Type in the word "quartersawing" in the search function and lots of good stuff magically comes up.
The oil is all in Texas, but the dipsticks are in D.C.

Welcome!  Woodmizer has a set of informational DVD's done in a seminar format. These were the seminars done at the 25th Anniversary Tour.  The Quartersawing session was good, as was Getting the most $ from a Log.  Heck, they were all good, and I refresh my memory occasionally by watching them (like when I haven't had enough saw-time).

You can order them from the woodmizer site.  The info is general and applies to any saw.

I tried a variety of approaches and illustrated them here to share with other sawyers and my/their customers.
