    I just checked there site and could not find the June show. I'll have to give them a call, usually it's around the 1st or 2nd week????
    I realize they are all REAL close, but on eBay one finds hudonsledgesalvage and I haven't been able to find a Hud-son salvage on the web other than Hudsons Salvage, LLC which is a discount store chain based in Mississippi.

    I think it's a family run business that has several off-shoots. The primarly business is Bandsaw Mills, with a branch that sells parts from a Snowmobile 'bone-yard'! ~Scotty

    Just for curiosity's sake I looked on Craigslist and Ebay and found several bandsaw mills for sale. I might pick up one at a much cheaper price over new to use with my Tree cutting business

    Man I would love to have a BS mill.
    I have some nice Blue Atlas Cedar logs sitting here waiting to be made into something cool.

    I do have a chain saw mill attachment for my 30" Stihl. I haven't tried it yet though. I was going to rip one up this spring to see how well it works. A BS would be clearly superior though and a lot easier to use. The chain saw mill looks like a pain.

    Has anyone tried the Alaska chain saw mill?

    Made and used my one{AM} for a short time, it got the job done but wasn't all that great. Switched over to a small band mill, 8.5hp 28"X 18+' long, it's a HUGE difference and kind of fun. Not so much waste faster and easier cutting.

    Well kind of an update.
    They have apparently DISCONTINUED the Oscar 18 and renamed it the Oscar 121 (the pic even shows an 18) and the price is $2,795. About what the 18 was but it now has a 10hp engine.

    bandmills, sawmills, portable sawmill, sawmill wood processing


    But they have INTRODUCED the Oscar 118 which at first glance seems to meet the specs of the HF sawmill for $2,195, vs the HF price of $2,299.

    Of course there will probably be some people calling it cheap chinese crap anyways. I think it's thrifty Yankee ingenuity.

    Now if they could only fix it so I could use my Stihl 660, a 7HP power head.

    /edit - wonder what it would take to adapt it to electric.
    Their Hud-Son mills come with a 2 yr warranty.

    and via email - for $2,395 they will sell it with a 5hp electric motor

    Yes it does exist

    I purchased one for 1799.00- 20% coupon total cost 1557.00 out of pocket.

    This has 7 hp 20" x 12' max board cut. I cut 3-5 logs weekly mostly cedar. This is good mill for the money. One note you can add track to cut longer logs. 22" dia is max so it does not real effect me.

    The main thing with any tool is keeping it fine tuned and clean and level in this case.

    the robin motor starts very easy and runs clean. The blade sucks I ordered new ones the day I got it. It is build well 5/16 steel tracks and a good locking system. the track comes in 2 pieces so I mounted it on the set of pallet rack rail and added wheels at one end to move it into workshop when not being used. It has no loader so a used the pallet rack and a winch to load from my truck and trailer. I will post the setup if anyone would like to see it.

    I look at many other for the money this is the brst buy. in the 2000-3500 price range.

    I started with chain saw mill for 140.00 northern tool plus a 30" chain saw. the saw cost me more that my truck lol. I now have bs mill . the time, waste, and noise are just some of the things I don't miss.
