Alex, what does the old boy want for it.?? If the saw is useable and the mill is complete no engine I would say between $500 and $1000 theirs not a huge demand for old hand set mill around here now. Frank C.
Actually is a young woman, she wants $700, I have no clue if the saw is good, but the mill seems to be complete, no engine,

If the saw isn't useable, what would the price be?  That sounds like a decent price, since it's all steel.  I would also see if there are any parts laying around, like wrenches, bits, etc.  Seems like there might have been another headblock at the rear of the carriage.
Never under estimate the power of stupid people in large groups.

I think 700 would be a good price if it is complete with the dogs ect. there will be no sourcing carrige parts if they are not there. just remember that when you go to move it will turn into a pile of parts and setup will be more than the price of the mill. plus finding a power unit.

looks like a pretty good find
happy hunting

My Lane mills had Chase parts on them as both mills were pretty much interchangeable . These mills will easily saw 500 bf per hour , handset mills are all based on how much manpower you can throw at them . Looks to be all intact on the carriage , even the Sawyers Favorite looks to be complete . No pics of the feed works , so not sure of the shape of that . With a steel carriage $700.00 dollars is a steal . The saw should be fine if it wasn't baked in the sun . If I was in the market for a handset mill , I'd grab this in a heart beat .

Did you guys notice the home made setup to set the far taper.?? As Bill says most Chase and Lane parts can be made to work. Seems to me both brands screw dogs are the same and all I use for 90% of my dogging, like them so much I have two on my carriage. Alex if you can power it diesel, big gasoline engines will eat you out of house and home. Now if you have three phase power that's another story. Frank C.

what is the set far taper? no clue!    would a RPC work? and a 25 HP motor would be enough?
also maybe this idea is crazy but how about using the carriege as a base to build a band saw mill?

25 hp would be no where near enough. In my opinion, it would be a crying shame to take what looks to be a very restorable mill and try and make a Frankenstein out of it.

The Chase 100 head blocks I have at least one of those laying around and perhaps some parts for them. My mill has ones made by page belting so the #100 is not needed by me. I am only one state away.

You right it would be a shame.

Alex, if you look at the picture of the end of your carriage you will see the #100 headblock with a linkage arrangement hooked to a shaft, just above the pinion. That is so the sawyer can move the taper out to compensate for tree taper without walking to the end of the carriage. Clever but not standard on that mill. Frank C.

If undamaged, the head saw is worth $500.  Regards, Clark
