Latest video:
Installing new alloy wheels on my homemade mobile band sawmill to replace the old spoke wheels that were quite wobbly and eccentric. These aluminium rims allow also for more blade tension and thus more accurate cuts. This undertaking wasn't just a bolt-on deal, I had to turn adapters/inserts to custom fit the bearings I already use on the mill into the new alloy wheels so I didn't have to change anything else. It worked out surprisingly well despite my previous thoughts and fears. Also later when I adjusted the guide rollers I noticed they pointed up a little - it was maybe due to the derailment of the saw carriage a month ago. Nothing was bent, just the slack was taken out of some things. I adjusted the rollers and it has a new blade on it now so it should make near perfect cuts from now on. One more thing that got done was the stupid height adjustment hand crank system that only allowed me to cut material with 30 mm increment. I modified a hand winch to replace it and now every click on the winch equals to 1 mm. So I can cut material down to 1 mm in thickness. Theoretically. :D Thanks for watching and stay tuned for future videos. Cheers!

So what about the paint? Most of the material I used for this mill was kept outside in the rain and snow years before turning it into a mill and nothing happened. Hell, the material I made the blade guards out of has been outside under a tree for over three decades - still in usable condition. What I'm trying to say is I'm not gonna paint it at the moment - it's too cold here for the paint to cure and too wet to even apply it. This mill is not gonna turn into a heap of rust within the next 6 months - that's when I'm planning on painting it eventually - May 2019. It's not gonna turn into a heap of rust even within the next 6 years so no worries, people!

I'm in the making of a sawmill. When it comes to the motor/belt reduction. Whats more important? Go fast? Go strong?

There's info on blade speed on the Internet. There's a sweet spot. Both speed and torque matter.

Why is everybody saying paint it? I like this rusty look tbh and makes it even more clear its self made. If it would look new with paint it would look like u bought the thing and didn't make it urself..

My family was in logging business for 150 years it makes me happy to see your home made saw mill in operation. You have done a fine job. Thank you for posting.

But what about the balancing of the tires this time? As a machinist for 55 years, love seeing how an early lathe still works. Much thanks from a now a CNC owner / operator.

I wish to open mouth and put in foot. You know what they say, paint won't pull the plow!! Well with those upgrades you should be a force to be reckoned with. I would advise a carpenters apron or something to keep shit tail out of stuff but with over a million viewers, What can I add that you haven't thought of. Your overworking your poor brain with worry and yet over a million viewers you are not going to be told what to do. I'm so proud of you young man

For those crying about the paint, can you say Rat Rod saw mill. Some people would use it as is. ( including me) My question was why the wheel swap, but that was pointed out. A great thanks for building it from a few folks in the USA.

Before you put paint on the iron work, paint it with ferric chloride. This will convert the rust into a nonferrous skin, saves you removing the rust, except the loose stuff, and stops further rust.

The spoke wheels were eccentric to the hub and made the blade vibrate. This mod took care of it. The blade is steady now.

Ok nice, but, why?
Donn DIY
Donn DIY 2 aastat tagasi
The main reason for this mod was the eccentric properties of the spoke wheels of the USSR made IZ Jupiter motorcycle which made the blade vibrate and undulate. Also they had some flex in them - I could hear the spokes squeak. This mod took care of those problems.

How bad is the wear on the back portion of the blade guides, since with just the flat surface they are rubbing so much against the back of the blade? or for that matter is it wearing down the back of the blade?

As others have commented, you should really paint it or give it some kind of rust protection.

I see you upgraded the coolant toothbrush too! Will be interested to see how well the new wheels perform. One objection to using tires I've heard is that you can never get enough tension because of the air pressure in the tires isn't enough to offset things. The new wheels will take out spoke give but will still leave tire give. You haven't mentioned that issue before so I am assuming that it's no problem. Thanks again for posting. You are always an inspriation.

But aren't those bearings and shafts too small for a sawmill?
Mike festiva
Mike festiva 2 aastat tagasi
impossible 9 I built a bandsaw mill using motorcycle wheels and swing arms welded together, I have been running it for about 4 years now and it’s been fine. I have replaced the the wheel bearings once, but the ones that went out where stock and installed sometime back in the early 80s. The wheel bearings are cheap and even if you had to replace them once a year you would get far more lumber milled in that year then the $20 it would cost in bearings. Take care. Ps Good job on your mill! It’s awesome being able to cut your own lumber :)
Donn DIY
Donn DIY 2 aastat tagasi
No. It has worked so far. Maybe they'll wear out quicker and I'll have to replace them more but it's no problem.

As usual great job!! I’m still very impressed with your mechanical skills. I’ve read some of other comments and didn’t see any trolls cry about driving the bearings in with a hammer and a socket. I say “ hell yes! Drive them bitches home!!! You ain’t got all day dicking with a press!! “ As a tip for you, I’ve found it much more comfortable to use a socket driver extension hit the extension and the force is spread evenly across the socket face or back. Instead of hitting the socket itself and causing the bearing to start crookedly in the hole. Have a great day.

a gallon or two of paint cant cost that much.

Looks great Donn. I hope the “new” wheels make an improvement. The winch certainly should. 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻 It is funny how “Hey Donn. You put the wheel on backwards.” becomes “You triggered my OCD.” No wonder the world is messed up. 90% of the people think they have OCD because a backwards wheel “triggered” them. 😂🤣
