In addition, I melted parafin from a candle onto the timber, so the cutting guide is sliding like a bobsleigh.
I do not trust 3 pressure screws to securely clamp the chain bar, so I simply cut off the external part of the U clamp; drilled 2 holes in the chain bar and fastened the cutting guide to the chain bar via 2 dia 6 mm screws and Nylstop nuts. Thanks to this simple modification, I am safe that the chainsaw will not escape under vibrations and hit the guide.
Chain bar is hardened steel, so it is not easy to drill 6 mm holes in this metal. I had to shapen the drilling bits 2 times per hole, but result is safe. In addition, it makes it easier to remove the chain for electric grinder sharpening.
First, for cutting beams where you can do a proper lay out and screw a guide board to your work piece, this little attachment has far exceeded my expectations. It holds some pretty reasonable tolerances for as simple as it is (the guide board is usually the cause of any variability).
Second, it's much faster to setup than the Granberg sawmill, and leaves the saw usable for other cuts (squaring off an end, removing a piece of a limb, etc). It's also much lighter and simpler (fewer things to come loose or adjust).
Third, the Granberg consumes major portions of the chainsaw bar for attachment (i.e a 20" bar will barely have 14" of usable cutting length by the time you get it secured, and that's if you remove the felling dogs). This Timber Tuff mill consumes about 3" of the bar nearest the power head, leaving the rest (including the tip) for cutting. These extra few inches are very noticeable.
Fourth, there is only one type of cut that this attachment cannot easily do, and that's planking cuts less than the width of a 2x4. The Granberg excels in that regard, but this little guy wins in all other scenarios. The description (and simple instructions) indicate using a 2x6, though it will also adjust down with the hardware to ride along smaller boards. I haven't tried anything less than a 2x4 for tolerance reasons.
Finally, as should be obvious, the Timber Tuff mill costs about 90% less than the Granberg. If you're cutting large timbers, this thing will pay for itself with the first one.
