Of the mills sampled, only the second mill had a different production flow in that it was lacking a resaw
. In Sawmills 1 and 3, the head saw converted logs into cants, and then a resaw
was used to saw the cants into lumber.

It's family," said Guy McNett, a resaw
operator who got his first job with Collins in 1974.
Installing a riser block on a typical 14-in, band saw increases its resaw
capacity from 6 to 12 in.
A 1,200-mm band mill with an auto-feed carriage and a 1,100-mm auto-roller table band resaw
installed in the Forestry and Forest Products Research Institute, Japan, were used in this study.
Baker Products' Model "DX" band resaw
features heavy-duty roller-style infeed and outfeed turnarounds, infeed deck and out-feed transfer conveyor.
If you want to slice thick boards into thinner boards, consider a "resaw
" blade designed just for that job.
A Baker ABXX band resaw
will slice lumber horizontally, thus enabling Zepsa Industries to bookmatch thick pieces like door stiles.
The mill that cooperated in this study is a relatively new, large sawmill with modern equipment including computer-assisted scanners and optimizers at major processing centers (i.e., log merchandizer, band headrig, twinband headsaw, circular gang resaw
, and gang trimmer) in addition to highly mechanized materials handling systems.
A manufacturer of stile and rail doors, cabinet doors, windows, mouldings, stair parts and radius woodwork, Stanton & Stanton increased its productivity through the purchase of a Kentwood 649 2cd moulder, resaw
, single-end tenoner, 32-1/2-in.-wide planer and a profile grinder.
The remaining slabs are sent to a resaw
where, if enough material remains, additional 27-mm-thick boards are removed.
