Finnish term or phrase: höylä (sawmill)
When the terms "höylä", "höyläkone", and "höylätä" are used in reference to a sawmill and logs, what is the standard translation of these terms?

"Plane" could work as a translation of "höylä" and "höylätä" if we're talking about a small, hand-held (or household) item -- but what about a big machine that operates on entire beams/logs of wood?

(This is probably pretty basic sawmill terminology, but I'm not versed in the industry at all.)

Thanks

"planer" seems to work, but not quite sure about "planing mill" (as that seems to be covered by "höyläämö")

Asker: Thank you. "planing mill" seems to be "höyläämö", though, based on the searches I've done.
