Timbery Sawmill
« on: December 23, 2010, 01:18:54 pm »
Hey gang,

I am in the market for a portable sawmill to use just as a bit of a hobby.  I am looking for a bandmill with at least a 13hp gas motor on it.  So far I really like the Woodmizer and the Norwood, but very recently I saw a mill made by Timbery.  Does anyone have any info on this mill?

 they look a little expensive for what you get. are they close to you? i have never heard of a subaru motor on a mill. i really dont like those blade guides either. roller guides are better in my opinion.
if a manual mill is in your future, look at ez boardwalk's jr model. heavier frame, 13 hp honda motor,for $3600 last i checked. although i am sure shipping is a concern for you, i am certian that can be overcame. look at them under ez boardwalk's icon in the column on the left of this page. happy looking. pc

I just got home from EZ boardwalk's shop a few hours ago. I know he has a very slightly used (4.9hrs) jr. model on hand. He said is Jr. mill business has been excellent this year. I traded mine back in on the larger 40 size after only sawing a few logs. The mill sat in my yard a few weeks and logs and work started showing up. So before I used it much, I just traded up to the bigger one. Call him and he will put a brochure in the mail immediatly.

Just a few miles south of I-70 around the Boonville area, which is 20-30 miles west of Columbia. I think I have sawed about 500 bft of lumber in my life and am already on my second mill. It is 125 miles to his place from here, but all good driving. This is alot more mill than I had. But I really liked the jr. size as well.

Hello! Just thought i'd throw my two cents in here. The fellow that makes the timbery line of equipment is located about 20 minutes from me. Although i don't know him very well , I did manage to have a brief conversation with him at the forestry show.He is also the local norwood dealer,and if I understand correctly he worked for norwood previously and helped design the norwood products. He is a very smart fellow that knows the manual mill market and equipment inside and out.

    Although I own a norwood and do not know much about the timbery sawmill, I have looked at the edgers and log loaders that he builds and was very impressed. I would suggest a phone call to him .......  Take care.

edit: P.S google eastern compact equipment . This is the same place that makes the timbery i believe, but they have a different website for timbery.

ed is 5 hours or more from me. i am just in the ne corner of ok. maybe i will just take off for a day sometime and go visit with him, but from what i understand ed dont have a lot of spare time during harvest or planting season. he is real helpful when you do have a mill problem. made in usa should mean something and i can say with certianty that the ez boardwalk is a good mill with good people who stand behind it.  pc

That's a whole bunch of good info fellas....thank you.  I will check out EZ Boardwalks website.  When I finally decide on and purchase a bandmill, can any of you tell me which blade sharpener and setter to purchase?

oh boy,
you just opened a big can of worms there.

if i had it to do over, i would build a dual tooth setter out of a bench vise.  as sharpeners go you can find sharpeners that cost more than half of many mills. the kind of shaperner you buy is up to you but most wont tell 1 important thing. blades wont last forever no matter what kind of sharpener you use on them.
i like the sharpener i purchased from ez boardwalk and it cost less than $500. it only sharpens the face of the tooth though. i get 6 to 8 sharpenings out of a band and usually i throw it away or it breaks. pc

I have just purchased a 280 timbery mill with the 20.5 hp motor. I pick it up in about 2 wks. I hope to be able to give some positive feedback in 2 wks and a day. My father has a generator which has the Subaru Robyn motor. The last 2 yrs in the mtns of WV has resulted in a lot of power outages. One power outage was 16 days the other was 10. It ran 24/7 and would run several hrs longer than mine on the same amount of gas. So I have high hopes for my mill.

Wilson, welcome to the Forum.  Lots of good information here.  I've run a Norwood MX34 (my 3rd sawmill) for nearly two years. It is a good, solid machine, and great folks to deal with (a real person answers the phone).  They've just upgraded both of their mills.  Definitely worth a look.  Let us know what you decide.  What sort of wood will you be cutting.. size, species, final product?

Barnyard51, welcome! I look forward to seeing posts about your mill, as well.

OK, been following you guys for some time and finally decided to join the forum.  I have own my own tree business (trimming and removal) and just recently bought a used Lumbermate 24 to get my feet wet. I really like it and it makes good lumber but is really a lightweight machine and has it's place.  Ok, as for the topic at hand, I went to the Paul Bunyan show in Cambridge Ohio today and made aquaintance with Timbery sawmills, spoke to the reps and ran there bigger trailer mounted mill.  Take all the short comings of the Norwood mx 34 and improve them.   After looking at all the mills and running the majority of them,  I really would have spent my money on the Timbery, even over the woodmizer LT28.
I enjoyed everything about it and the reps really explained the why's very well.  I told my partner that I could see myself owning one and upgrading with-in a year.  I must say though, that was my choice of the mills I saw but I am really interested in the Cook's mill, those guys know there stuff and would love to pick their brains.  I know this is my first post but you guys will be seeing alot more of me now that I'm registered.  Timbery if definately a mill to take a closer look at if your in the market.

All the lumber that was chipped, cut, split or otherwise will be auctioned off on Sunday at 2:00 o'clock.  The proceeds were going to be donated to a charity but I don't remember what charity they said.  I have to say, If your interested in anything to do with logging, milling, cutting, hauling or moving of wood, the show is a fantastic wealth of information. It was about a 2 hour drive for me but was well worth it and my guys loved it to. Kinda adds a little spark to them and gives em' a boost.
