    A new sawmill based on old design of a sash gang saw.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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 .

    Would need a saw doctor to sharpen and sat the blade.

    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.

    Im glad I am watching the video, not the one on it.

    I’ve been thinking of getting a portable band saw style.
    Anyone have any input , In the $5k range.

    A guy I know reps these, the price seems to be right, I don’t know a lot about the saws however.

    @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.

    That’s an interesting mill. Is it an old one, or a new replica of an old, or just an new mill?

    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 have

    You don’t know until you go and ask, maybe get a good deal.
