Looking for Norwood Sawmill owners in S.C., N.C. GA. and TN that have Hydraulics, Powerfeed and Setworks

I have a Norwood HG36 sawmill and am interested in adding hydraulics, powerfeed and setworks. I live in Northern S.C. and would like to see a mill with these options in action. I am very interested but want to see a mill before I spend the money to add these options. I would be interested in visiting someone in SC,NC, GA or TN and see their mill If it is within a 100 miles of my home. If you would be willing to let me see your mill sawing lumber, please contact me at 864-238-9485 or [email protected]. I will be willing to compensate you for your trouble. Thanks and I look forward to hearing from someone in the near future.

If you reach out to Norwood they should be willing to share a name of someone who gave them permission.. Prior to purchasing my mill I reached to them got a contact person. If you get a chance to view the set-works could you post a few pictures of how they acquire position of the blade. I've watched their videos and can see what looks like a rotary encoder. (wondering on the actual mechanics)

Rick, Thank you for responding. I have reached out to Norwood and hopefully they will find a mill owner that will be willing to let me see the mill in operation. The reason that I put this on the forum was the hope that I might find someone sooner. Thanks, Mendel Stewart

Mendel if you phone them they'll be able to tell you right away who may have one in your area.

I have a friend with a different saw (Timberking), and the setworks runs to the top then the bottom, so it calibrates how far it can cut. Then you can set your measurement from either. I suspect the Norwood does something similar.

Thanks for your post. I actually owned a Timberking B20 a few years ago and it had all hydraulics and computer setworks. It worked good but I sold the mill thinking that I would not use a mill again at my age. However, I did purchase a Norwood HG36 and have not used it at all. I decided recently to saw some logs but would like to add the Hydraulics and etc. I just want to see a Norwood sawing logs with these options before I spent $15,000+ to put on my mill. I purchased my HG36 without seeing one other than in a video but I will not do this again. My first view of a Norwood was about 25 boxes that came to me by way of Motor Freight. I think it is a good sawmill.

I am happy to report that Norwood helped me find a man that has a Hydraulic mill that lives about 50 miles from me. I have contacted him and will be going to see the mill in action. I am excited about this opportunity and will be looking forward to seeing how the hydraulics and set works work.
