Signing in from Central Kentucky

Tue Jan 01, 2013 4:34 pm

Joined the forum a few days ago so would like to make an introduction.
I am Charles Barnes and live just south of Elizabethtown. I bought a Cub tractor
back in the mid 60's with a belly mower and added a sickle mower a little later.
Bought and sold several different ones through the years. I now have a 1964
Cub low-boy and 2 F-Cubs, a 1952 and 1954 (the '52 I bought just before Christmas off
Craigslist) and a parts Cub. I have a sawmill here at my house that I run and sell some
lumber for a little extra income being semi-retired from paperhanging and painting.
Got to say I really didn't know there was so interest in the Cubs untill I found
this forum.

Here is a picture of my sawmill and my 135 Massey with front end loader I use to move
and load logs on the mill and a picture of my Cub hooked to my log arch. I back the arch
over a log, hook a chain low on the angled bar and when I pull away the front of the log
raises up making it easier to pull.

Welcome to the forum, By now you know this is a great group of folks, eager to answer any question that comes along. Nice looking mill set up, I reckon that makes for an enjoyable semi retirement hobby.

Thanks, Barnyard, for the welcome and the e-mail welcome. I'm planning on making it to your
Barnyard Dash. And I do enjoy working with the sawmill. Been doing it for about 6 years.
(and thanks to Raymond, you posted while I was typing)

Welcome aboard Charlie. This is the best Cub website on the planet. I like the saw mill. My neighbor had one just like it. He sold it a few years ago due to his age and health. With your history with Cubs, I look forward to hearing more from you as you contribute to this site. :big afro:

Charlie:

G'day again. I like you band saw mill :D Be useful to have but not something I could do myself anymore. I imagine it would be enjoyable - I love the smell of fresh sawn wood. Oh one thing that we like on this forum is pics .... so we want more of your band saw mill and arch :idea: :)

Image to Farmallcub.com :big smile: Forum Family. And you have come to the right place for all things Cub related. If you click on the Site Rules, Regulations, & Important Information, it will point you to :arrow: the Welcome Wagon wherein you will find links to many useful sites and topics. One of which is the Cub Manual Server. Enjoy!.

Welcome, Charlie. My wife and I love Kentucky; she's a quilter (Paducah) and I'm a Bluegrass fan (Rosine/Bill Monroe). We visited Elizabethtown back in 2003 on a vacation swing out to Lexington and back. Great state; would like to live there some day.

Again, welcome!

Welcome, very nice rig and set up you have, would love to see it work in person.
I think the MF 135 is the best all around tractor ever made plus they come in diesel or gas. :D
