when the slices come of from the log, the bark is being cut of in the process of edging. The bark is not in a straight line however on the lsice so for optimized output (as many boards from a log) this process is very important and should only be done by expereinced employees. They more or less calculate what kind of boards may come out (1×6” wide and 1×4” wide or 1×6” wide and 1×3” wide) and production is either good or with a poor yield. This edging is done with a 30hp engine because all wood is hardwood and sometimes 2” thick (for local construction)

maybe better no copy to OSHA, I looked it up on the internet and I see what it is.

I have to say that the set up as shown in the video applies for 90% of all the mills here in Bolivia and as well as in Brazil, and I guess for most of South and middle America.
