    Cutting oversized logs and DIY chainsaw mill

    Hi guys.
    A good few years ago I built this Chainsaw Mill attachment. Since then I have had a continual stream of logs that are slightly too wide for the mill. In the video you can see the simple aluminium t-slot design and construction of the mill as well as my adventures in inventing a technique to mill these 'slightly-too-big' logs into slabs.
