Hello, I'm new here but have done lots of searching and not found what I am looking for. I am looking to build a mill to make post and beams out of beetle kill pines on my property. Most of the trees are 14-18" in dia. I have a Stihl 032 with a 20" bar, and am thinking of building my self a 2 in 1 mill. I know its a small saw but its what I have and if this works out then all the more ammunition to convince the wife I need a bigger saw. The plan (in my head so far) is to make a single bar clamp that I can attach from a horizontal (alaskan type) to a vertical (mini mill) quickly. I would like to face the log with the horizontal than switch to the vertical to go about making the next 3 passes to make it square. Horizontal mill would be a copy of Granberg small log mill (single end bar clamp). And for the vertical I am thinking of building a plate similar to a skill saw baseplate, so I don't lose bar length with the guide board under the base. I would incorporate a guide system that ran along side the baseplate to keep the cut straight. Any one have thoughts or suggestions, thanks.
