In this hopefully second-to-last episode of the homemade portable band sawmill build series I'm turning the jackshaft for the transmission to gear down the rpm from the petrol engine and electrical motor so the band wheel turns around 600 rpm as a result. Also finishing up the blade guards and mounts, and adding blade coolant / lube jugs. Everything is recycled or "temporarily borrowed" from other projects or from the scrap heap. Check it out! Thanks for watching!

9:41. When the hell did the word aluminum get an extra I put in it. It's Al-oom-I-num not Al-oo-min-E-um. I have been hearing this "alumunium" version of the word aluminum all over the place and it is annoying. It's like one person said it on the internet and now everybody seems to have adopted this way of saying a word that does not exist. It's things like this along with stuff like the No Child Left Behind program in our school systems nowadays, that are making our youth Dumber by the generation. Please people learn proper English and the proper way to enunciate words and don't try to embellish on or change the way things are in order to make them sound more scientific or cool. People don't sound cool or smart when you do this, it makes you sound stupid. Now I'm sure with the capabilities of being able to build a project like the one you're building here, you're not stupid. So quit being like the "sheeple" in today's society and please speak English the way it is phonetically to be heard.

Your a credit to your generation. If you are poor then it is by your own hand to be so cause anyone with this talent could surely be a millrite. Millerites make very good money or pretty much name their wage when they can do all the things your capable of. I know now this is not your only build of machine or help. I wish I could pack your water

Donn, I may have missed something so could you explain the reason behind the electric motor? I doubt very seriously anyone could buy a better mill. Good Job!

Electric motor will be the primary power source when the sawmill gets under the roof. Petrol engine will be for mobile use.

Donn You should not weld without protective lenses. Even if you turn you head away, UV reflects of the surroundings, but you cant see it. However, it will still damage the retinas in your eyes. I worked as a fabrication welder, building industrial lifts, and my eyes got the UV itch, from other peoples welding reflecting back into my eyes. I did some stick welding, many years ago, and, being a hot summer, took off my shirt. I got some nasty UV burn on my stomach, but definitely no tan, just blistering. Welding UV is nasty stuff!

I will use it first and then paint it on the sawdust. :D I will actually use it first since I want to work out the bugs which it probably will have or has already that I don't know of. I will add and remove parts, cut and weld some more and then clean it all up and paint it. In the future. :D

I'm not sure if by that time cutting trees from the forest and milling them on the sawmill is allowed here in Europe. :D So this sawmill will end up in a landfill or in scrap metal melted down for skeletons of A.I. probably. :D

I Love watching this baby come together !!!! You are an Amazing Fabricator... I love the metal surplus in the field... I know what that's all about when I was Building My air powered Punkin Chunker - ( Chunk'n-ology ) That material is truly needed for a build of this size (although my wife didn't think so... LOL)... You will be cutting Planks in no time now !!!! Again, Awesome Build... Glad I could be here to watch it from the beginning...

What have you done to keep the height after you have raised/lowered the saw head? What are you using to hold it once you have adjusted your height? I have been wanting to change home built saw mill to the way yours is but been trying to figure out how you could keep it from free wheeling. I was thinking of just using the shaft assembly out of a automatic 800lb hand winch without the drum and making that the shaft to turn for raise/lowering. Just add a sprocket onto the shaft instead of it turning the spool drum. Just wanted to ask you how you have done yours.
Donn DIY
Donn DIY 2 aastat tagasi
I will try to cut wood without a saw head locking mechanism at first, I will make a height adjustment system but for the crank handle itself which only supports the saw head from top but doesn't lock it to the carriage. The saw head is really heavy so I don't think it will start floating. If it wants to do that then there's something wrong with blade alignment. I will add the locking mechanism afterwards though.

