New Toy Tested with good results

Got the home made chainsaw mill tested and painted and the resulting finish on the milled timber is better than expected!!

That's a cracking looking mill, great job. Do you know what it cost you in materials?

With the steel, bearings and sprockets etc about 600 quid so not too bad! Spent a few hours on it and tested it before painting and had to change a couple of bits but all in all a nice shed project for the winter!!

That's pretty good. Any chance of a picture of the height adjustment mechanism on top if it's not too much bother.
