Sawmill Parts
« on: June 05, 2003, 03:54:03 AM »
I'm Thinking of building another Band Sawmill. Anybody have any good sources for parts for Band Sawmills ?
Hydraulics, log sets, electric motors Clutches, ect.
I'd like to find a quiet replacement muffler for a 20 hp vanguard motor.

Can't really hep ya, cause, we build our own. Put in 2 baffles. One has holes, t'other has top and bottom edges cut off. We use 5" tubing, .065 wall and 1 1/8" conduit for the pipe.

Cooks have a lot of parts listed on thier site and even if you don't see it there they will be glad to track it down for you.  Thier prices are great too.  they will even sell any of the parts they fab for thier mills.  I just ordered thier compleat guide system from them yesterday.  I got both quides the hydraulic cylinder that moves the guide and the square tubeing lined with teflon wear plates that the guide slides in and out in.  total price $500.  I can,t build it my self for that price.

Thanks for the replies!! ;) I was thinking of building an electric mill . I already have some 19" band wheels and shafts. I really think somebody must make alittle quieter muffler for a vanguard 20hp briggs motor. I was also thinking ahead to when the clutch on it starts to slip somebody must make a repair kit or sell some sort of shoes for it. Maybe I'm wrong but I think I can make more money building a mill than sawing lumber !

About the only place we can get a wheel that size locally is at an industrial pump warehouse.  Try www.cookssaw,com they sell parts like that over the counter if you can't find some from a company that you usually deal with.

   Try www.grainger.com. They have a 19" pulley with tapered bushing. Around $100.00 for the pulley, alone.

  • Best way to make the most money with a portable mill is to cut the least lumber you can.

Russ.
Cooks best for B/S specific stuff + if you need it modified they can-do.
Other parts,,didn't see Surplus Center(.com also) get mentioned yet  1-800-488-3407(.com also) .

Electric mill,,yea man, more pwr and quiet  Genset (PTO?) and elec edger (genset is also good for home power outages)

Band wheels can you go a little larger for improved blade life?  If it fits what the heck!
