Plans :Building a portable chainsaw mill

Do any members have or sell plans for building your own portable chainsaw mill? I would like to build one that I could hitch to my truck and take to wherever I find the logs.

Those aren't called chain saw mills, I think you're thinking of something called a 105mm Howitzer.

Seriously, I don't think I have ever seen a CSM large enough to need to be towed. The forte of the CSM is its portability - you can take it into the woods to take apart the log that's too big to get out.

Sorry I can't help.

Howitzer. Actually, directly after posting I realized the portable sawmill has a blade and not a chainsaw! Since then and much more research I think the Alaskan CSM will suit my needs. The limited market where I live just makes these products so much more expensive. Thanks anyway Texas!
