Location: St Johnsville, New York, USA
Mill: 2002 8″ 24hp Honda WPF
Add Ons: Weatherboard attachment

Operation: Karl’s WPF is a Hi/Lo set up which has been set up in a shed so that he can mill all year-round. Milling mostly softwood such as White Pine, Hemlock and Fir for construction framing, Karl has built a 240 square foot addition to his home, and a new entrance to his store using the lumber milled from his Peterson Sawmill.

Best feature: “The electric start Honda motor. Save those pull cords for the younger guys.”

Tip: “Don’t hit your saw dogs. There are those that have (me) and those that will.”

Last Words: “OOPS” “All joking aside, the Peterson sawmill is a great asset for me and I could talk about it all day long. It is a perfect match for what I need in a mill without the huge expense to operate it.

Karl likes to take his mill to the log as it is sometimes easier, in this picture Karl is milling a Hemlock log
