Lumber Smith sawmill
« on: June 06, 2021, 12:57:44 AM »
Hello everyone, 

First post, but have been lurking for awhile. This forum is a wonderful source of information! I just bought a gently used Lumber Smith portable mill. My project is a walk-in cabin in north Georgia, so I was looking for the lightest mill I could find.

As far as I can determine, Lumber Smith is out of business. Does anyone have tips for working with this mill. Does anyone have an owner’s manual you could share. Advice most welcome!

Cooks Saw on the left makes blades for any mill.  You need to measure your current blade to get a size, but they probably know what length it takes.  Saw a video on U tube of a guy sawing with one of those mills, probably works OK.  But all mills need sharp blades.
Most everything I enjoy doing turns out to be work

Hi jdrakephd

Decided to check out this manual and save it. Low and behold, I already have a folder for Lumber Smith and have a manual there for the Bantam 26. It's a different manual than this one and shows great set-up photos. If this one would be of any use to you, I can send it your way or upload it on the forum here if there's a place for manuals.

Yes! Please send (and/or post to thread as an attachment). I'd like to compare the differences. Also interested if you have any other information about this mill or the company.
