Welcome to the Forestry Forum, fishinbill85.  It certainly sounds like Jake is earnest and sincere about addressing and resolving any issues.  That sawmill has some very interesting qualities.

I haven't been on for a while, but I keep going back to the Turbosawmill website and drooling! From everything I've seen, the product and the company are great. If I ever buy a swingmill, Turbosawmill will probably be my first choice. The creative advantages over the old-style swingmills are significant. The monorail by itself should make milling far easier, and I should think, safer.

I haven't seen these in person, but hope to!

Hi Fishinbill,

Thanks for the feedback. Much appreciated. We do have areas we would like to improve. Freight delivery time is one of them. Working on ordering bulk mills now so we can reduce manufacture time to start with. Regarding you're join sag. Yes certainly, remove the 3 inserts oriented the correct way as they would sit in the beam. You can place a weld at the bottom perpendicular centre or place a board under each end and use a mullet to bend the centre down. This will crown your insert which will also crown your beam. I would start out with maybe 3mm crown and see how that goes.

We are keeping with the extruded beams your using with the Ultralight range (chainsaw mills). However significantly increased the strength of the beams supporting the Lightweight and commercial models.

We experience around 3mm sag with the standard length beam when the carriage is at the centre in full length un-joined configuration. I believe that is within our acceptable tolerance.

Would love pictures of your mill in use btw lol.



Wife says I woke up one morning half asleep uttering thin kerf and high production, I think I need a hobby other than milling?

Y'all pray for me, I'm seriously looking into seeing what it would take to obtain one of these mills!
