    I stumbles across this fella while on a social visit through the week and it could be mine. Does anyone know any pros/cons. Most importantly is it complete?

    I've never seen a Westford before. It's built not unlike a Granberg Alaskan mill, except the vertical clamps are a little beefier.

    Add an auxilary oiler and it should be ready to go to work.

    Westford mills are made in Kelmscott in Western Australia (about 10 miles from my place).

    see Westford Chainsaw Mills

    Westford make a range of rail and alaskan style mills and show one of the most un-ergonomic pictures of using an Alaskan in their website I have ever seen!

    see Slabbing Mill - oh my aching back!!!!

    I have made a few cuts with a Westford (but my BIL mill makes the Westford feel like a model-T )
    They are strong basic mill and if you can get it for the right price it will be well worth getting.
    Your mill looks complete in the pictures you show.
