the project is to reverse engineer this sawmill.
[url removed, login to view]
we would like the mill to have the following specs
max log length is 6m,
max log diameter approx 80cm, twin blades with overall cut of 60cm.
for this prototype we would like to avoid using any hydraulics to simplfy the design and build. Manual raise and lower of the blades, electric winch to drag the blades through the log, omit the log lifter, omit the two small cant blades for edging boards, also use manual log clamping and turning mechanism.
