    Or a ladder?

    Anything thats wide and flat thats strong enough to hold it. A lot of guys use a section of extension ladder. Thats my plan.

    ....and Rory beat me to it by seconds.

    At least a big roll is not as likely to disappear into the "Den Garage" and not be rediscovered for decades.

    So do I !!! Oh wait.

    Guys talk about how slow chainsaw milling is compared to a proper band saw mill. Only thousands more dollars and you have to set up the track....have to get the logs up onto the cradle between the tracks. For the love of Pete...Im not going into production here. I want half a dozen pieces to make a few live edge tables and shelves. A few friends have said they want some too. I dont mind cutting a few more if theyre willing to chip in for the expenses of getting it......or even better, just come out and help me get a load of firewood one day, and we'll cut some 4" thick planks while we're at it. My main reason for buying that big honkin saw was because I got it cheap and and I knew I could fix it up and buy the milling attachment for less than the cost of buying live edge slabs. Well...that, and I wanted to be the coolest kid on my street by having the biggest saw. ROFL !

    ropeshop.ca has a pretty good price, canadaparacord.ca. Never dealt with ropeshop, seem to recall meeting the guy from canadaparacord at a gun show a few years back, seemed cool.

    There's really nothing special about paracord. It's just sheathed nylon rope.
    This guy's in the States. 1,000 feet is $50US.
    https://paracord.com/
    $103.95Cdn from these guys.
