You guys make a good point about the wheels. What if I were to take from Wandel’s designs and make new, wider 14” wheels, reusing the bearings from the existing ones? I don’t want to use thinner blades for fear of overheating the thinner material. I will be using the the saw from really thick (8-12+ inches) stock and logs.
Is there any particular disadvantage to using a gas emgine rather than electric motor?
