Well after two years of planning and buying parts, I came across a guy selling a used saw mill. So I had to reconsider the whole idea of building one. As they say that was a “no brainer”
This is my first sawmill so I can’t compare it to others but it works very well. It had plenty of power cut throw that 26” wide oak. The up and down uses a manual crank it is a bit hard to run the saw up but it does work. It is a Log Master LM 1 Portable Sawmill. It has a 30” capacity throat and can cut 12’ long. Powered by 13hp gas engine w/ a centrifugal clutch. It is a manual carriage.
Hal, you are right about the work out, man those log are heavy.
