Like I mentioned in the last post I have been looking at some portable band mills the last few days. Here is a link with some pics if you are interested. I want one that will cut 2000 board feet of lumber a day, about 250 board feet per hour. I plan on cutting logs for people into boards or posts or maybe even some cabin logs. A few people around here do this and make pretty good money at it too. Most charge around 200 - 250 per 1000 board feet of lumber that they saw, some saw for half the lumber. All stay busy !! I need one that I can run all by myself if need be. I do have a friend that lives close by that says he would love to work with me on this if I can find the one I want at the price I want. I was hoping to find one for around 10 grand, looks like the one I need and want is closer to 20 grand tho. LOL I have to find someway to make some cash, good cash too. Everything I have touched the last few months has cost me $500 it seems, really. I have just about spent out. The next thing I fork out money for had damn well better be making me some money. My expenses are going up and my income is going down every day. It's getting real near crunch time, something has got to start making money around here or the party is going to come to a sudden stop real fast like.
No one else seems to think much about it, 500 here, a thousand there...it adds up pretty damn quick like when it comes out of my pocket. We are on a cash basis here so there is none of that charge it stuff either, all right out of pocket. Time to start putting some back in ol dads pocket too or this well is going to go dry. I really think I can stay as busy as I want with a band mill, at least enough to easy the pain of those hands sticking out in front of me all the time. Now don't get me wrong, I love to give my kids the things they need and want but hey, it all costs money ya know and I'm the feller they look to. So, just got to get some more of that old nasty money I guess. Makes the world go round they tell me. Just makes me dizzy is all. LOL
Anyway, as soon as I land on something that can make me some coin I'll let ya'll know. Maybe some of you have had experience with a band mill and want to share your thoughts, I hope so. I'd love to hear from you if you do.
Well, I'm off to research some more of these band mills online. I have been to look at 5 of them here in the state the last few days and I think I know what I want and need to make this all work out. First, a bunch of money to buy a mill, second, some people with a bunch more money that want me to saw their logs and most of all, the energy and brains to get them all together at the same time.
I don't mean to lay all my troubles on you all, just want you to know that no matter who you are or how much you got, there never seems to be enough. I'm in the same boat too. I know what the problem is, we all just want to damn much stuff. I don't really want much but I want a hell of a lot for my girls and if that's wrong then just color me wrong.
