You can buy mill hogs off ebay cheap That should last for a while.
That should be great for a home made unit.

I suspect you could pick up a Morbark Debarker at a sawmill auction far cheaper than you could ever build one. I know from years of experience, that a log debarker is the most abused piece of equipment in a mill operation. They take a terrible beating. Its not something you can just throw together.  Remember, every single log is different from the next. large, small, crooked, hard, soft, bark comes off like chips or it comes off like binder twine.  I know far more people that have been hurt by a debarker than a sawmill. That is another consideration.

X2! I've maintained 2 types a Morbark and a Cambio ring type. They are by far the most abused, and highest maintenance piece of equipment on a sawmill yard. Bark disposal makes sawdust removal look like a minor problem. One log makes a pile of bark twice the size of the sawdust that comes from the same log. You are disposing of all the bark from a log. You are trying to make as small amount of sawdust as possible.
