Portable sawmill detail.png

The portable sawmill is an item won on Treasure Hunter that acts as a lumber mill when planted. Planks made using it receive a 10% discount.

It can be placed anywhere that you can light a fire and is both visible to and usable by all other players. It vanishes 5 minutes after being placed. When using the sawmill, players are asked how many logs they would like to convert into planks. The cost for making a plank with the sawmill is 10% lower than the cost from the Sawmill operator.

Profit calculator[edit | edit source]

The following table estimates profit for every 1,000 logs turned into planks. Milling rates are typically around 8,000 planks per hour, but easily can be higher with use of a one-step bank, such as at the Lumbridge Market bank chest, along with a bank preset with mahogany logs.

Log Plank Log Price Cost Plank Value Profit/Loss
Logs Plank 1089 90 1775 592,209
Oak logs Oak plank 724 225 424 −528,791
Teak logs Teak plank 188 450 437 −204,791
Mahogany logs Mahogany plank 831 1350 1626 −558,791
