Turns out that getting logs to the mill is most of the work. I attempt to do so without draft animals or expensive equipment.

The blade was running too fast so I put a bigger drive wheel on to slow it down and increase torque.

Chainsaw mill, Scrap metal, Adjusting the blade tension, Maintenance of the roller bearings, Water drip lubrication, From tree to chair.

Blade tensioning, Blade guide bearings, First test run.

In order to build a little house on my 5 wooded acres I had to cut a few trees. I thougt it would be great to make them into lumber for the house so I took them to a local sawyer. The work he did was pathetic and motivated me to build my own bandsaw mill.
