I have added this post due to some requests to show how the drive axle/shaft of the car ends up fitting together to make the drive axle for the bandsaw mill.
I feel this is the part that makes this mill different from other homemade saw mills. These parts can be very inexpensive (even free) if you find the right person or salvage yard. What you want to aim for are vehicles that are old enough and so common that these parts do not have any resale value as replacement parts, and basically will be sold for the price of scrap metal.
You will use the front wheel bearing and axle for the ” Drive wheel” and you will use the rear for the opposite side/end of the mill. You will also get the dummy / spare tires from the same vehicle so that the bolt pattern lines up properly.
