Home-Built Bandsaw Mill

I'm sending along a photo of the bandsaw mill I built in my spare time. The mill is all hydraulic and is run from a farm tractor pto. Requires a minimum 35 to 40 hp. This mill has a built-in edger that edges logs as they're cut off the log. The mill also has a log turner. It'll handle logs up to 24 ft.
This would be a good mill for a few farmers to go together on since it is fully portable and will work on any farm tractor with a pto. I would consider custom-building them. The price would range from $14,000 to $18,000, depending on features. (Israel Brubacher, Box 18, Mine Centre, Ontario POW 1HO Canada ph & fax 807 599-2269)
