New Panther mills starting to head into fresh territory...

Recommended Posts

We are starting to push into new territory with the Panther mills.

 

This is a vid of where we are looking to go. You make x3 to x4 cuts without removing the mill from the log. This means coming back down the log on the pushing side of the bar... not been done before I don't think! It actually worked very well - the only issue is to stop the chainsaw bouncing around on the deeper cut...

 

Also we have a vertical version that will run on the same rails. The rails in this vid are the widended rails needed to support the longer 60" mill..

 

We have Panther 36" mills for sale - the other versions are currently out of stock for a bit https://www.chainsawbars.co.uk/product-category/panther-chainsaw-mills/

Hmm this is really nice I saw this vid before but didn't even notice you don't put the mill down ever, guess I wasn't paying attention...!

Is that cross brace fro connecting the mill to the 1st cut system available, what is holding the two together? Are there some kind of wheels mounted on the cross brace or is it just some parallel connectors in the aluminum profile of the cross brace?

I saw this before buying my mill but totally forgot about it :D

Take a look at this Rob, was thinking about using these wheels for the function:

But it is only for 10mm slots so the mill is too small for that, but I am sure you could adapt it, make some kind of bushing for the screw that hold the wheel (goes through the wheel and screws into the T nut)

 

EDIT: could be used on a vertical mill on the 1st cut system too

It's tricky and we still have not nailed down how we are going to make sure the mill 'grips' the first cut system.

 

I have not used the Oregon 27RX like this but it should make a huge improvement to the chainsaw bouncing.

 

My way worked but was crude... we already have the parts in place for the vertical mill we are doing - but at the moment we are more wanting to get some more Panthers sold and out there before we make the next step.

 

Soonish I need to go to Loglogic and spend a day milling with them to nail down how we do the vertical mill. I have a working model but there are several tweaks needed before it can go into production.
