My name is Wayne Gosnell. My father (Earl Gosnell) and I opened “Gosnell’s Woodcrafters” about 8 years ago. We are located in Holly Springs South Carolina, just outside of Greenville. We purchased on “Oscar 36” about 3 1/2 years ago and saw wood just for our shop. We built a wood kiln to dry the wood we cut. We used a variety of wood like black walnut…
Like most wives, I rolled my eyes in doubt at my husband’s idea of buying a sawmill to help build our house. It sounded crazy to me until I realized the prices of building materials. We live in a doublewide mobile home in the hills of Jackson, Kentucky, we both work full time jobs and have always dreamed of having a “well-built” home from the lumber of our own property…

In September 2011 we had the largest fire in Texas in Bastrop County. After running another brand of sawmill to recover the pine wood from the fire. I decided that I wanted to get a sawmill that I could have at the ranch to recover logs. I wanted a simple sawmill that would mill logs without a lot of extras. We did a lot of research trying to find out who had the best sawmill. We came to the conclusion…
“I just purchased an HFE-21 portable sawmill at 12:00 pm on June 5, 2012 and by 5 pm that evening I was cutting logs. This is an outstanding piece of equipment for the price and I’m sure it will last for many years. GREAT JOB GUYS!”
I have always liked woodworking however the price of lumber is a real setback to some craftsman. This is why I took a chance and bought an OSCAR 18 this sawmill is perfect for the avid woodworker. I have enclosed a picture of the first project I built with my OSCAR 18. This is a solid cherry heirloom bookcase that I constructed from a log I had cut two years ago and never had the heart to cut it up for firewood so when I bought my OSCAR I was thrilled…
My Oscar 36 was delivered on 14 January, 2006 @ 1605 hours … about five minutes late. I can accept the delay, because of the inclement weather, and because Tom is probably related to you, by blood or marriage … after all, Hud-Son is a family affair. Besides that, a drop in temperature was the reason. I did not assemble the mill until Monday, 16 January 2006, when the morning temperature was 5 F. Even under those conditions, the Oscar 36 went together rather easily…
Just wanted to send you a note to say how much I’m enjoying my new mill. So far it has done everything I expected and is even easier than I had imagined to operate. I am still cleaning up storm damaged timber from hurricane Ivan which did heavy damage to my timber land in south central Alabama. I can’t tell you how much it means to me to be able to salvage this down timber and make really good looking lumber out of it. My Oscar 28 is big where it needs to be…
“I purchased an Oscar 30 from Johnson in Ogdensburg, WI yesterday. It took about an hour to set up and we were off and sawing. What a fantastic little machine! The Johnson’s were great to work with on this purchase. Want to let you know you have a great product (I’m quite sure you knew this already) KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK! Thanks A Million!”

As I exit my first cut, I disengage the clutch and move my mill to the end of the track. The moment of truth, what does it look like? I slide the cap onto a well-positioned forklift to take the top away. And as if I’m an archeologist cleaning the bones of a million year old T-rex, I gently brush away the layer of sawdust that remains. There it is!!! It’s everything I hoped and more. The rich brown color we are all so familiar with….
The 60 has really been working great, I’ve had a lot of monster logs on the deck and producing countless slabs, one western red maple log yielded $2500 worth of slabs. Only took couple hrs. Love the 30″band wheels. I’ve really got it down running the mill from maximum capabilities to quarter logs to fit TK mill.
My name is James Smith from Clayton, NY. I bought a HFE 30 mill from you folks two years ago and have been timber framing a barn with it.
“I purchased an Oscar 18 last year and to say I like it is an understatement! I never even seen one before, but after a little while I figured it out.Thanks again!
I purchased your Oscar 18 sawmill on August 1 and I need to tell you how pleased I am with this saw, your product is top line and what a good price also. I purchased the saw from Thick and Thin Lumber in Sabattus, Maine and the staff was #1….
