SAW BUCKS: TAKING THE BULL BY THE HORNS

The First and Only Sawmill Forum to Put Sawyers in the Drivers Seat

At last there’s a new forum out there that’s geared up for sawmill operators and it looks like “Saw Bucks” is just what the doctor ordered. Focused on sawmills and all aspects of the trade, Sawyers take the lead instead of being a secondary topic section like other sites where milling is not the main stream content but just a spin off. After seeing how each section addresses all the inner workings of a sawmill operation it becomes clear this is something new. No where can you find a place that puts the Sawyers at the front of the pack instead of a smaller group that is overshadowed by a crowed forum. This down to earth group is not flashing fancy ads from sponsors but instead real people talking about real world methods, tools and techniques.

At first look you see a light hearted approach to the many facets of the lumber trade by the way their forums are categorized: “Sawing for Bucks” and “Bucking for Change”. These are serious considerations for all Sawyers but are tackled in a way to keep things fun and entertaining. “Splinters” is where you find off topic information about most anything a sawmill might experience.

There is an obvious appeal to the public at large through their promotion of eco friendly salvage and recycling of urban trees. You can tell that this will spread beyond just sawmills when looking at the “Save the Trees” section where there is plenty of photos and stories about salvaging trees and logs. “The Buck Stops Here” is another place where you can find tips and information on how to make a difference in your neighborhood. This is the right place for anyone to talk with the professionals if you are looking for advice or information.

Portable sawmills have increasingly become popular among wood workers, tree services and tree farmers and now there is a perfect place for them to network and prosper. Its clear Saw Bucks has the potential to grow into a premiere site for the sawmill and timber industry.

Good idea especially if it connects me with a local sawyer. So where is the link?

Yup, the link is still down. Sounds interesting though.
