Default Re: Portable Band Sawmills

I have a Norwood with a Honda motor. This is a basic machine. It has no hydraulics....everything is manual. With one helper I can do about 1000 board feet a day of boards. More if only cutting beams. I built a 2600 sq. ft log cabin and a 2800 post and beam house with it. Never again!
By the time you pay for everything you would be better off buying the lumber from a production mill. Mine is now a "hobby mill".
