Corinth portable sawmill- “Sawmobile”
« on: September 07, 2019, 01:02:20 PM »
Looking for information, photos and advice on this mill. I’ve looked everywhere online and can’t seem to find information on these mills.

  About 5 months ago I came into my grandfather old sawmill that I had been after for awhile. I’m trying to get it back into running usable shape. I myself have been around sawmills my whole life just never really ran one up until recently. I grew up watching my grandfather run a meadows portable and would work summers behind it stacking and driving the loader. He got out of sawing around 2011. I bought a woodmizer lt-15 new in 2016 trying to get back into it the family tradition. As much as I like my band mill I wanted a circle mill as that was what I had seen growing up. Long story short my grandfather had sold one of his sawmobiles to his friend and he kept running it up until the middle of 2018, he had bought a less whore out mill. I was able to bring the old mill home and I’m now trying to fix it up. I wasn’t really around when he ran it. was wondering if anyone still ran these old mills as I haven’t been able to find any information on them. I’ll attach some photos as soon as I figure out how to properly use the forum.

Thanks

That looks pretty much like a Jackson mill.  I run one of those for many years, and it was a portable automatic.  They made portable hand mills back in the '50s.

Used to be a sawmill manufacturer in Corinth Mississippi.   Bet it was made there.  The old building was tore down several years ago.  Corinth is about 20 miles west of me.  There is still a manufacturer in Corinth but I dont think it is the same people.  I buy my banding from them

Thanks for the welcome and the photos, looks a lot like my mill. Been trying to figure out how to upload my photos but I can’t seem to. Is there a secret button somewhere? I’m using a iPhone to post.

That’s a popular question.  :)

Down at the bottom of the last forum you’ll find “how to post photos”. It’s very helpful. There is a little learning curve. 

I find it a little more difficult from the iPhone. It’s easier to see what you’re doing on a desktop or an iPad. 

It’s probably better to switch from the mobile site to the full site on your phone for posting pictures. 

It’s really not that bad, it’s just a learning curve. You’ll figure it out.  8)

I believe I’ve figured out the photos. I’ve attached a couple photos of my mill. It’s a work in progress.

Progress!

Some file types are not acceptable, but the main ones are. 

Just another hint before you get scolded: links are not allowed. You need to put the picture in your post.

That's a dandy! I can't for the life of me see how it works, but it looks well maintained. Can't wait to see what you can do with it.

When we made our portable stationary, we put it on a concrete slab.  Way easier than blocking and you didn't have to worry about wet conditions.  We also had outriggers for support.

Nice mill and powered right, GM Detroit diesel, looks like a 671 " Big Bertha". Loved to open up the side cylinder covers and look inside.
