Just wanted to get some opinons on a bandsaw sawmill. I built one odds & ends & some new metal. It great for something that was homemade out of riding mower parts. I think i read on here a few yearsago that ( i think that Zane ) had built one cant remember.

Thanks for all response Fordsonfulk

I would like to see what you built. I sold mine about six months ago for $700. Had more than that in it if you counted my labor but I never count that. It's cheap!

Mine worked pretty good but would only take a 16" log on the big end and that limited it sorta. Could make about a 12 board if you held your mouth just right.

Had trouble with early breaking of the blades. I think it was because of the diameter of the steel drive saw wheels and that it did not have any rubber like the Mizers have on the drive wheels. If I were to make another one I would use pulleys like the mizer so that it could use the rubber belt for the blade to run on. I think that is the secret to blade life. I might get to sharpen a blake one time before it broke. I really needed a blade welder or some way to put them back together. They always broke in the weld.

Send us some pictures/

Never have built one, but helped feed and stack from a WoodMizer one day, and can vouch for the quality of their product.

Found the below thread on "Wood Web"
