In this article I will discuss how to make band saw machine with his hands, as well as familiar with the ready-made offers from producers. The presence of such a machine in the private sector will allow to produce boards from logs, and that tangible savings for the family budget.

Making its own

The operating principle of the sawmill belt type is very simple:

  • The log is still fixed to the platformCorresponding to the length of it;
  • The device is supplied thereto, Which is a two-wheel drive, enshrined in the frame and forcing them to move to the wound tape saws. In this case, the cutting blade has a horizontal position, and the distance between the rotating elements of the slightly larger diameter of the treated logs.

In theory, such a device to the machine looks like a simple, but to build it on their own will have to "work hard" and be creative. Therefore, pay heed to the theoretical part before starting to practice.

preparation of materials

Band sawmill at home can be done in various ways. I propose to take the path of least resistance and used instead of wheels, saws and tape engine chainsaw «Husqvarna 395". The power of this unit is 4.9 kW, and the bus length - 90 cm, which is sufficient for the blooming of the logs into planks in domestic scale.

In this case, a rough drawing of the manufactured machine will look like this:

Then, in addition to directly by the chainsaw you will need:

Title appointment
Tubes of various diameters and channels Production of various frame members
Sectional tubes Production of sleepers
corners Making rail
Rollers Ensuring movement of the saw carriage
Profiled tube thanks to the rigidity of the ribs will be able to easily withstand the weight of even logs trohsotkilogrammovyh

preparation tools

With their bare hands to work it is not necessary to look like. You will need:

Title appointment
Svarochnik Compound machine fragments by welding
Electric drill Creating holes in metal
"Bulgarian" Cutting steel products
Wrenches and screwdrivers A tightening of bolts and nuts
Hammer Certainly useful, without it anywhere
Roulette Performing measurements
Bolts and nuts Compound machine fragments
Welding apparatus ensures reliable and durable connections

When using svarochnika do not forget about safety precautions. Particular attention I want to focus on the welding mask. Without it, the welding process can be greatly injure the organs of vision.

Major work on the assembly

I recommend you pick up for construction with an area of ​​not less than eighteen square meters. A roof over your head will allow to convert the logs into boards at any time of year and in any weather.

General Instruction of action that will lead you to success in the conceived fact, looks like this:

  1. Putting the machine frame.

For this:

  • Connects the two corner or a channel a length of 8 m using semidesyatisantimetrovyh profile pipes in increments of one meter, using bolts or welding. In this groove must be rotated upwards.
    If the length of the log to be cut may be smaller, you should immediately consider the method by which you can back it on the opposite side of the blade. It is sufficient to weld the sleepers to the loop into which then insert or reinforcement pieces again the same vertical profile pipes base;

  • In the area of ​​sleepers welds on the sides of the inside of the channel bars are small pieces of pipesWho will hold the position on a frame beam from rolling to the side;
  • Then Fasten four pillars on each side. They can be made also of U-sections or profiled pipes. Be sure to check with the resulting horizontal design to exclude the presence of biases;

concreted recommend legs. This ensures the greatest stability of the entire machine, which is needed when dealing with such a marker and heavy products.

  1. Putting the saw carriage according located below the drawing. I note that the tape frame in the end should have at the bottom of the rollers on the sides of the stabilizing struts and the side of a convenient handle to move it. Saw also establishes via the lead screw to further have the ability to regulate the thickness of the boards produced;

Comparison of self-made and purchased options

What are the band saw better homemade or factory? It all depends on your goals. If the volume of your work is small, it is more rational to once "roll up their sleeves" and assemble the machine yourself.

But, if that's planks and beams need a lot or you do decide to do their production professionally, then you should have to go to the store.

To my recommendation, I was not unfounded give you cons of both options.

Cons handwritten assembly

  • The complexity of the adjustmentWhich also have to exercise regularly. Without heavy plant equipment manufacture such fastening systems, which will not work loose during operation of the machine;
  • Much kerf widthWhich leads to a lot of waste. On the dissolution of the logs you do not notice, but a few tens of loss will be felt;
  • Relatively low productivity. The pace of industrial model of "homemade" is simply not survive.

Less factory equipment

Here he is one, and on it you could well have guessed from the above models. it high price. Justify herself only when performing large volumes of work.

Factory model should work, and to work to pay back the money spent on it

conclusion

From the article, you learned what you may need to tape the sawmill, as it is possible to make yourself at home, and what the factory model can now be found on the market. Soberly assess their needs and make your choice on the most suitable option for you.
