Homemade sawmill. Under $500 invested (dumpster diving not included). Cuts up to 32 inch diameter, 16 foot long. Timberwolf blades. Friend and I were talking about the store bought hobby mills and he said he thought it could be built. He was right. Lots of fun and in one month cut over $3000 in hardwood. Plans to upgrade to larger motor but for now works fine. To date Poplar siding and beams from 30" diameter, Oak 5/4 and beams, walnut 5/4 and Cedar all cut flawlessly. Non drive wheel adjustable so that blade slightly walks against the blades. Biggest touble to date has been a sturdy and true fence and dog setup that quickly changed. This motor works fine but needs to be upgraded. Looses consideralbe power at the slightest dulling on the blade. Shooting for 18 HP.
