« Part 2: From tree to lasting memory #2: Part 3 of From tree to lasting memory series Part 4: sawmill finished »

After much debate I moved ahead to build a Bandsaw type saw mill. So, I begain looking for the parts needed to build this saw. Being a frugal person my first stop was Ebay. For $50 I got a used EDCO SB24-35W Self Propelled Walk Behind Concrete Saw

Why concrete saw, well for 50 bucks I got-
a Hydrostatic transmission Wisconsin (Gas)engine
and may other parts that will come in handy

Great start on a good idea, that Wisconsin is a good motor, and if it is not in top shape, the parts are
readily available to overhaul it. Are you planning a vertical or horizontal mill, or just going to let the ideas
flow and see what you wind up with? I like your proverb, I keep telling people that the reason my hair
is not grey is because of my misspent youth, and I am never going to grow up.
