I saw a mine blocking mill in Storm Mountain WVa. let me tell you that guy could not have been morethan 24" from the blade whilest operating it.  :o An old Frick. He had a "new" Woodland bandmill there that he thought was too slow, he liked the circle mill.

   I think the blocking mill is technicaly called a "bolter" saw. The carriage straddles the saw ,40 in inserted tooth. Has a flip over thingy for sawing wedges n half headers.
   I'm sure I can find shanks n bits for both saws, was dark in the barn, n couldn't tell exactly wht style n size they were.

We have two Hoe saws dating from when grandad bought the mill on 1936. Both are "3 pattern ". No problem getting bits and shanks from simons.
I love Farming, Logging, Sawmilling, Fishing, and Hunting.

DanG! that is a mighty fine price for a mill even if it requires some TLC and set up!  I think I may have found an M14 in fairly neglected condition, that I hope I will be able to get for a good price. only 20 miles from home.  Will stay tuned to see the pictures of your setup.
