Metal Working For Woodworkers

If you are a woodworker I think you should have enough hand skills to do
the metal work involved in building a Wombat Saw Mill.

Apart from welding, its primarily a matter of using some different tools to
work with metal instead of wood.

As I expected woodies without metal working experience to be interested, I designed the Wombat Saw Mill so that is mainly bolted together. There are very few welds needed so you could bolt one together and just get the small welding jobs done by a friend or local business or even maybe a nearby trade school.
