Latest video:
This video shows the process of resetting the band sawmill guide rollers to a true level so the blade doesn't start climbing or diving in the log as a result of crooked alignment of the blade, so basically how to set up a band saw. I built this mill myself so it might differ from the ones that are available on the market. Watch the sawmill build series HERE:

Are you going to paint the entire unit? You put allot of work into it, painting would make it stay nice. Every time I make something I paint it now. In the past I always regretted it when I didn't.

Had a bunch of experience on a Band Saw system at work. We leveled the blade off of the arm that held the guides. I machined a special Square that had the corner notched to go around the juncture of parts. If the blade was not square off of the support, the guides needed replacing. I tried leveling with a machinist square ONE TIME... That exercise would have made Ghandi Curse!

Nice machine! Thanks for sharing. I like how you designed and built it...simple, strong, reliable. I've seen your other videos of you using it. It appears to cut very well.

Great video, and to all worried about his paint,take a look at a$40,000 woodmizer mill in a few years, you'd think with a price tag like that perhaps a good paint could be applied,they look like old garbage in no time the way their paint fades away. So in the end,if the mill is cutting proper, the paint doesn't mean a whole lot
mountainman320 5 місяців tagasi
Ya,with woodmizer anyway, I don't know about other brand Mills paint, can you imagine if vehicles has such poor quality paint jobs like a woodmizer mill. LoL. And I have a woodmizer,so I'm also knocking something I own.

Donn, how are your blade guides holding up? I have diy mill that I just use radial ball bearings for blade guides, and the one close to the cooling oil drip does not hold up well. To that I'm thinking of building them like yous! Like others have said; love your build, and for the cost, I have $1500 in mine plus labor. It cuts 36 inch by 21.5 foot log. Of course some of the material was free; band wheals that retail for $475 I got for $113, plus discount on other parts from a friend of a friend at whole sale price; HaHa! Have fun with your tools and talent!

The blade guides hold up well. I'm not a daily sawmill user and I don't earn my living that way, it's just something to keep in mind. But since I can grease the bearings that are inside the rollers I have no bearing premature wear problem. I usually grease the rollers after every use which packs the inside of the roller full of grease so it can withstand rain better - that is until I get it under the roof. The bearings are conserved better that way between uses and the drip water for blade cooling doesn't seem to have an effect on'em whatsoever.

Hi, Donn. You have the best sawmill videos (by far) on youtube. I really like the design and it looks really strong. I would like to build one of these myself. Have you drawn up the plans yet. I would like to have a set. If not maybe you"ll give us the trailer dimensions and material sizes with wall thickness of the steel.

Sorry, no plans yet. But since so many people have asked for it I might draw them up eventually. Can't promise anything though. I'm lazy. :D

Good design at the beginning makes for easy adjustability later. 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻 If only it was that warm in the middle of November.

I really like the way you pay attention to precision. Makes everything go a little easier in the long run it saves so much time too. You're a quality craftsman Donn, keep up the good work and the great videos. Thanks for sharing.

Nice land mark hat, did you get that when you were in Australia?
Donn DIY
Donn DIY 2 aastat tagasi
Yup, the Australian sun is harsh, burnt my neck, earlobes and my nose at some point. Using a hat like that or even bigger is a must as you already know in Australia. :D

I'm glad to see you are doing ok over there, I was wondering how things were going for you two. I ran into a friend of mine here in town the other day who also watches your videos. He is wanting to build a furnace for melting metal and was talking about using bricks for lining it to help hold the heat in and I was telling him how you did yours, that's how I found out he and his wife both watch your videos. You guys take care.

@Donn DIY I'll tell him the next time I see him, I think he was going to use a 55 gallon barrel for the outside of it but I don't remember for sure, that would make it larger than yours I think.
Donn DIY
Donn DIY 2 aastat tagasi
Cool, man! I'm glad the videos actually influence people around the world. And I hope only in a good way. I say thank you to you and your friend & wife. I might suggest he makes the furnace bigger than the one I built. Makes it easier to melt bigger pieces of aluminium so you don't have to worry about chopping the material up that much.

I bet all those comments make you regret not painting the sawmill when the weather was warm :D
Donn DIY
Donn DIY 2 aastat tagasi
No. I don't regret it. I just find it funny reading the comments where people think the mill is gonna degrade in such a short period of time into a heap of rust. :D

Do you have any plans on protecting the steel structure of your sawmill by way of painting or otherwise ? Nova Scotia. Canada

Yes, I will paint the mill in the Spring of 2019, May perhaps, then we have sufficient amount of warm sunny days already.
