Information & Pricing
Our thin-kerf portable bandsaw offers an environmentally sensible and financially beneficial option for recovering valuable lumber from trees rather than cutting them into firewood or allowing them to rot. The thin kerf band removes only 1/8th inch of wood with each cut to produce smooth and consistent lumber. We bring the mill to you and you only pay for the actual usable lumber produced. Bringing your logs to our location is also an available option especially if you have small quantities to mill.
LOG SIZE -- we can mill logs up to 20 feet long and 36-inches in diameter. Oversized logs may be split with a chainsaw prior to milling
LUMBER SIZE -- we can produce timbers in excess of 20 x 20 inches and 20 feet long and make boards as thin as 1/8th of an inch thick and everything in between. You imagine it and we will try to make it.
FEES FOR MILLING-
$0.40 per board foot nominal 2x4, 2x6, 4x4, and larger
$0.40 per board foot for 1x4, 1x6, 1x12, etc or smaller
$0.40 per lineal foot for Beveled Siding
Note: Additional charges (or hourly rates) may be required for oversized logs, defective logs, lengths under 8 feet or a quantity of logs under 8" in diameter.$400 minimum charge for milling at remote sites. $50 minimum for milling at our site.
TO PREPARE FOR MILLING LOGS, customers need to cut logs into less than 20 foot lengths as desired and center them on skids in a relatively level location where the saw can pull along side. We place logs on the mill by manually rolling them on the ground and using hydraulic arms lift them onto the mill.
A site visit is customary to discuss details and options prior to milling.
Please prepare a cut list for the sizes, number and types of lumber you want produced.
