That’s just insane. I love the way it turns the log to make sure it cuts more than just flat cutting. And the larger cuts on the end were interesting.

Pretty cool. I could watch that for a couple hours, but like Jim said … if it was my JOB, I’d grow to not like it after a while.

As fast as that machine runs my eyes, brains and hands would be out of whack in a few minutes and not communicating or like each other.

It’s an impressive machine though. I would like to watch one of them operate in a mill.

I don’t understand why you want one of these. For a business? I’d be bored after watching it for five minutes. Worse than assembly line work.

DKV where is yo mind tonight lol. I was not being serious about owning one of those mills but I do think you could cut a lot of firewood with one on them in a short period of time lol.

I do love a sawmill though and enjoy watching them work.
