Anyone using Timber Wolf Blades on their HM 126?
« on: October 29, 2014, 04:42:53 PM »
Hey guys,

Got some woodmaster c blades with my HM126. Can't say that I am overly impressed. I know I am new to milling, but not new to power tools and outdoor equipment. Any way, I am considering getting some Timber Wolf bands to try, has anyone with the HM 126 giving them a try? Any feedback would be appreciated.
Thanks, Robert

the timberwolf i have on my mill cuts like butter. just starting to learn sawyering with my mill too and have only cut three 10 - 12'' logs. i saw a you tube video where a guy was not impressed with a new blade he had just put on his mill and you could see where he had the teeth pointing in the wrong direction so he needed to turn the band ''inside out''.  i haven't done that yet but i do know that i'm not impressed with the way my chainsaw cuts when i put the chain on backwards. just a thought.  jayg
i thought i was wrong once but i wasn't.   atv, log arch, chainsaw and ez boardwalk jr.

Hey guys, thanks for the input. thecfarm, sorry about that log stop. Good to know they cut like butter. I plan on getting a 10 pack and give them a run.

jaygtree, yes my chainsaw doesn't do well when I put the chain on backwards either. I've done that a few times, usually when I'm in a hurry.

My problem with the woodmaster bands are they haven't sharpened well and they break after about 8 hours of cutting. I've read some other complaints that are similar.
Thanks, Robert

New to sawing. And advice on how to keep my hm122 tracker would be great. Ruined 5 brand new blades that never touched wood.

Itís been a while since this post. Iím guessing you figured it out or sold the mill. I got my lil HM 122 in today and busted 3 new blades. Lost teeth on all. I finally figured it out but need new blades. Whatís the best option??  Not worried about the best quality. I do cut hardwoods, and sometimes really dry stuff, so any suggestions would be considered. Thanks.

I have the HM 126 and just put on a new timberwolf blade. I had the blade sling off after the first cut that broke a tooth. I put it back on and adjusted the tracking, but it came off again. checked the tension on the blade and tried again, with the same result. So I put the old blade on and it came off.. After much deliberation I went to get another new blade without wearing gloves and discovered my problem. They ship the new blades with oil on them.. I cleaned the blades and belts and wheels with denatured alcohol.. The mill ran like a dream and i really like the timberwolf blades so far... Rookie mistake
