Buck,

I have a complete M-14 and most, if not all, the parts of a second one. Both have 52 inch blades, so you will need some serious HP to spin them. I might consider selling one. I will send you an e-mail to the address on your profile.

Welcome Buck,I'am not trying to bad mouth Belsaw but they are the minimum mill that can cut a log, anything simpler would be a chainsaw and roller skates.All over this country there are older handset circular mills laying fallow,heavy duty mills,that can be had for the same or less than Belsaw.Find A sawyer in your area he'll know where the mills are in the woods.I live back east in a yupee stroon field and could have walked to a couple of unused mills from my house.Frank C.

I am just looking for a simple sawmill right now, and affordable. my family used to run a sawmill up by lake Winnebegosh in Minnesota.  They had a larger mill, but heavy snow pushed the roof in on it last winter, and they sold the mill this spring.  Just looking to start small right now.  Thanks again for any info

where you at buck sawyer?    i just bought my belsaw about a month ago, not sellin it, but i could show you mine if you find one thats in parts so you know whats missing/ or to expect.  not all belsaws have the live feed set..   mine was used for one log only, 42 in blade, 2 dog carrage , full auto feed, paints faded, but the carrage has no scrached off paint.   The carrage on this mill is very light/ made out of thin metal,  and with buddy on one end, me other,   one can flex it alot...  i already know that when i redo the wood rails mine came with, it has to be dead on, not only to make good lumber,  but a 1/4 in out, it will
bind up.     I paid 1500 for mine , and only thing broken is the saw guide ( measure stick) i think its missing a spring or wire.  I wouldnt pay much more than that for one with a wood deck. , steel deck... not shure for $  but i have seen them go for around 3k .
