Default Lumber Processing

These guys are pretty serious about processing lumber.

That is the first tie I have seen a 2 edged band saw blade.

One of the things on my to do list is find out where the local hardwood stores get their wood.

Would it be worth it to salvage storm dropped stuff for them?

It has made me cringe at the stuff my son has burned.

I was on a tour of a mill in Northern Ontario in about 1983 or so, they had 2 edged bandsaw blades then. It was mostly framing lumber they were making, had multiple saws going as well.

I have worked on a mill in Kamloops that uses a double cut band saw
These things are about 20 ft long 6-8 inches across and about .150 thick.
Three blades per shift minimum need to be changed and they are not light.
The biggest problem changing them is finding a safe way to hold them.
Life beats the alternative hands down.
