Lucas Mill or part of one anyway.

Recommended Posts

Been offered this Mill. Obviously missing the frame though. He’s looking for offers. Anyone any idea what a fair offer would be and if the frame is available?

Well, bought it for £200 today. 🤣 It’s the baby 6-13 so must be quite old but the Honda GX390 must be worth £200 anyway. So worth a punt.

Do you have the blade cover?  Well worth a punt at that price, assuming it can be got to work.  The tracks etc will cost a lot unless you get lucky.  You could get something made up but that won't be cheap either.

Yeh, that’s there. 
 

It runs fine and what’s there all seems to work. I’ve contacted woodfuel for a price on a new set of rails. I expect they’ll be £2-3k

Ah cool.  Try Fuelwood also for the rails.  It might be worth asking if anyone on here has a set of rails for sale.  Never know, someone may have a usable set where the engine has given up the ghost.

 

By the way, is it just the rails that are missing, or the whole mechanism to mount and adjust the rails?

Everything is missing apart from what’s in the pics. So I don’t expect it to be cheap. 
 

Sorry, I meant fuelwood. 
 

I think I actually seen a post a while back looking for rails. Maybe the guy I bought it off. 😁

Yeah, I suspect the rest of the mill will be £6000 or more new plus VAT.  The rails will be at least £1000 each.  Anyway, I don't mean to be negative, there are other ways to achieve the same result.
