Anybody know anything about Tru-Cut Sawmills and surfacers? I just heard of them today and viewed some videos on YouTube.  Apparently Amish built and wide capacities, 70" and 96".

I spent half a day in their booth at the Paul Bunyon show.  Their surfacer was extremely well made.

The sawmills are crafted well, but IMO a little light duty for production work.  Band wheel size is fairly small (28" as I recall), and the depth of cut is not great for quartering.  Motor HP is low for the width of cut too, which makes the production speed a little low.

Nicely built though. If you don't need high production speed, it's a good choice to consider.
