It is what I use. I have had good luck with mine, but it is slow. I use a Stilh MS660 with a 36” bar. I can cut up to a 31” slab. I am actually looking for a bandsaw mill because I can’t produce lumber fast enough with it. As far as waste, I lose 3/8” per cut. Bandsaws are generally 1/3 or less of that. Cutting Beetle Pine when there is millions of board feet available is one thing. Cutting Black Walnut when I struggle to every get one is painful. Hope this helps.
