I’ve seen videos about them…

They are really GOOD!

If you have a lot of wooded areas around you, you could really use this… not only for your own wood, but as a service to others and their wood…

If you’re more in the City type of area, this is probably NOT for you, unless you have a huge lot to put it on… BUT, have trees locally available…

That’s a good deal. I definitely recommend the LT15. I love mine. Great deal on the blades. The carbide aren’t cheap.

Hi Gene. No it is not that. He is getting a wider ELECTRIC saw mill from Woodmizer. He has some 40” logs down there and he may be getting a whole pistachio forest..He said he is going to get guys from Robson Ranch and the other parks to help him cut trees next year and share in on the good wood. I’ll go if I’m up to it. When I left this spring he had the place just full of mesquite and pistachio. I think he got the trees from California.

There is a lot of value in what he is selling. Those blades cost $125 each! and the motor is $1200 or better

Cheers, Jim

Just saw your post Jim. I’m very relieved.
40” mesquite slabs? ??? I see some big river tables.

Who is this guy? Is he a practitioner of the wooden arts, or just a sawyer? If the former, please lead us to his work.

The first time I ever saw one of those Woodmizers in action, at The Woodworking Show, years back, I was mesmerized. A portable sawmill, loading, cutting, and all but stacking huge boards and slabs. What a magical thing. And, a potentially profitable one. It ought to go fast. That seems like a remarkably low price. As I recall, the cheapest model in the line went for around $15,000. That was with the trailer and loading apparatus. And, OH. They have an electric one, now? That’s amazing. I guess it had to happen.

John is just an old guy who collects local woods from places where they’ve been removed for various reasons…road construction, new building etc. A lot comes from pecan and pistachio groves that need periodical thinning.
He does wood working also. Mostly commissioned work. But, the sawmill operation takes most of his time. He’s a one man show…as of now..
He invented a GPS system for crop dusters that are in use world wide. So, the wood thing is more or less a hobby. And, his prices are so very reasonable.

Hi Mark. He is a sawyer, a wood artist and good friend of mine. He has the only source of pistachio wood that I have ever found and he is very reasonable as Gene said. The way I met John was by his work that was on display in a little shop in Old Town Casa Grande. Beautiful tables and mirrors and other items made from pistachio and mesquite. He is at Dead Tree Salvage in Casa Grand…give him a call!

Cheers, Jim

Would he ship some of that pistachio wood? It sounds like it doesn’t come in big pieces.

Hi Ocelot. I have never know him to ship any wood, but ,depending on the size, he might. Give him a call. I just got off the phone with him. I put out the word on his sawmill a few years ago and he has had people from half the country stop there.

Cheers, Jim

He is a great guy, and a talented wood artist. His lumber is far below in price than any other place that I have shopped. And he keeps a good selection. I fell in love with the desert willow that he sold me, and when others saw how it turned out they were envious of it. I still have a huge slap of pistachio that I haven’t decided what I am going to do with.
If you ever have the opportunity to be in Casa Grande, Az. stop and buy some great wood from John.

Hi mudflap4869, He sure is a great guy. Keep that slab of pistachio close by where you can walk by it and it will tell you what it wants to be!!

Cheers, Jim
