The rainy days ended so I unloaded and started unpacked the sawmill.

More work in the morning.

Looks like a mighty fine job.
On those logs stops. Mine go straight up and down too. I put 4-6-8 inch marks on mine. 4 is really 3½ inches and 6 is really 5½ inches and so on. Really comes in handy when I put the flitches on. This way if I am cutting 6 inches I can put the log stop at 6 and know I have a ½ inch to clear it.
Happy Sawing!!!!

Got the head built and set on the track.

It's hot. I've been working in the morning and shutting down around 1pm. My clothes are soaking wet with sweat and I'm not working that hard. 

But what do you expect when it's 100F with humidity...

Looking good.  I can almost smell fresh sawdust. 

I’m noticing a little problem with your timbers though. (You probably already noticed it . . ). The timbers are interfering with your backstops going down all the way. Will also interfere with your dogs on a large log. Looks like an easy fix though. (There’s always a wrinkle or two to iron out at the beginning.)

I noticed that. I can scoot the rails over or something.

Unfortunately I have to tune up an irrigation engine when parts arrive in the morning. It'll probably be noon by the time I get everything done...

Made some sawdust!

It was just a small log to test everything out. A honey locust that blew down in the pasture near the house.

I recently got the same mill.  I ordered two extensions making my total length 23 feet. Longer than the trailer I mounted the thing on 😡   but it works with proper blocking and leveling.  Good luck with your mill.  Mine has been a pleasure to run and a learning experience for sure.   I've mostly cut white oak ad Eastern red cedar.  Did some high line poles for a bridge.

10 ft of track is already getting to me. I'm ready to gather materials and build track.

I've only seen a few types of portable bandsaw mills. Woodmizer, woodland mills, and a few homemade. I'd like more ideas to choose from.

Can you post a pic of your track showing the track, bunks,log holding, etc.
