Do-It-Yourself Bandsaw Sawmill
Long-time FARM SHOW readers are familiar with Bill Reeks of Cromwell, Ky., creator of do-it-yourself bandsaw mills. He built his first sawmill in 1994 for less than $100, using recycled materials and a salvaged engine. Since FARM SHOW first featured that sawmill in 1995, he's sent out nearly 10,000 packets of information to interested sawmillers and figures that more than half of those went on to build their own mills.
  Bill is "notorious" for his ultra-personal customer service. His "packets" of information contain hundreds of photos and detailed information. And Bill is always available to help anyone who "gets stuck" along the way.
  For 17 pages of introductory details on Reek's two bandsaw mills, plans, books, videos, etc., send $3 (In Canada, send $4 in U.S. cash or U.S. money order). Complete plans for his most popular Yellow-Jak-It sawmill sell for $51, postage included ($54 U.S. funds for Canadian orders). "I'm not in this for the money. Anyone is welcome to stop by my place and take pictures and measurements of my mills and I'll gladly help them get started," he says.
