The SB1020 is a swing saw (swing blade) type sawmill. By swinging the saw/blade no edging is needed and there are only six saw teeth that need to be sharpened. Below is a video:
One of my chemo drugs creates nerve damage. Along with feet pain that makes it difficult to walk it also attacks the tongue. That makes it very difficult to drink most liquids. I found the below hot chocolate drink to be drinkable.
- 3 teaspoons of powdered pure chocolate found in the baking section.
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla.
- I have added some honey but it tastes good without it.
- Heat in the microwave.
It is important to drink liquids during the chemo treatment however it is difficult to find something that is drinkable.
Most people simply attach a tee to the air inlet of the engine’s carburetor. There will be a choke valve on the air inlet side that adjusts the fuel mixture. The other opening of the tee is the fuel inlet and the third goes to the carburetor. The advantage with this method is that the engine can be dual fueled with gasoline.
I have made my own carburetor but that is time consuming.
For a nice clean setup and no need to buy a mixture valve, because the original carburetor choke valve is used, is to modify the original carburetor. See the below video and photo. The fuel inlet is a reused vitamin bottle. This is were the fuel line is removed and the draft fan is used to start the gas producer.
My first small scale skidding was accomplished by using the stock sleeve on the Wheel Horse. An attachment was made to lift the log somewhat. See photo above.
Later the stock sleeve hitch was remove an a 2″ receiver hitch was installed. Next a winch attachment was fabricated and used. This allowed the stem to be lifted higher and more could be skidded at one time. The winch helps to reach stems that you can not back right up to. See photo above and photos below.
I first had the On-Body Injector placed on the back of my arm. This placement was a problem when sleeping on my back or the same side that the On-Body Injector was on because it was in the way. It felt uncomfortable and I worried that it might disconnect from my arm. I also had problems removing it with it on the back of my arm.
After having it on my arm twice I switched to having it on my stomach. Now I can sleep on my back and left or right hand side. Also, I seem to have less pain. I think that might be because there is little fat on the back of my arm however there is some fat on my stomach. I also have both hands free to remove it when it is done injecting.

Below are two photo of this early design on a Wheel Horse. The black plastic bucket is the gas filter. The last photo shows the converted engine and functioning gas producer. This Wheel Horse is now fueled with charcoal. There are two important issues that need to be correct in order for this to function. The first is that the charcoal needs to be 1/2″ in size and less. A lower percentage of 1/2″ size is better. Second issue is there needs to be no air leaks into the system.
