Location: Toowoomba, QLD, Australia
Mill: 2007 10″ 27hp Kohler WPF
Add ons: Weatherboard attachment

Operation: Chris only bought his mill in December 07, but has already done so much with it. He has milled plenty of Australian hardwoods such as Iron Bark, Spotted Gum, Tallowood, Yellow Stringy and more. Chris started out milling just for himself but was recently asked if could go do some contract work for a local developer. Chris mainly mills decking timber and slabs.

Best feature: “EVERYTHING!”

Tip: “Use one of the “other” mills first, then you’ll appreciate the Peterson difference.”

Motto: “If I get myself an electric winch – I could get rid of the milk crate.”
