I wish I would have bought the HM 130. I’m enjoying how easy it is to slab logs with the bandsaw .

This is my first mill and I love it. The purchasing, delivery and set up was easy and strait forward. Easy to follow assembly manual and help from WL when I had questions. It took me a little bit to get nice lumber but that was operator errors not the mill itself. Now I have more then paid it off with the lumber it has produced. Three things I wish I did different. 1. Built a heavy platform for the track the first Time. 2. Bought the one on the trailer. 3. Bought this mill years ago. There is something satisfying about making your own lumber, can’t explain it but you will see!!! Thanks WL for the great product, I will enjoy this years to come👍 James.

HM122- I took the entire shipping package to a mountain cabin project in the bed of a pickup. I assembled it myself in about 4 hours. I followed the instructions and everything went together fine. I would suggest adding a note about squaring up and leveling before fully tightening up. I re-routed the water hose because it was kinking through the handle hole. No instructions on how to use the crank handle index holes. Very happy with the saw.

It is a great saw, I’ve wanted one for many years and finally got one, I wasn’t disappointed, Very easy to set up. The saw is very true and consistent on its cuts, I have been milling old growth long leaf pine which is very dense and the saw cut through it with no issues.

This sawmill is incredible. Having loads of fun with it, even though i can't get two days in a row to use it in the Midwest this year. Too much rain. I am cutting oak, maple and poplar trees I had cut down about a year ago. This HM122 saw is very accurate. I just finished cutting an oak log this morning. Mostly 1/2 inch, 3/4 and 1 inch boards for craft projects. My neighbors thought I was crazy when I told them I was going to get a saw to cut all of those logs into boards. They are really impressed, as am I. For fun today i cut some veneers. I made one pass as thin as I thought I could get it. I have not measured the thickness, but it was so thin I could barely lift it in one piece after the cut.

Just got this up a week or so ago and cut only a few logs so all of the points are on initial setup and first impressions. The Mill is seems well design with a lot of smaller touches that will make things easier to use. Setup was involved but straightforward. A lot of bolting together and tweaking to get it all running right but it is all explained. Some points learned - - The manual is in a plastic container that is bolted to the cutting head assembly, a nice touch. Did not know this though when starting and did the track assembly with no manual, resulting in some mistakes and re-work. Went on line for the manual when working on head unit. Was not until it was almost complete, when the head unit was mounted on the rails that I found the manual. Would be helpful to know right away. - There was a video review of the Mill that mentioned how the head unit had no hard stop and could drift up and down when cutting and the mechanism for holding the motor was weak. Happy to say both items were addressed. There is a slotted wheel with a spring loaded pin to hold the unit. Clap looks solid and seems to be an upgrade from what was in the video. - Used concrete blocks and 2 x 8 to act as a base. Works OK but planning a concrete pad. All the separate, movable bits works and is quick but is fiddly. - Make sure to follow the manual on final setup around tracking and guide adjustments etc. I was impatient to get cutting and assumed it was adjusted out of the gate and ended up with the blade jumping off and getting damaged. Had spares so was able to get going but it cost a blade. - Takes about a full day to get it all setup and going. I did it over a few days - created base, bolted up track, mounted head unit and then adjusted on separate days after work. - You can put this together without the use of a heavy lift system but the shipping container needs to be near where it will be installed. Once the head unit is assembled, it needs to be rolled on small metal track wheels into position then levered onto the track. Plywood or other temp surface is needed as it will not roll in dirt. Tractor or other lift system makes it a lot easier. Rest seemed to go as expected. Once the track is leveled up, a long ladder helps getting this right, it cuts nice and straight. A lot of dogs and clamps on the tack for holding the logs in place is very helpful. Worked with another mill that had just one. Counting the ones that came with the track extension, this has 5 for 16 feet.
