TIPS 12 Essential Things to Know When Choosing Your First Sawmill

If you don’t have a sawmill yet, and you’re thinking about an entry-level model but also need to be as economical as possible, it just makes sense to be educated about what to look for.

That’s why you should definitely watch this video today:

12-Essential Things To Know When Choosing Your First Sawmill

Sadly, there are far too many companies out there passing off inferior quality, especially when it comes to entry-level mills.

We just don’t think that’s right. And we also know, it doesn’t have to be that way.

So, we asked one of our most trusted sawyers, Dave Boyt, to cover this for you in this video.

Dave’s been milling for at least 40-years…maybe longer! And he knows sawmills and all things logs and lumber like nobody’s business.

Dave is going to go through 12 essential points of quality you must understand before you choose your first entry-level sawmill.

We think you’re going to find it extremely helpful, and quite possibly eye-opening too.

Head on over, and take a look.

And remember, the very first point to make sure of is this one…

Quality Point #1: The mill should be fun and easy to use!

Yep, it really is all about enjoying yourself with your sawmill—not having to fight it, or worry about whether or not it’s actually going to cut some beautiful lumber for you.

Dave’s got much more to share, plus he’s just a fun guy to learn from, as you will see.
