Up to this point I have used an Alaskan Chainsaw Mill to cut all of my wood. It was slow, but fine for what I was doing. As time has progressed I can no longer cut fast enough to keep up with orders. So last fall I decided to get a bandsawmill. BBecause I am a cheapskate and a DIY’r I decided to build my own. I bought the parts for the saw assembly as a unit. It’s the frame and track that I am building.
Got all of the steel here today for the sawmill. Hopefully start assembly tomorrow afternoon. A friend of mine is one of those welders that is truly an artist at what he does. He is doing all of the welding for me. Of course he is expecting some furniture for payment.
Right now it takes 2-3 hours to cut up a log. That should drop to 20-30 minutes a log. Also getting the shop set up to be easier to move in. Start of a new adventure.
