    Excellent advice by Lee above but one observation that I would make is that not all rifles will fit properly in a 38” gap between butt and barrel rest. Namely tactical rifles with 16” - 18” barrels...

    Oh boy... where to start.....

    First - branch lumber is typically not milled into lumber due to the fact that severe stresses are present in the wood. The top side of a branch typically has cells...

    Actually switching to 1” stickers would slow the velocity down - not speed it up (unless you had minimal plenum area on each side of your stacks).

    Glad to learn that your DH addition worked well.

    John, 150 FPM is fine; 350 is max. A 1” deflection is about right for 100 - 150 FPM. Air speed can vary depending upon the species; 150 is great for slow drying species such as oak; whereas pine and...

    Generally 30 degree rise is normal for dry wood - less for green lumber as the moisture release has a cooling effect in the kiln.

    I would go clear face up. In the past I've used a sander to blend in the sapwood and create a faux live edge (when the best face required the live edge curve to face down).

    Proper baffling makes a big difference in how well a solar kiln dries. You want to close up all of the opening around, on top, and underneath (leaving a 3/4" - 1" air gap on top...

    I had something similar happen with my 7.5hp Campbell Hausfeld compressor. Turns out that the big end of the connecting rod had worn quite a bit and was allowing the piston to hit the head.

    You might check with the Original Saw Company. They bought out Dewalt's tooling and still manufacture the saws. My 16" has an old Systimatic blade on it, but they have gone out of business.
