Thomas Bandsaw Manufacturer in Brooks, ME

Mission Statement

At Dale A. Thomas and Sons our goal is to provide our customers with the best quality products in the market that offers exceptional value for your money!

A Family Tradition of Craftsmanship & Innovation

We at the Thomas family have deep roots in the Maine tradition of craftsmanship and innovation. Dale Thomas began working with steel in 1959 and for almost five decades gained extensive experience in steel fabrication and design.

In 1982, Dale Thomas bought the steel fabrication business he worked for and formed Dale A. Thomas and Sons, Inc. The company spent the next 20+ years doing custom designed jobs of rugged steel farm equipment, as well as selling different types of portable bandsaws. His son Jon joined the company full time in 1997. We started manufacturing the Thomas Portable Bandsaw Mills.

The company now produces a variety of bandsaws, which are reasonably priced, easy to operate, large capacity, portable and very durable, we also produce two models of the Thomas Edger. After extensive development we created a more feature packed and heavier mill than we had before. This new design is our flagship moving forward.

We are very proud of our company’s tradition and we are equally proud of our products.

Baldwin Apple Ladders,

Amazingly, a simple mill that can be used for commercial use. I saw 30-40 thousand board feet a year and have used Thomas Mills for 13 years. I really enjoy doing business with a family company.

Maine Grilling Woods, LLC

Maine Grilling Woods purchased the first of three band saw mills from Thomas nearly six years ago to test the durability and performance of their mills. After running a minimum of six hours a day, five days a week our original 13 hp mill is still going strong. During this time other than normal maintenance and blades, we have spent less than $300.00 in total for all parts and labor in repairs. The other larger mills are performing equally as well. In fact, we have never had any of our mills down even for a day.

Thomas Bandsaw Mills have definitely lived up to their end of the deal with quality mills, complete parts back up, and great service when needed. We are getting ready to purchase another mill in the near future and I am not even going to get a quote anywhere else.

We bought our 8020 in 2005 after talking to Jon on the phone. The mill is giving us great service here in the United Kingdom. If I've had a problem, there is help just a phone call away, (the problems I encounter are operator errors bad set blades or poor sharpening). We attend 4-5 local shows a year and the saw always attracts a lot of attention. I fabricated the base over here to reduce shipping time and had to put a hand crank feed on when I damaged my shoulder. Thank you for a great product.
