In our first house we had a fast growing maple tree we weren’t sure we were going to keep. It was a monster and I hated the idea that all that would could be going to waste as fire wood. Actually I feel that way anytime I see a tree down.
In any event I started looking at chainsaw milling systems. Many used a 2×4 as the guide, but I wasn’t a fan. I then came across the Logosol TimberJig
For only $165 bucks I figured why not.
Ideally you should get the aluminum rails, but at this point it isn’t an option for me.
I had made a rail once before but the 2×6 twisted so the cuts were VERY far off.
Now for a new rail. 2×8’s. Routed out a channel for the level rail and cut braces for support and twist prevention.
Chainsaw milling is a different breed, but it provides other options and operations you may not be able to do with a bandsaw mill. I visited the Buffalo warehouse for Logosol recently and they could not have been nicer. Got to play with the toys, and discuss the different equipment.
In about a month or so I hope to be able to saw up those logs in the background to make timberframe saw horses. Yes I should have done them when they were green…...
