What do you think about this video?

Tyler Oswald: Could you not use 1inch aluminum square tubing to be sure it was square? be strong and light

Steve B: show it working

Hardwood Hollow Bushcraft: Cool video brother. I especially liked your little speach at the end about tradesman. I'm one of those guys you were describing. I was raised during the Carter administration in the 70s. We were poor in money but rich in skill. I was lucky enough to be surrounded by carpenters and mechanics and other craftsmen. I am very curious by nature and am a sponge for knowlege. In fact when the preacher asked my wife for things about me she liked in our pre-marital counseling she listed my ability to fix things. I am very disappointed by much of the youth today who as you said look down on guys like us. However when the SHTF we are the ones who will prosper and also be the ones whom those very same upturned nosed folks will come to for our skills and knowlege. P.S. Nice to see you unabashedly open carrying on camera as well. You also seem to have a very nice shop.

Justin Patalsky: Man, you just gave me the motivation I was searching for. Thanks Wranglerstar!

73 SUPERGLIDE: MAN HAVE PLASTIC AND LAZY AND HAVE SOME ELSE FOR THEN RITE HOW BUT THING ARE CHANGE THEY WILL BE LOOKING TO YOU GUYS FOR HELP 

Justin Svendsen: good show mate seems like you zipper is afraid of hights

jlw60186: You earned my like with the informational video, but you made me like it immediately by saying, "mad skills."

mike vantol: Flying low

Gary Evans: Health & safety bullcrap it's common sense no more pen pusher wankers that's what we need get rid of them we can all live safe. & not fear drowning in bullcrap good work with this mate

73 SUPERGLIDE: PEOPLE HAVE THERE OPTIONS ALL ON ALL THINGS THAT YOUR LOVE IS WOOD WORKING ,IF THINK TO MUCH BUILD ONE PRETTY EASY 

Sandy Lloyd Jr: Very well done video. Why any one would give this video a thumbs down is beyond me.

Karl Weathers: lol "mad skills" 

Dave's Handy Crafts: Don't use 2x4's. Get yourself some 2x2 box steel rails. It will slide much better, and much straighter.

Love2boat92: At the end of this video Cody you brought up a lot of good points. People that can do many things and didn't go to college are frowned upon. It's a shame. College isn't for everyone.

loooseunit: Instead of 2x4 timber why didn't they supply aluminium beams ,a lot better they don't worp !

general_war: do you carry your gun when you go to bed? must be a thrill, living an exciting life like this, having to carry your gun even when at home. you are truly free

Shane Roper: Your absolutely right! Those "highly educated" people seem to forget,..If it weren't for versatile people like skilled tradesmen too build them their homes, they'd all be living in tents and cardboard boxes! 

luketdrifter2100: I dream of being able to make a few extra bucks doing this. I start as soon as the snow melts.

Computer-Chkn: lol at the smoking drill 9:12

Dill-Pickle-GAMEZ: Flys down...

Joe Dykstra: One day it would be awesome to own a Granberg's Alaskan Mill and build my own house with one. Thanks for showing us your experience Wranglerstar!

ih1206: I absolutely agree with your comments at the end of your video. I personally am going to school for mechanical engineering. But I was born and raised on a farm so not only can I do the more brainiac school stuff, but I can also weld ( to an extent), do basic metal machining, repair a lot of equipment, handle livestock, pretty much everything you mentioned I have done a little of. I'm no expert in anything but I think its important to be a jack of all trades even if your a master on none!

killenum123: I have been using both of these mills for 20 years now and they work perfectly. Our latest project is a new woodshed with a summer kitchen attached. All the lumber is coming from our land and my teen boys are getting a lesson in true life skills.

Marcos Mancini: Why the pistol? are you a bad boy? 

Bantax69: I really liked the bit at the end.

ekhaat: I really salute you for keeping those craftsman skills alive.

David Hales: Regarding your speech on trades at the end. Bravo!!! You should check out Mike Rowe's Profoundly Disconnected. It is good to see the push to get skills back in the hands of our youth.

