Alaskan Saw Mills
An Alaskan saw mill turns a chainsaw into an inexpensive lumber making machine allowing you to make your own valuable, smooth, and ready to use dimensioned lumber.
If you are a wood worker, an Alaskan saw mill allows you to collect and mill unique lumber. Cuts can be made to maximize the beauty of a wood's color, grain, or some other desirable characteristic. Bowl turners can select and cut blanks just for use on a lathe. Instrument makers can select and mill special woods for sound boards or other special uses. The possibilities are endless. If you occasionally have a need for special milling, an Alaskan saw mill is a handy tool to have.
If you are a cabin builder or need lumber in a remote location, an Alaskan saw mill can provide it. Many cabins in wilderness areas owe their existence to an Alaskan saw mill. Trees can be milled where they fall, to almost any thickness from half and inch up to thirteen inches. Single cuts can have widths up to fifty-four inches in any length desired. Special beams of any length can be milled -- all you need is a long enough log.
The Alaskan saw mill is a an attachment that clamps onto a chainsaw's guide bar. The sizes listed below are measured with the mill at its widest setting. Each mill easily adjusts to accommodate shorter bar lengths, but they do not extend beyond the size listed.

Accessories for Alaskan Saw Mills
An auxiliary oiler kit is helpful when running a long bar in dry wood. This tank is supported on the mill post. Gravity feeds the extra oil to the end of the bar through a special fitting that is included.

Helper Handle - With Or Without Roller
A helper handle with a roller is used on a double-end bar in place of one powerhead. It attaches to the bar in the mounting groove.
The helper handle without a roller is for use on a conventional bar that has its own tip. Holes must be drilled to mount the handle on the bar.

Slabbing rails are used to guide the first cut. Extra brackets are available for extra-long slabbing rails.
