  " FL Dh.  Don't worry about me, I like all mills and mill design.  Just some more than others ". Have I missed something, Jim???

 Munksforsager has NO re-sharp program. Will you be able to sharpen them??? Have you seen their gullet shape??? It looks a little like WM. I will have 6 to send you, in the beginning. I will order more, if these work out. That will give us extras.

Solidwood,
I agree with you about the band wheels, you have a lot more problems to over come with inflatable tires. The biggest problems are: Vibration caused by rim or tire being out of balance, Tire not being round causing blade whip, keeping air pressure correct causes tracking problems, not enought crown for tracking. Tires do work, but I think it would be easier to sell a mill with steel wheels and it would increase its value.

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

Fl Dh.

I'll check to see if I can get a cam to grind Munk/ blades.

Wiam.
I use all kinds of tires.  But not on my mill (Kasco).  I think using tires for mill wheels is using them too far from there designed purpose.  If you prototype it to find just the right type of inflatable tire (like thin not thick, extra thick sidewall for those broken band teeth cuts,  non corrosive rim, a balancing system that won't change because a lead weight flew off) a safe and reliable wheel could be made (and is) but if you are an amateur builder making a mill, an off the shelf, solid wheel is a much better "design/build/make it work right without having a frustration stroke" choice.
