The Michigan Woodworkers Guild arranged a tour of the Hardwoods of Michigan sawmill in Clinton Michigan today. It was amazing to see the process, they have kilns that hold 600,000 bd ft of lumber. They currently are drying 22,000,000 bd ft per year.

I was driving down the road in Delaware and they had about 20 of those bandsaw blades coiled up on a truck and trailer. One blade stacked on top of another. Teeth on each side.

Thanks for the tour.

In this close up the back side looks more like a drive sprocket, It would resemble teeth from a drive by,
not all the blades I saw had this feature.
Bade sharpening at HMI
