Being a woodworker, I'm always looking for good, cheap hardwood. Thought about purchasing a portable bandsaw mill. Went to a Wood Mizer open house, search the internet, etc. Realized that the one that would most suit my needs was about $8000. Way out of my ball park for a big fancy tool. Put that idea on the back burner. A few months later, I had one of those nights where you wake up and just can't get back to sleep. A rare event for me, usually I'm out about the same time the light goes out and don't wake up till the alarm goes off. While tossing and turning, I came up with what you see below. Similar to some of the ones I've seen on the internet but my own design using the limited resources I had. A bar and chain from an old Homelite, 18 hp engine from a free riding mower the neighbor gave me, reclaimed lumber from work, an atv winch to raise and lower the saw. The only thing I bought was some steel for the frame. Not a speed demon and more waste with the wide chainsaw bar and chain versus a bandsaw, but I got a lot of satisfaction building it.