I really enjoy watching you create and the initiative. we are kind of a like in a few ways I have been cutting my hair for more than 25 years and my life's been about building and creating. I don't build my own tools as I do not need the type of tools you do. Again I really enjoyed your work and I love that shot you gave of the rain coming down and your trees with the little path walkway leading up to your garage I assume. Keep up the good work Boss Donn

Who needs a shaper or a mill? Just weld a bead on to it. I think that should be your official motto! And pulling off those pulleys. I feel for you. One of the most frustrating things I have ever done in my life was try to pull a steering wheel off an old runabout fiberglass boat. I was putting a nice oak dashboard in and putting all new gauges in. Had everything ready but took a weekend to get the dang steering wheel off the steering shaft. I have since learned to buy or make tools to do special projects like this, even if I have to use it once. Still beats a heart attack or a day of cursing and fuming. Learning so much from your build. Getting close.

I spent an entire morning to get that pulley off of that shaft. It was quite frustrating. Thus the big hammer! :D I bet the steering wheel was on there tight due to salty water?

Cheers, man. I'm sure that building this sawmill from the end of January and watching videos of this build since that time one has to be patient. I've done it over a long period of time but I kinda expected that. It's my first rodeo on these subjects, both building a band sawmill and the portability of it. So I'm learning as I do it. New time consuming experience for me.

The belt looks rather short. Are you going to slide the engine to tension it, or use a tensioner pulley?
Donn DIY
Donn DIY 2 aastat tagasi
The belt should be fine, it's not the final belt though. Just found some old one and decided to use it for mock-up. I'm gonna slide the engine and the electric motor to tension the belt.

It’s looking PRET-TY GOOD so far. I had forgotten that you were planning for it to be dual powered. Such a great idea when you are close enough to line voltage and likely a heck of a lot quieter to run on electricity.
Donn DIY
Donn DIY 2 aastat tagasi
I'm gonna run it mostly on electricity when stationed at home, but I think having a petrol engine on it is a good idea too when going straight into the woods for an example to cut some heavy big diameter hardwood that I can't drag or haul with the ATV.
Mark Fryer

Donn I have been meaning to comment about your wetting down your fresh hot welds. It is my understanding that doing so will embrittle the welds increasing the likelihood of premature weld failure. If you need to cool a weld down quickly then blowing compressed air over the weld is the best option apart from letting them cool naturally. Trying to help you, not commenting just to be critical.
mossturn01 2 aastat tagasi
What alloy? This was built out of scrap and mild steel welding wire. What about the cold mig gas blowing into the weld pool? Comment on something you know about, and leave the welding to people who actually do it.
Da Os
Da Os 2 aastat tagasi
any rapid cooling - air or water - of hot welds isn't a great idea if you want to avoid brittleness and distortion. but it does depend on the alloy, more carbon = more risk

I built mine as he did , however it was new steel .Even with buying from Amish welding place (was A LOT cheaper getting steel from them then any other place as much as half the cost a foot plus 10% off that even if I got full sections) steel alone can easily run 500-800 just by itself for just a 4ft wide 6 ft tall 4 post carriage.Now I am including steel for my 20ft log bed also.The new 14hp Kohler engine runs about $500 (you can get new B&S 14hp for 400 too but I wanted Kohler) but as much as 1k depending on the greed of seller.Then the clutch is another 70-100. If you buy the band guide rollers thats another $250. The bearings could really cost depending on which brand/type you buy but there are cheap ones out there. I did not use tires I went with 18.75" band wheel pullies which will set you back at least 150 plus the B56 belts to go on them. So its very easy to sink $1500 into a band saw mill before even getting started building it, but then again when you see the prices of woodmizer/Northern/Cooks.... you really feel accomplished having built it yourself and get to use something you've built.It tends to help much better building it yourself when it comes to adjustments and running it. Dont forget about mix gas too if your using mig welder , that was $26 for each bottle swap out. I think I went through at least one and half bottles and 2 - 11lb spools which were about $30 each.
Donn DIY
Donn DIY 2 aastat tagasi
I haven't calculated the overall cost for the materials yet (I do have all the receipts for the purchases etc) but 1200 $ sounds like a good deal if it's the total cost of the sawmill including both materials and labor, especially when new "brand" sawmills cost a fortune.
