Have You Seen This Portable Sawmill? Newtown Police Need Your Help
You've probably heard the phrase "If you see something, say something?"
Well in this case, if you saw this saw, say so. Newtown Police are looking for the public's assistance in locating a portable sawmill they say was stolen. On Monday (4/24/23) the Newtown PD shared the following post to their Facebook page:
"The Police Department is seeking the public's assistance in locating a Hud-Son HFE-21 Sawmill machine, stolen from the area of Pootatuck Park.
Oh, she's a beauty. The HUD-SON HFE-21 runs approximately 4g's, more specifically it costs $3,895.00. What is it? It's a portable sawmill, this thing allows you to make your own lumber. That's right no more trips to the lumber yard, you can just go in your backyard and hack one of your trees into a giant pile of lumber stout enough to produce a house.
Dig these specs from HUD-SON:
Produce your own lumber for any number of construction or hobbyist projects. The HFE-21 is perfect for sawing your logs into boards or re-sawing boards to any needed dimension. This mill is pushed through the log with almost no effort. Imagine how handy it would be to just saw up a board or two right on the spot if you needed to. These economical sawmills can be easily stored when not in use. It’s lightweight and compact requiring no more than a 3’ x 7’ storage space. The blade guides are Hud-Son blade guides and provide the best blade support available. This mill has the same heavy-duty bearing system and guide system that are larger bandmills have. If your Homesteader job turns into a bit larger than planned the HFE-21 will be there for you.
The thing was stolen from the Pootatuck area.
Anyone with information should contact Officer McCarthy at (203) 426-5841.
If that doesn't work we probably won't have to wait too long to find out who done it. A machine this dangerous, in the hands of a person dumb enough to steal it will likely result in a severed limb.
If I was a member of the Newtown Police Department, I'd just wait them out. They should just call the local hospitals every few hours. It's a matter of time.
Personally, I'm too dumb to know how to use this and smart enough not to buy it and hurt myself.
