This is part 1 of 2 in this first video I show the process of cutting a sawmill in half then bolting it back together to be able to cut at stock width of 28’’ then be able to extend to give a full width cut of 46’‘

Paul, this is very interesting. It reminds me of the good old days in our moulding plant. We were always rigging up something or other. What you are doing will make a lot of difference in your work. Nice work.

Interesting adaption. The alumium didn’t mess up the carbine bits? Did you research whether you would get corrosive effects? When using aluminum for roofing it is recommended that aluminum nails be used to reduce the corrosive effect.

Hope this project works out for you.

Wow, quite impressive modification. Best of luck with the extended operation, hope it works to your satisfaction. I’ll be looking for the next video.

Holy Cow Paul! You have a lot more courage than I have! I really hope this works. Don’t think I could ever work up the courage to do this to my WoodMizer. But it will be very cool if it works as planned.
