My new sawmill build
« on: February 07, 2018, 08:40:54 PM »
I'm getting ready to start my new sawmill build. I've been wearing out youtube and this forum, gathering plenty of info. I am copying most of Joshs (mazdathumps) build. Don't think he would mind. I am going with 18.75 wheels from surplus center and the h style taper lock bushings, they are (keyed.) I have read on here that keylsee are better . I was also debating on an idler tension pulley or centrifugal clutch . But the extreme duty clutches I've found are only rated up to 13hp and I plan on using an18 hp. was wondering about giving it a try anyway or would it be a waste. Has anyone on here tried this combo before.
When I ask the same question more than once please excuse me since I suffer from (CRS)

Luck with the build. I will enjoy seeing the pics.

E-bay has 18 hp centrifugal clutches for $100.00.
24 hp for $280.00
I can't see why a keyless hub would be better than one with a key.

Thanks everyone for the replies and help. I'm learning my way around on here. By the way I will be using 1-5/16 axle shaft out of the head drive for a continuous miner. I think they should hold up pretty well. I would say that I am not the first to use axles for this.

I was referring to the shafts for my 18.75 blade wheels. (Just to clarify my previous post)
