The meeting is going to be held at my place, and I am going to supply the elm for the seat blanks.
This means that for once I actually have a purpose for sawing with the mulesaw.
going through 24" of old elm isn't easy, so one plank takes more than 1 hour to saw. Yesterday I had to rearrange the motor for the mulesaw, because the flat belts kept slipping. Now I have made the setup, so there is no clutch between the electric motor and the saw, but still it is not a fast saw.
The good thing is, that the surface looks nice, and the board is flat.
Compare the size of the log to the standard barrel next to it.
