I have been intrigued by the Logosol chainsaw mill for quite a long time now. In particular the M7 Chainsaw Mill. But in the high two thousand dollar range, it is way out of my budget. I believe that the mill is not nearly worth that price. I So, I think I’m going to start making my own chainsaw mill out of wood! I plan to make a wooden platform for the log bed with steps so I can move the log up one at a time. To control the depth of cut I am going to build a sled that will slide a long a rail. The rails height can be adjusted with pegs in the rail at different heights. The chainsaw itself will hookup to the sled the the bar bolts the the sled. The chainsaw is probably going to be the stihl ms 290 (The Farm Boss).
If any of you out there have made your own chainsaw mill or have any experience with sawmills please chime in!
