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
Sandy Lloyd Jr: Very well done video.
Why any one would give this video a thumbs down is beyond me.
luketdrifter2100: I dream of being able to make a few extra bucks doing this. I start as
soon as the snow melts.
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
Computer-Chkn: lol at the smoking drill 9:12
Warren Smith: lol "mad skills"
Robert Watson: What is the drill attachment you are using which automatically finds the
center of the board?
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. :)
Michael Hutin: Invaluable is the best word to describe the chainsaw mill, once you got it,
you can build anything.
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
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.
Dill-Pickle-GAMEZ: Flys down...
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.
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
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!
ekhaat: I really salute you for keeping those craftsman skills alive.
Carl Parsons: TNX!
Bantax69: I really liked the bit at the end.
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..
Wilhelm Reich: Love it, thanks for the upload and inspiration..
tek9tim: I like using half an extension ladder for a guide instead. Just use 2x2s
with square or torx decking screws leveled and screwed into each end of the
log, and just use clamps on the far end (switch to the end I started on
once I get to the end) to hold the ladder still. That way, I don't worry
about exact length of the logs, and am not locked into exactly what the
guide is. (To be fair, I am usually slabbing for furniture, or other such
things that do not require precise length at the time of milling) Then you
have rungs of the ladder right above the top of the log, slide a falling
wedge between a couple rungs for extra support. Straighter and stronger
than 2x4s. Been using my Granberg that way for a decade. Also, 66cc? Good
joke.I will say that I use my ported and polished Stihl 660 (92cc) for my
setup, and have run an 088 (121cc) on the same setup, and the 088 did not
give nearly the performance I expected. If a guy runs a 066/660, and feels
it's too slow, just port and polish it (and gut and port the muffler,
unlimit the carb, advance the ignition, and increase the compression) and
it will perform near enough to not care to a stock 088 in a AK mill.
100braindart: yep, better get my pistol.I got to build this chainsaw mill kit. suspenders
and a belt...this guy is cool.
Gary Parker: Thank you for making this video. I'm looking to do this living off the grid
and your videos are giving me some very good ideas.. The mill looks to be
well worth the price you paid... i'm looking into get one of those to mill
my own wood to build my home or add on to the home.. thanks again..
TheSalsy1: You have to be able to bring food home for the family. Nothing wrong with
having a job and working on the side to save money.
Granberg International: Hey Wranglerstar, thanks for the nice things you said about our Alaskan
MKIII! There's nothing like unsolicited endorsements from regular people. I
am enjoying all your other videos too. Keep up the good work!
tyomen: Thanks for the beautiful vid, as always. Do you prefer this set-up vs the
ladder with the portable chainsaw mill?
newportbeachsailor: OFF THE GRID? Usually means you don't need the big power and utility
companies. It means you can supply your basic needs off the land you own.
It does not mean you don't have any modern tools. To live a primitive life
would mean you don't have any modern equipment that use gas an electric
energy and you use only Hand Tools and animals. Even the Amish who use a
lot of hand tools and animals to do their work still use some modern
conviences and power equipment.
The famous Ralph Edwards of Lonesome Lake fame in the British Columbia
Rockies... who eventually did build himself a float plane, was definitely
Off The Grid. He was a 1-2 day hike to the nearst settlement of 7
buildings. He did have some modern tools and sources of energy that he
eventually got to his homestead but they were independant of any outside
utility power or water companies.
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 $60....very versatile
HarryG Marshall: Almost bought one, afraid it would be to slow , but the way you explained
it I can see the real benifits,I invested in a woodmizer which faster but
at fifty times the cost,well done.
Venom Veneno: I really enjoyed your speech at the end of the video. I wish more
academians understood this truth.
MsDAFUk: does having a gun on you get in the way of your work?
kenneth lorne Simpson: how many people do you employ?
James DeLarvin: That was a great presentation and I particularly like the holds bard
approach on name brands. Looking for your demonstration of with this setup.
I too enjoyed your closing thoughts. Madsen has a good officer working for
lars gullqvist: do you rily 2x4 or kan you do it bay 2x2????
lars gullqvist: bay a mill for som tausens$
Gary Holmes: Great video Sir!
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
so when I see your videos I think of what this generation is really missing
out on. Pride
58belvedere: Ordered a Granburg Mill from Baileys I can't wait to get it. Great videos
take care stay safe.
astrialinda H: Great vid! Great attitude! Yes - skills are needed,-the more you have the
better off you can be. And skills can be learned through dedication and
the will to further ourselves! TY!
slofr8dan: Search Mike Rowe and see what he's doing along this line.
MrZking321: doesn't look off the grid
Jim Marcum: do you have any more of those hats. i'd like to have two.
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
DemonHide: Great thoughts, Cody. I agree with your statements for many of the same
reasons. Although, earlier in life I was perhaps too opposed to those with
degrees and a college education. Since then, I've come to respect anyone
who works hard, whether it be for a degree (even though I still don't hold
that goal high on my list) or working to get something physical done.
Ruben Rojas: I'm a carpenter in the north pacific where we are surrounded by redwood
timber and everyone here mills there own lumber. There is nothing like
having the means to mill a large volumes of beams on demand. The
satisfaction of milling and building is well worth the labor. Keep it up.
Apollo1van: I totally agree about working with hands and building something how do
these people think we have arrived where we are today if not for the
skilled tradesman . You are right a guy can do what he has to with what he
can find and work with there are so much wasted wood just laying around to
made into something or heat your home .
caverkevin: First of your videos that I have watched. You do a great job with your
video work as well as your trade work. Also like the hardware!
Nucc's Garage: that long ass video and you didnt even show video of you milling wood...
Mrx9999999: If I ever get toxAlaska I will try to find you, you seem like a really nice
young man. Good luck with all that you do. I am stuck here in Ajax,
Ontario, Canada and at 70 i guess this is about as far as I am going. Nice
group of videos.
