I have both a 36" alaskan MKIII mill and the mini-mill that I operate with a modified Husqvarna 394XP. I use Bailey's ripping chain, and 32" and 20" oregon sproketnose bars, along with a 42" hardnose bar for the really big stuff. In addition to the Chainsaw mills, I own a BetterBuilt Ripsaw, a chainsaw powered portable bandsaw, which can process a 14" cant. I bought the mini-mill to square up cants before milling; I thought it would be easier to use the mini-mill with a guide plank for the initial cut.

Turns out, except on smaller logs, say under 15", it is very difficult to keep a perfectly straight cut. With short logs, it works great; also works great for cutting giant logs in half up the middle, where the alaskan can't open up wide enough. BUT!, long bars are difficult to keep perfectly perpendicular to the guide plank, and want to turn inwards; you end up with a wavy cut, even with a very steady hand. Also, be prepared to eat dust with this one. It works best when positioned upside down, which aims the sawdust right at your face. Wear good sealed-face goggles and a respirator unless you like a lung full of sawdust and saw exhaust.

I used this guide together with a McCulloch MS1640CC 16" 15-Amp/4-HP Electric Chain Saw to cut some 10" Maple logs

into boards of 1-2" thickness.

It worked beautifully. I did not have any issues with the shield vibrating or coming loose. It is a great money saver if you

are a woodworker and come across some (smaller) logs from time

to time.

Verified Purchase
Ok, so I ordered this to do what you'd do this product. It was late getting to me because of the snow/cold storm in the Midwest. After finally getting it, I was super excited to use it.

I looked at the instruction to see how it is mounted ( the saw to the guide and the rails to the 2x6) and attempted to do so and use it. In short somewhat of a failure. Here is why. Although after reading you may still want this product if youve got the right equipment. If you do, then I would rate it 4star.

Ok. It comes in a box with the metal guide rails wich is (6) 2 foot log segments. You will need a 2x6x(6,8,10, or 12) foot depending on how you want to configure the rails. A 2x4 will not work as the guide that attched to the saw is about 1/4inch wider then a 2x4. Since they are separate peices you will need to place them on a straight 2x6, and unless you have a rough cut the rounded corner way prevent it from being perfectly stright. However that's not nesesery, you may just need to lift the guide up a hair if you hit a missaligned rail. It also comes with double headed nails I guess to nail you 2x6 to your log. I don't recomend it. I went and bought 4 and 5 inch screws to make it simpler.

Now here is the problem, it does "not" work with "all" saws up to 24". After much frustration and about ready to smash it into peices on my driveway and a messed up bar, I go a return call from Granberg International.

One thing that was not in the description which everyone must be aware of. There is a minimum width requirement. That's right your bar must be at least 2-1/2 inches in width. My saw will not accept a bar width greater than 2-1/8 inch making this product unusable. Your with needs to be 2-1/2 inches or wider her is why.
