We can show you how!
These are more than just plans, these are step by step instructions that walk you through the build!
How would you like to save a bundle of money on your lumber costs?
4 Stroke Engine or Chainsaw Powerhead!
~you can cut all the lumber you want including large timbers that are really expensive.
~you can cut frame lumber, trim lumber, cabinet lumber, & project lumber.
~if you own timberland use those logs laying around on the ground to make lumber.
~you can make a part time income selling lumber cut from free logs.
With your own sawmill.....
With these sawmill plans & a few parts that are available locally, you can have your own chainsaw mill or 4 stroke engine sawmill capable of cutting the lumber you need.
Just basic welding & building skills are necessary. If you already have a ladder & a chainsaw or 4 stroke engine, then just build the mill and your off and running. No ladder? No problem, because you can build your own track from steel components or just pick up a cheap, used ladder at a garage sale. What I love about this mill is that it takes a very small investment, it can be built for under $175 using your chainsaw powerhead or $400 using a new 4 stroke engine (or buy a used lawnmower & transfer the engine & save even more money!). I wanted the mill to save me a lot of money in lumber costs with little out of pocket. If you don't have a welder, a cheap way to get the mill built is to cut the parts yourself, which can be done with a circular saw & a circular saw steel cutting wheel and find a part-time welder to do the welding.
