Like punching trees, but better!
The Sawmill is one of the Machines added by Thermal Expansion. It uses Redstone Flux to cut wooden objects. It is capable of processing Wood logs more efficiently than by hand, as well as turning various things made of wood back into Wood Planks. The machine often produces Sawdust as a byproduct.
When working at maximum speed, the Sawmill consumes 20 RF per tick. When its internal energy storage is starting to deplete, the Machine will slow down and use less power. This prevents sudden interruptions of the Sawmill's work when its power supply cuts short.
The different sides of the Sawmill correspond to different color-coded slots in its GUI. These sides can be identified by color-coded openings in the sides of the Sawmill. This is used for handling input and output with ducts/pipes/conduits/tubes, other Machines and other types of inventories.

The following table lists the recipes that the Sawmill can perform. Recipes that use less energy also take less time.
