I am getting ready to build a sawmill. I have the H.O. sawmill machinery set put out by brett at sierra west. The only problem I,m having is I can't find the 12x16, the 16x16, and the 22x26 scale wood called for in the materials list. I have checked the usual lumber suppliers websites(kappler, mt albert and northeastern) Is this size custom to brett? I have emailed him, and posted on his forum but have not gotten a reply yet. Any suggestions?

Ed, it's been a while since this was discussed here, but I seem to remember that if you call Mt. Albert they have a package available of all the wood you need for the SierraWest no-frills kits.

Hey, Ed,

Sierra West has a Forum now.


I did not know that. Maybe you can find some info on stripwood on it.

Good luck ,

Black Bear has the 12x12 and 12x16 - see link

Not sure about the larger size.

I have used their wood for trestles.

Ed and I spoke on the phone so I believe he is set... for reference North Eastern has a pack for the sawmill kit where a few of the odder sizes have close substitutions. Mt Albert will have the exact dimensions. Since we are talking HO Scale the subs are within a few thousands of inch and work just fine.

Hi Ed:

If you contact Rick Hunter at www.hunterline.com he will be able to help you out. Rick sells Mt. Albert wood as a distributor. You can contact Gerry at Mt. Albert but he deals in bulk orders (100 pieces per size) Rick takes care of your order ... he sells a great line of stains too!

We are lucky to have Rick of Hunterline in our area.
He regularly gives clinics and construction sessions through our WOD NMRA.

I have known him for a long time. He and wife Maureen are great people!

Walthers?? No one buys from Walthers? How about a local RC model shop. They are stocked with strip wood. I bought all my strip wood from Walthers a few years back when I used Bretts sawmill machinery kits and built a mill.
