Bandsaw mills use flexible, think, kerf blades. The kerf is the gap left behind the blade as it moves through the wood. A thin kerf means less of your log ends up as sawdust and more is converted to lumber than with a traditional, circular sawmill. Wood-Mizer is also the only manufacturer that also makes sawmill blades. State-of-the-art quality control ensures these blades are the best available and produce the highest quality cuts.
My Wood-Mizer mill has several optional features that enhance productivity and accuracy:
Full Hydraulic Controls – allows the mill to quickly and safely load your logs and position them for optimal cutting.
Lube-Mizer – allows for precise control of the blade lubricating fluid (mainly water). Using too little can result in poor quality cuts. Using too much makes a mess. Lube-Mizer ensures optimal amounts of lubricating fluid is used.
The Debarker – removes a strip of bark ahead of the main cutting blade. This reduces wear on the blade, which in turn improves the quality of the cut and prolongs the life of the blades.
Extra Back-Stops – allows the sawyer to handle shorter logs. The standard configuration has two back-stops six feet apart. We have two additional back-stops which permit me to handle logs as short as three and a ½ feet long.
The mill is also equipped with a safe trailering package, including lights and brakes to ensure the safest transport to and from your site.
