Timberking circular mill
« on: October 01, 2016, 12:32:36 PM »
Anyone running a Timberking circular mill.
My research shows me it's a late model belsaw type mill. Bought it in Ar. N moved it to s.e. Mo. To use on the farm. Contacted TK and they only make band mills now. Would like to find copies of original manuals.

Short answer no I have a TK band mill.

However I collect things and I have electronic copies of some limited stuff from Belsaw model J circular mill.

What Belsaw circular mill do you have?

Not sure on model it is branded Timberking on the frame rail. Haven't found data plate yet it's still loaded on trailer.Bought from estate sale was told it was purchased new in mid 1990s. Contacted TK direct n they said they did make it but discontinued them in late 1990s and stopped parts support in mid 2000.

Here are two poor quality conversions of pdf to jpg.  Sorry about the fuzziness but had to shrink the size down for 75 kb limit.
If you have this model we will figure out how to get you better quality copies of the pdf documents.  I have included these to see if they match your mill.

Thank you for those. They are of much older unit than mine but clear up couple things for me. I found some more stuff on antique machinery forum that helped also. Mine has all steel frame and support legs and is Tractor pto driven. Came with a42 and 46 inch insert tooth blades.42 is still bolted to shipping frame . And just received a bunch  of pics from owners family of it all setup . So I'm set to setup and try it.

Couple more questions 46"  blade  30 teeth  has Bx8H stamped on shanks and one hole for insert tool can't find number on bit itself blade is stamped  7. Rh550  36331  anyone decipher this.   44" blade is a 38 tooth  #39 stamped on shanks and R.Hoe and Simond on alternating shanks no #on bits  and can't find any stamping on blade itself it's shanks have 2 holes for insert tool .

Bunny Holler, somewhere on the net I've seen Belsaw instructions, I would google it. Your 46" saw uses Simons "B" series bits and shanks still readily available. I think 8 is the gauge right hand mill hammered for 550 RPM, 36331 should be the serial number. Other saw I'am not sure about. Frank C.
