started sawmill build
« on: April 07, 2013, 10:09:17 PM »
Hi Folks, well I finally start to build the sawmill carriage last weekend. Got the saw frame welded up. I hope to start on the carriage tomorrow if all goes well. We got about 8 inches of snow today. I am planning on making it a 2 post design with a boat winch to lift the saw frame. I have a 10 hp electric 3 phase motor. The bandwheels came off and old King 18 inch bandsaw.Hope fully it will be finished soon.

I see the pictures in your gallery,try this,


I like to go to whatever post or start a new topic first to include a picture.Go to your gallery,it will open in a new window.Click onto your album,than click onto whatever picture you want,it will get bigger,than scroll down a little to find,Insert Image In Post,click onto that,click Yes and that is it. Some have to copy/paste the link to work.I like to hit the enter key at least once or twice to move the picture down away from what I am typing. The enter key really helps to leave some white space if posting more than one picture. Somewheres I think it says to add 10,000 to your user number or something like that to make a clickable icon to your gallery under your user name. Use the preview button to see how it looks and modify it if needed.
