    Looks like a free-hand cut on the end to give a reasonably flat surface as a starting point, adjusting the rails on the rest. Is that so?




    Currently needing longer rails on my Alaskan, as they are my limiting factor... Trying to decide on a size. Double-ended bars need spur drives, plus another expensive couple of chains, on top of an expensive bar, with eBay having GB, with expensive shipping.

    Also, interested in buying a bandsaw mill.

    Not being independently wealthy, I'm trying to get by with what I have spent so far.
    I'm wondering about the limitations of the Granberg mini-mill/ edger. IF used vertically, I wonder how accurate it is. I have one, never used it. I don't have the the guide rail. Thinking a piece of harder wood cut to size would suffice. Seems like its about 1/2x 1/2" angle-aluminum with holes drilled in it...potentially available locally as raw 'angle'.



    I've rolled my big cedar log 90*, so the flat is vertical. Probably a lot to ask with a 32" or 36".
    If it looks like I asked a question, but put a period, it's probably a question.
    Don't know why I'm question-mark challenged online. 😀 New Year's Resolution, better proof reading.

    How did you set up for the cut?

    Just used the mill as is, just went slow.

    Yes on the free hand cut to rest the guide rails.
