Sawmills and Milling / Re: I have a Blade Question

« Last post by curved-wood on Today at 06:45:18 PM »
 
Here is some other options with band blades. Denis Marceau is an artist that use 10'' band saw that has teeth on both side so they cut backwords as well. He cuts it in strips, weld back with the teeth face to face. With a lazer he cut some historical image about the history of the river with many scene about logger and wood floating. They are like pictures frames in a film. That piece has a lenth of around 10 feet.

The slab pile is way bigger than the lumber. Lots of dry rot.

The 066 never had a oil pump discharge hose, it's the same as the 660.
Wish I kept that 064 braided hose, and just to make sure we're both on the same page when I say braided I mean the layer under the black covering has a fabric composition to it.
It basically deteriorated at the pump nipple underneath  the aluminum clamp.
Whoops! You are right on the 066 not having outlet hose.  I forgot they changed around the drive and flywheel side from the 064.  I appreciate your insights from years of working on saws.
I need to R + R my 064.  It's well used but has a dead bosch coil; I plan on making a bracket so I can use the universal stihl coil.  I got it cheap, P/C is good and it's been updated to newer HD air filter.  I also have a NOS/OEM Mahle P/C if I ever need it.
My 066 is the only stihl I ever had new; I got it with a logosol M5 sawmill.  I've never had to tear that one down, yet. 
All my other Stihls I got either free or as scrap and have rebuilt them.  There are a bunch I don't have time to fix right now.
I have CAD (chainsaw addiction disorder)......

Pete,

Darn that makes my back hurt just thinking about it. You take care of yourself and follow the Drs orders. I always say a guy should keep the ice cream to the house freezer too!

Sawmills and Milling / Re: Filter dust without losing heat?

« Last post by charles mann on Today at 05:48:06 PM »
You think it would pull that much heat out during use? If it would be pulling cold air in, maybe sealing off the shop would be the first place to start.
If air is leaving the shop the same amount of air has to be pulled in to replace it. Sealing the shop to that point would only hamper the effectiveness of the dust collection.

Yes, i know. 
Its a trade off somewhere. Inside, the collection unit will keep heat in, but would require a good filtration system. Its doable, but the amount of heat being lost, shouldnt be that much. 
We have 3 3tn dust collectors throughout our shop, especially in the grinding room and sheet metal bays. The units are outside and our shop stays a nice 70F, hotter when on top of the acft, and the heater units cycle on and off. We dont loose a lot heat, unless the hanger door is opened and we have 6 4 pipes for fresh air vents.

I have seen them at a pallet mill. They had a softwood mill out back and I saw them blades there. I can't remember if they looked like that or not. I remember wide and a big loop.

Bradm is correct, only I always called them" sliver teeth". Keeps the back of saw from snagging on wood on the return gig. 
Yes, I've actually seen them cut a few inches on the back return. Not straight tho!

My Oneida has a large pleated filter (about 5' tall) for the exhaust air. It's amazing how little dust actually makes it into that filter. It has a little catch bin that unfastens from the bottom to empty the dust. I bang on the sides of the filter to knock dust loose before I empty the bin. Every so often I'll blow compressed air through the pleats before emptying the little bin too. You can also rinse it off with water.

I would think that with the larger chips coming from the sawmill and planer (as opposed to table saw, chop saw, and sanders) that very much of anything would make it past a good cyclone.

I need to plan a dust collection system for a new shop.  The sawmill will be inside and I want to collect the dust to keep the shop clean.  The shop will be heated in winter.  Can you filter the dust without sending it outside where you'd lose all your heat?  If so, where do I look for equipment to do so?  Blowers aren't the issue, but filtering that much dust is.

Note, the mill will be electric, and I'd like to have the dust collection activated by the switch on the mill.  Other devices will also be connected to the dust collection like a planer, table saw etc and hopefully dust collection will be relay activated by switching on those machines.  I could also opt for a smaller dust collector blower if needed for the smaller machines.
It is absolutely doable.   
Please read this
Dust Collection Research - Home
I made my own 2.2 kw cyclone. 
A bit small for my shop now. But plans are in the pipe. 
I stopped coughing as much, with the filters on this one. 
Grizzly offers some nice cyclones.  Tho, you will need a big one with a sawmill.  And they're not cheap. 
One word of advice i can give, if you can afford it, buy a rotary vane, which will allow you to use a bin, garbage container, trailer or whatever under the cyclone.

My first thought is to have a indoor dust collection system but use a large bin(s) with removable top that could be moved with a forklift for emptying and air return filter but probably by the time you empty it and clean the filters there would be more mess in the shop than you would like and lots of heat loss from opening the door to remove and return the bin plus a loss of floor space in the shop.

Second thought would be to put the dust collection system outside the shop perhaps in shed and still use the large bin(s) for a larger capacity with the filtered return air running back to the shop or try to figure out if it is feasible to run the return air through a heat exchanger.

Keeping it all inside seems like probably the cheapest and easiest but I'm not sure how feasible that is depending on shop size. I've seen some pretty big units with 3 or more what appear to be 55 gallon drums daisy chained together. That would give some capacity. Or maybe even just one 55 gallon drum would do if it was quick and easy to swap out drums. Then you could just empty once at the end of the day (or multiple days depending on use) Fairly large scale dust collection systems seem to go pretty cheap on craigslist/facebook marketplace.

Another option would be a cyclone unit outside with the exhaust plumbed back into the shop with a filter to catch the fine particles the cyclone missed. But unless you've got a really big hopper outside, like the commercial guys do, it seems like it would be easier to keep it all inside rather than going outside to empty barrels all the time.

My vote would be for keeping everything inside. I've got a large 3hp Oneida and never thought it was excessively noisy. A cabinetmaker friend upgraded to at least a 5hp 3 phase (maybe 7.5hp) Oneida and it's all inside too. Noise doesn't seem so bad considering the other equipment that's being run.

A few mills local to me run almost that exact size of blade.  That tooth on the back is a splinter tooth.  They help on the single cut band from catching splinters when the carriage returns.
