Sawmill Plans Procedure # 9

Cut 4 pieces of 6" x 1/4" flat steel 6" long for the feet. Cut 4 pieces of 1" x 1/4" flat steel 6" long for the ground cleats and cut 4 pieces of 2" x 2" x 1/8" box 24" long for the legs.

(Note: You may use any flat steel for feet and ground cleats but concerning the legs - the absolute minimum to use would be 1 1/2" x 1 1/2" x 1/8" if you are only cutting for yourself occasionally. The stabilizer holder would have to be sized accordingly. See previous page. Legs do not have to fit box perfectly, some slack is O.K.)

On the 4 pieces of 6" x 6" x 1/4" flat steel, weld the 4 peices of 1" x 1/4" flat steel 6" long on edge across the 6" x 6" feet on center, creating 4 pieces as in diagram. Slide the 2" x 2" x 1/8" box 24" long into each corner stabilizer down to the ground. Weld flat face of the 4 - 6" x 6" feet with ground cleat to the bottom of the 2" x 2" 24" long legs, with cleat facing down, center feet on bottom of leg and use weight of leg to hold to the ground. Face ground cleat across the mill side to side. Install plate over top of all 4 legs or drill hole in base of legs to let out water. Raise legs to full up position, then drill holes through leg above stabilizers to install bolt for mill transport. Some lock bolts have come loose during transport and ripped off legs.

Warning: Do not weld feet to legs out of the mill stabilizers. Fit legs into stabilizer holders first, then weld feet, or you will have to lift the mill up high to install legs.
