Cutting Timber with Rail Mill ~ Page 3 of 3 ~

After cutting one side of the log, reverse the chainsaw mill without shifting the rail to complete a parallel cut on the opposite side. After preparing two sides, roll the log so one side faces up and remount the rail.

With the rail now re-mounted, complete a ‘cleanup’ cut on the new side then adjust the mill guide to produce planks of required thickness. An accurately sharpened chainsaw will produce straight timber planks of consistent thickness.

With the rail mounted close to the edge of the log, the log can be fully sawn into plank thickness by re-setting the mill guide for each new section.

Planks can be sawn into accurate sections by stacking planks up against the milled face of the log, with the rail still mounted to the log.
