Multiple Saw Sawmill

Back in 1670 it would take two strong men working in a sawpit a month to create that much board foot of lumber for $0.25 cent a hundred. Now it takes a machine like the one here 25 minutes for $1670 a hundred board feet. Progress.This seems to me like an exercise in “because we […]

Back in 1670 it would take two strong men working in a sawpit a month to create that much board foot of lumber for $0.25 cent a hundred. Now it takes a machine like the one here 25 minutes for $1670 a hundred board feet.

Progress.This seems to me like an exercise in “because we can” rather than practical necessity.Since they don’t show the finished product I assume it did not pass final inspection with no plumbing , electrical or heating.

Talk about ancient. This mill looks like it was built. Granted we never cut logs this big. Our mill was more modern. We cut almost 11/2 million board feet a day.

We didn’t have men walking around unprotected while lumber was being sawed. I think the people who purchased the mill after the owner was killed in a car accident were from Sweden or Denmark. The mill failed shortly after they took over.

How hard would it be to modify the door or cut shorter logs and eliminate that total hassle getting in and out just seems like a lack of thought.
