A new sawmill based on old design of a sash gang saw.March 13, 2015 at 4:03 pm #294376jponto07ModeratorBloomington, IN
That’s interesting and confounding all at the same time.
Where did you come across this? It seems home made. Something about the way it takes a minute to reach full speed maybe??
I would think a continuous motion like a bandsaw would be better… But I don’t know anything about sawing logs.March 13, 2015 at 4:11 pm #294380crotaluscoProwest bend, wi
interesting for sureMarch 13, 2015 at 4:35 pm #294414
That is an interesting mill. I don’t know that I would want to be around it all day. I thought this one that popped up at the end was unique also.March 13, 2015 at 4:53 pm #294429
It popped up at the end of a video I was watching.
Swing blades are nice and simple and don’t have to man handle the log.March 13, 2015 at 4:54 pm #294430cranbrook2ProBelgrave, Ontario , Canada

That is pretty wild , I have only ever seen one with a single blade and it cut horizontally . That sure speeds it up a lot . I bet the blades cost a fortune to sharpen .March 13, 2015 at 5:11 pm #294446
Would need a saw doctor to sharpen and sat the blade.March 13, 2015 at 5:18 pm #294460
I am always amazed when I see old machinery like that that have been preserved in working condition. It really goes to show how far things have come, yet how much they are the same. I think the heritage that is preserved in places like that is invaluable.March 13, 2015 at 6:22 pm #294495SiberianPro
Im glad I am watching the video, not the one on it.March 14, 2015 at 12:53 pm #295033jaydeeProSpencer, Ma., happy 2015
cool videos for sure.
I’ve been thinking of getting a portable band saw style.
Anyone have any input , In the $5k range.March 14, 2015 at 1:02 pm #295034
A guy I know reps these, the price seems to be right, I don’t know a lot about the saws however.March 14, 2015 at 1:37 pm #295050kzcarpPro
@kurt@welkerhomes The place that sells those Hud – son mills is about 15 miles from me. All kinds of mill and forestry gear.

I am building my own bandsaw mill maybe I can finish it this year if nothing else breaks and get a few spare dollars.March 14, 2015 at 5:00 pm #295180Seven-Delta-FortyOneProThe Emerald Triangle, Northern California
That’s an interesting mill. Is it an old one, or a new replica of an old, or just an new mill?

That’s wild to see in action . Super sharp is a must .
Always willing to learn .March 14, 2015 at 8:21 pm #295319March 14, 2015 at 9:03 pm #295362KenWPro

Very nice videos, Thank you for posting. Like to watch old machinery in action. Just goes to show how over built they were.

There’s a big old bandsaw type mill that’s trailer-able with it’s own wheels just about a mile away from me here at a farm, It doesn’t look like it’s been touched in years. but still good enough shape, I’d love to have one. I think there is money to be made with one around here, I’ve been meaning to go knock on the door over there but never haveMarch 15, 2015 at 9:46 am #295617
