What to bring when Milling . . .


  • Gloves -- thick, leather. Helps absorb vibration. Padded are all the better.
  • Dust mask. Not the paper kind, they're not enough.
  • Hearing protection, either ear plugs or headsets.
  • Chaps. With a chainsaw, you really should have them.
  • First aid kit (how many of us actually bring one of these?)

RipSaw . . .

  • Chainsaw powerhead
  • Mill
  • Extra blades
  • Slabbing rails and related equipment
  • Spare cover, extender and End clamp knobs
  • Spare End Clamp/Chisel pins
  • Spare Guide Bearing

Also bring plenty of water for drinking and a few snacks.
