Blade speed question
« on: February 10, 2018, 12:57:49 PM »
In my sawmill plans it says this.

 

Any problems running between 3000-4000 like the plans say?
My pulley on my engine is 4 inch I was gonna go with a 10.25 pulley my tires are 21 inch. At 1800 rpm the blade speed calculator says around 3800. So I'm wondering if this will be fine?

WoW, I knew grits weren't fit to eat, but didn't know they were built on a sawmill down south. I am thinking our spruce grits would be even worse.
