Sorry for the late reply... have been away from the forum for a while.  Just take off the movable guide (just takes a minute).  I've cut oak, sycamore, and honeylocust slabs 32" wide with absolutely no problem!  The blade somehow always stays on the bandwheel, though I make sure I have a sharp blade and don't push it hard.  Here's a video of how I do it.  The only change is that I have found it faster and easier to remove the blade guide, rather than swing it up out of the way.

Coast Steve, I have the EZ Boardwalk 40 with 8 ft. Ext. Main deck will cut up to 16 ft. I have mine set up for portable use with leveling jacks. We built a 24 x 24  enclosed horse barn with only 5 trees. They were 30 to 36" 10 to 16' long. Sawmill isn't light weight trust me. I have pics of mill in gallery.

How do you like your EZ boardwalk ? I was leaning towards buying a swingblade mill but I like the look of the EZ. How long do you get out of a blade before you need to change it ?

I went with the manual Hudson 52. It cost way too muchwith the Canadian dollar being really bad.
Add the shipping from NY to BC, duties, and taxes ....well you know what I mean.

Bu it's here now and looks pretty decent.
 
I'm in the middle of making a big strong deck for it now.
I'll post pics when the deck is done.

That's funny you would buy a mill from NY and ship it to BC. I've been looking at mills made in BC and want to ship them to NJ.


I went with the manual Hudson 52. It cost way too much, with the Canadian dollar being [I have typed a profane word that is automatically changed by the forum censored words program I should know better] and the shipping from NY to BC. Add duties, and taxes ....You know what I mean.
