Logosol has some chain saw attachments for smaller saws. Their Timber Jig is about as basic as you can get, and the investment isn’t all that much. There has been a lot posted on Forestry Forum about chain saw mills. Main thing is a sharp chain and lots of patience. I’ve got a double-ended bar and can put a chain saw engine on both ends. It takes two people who know what they’re doing, but it certainly speeds up the process. I use a Husqvarna 2100 (99 c.c.s), and for what I do, it is about right. I’m on my third band saw mill—a Norwood, and so far very pleased with it. Doss, that’s a nice looking pile of wood in your photo. Need some help?
