WILSON!: Is the angle iron supported by a concrete base? How do you keep all of the extensions flat?
Jon Shelton: been thinking of buying one of these mills myself just cant really make up my mind yet i know the stuff harbor frieght sells isnt built to last a lifetime,read a lot of good comments about it though but still seems confused if i should or not
Rod Halverson: Thanks for the reply. I called Cooks and let them know what I had. They were very helpful and told me how to fill out the order form, so I got the right blades. I did the same, 10 blades for $150; what a great deal.
HowToDanny: hey man they called me when i order and they asked just to make sure it would fit i got the 10 blades for 150 dollars deal there good people
Rod Halverson: Hello, can you let us know which blade you ordered from Cooks Saws? I looked at their web site and I couldn't find a listing for HF for Pittsburg Machine.
Rod Halverson: I think I got the last one. I ordered it in March 2013 and had two back orders to delay. I got it late August. I was looking here for set up ideas. I'm going to try and set it up in the next week or two, before the weather changes, but I may be too late for that. Oh well, I can work in the rain if needed. I will record the set and the first cuttings and post them when ready.
DannysCam: i just saved up enough for it and now they stopped selling it lol
Ryan Jeffries: Does HF still sell them? i can't find it on the website.
Lifeonthenation: concrete block foundation about 18" to top of tracks above grade yes leve is best I think its easy to push. I have it dead center of a cantilevered shed roof . All you need is room to walk beside it I use some old log ramps from an old Frick 00 saw mill.. as far as suggestions I need to secure mine in with concrete. Turning large logs knocks my track off true.
i had the steal from an old electrical tower that matched HF's tracks Check out woodland mills Chanel it looks the same good tips
Allen Carney: I ordered one March 30th, I just got an email that said Sept.
gordowolff: I just got mine from harbor freight, took about 3 months because it was backordered. It was on sale for 1695 and II found a 20% off on the internet so I think it ended up being around 1550. with shipping. Thee truck had no lift gate so I used my excavator and chains to unload it. Do you think you could post some close up video of the work you did on yours?
Lifeonthenation: I waited almost 6 months it's worth it saved a ton of money the. I ordered cooks saw blades to replace the cheap blade that comes with it dulled fast . 144" x 1 1/4
Darrel Hall: How long did you have to wait to get your sawmill? I ordered one Easter day and they told me it won't be here until November.
Living Social: I got a groupon from Miami and almost got tricked. The description was way off for that the deal they were offering. I found groupon reviews that several people had the same issue. Luckily Groupon honor a refund, but my time was wasted.
