It has been the week of breakdowns!!! The big kiln was down, The engine on the saw and edger both blew up!! But kiln is running and saw and edger both have new motors and running again. In the kilns 8/4 Ash, 8/4 Walnut and 8/4 Poplar this load I'm going to estimate being done between July 8th to the 11th, keep watching. The other kilns have 4/4 Cherry, Poplar, Walnut, these could be ready by the middle to the end of this week. We will be sawing on red oak first of the week.
The 8/4 Hickory is out of kiln. 5/4 Ash coming out of one kiln Monday. The 8/4 Walnut is held up! The kiln the 8/4 Walnut is in has been turned off due to a refrigerant leak. Parts are on the way but coming from the manufacturer "Nyle" located in Maine. Due to this unexpected breakdown this will push the 8/4 into the first week of July, maybe the second week.
