Seeking woodmizer sawyer
« on: December 03, 2013, 06:22:27 am »

I have 40 or so hardwood logs cleared for a building.  I need 6x6, 4x6, 4x3 timbers for a post and beam project.

Looking to hire a sawyer with woodmizer or other portable mill to saw this lumber on site in Upper Valley.

I sent the link to a friend who does some milling and isn't terribly far from you. I think he uses an Alaska-style chainsaw mill.

Thanks for pointing me here KB.


Not sure that my chainsaw mill is the best tool for the job.

I mostly make 2" or less slabs and then I can rip them to width with a circular saw. To make the 90 degree angle cut to square the 6 x 6's he wants is challenging. I can do it but not as elegantly as on a bandsaw mill.

Also being he is working with hardwood it would be slow going and have to resharpen my chain fairly often.

Thanks for the replies everybody.  I don't think a chainsaw mill will handle this job.  FWIW, I just ordered a Hud-Son homesteader band mill, so I'll probably get this project out of the way myself.
