No problem, I thought people would enjoy reading and seeing some of this stuff.
As for the shinglemill, its a scary set up. The thing is, its not the saw that makes the actual shingles that gets you, its cutting the shingles off square on the secondary operation.
It was kind of funny, when my uncle built his shinglemill, he framed it all up, sheathed the sides, shingled the roof...then ordered a few square of cedar shingles from the local building supplier and put them on. He looked at me about halfway through the shingling of the building and said "I suppose this is ironic isn't it?"
Yes, yes it was!!
I have no intention of traveling from birth to the grave in a manicured and well preserved body; but rather I will skid in sideways, totally beat up, completely worn out, utterly exhausted and jump off my tractor and loudly yell, "Wow, this is what it took to feed a nation!"
