This mill performs admirably. Today I slabbed the base of a large birch tree, resulting in about 20 perfectly smooth pieces. I'm using a 24-inch bar. The slabs are exceptionally smooth.
This saw mill works perfectly; I mounted it on my 36" table saw and chopped a 32" redwood plank into two 2" planks in about 15 minutes.
This is a fantastic hobbyist sawmill. It produces excellent lumber if you use a ripping chain and a good straight rail for the initial cut.
It's simple to put together. It works nicely once everything is set and dialed in. Well-made. Recommend.
