Portable chainsaw mills

Recommended Posts

Hi! I am new to milling. Have just milled one tree :)

Still, milling with alaskan mills is a bit specific. Need good first cut system, also need time to go and do stuff on site.

 

I am looking to do milling at my site. It is a bit specific how to get trees to the site, still, as this is just my hobby then I can mill tree anytime I want (have time).

Saw post while back - 

 

Still have not seen follow up.

 

Have seen Paterson DWS, but those are a bit price and for now a bit out of my price range. Would be able to pay up to 5000 GBP.

 

Have seen also info about home made portable chainsaw mills. http://www.woodweb.com/knowledge_base/HomeBuilt_Portable_Chainsaw_Mill.html

 

Anybody has experience with this kind of stuff? At this time I am ok to invest some small amount to create such a mill (maybe not so portable, but just main fraime and moving part). But as there is so few info about this kind of stuff then can` t understand why?
