McCabe Sawmill Interior & Machinery

Now you can get the machinery designed for the Slatyfork Sawmill. A complete sawmill interior kit, including all the needed machinery for the double band saw mill (two band saws, two edgers, two swing saws, two log carriages, and lots of rollers as shown in the drawing above) and details for the sawfiler's area, figures, and assorted clutter is available. The interior kit also includes the overhead belt drive components and the transfer used to bring the lumber down to the loading dock. Over 1,000 parts are in this kit to make the Slatyfork Sawmill interior complete. Most components can be adapted to other mills.


There seems to be a little confusion about what we mean by 'a complete sawmill interior kit.' Here is some of what is in the box...... for the main sawmill floor there are two band saws, two edgers, two swing saws, two log carriages and tracks, eight sets of rollers, lumber transfer, hog chutes, control stands, overhead drive belt hanger and belts for the swing saws, cants, workers, and even some sawdust. For the sawfile's area, there are two blade hoists, workbenches, shelves, blade stands, extra blades, desk, chair, sawhorses, ladder, tools, anvil, and junk & clutter. No logs are included since the diameter of the logs is based upon the area you are modeling.


In addition, individual kits for the band saw, edger, swing saw, rollers, and log carriage are now available. Inspired by prototypes from R. R. Howell, Cordesmann Machine, and Corinth, these components have been designed to fit the Slatyfork Sawmill, but will work in many other situations as well.

These Master Creations' kits consist of laser-cut basswood, plywood, cardstock, and brass, plastic, and white metal detail castings. The metal components of the band saw, edger, and swing saw are lost-wax brass castings that are already assembled, ready for you to attach the blades.

These are available direct only from B.T.S..

The interior photos were taken in an O Scale cutaway sawmill to better show the components. The upper end of the jack slip and the two log decks are part of the sawmill kit and are not shown here. Figures, and additional junk and clutter in the sawfiler's area, have yet to be installed.