Michael Hutin: Invaluable is the best word to describe the chainsaw mill, once you got it, you can build anything.

AMVgrow Indoor Grower: Zipper -_-

Rick B: Cool stuff! Thought about doing that before but still hav'nt got the acreage.... I have almost 40 years combined experience as a Carpenter, Plumber, Electrician, Mechanics, some Pneumatics, Hydraulics, Millwright. I've been building Computers for 19 years & some Robotics too.

Robert Watson: What is the drill attachment you are using which automatically finds the center of the board?

Harvey Nichols: Thank you sir, there is so many young and even middle aged people both men and women that have lost their jobs that needs the good advice you gave on this video. I grew up in the hills of Northeast Oklahoma with Arkansas just out the back door and Missouri just out the front door so I know what you mean by being a jack of all trades, being able to make a living doing several different types of work . We have a lot of good hardwood timber so saw mills have always been a part of our lives.. In my 63 years using the skills my Father taught me has put groceries on the table many times. Being able to just cut your own lumber with a small mill has saved me thousands of dollars in building materials besides making money by cutting for a lot of other people. If you have a small tractor and a small truck and chain saws you can always make a dollar, besides you can build your own roads or put in your own septic system, lay your own water lines or do it for your neighbors. Keep giving the good advice , your good at it and today many besides the young can benefit from it. Good advice is needed from someone besides the book experts..

David Goodridge: Amen brother. This country is in need of skilled craftsmen!

Richard Hilbert: I noticed in a lot of your videos you carry a side arm and you stated that you are a First Responder but did not say what type. Firefighter, sheriff. or some other not getting personal just wondering if you could share. thanks for great videos I really like them 

Colin Green: I got a BeamMachine, it just attaches to the blade of your saw, you screw a 2x4 to your log, and the channel guides your saw along then the 2x4 and along the log. Plus, it was delivered to my door for $60....very versatile and compact.

Paul Cardosi: that little talk you did there towards the end is something more of our young people need to hear. coming from a family of various craftsmen, it amazes me that more folks don't learn multiple trades.

MrBugsier5: Totally agree with your opinion Code!, skilled workers is wat wee all need, no pencil pushers! I agree that education to some point is a good thing, butt learning to work with your hands and making things is mutch more usable!,

Jason Renfro: lol your zipper is down. love you videos.

Gary Holmes: Great video Sir!

Devin Crowther: Thank you for sharing your thoughts and ideas through video. It makes my happy to see you take pride in your work. Keep up the good work. :)

MsDAFUk: does having a gun on you get in the way of your work?

Rich Hays: A video with an Open Carry! LOVE IT. Nice to see a great made video and a person who still thinks it is politically Ok to open carry. Nice work young Man

Jacob Williams: Nice saw mill. Your research paid off, Great video! 

Venom Veneno: I really enjoyed your speech at the end of the video. I wish more academians understood this truth. 

Wilhelm Reich: Love it, thanks for the upload and inspiration.. 

kenneth lorne Simpson: how many people do you employ?

mark woronko: y u have a gun on u

David Hourigan: Hi Cody, just wondering what your thoughts on the mill are today versus when you made this video. I wonder if your years of use would lead you to conclude the mill is worth the $300 investment or you might now make a different decision rather than the one you initially made? Great work! Keep it up.

bobkins270: I agree with you about learning a trade. My grandfather died when I was 20. Up untill that time I was his shadow. He constantly told me, "a man that can work with his hands will never go hungry". In the early 30s he had 5 children and was fired from his job because he lived on a farm. He had a rag tag sawmill, which he cut fire wood and lumber, that he sold. The buildings on his old farm are still standing and strong, even though they have been standing 80 years. Also I forgot to mention he had a 1st grade education. so when I see your videos I think of what this generation is really missing out on. Pride Thanks Brad

Geoffrey Crego: Loved you thoughts near the end of the video. I firmly believe that someone who is a jack-of-all-trades is a valued commodity in today's society. I am glad my Dad taught me that nothing is to challenging to try and learn to do.
