before the Air Stone started to fall off. The adhesive stuck pretty well to the backer board but didn’t stick worth a damn on the Air Stone.Hey Jim - When you put the rock on originally, did you seal the rock first? Last time we put in granite tiles, we were told to seal both sides of the granite first. Well, the adhesive doesn't stick to the sealant so the tiles popped right off. Wondering if you had the same issue. In general, don't seal a rock surface on the side that will receive the adhesive.
Hi Lee! I was on the fence for awhile myself but one day I jumped down and said the heck with it! I have plans for a solar kiln that I will build as soon as I get some of the other "gotta-builds" out of the way. Gotta build a shed for the sawmill, gotta build storage racks for my wood, gotta build loading ramps for the logs, etc. etc.Mills are addictive☺ Is their a kiln dry anywhere close to you? I prefer air dry but to get wood dry enough for a floor takes a long time. You can find on the internet good instructions for building small kilns where you can build your own.
Keep posting photos, I'll bet you will be the tipping point for a few guys who have been thinking about buying their own mill☺☺☺
