Red,
It just so happens I am going to see a gentleman on March 3 who has been very successful sawing with Kasco saws.  If there are any specific questions you would like me to ask on your behalf please send them to me.

solidwoods, the only thing flawed around here is most of our senses of humor.  :)  

Please don't take us to serious. This board is a might different then anything out there. We like to mix our thirst for knowledge with a taste of humor. Sometimes we fail miserably like Harold just did but all in all you will find we are for the most part good guys.

We really do welcome you even though Tom didn't tell us you were coming. ;D  

KIDDING!!! :D

Jim,

Don't pay any attention to any of them------I don't know why they can't ever be serious.  Be patient with them cause it is a pretty fair forum if you can put up with the dumbness.   ::)

Noble :P

Tom Who? :D

Welcome, Solidwood. You didn't do nuthin wrong. It was just a little funny when you said, "Tom from the WoodWeb."  I think the only reason he goes there is to pick out the best posters, and drag them over here. :D     We do have fun, here, as well as tending to business, and sometimes we poke each other in the ribs a bit.  Read through some of the threads, and you'll see what I mean.

Red,

The gentleman I went to see actually distributes Kasco saws.  Her uses and sells the IIB mostly.  He says the power return saves him a lot of time because he can off load boards during the return.  He thought the IIA was a totally manual mill.
He has not made any mods to his sawmill.
BTW this guy has built a thriving and lucrative business around his Kasco.  I believe the biggest reason for his success is his business savvy and willingness to bust his but for his customers.  He would be successful with any mill.
I hope this information is useful to you.  If you would like the phone number of his store send me a PM.

thanks for the wealth of info
but i was lookin for someone that has actually RUN one ;D
can someone tell me how to put up pics?
thanks
I bought a early model KASCO sawmill  30 plus years ago and it is still running  strong. Its a model KS-2410.  uses a 127 inch 1 1/4  .035 blade powered by a  briggs 8HP  engine.  I also  got a  blade sharpener and  setting tool and a 4 foot  track extension  so i can  easily  cut 16 foot  logs.  for cutting  long logs I have a kasco movable  adjustable  support to place under center of lg  when it wants  to  sag  as i  saw  boards.

I bought a Kasco saw 30+ years ago, just before they  came out  with a bigger  unit. Mine is very simple in that  the log is placed on the  two log stands  that raise/lower the log  since  the  saw band is at a fixed height. This saw came  with a  sharpener  that runs on 110 volts  ( book says it can also  sharpen   chain saw  chains, which I never tried since i have a nice  floor standing  chain sharpener. My saw also came with the  hand operated  tooth setter and I also have  the Kasco adjustable stand  to place under middle off  log/boards  to prevent  any  sag  on long  logs/boards. This is a very  well built heavy  duty completely hand operated unit in that it takes  about  14 lbs of pull  to  move it thru logs  such as  24 inch  diameter  red oak.I did modify the  driven wheel  shaft by addition  of keyway slot  and keyway.  This saw has had  hundreds of all types of  logs   run thru it over the years,and paid for itself many  times over..
