I hope to get a mill soon. I will be getting a panther mill, but not sure what size yet. Saw will be a 394xp.
394 makes some good power for milling. A good setup for that for most of your milling would be a 32" bar. Ought to give you about a 26-28" cut based on how the bar mounts on the mill. I get a 22" cut with a 28" bar with the bar drilled and bolted to the mill.

I haven't seen those yet. I have a carriage mill that I made but the carriage just isn't as good. I need to make it better. Wouldn't mind building a logosol style mill.

I just checked those out, that is awesome. Wheels are turning in my head right now. They might turn faster is they weren't square.

I've got a Granberg mini mill I've used a couple of times .It's okay to cut a few thick planks but it's a lot of work and slow as a snail compaired to a bandsaw even using a 125 McCulloch or a 2100 S Homelite .
You got that right. I don't have a band mill but they scream compared to a chainsaw mill but I like being able to carry my mill into the woods and make lumber.

I'm a big fan of the Alaskan saw mill. I use a Dolmar 9010 with a 28" bar and Woodland Pro ripping chain with an aux oiler. What do you guys like to use?
I too, have an Alaskan mill... I run the 9010 with a 36" bar and semi chisel chain filed at 15 degrees.
I wish I had more time to play with it... I have made some 26"x3"x9' Hickory slabs for a friend's bar top.
No aux oiler yet...

I'm using a borrowed Alaskan III and it works well. And yeah, it needs a big power head pushing on it. A 181 Husky I had tried was enough for what I do, a little bit here and there. Just need a 24" bar and chain to go with it. Too bad the 181 isn't mine, I'd have lots more work for the mill if it was !
