    My shooting buddy asked me if I could help take down a couple dead Ash trees at his landlords place. I said sure, When I got there we walked around back to get a closer look at the trees, I saw an old tractor under a bunch of vines, and going over to look at it, tripped on something under more vines. It was a set of green angle iron tracks. Turned out to be a small band mill. I think it might be one of the old Harbour Freight mills. Anybody know who uses green paint on their mills?

    I checked out Ben's, his is a Woodland. The one I saw yesterday is light green and matches the two Harbour Freight mills on youtube. Wish it was a Woodland.

    Yes the Harbor Freight sawmills were/are green, I know someone that has one and the bed is green and I think the wheel cover is green.
