My husband is looking to make a homemade sawmill, can anyone help us with this project, or have any tips.
Thanks,
Wendy

I have built a swingblade type mill. I really wanted a Peterson, just couldn't afford it. It took a while to figure out, but it works and operates just like the high dollar one. I did build it out of steel, souly because I have the ability to weld it. I am currently adding an electric winch to raise and lower it. Any help you might need, feel free to drop me a line. Good luck.

Hello Wendy, I don't know how you have got on, seeing as your message about making a bandsaw was posted 4 years ago. I am in the process of making my own mobile bandsaw mill from aluminium and plans that I have drawn up myself, which I hope will cot logs upto 56 inches wide successfully, using a 20hp petrol engine. If you would like to correspond with your own endeavours and share information (you could see my own drawings if you like), then please get in touch. Richard

I am looking to purchase 2 sawmills 15feet long with 40 inch blade. It needs some work on the wood frame and maybe some teeth sets put in. The price is 350.00. Does anyone know if this is a good deal?

Thanks

Jim

I am in the process of building a full size sawmill for my current house building project.
My plan consists of dropping the trailer idea and utilizing one of the old trucks I have lying around as a base for the actual mill as well as for transportation purposes.
I had planned on running the unit off of the rear wheels, but have opted for a gasoline engine I picked up at a garage sale.
GOOD LUCK.

Well, it isn't home made, and I don't make anythng for pushing them, but if you can swing a WoodMizer sawmill, they are the absolute berries. I just came in from running mine. I work it alone, and can cut logs up to 30" diameter, and 24' long.
