First time out with the Alaskan Sawmill

My friend Paul let me borrow his 36″ Alaskan sawmill.  I purchased a Stihl MS 391 and a 32″ bar to go along with the mill.  Yesterday I took this rig up to the Forest to test things out.

With a Stihl ripping chain, I thought the results were OK.  Definitely not awesome.  I think playing around with the grind angle on the chain will help some.  For the most part, I plan to cut beams and build a pergola in my yard.  It should work fantastic for that.  I was playing around cutting boards just to test the thing out.
