Woodland mills
« on: April 01, 2016, 11:16:16 PM »
hello,

I'm a new member and looking for some mill advice. I'm looking a woodland mills.

My use would be primarily re sawing recycled timbers into planks. They are mostly 8"x8" heart pine lots of resin but beautiful wood.

Would the woodland mills do that? This is not in a production mode but a pretty heavily used home shop.

Would anybody have a better suggestion in that price range?

Thanks!

Chuck Fox

Cobblestone Construction, I just want to welcome you to the forum.
Some on here have sawed old timbers. There is a trick to doing it. Besides "trying" to remove ALL the nails.  ;D

Welcome to the Forestry Forum Cobblestone Construction, and there are plenty of Woodland Mills owners here.  The problem that you will have sawing those timbers will not be sawmill related, but resin.  Your challenge will be to keep the blade wet with Diesel or whatever to prevent a buildup on the blade.

Welcome to the forum. you'll find a lot of good information and help here. 

I have the HM126 and have been happy with it and the company.  It's a good saw for the money.  It's hard to know how it compares to other saws in it's class without using all of them.  The company has provided excellent support, but I've only had a couple small issues which they took care of quickly with no fuss.  All of the bearings, belts, and things that wear out are standard parts and can be sourced from local suppliers. 

You might find that 7 degree blades work better on the old pine.  I had a lot of 100 year old long leaf pine and it was hard stuff.  Like Magicman said, the resin will be a big bother but it is manageable. 

Be aware that once you start sawing you might get hooked.  Sawdust is highly addictive.

I agree with the others. That little mill is going to do the job as well as anything else in that price range, and for your purpose, probably match some more expensive machines as well.

Problems that you will have are going to be common on any mill. Sawing dry wood, pitch build up, foreign objects, material handling etc. That comes down to blade choice, blade lube and maintenance, a good metal detector and things like roller tables for material handling. Not insurmountable problems, but things to consider.

Welcome to the Forestry Forum Cobblestone Construction. I am just about 1/2 hour from Rochester. I have a Hudson HFE-21, but  with the drive belt setup you have to be careful about what lube you use to cut the pitch so I don't think it would work in your application. Last week I saw a resaw listed on the Rochester Craigslist. :)
