Oak ties

Does any one know where I could find a sawmill that cuts untreated oak wooden ties that would also end plate them?

Most any sawmill that cuts ties will sell you an untreated tie.  Ties are treated at treatment plants, not sawmills.  The current endplating is like the rafter plates that are pressed on.  You can buy them at Home Depot. 
Never under estimate the power of stupid people in large groups.

Location is big here.  What is the use for them and what kinda quantity?  If you can use an IG tie the treatment plants seem to always be looking for a market for those.  And I bet theyd sell you the cull ties as well.
Boy, back in my day..
