so far it is the one on vacation. i am still working on it, but i hope you are right.

i set it up so that the longet flitches could be slid off the end of the mill and still have room to walk between the edged and the pile, and that the length that i cut the most of could fall off the other end of the edger. i hope this will allow me to edge out a pile of flitches and not have  to go to the other end to catch any of them till i  am done. i may have to changeout the 3 rollers on the outfeed side for some skate rollers because they are too far apart and will let a bowed flitch hang up.

this edger  has powered in and out feed  and they are much faster than i expected.  i bet it feeds a 10 ft flitch through in about 8 seconds.  the moveable blade is stuck on the shaft. anyone got any good ideas how to get it loosened up besides pb blaster and the schorch wrench?  pc

Flat coca cola...soak it...wait a day..tap it some...soak it again. Works like a charm...just be sure to rinse it when it comes loose...then grease it...

A few times in the past I tried setting aside all my flitches for a week, and then edging them on the mill in big batches. Bad idea. It gave the illusion that I was pumping out timbers faster but my overall production was lower and it was a back killer.

After I figured out that batch edging wasn't the way to go I made it a practice to edge after every log. Up until last year, that is. That's when I bought a twin-blade edger. Now I pull the flitches off the mill and stack them next to the edger infeed. I spend a fraction of the time batch-edging then when I did it on the mill. My back loves me.

my hope with the edger is i wont have to pick up the whole flitch at once. i hope to be able to pull one end to the edger rollers and the pick up the other end and guide it in. with batch edging or otherwise quite often i have to pick up a whole flitch to get it where i want it.

when i get the thing up and running i have plans to fix a rack to catch the boards and edgings so i can pick up the whole mess with the forklift and carry it to the slab rack, sort off the trimmings and carry the boards to the cuttoff table.   pc
