Anyone bought one of these harbor freight sawmills? Not trying to start a HF debate thread. I have some products from them that I’m happy with and vice versa.
I have a 60’ oak I’m taking down in my yard and want to mill it for various projects. A local guy said he could mill it for me for $600. He seems legit and I’m sure I could learn a lot by just watching him.
I was thinking of paying the additional $1800 for the actual mill myself and then I’d have a nice tool that I would definitely put to use. I have access to a variety of species of trees that need to be removed for family and friends. So plenty of wood to practice with.
I don’t have the time/skills to build my own. Just seeing if anyone has an opinion on this.
