Thanks for the link Joe. That looks like a well managed mill. Powered by 100yr+ steam engines fueled by sawdust and chips – fantastic. -Jack

ChuckC, I was wondering about the blade with the opposite edge having those shallow teeth. Wonder if that was a used edge and not enough material left to sharpen adequately. Wonder how long a blade lasts ?? Wonder if it is days or hours !!

Wow, that’s pretty interesting. I am surprised I have seen this one Discovery or History Channel. That blade is something else.

I have 2 comments

1 – That is one heck of a miter saw the dude in shades is running!!!!

2 – I bet they don’t “roll” that blade up and hang it on the wall!!!!
