What's your jig look like Bruno, mind me asking?

Ive decided to palletise our sawing operation, sick of double handling.



 

I've only made a handful so far, not been too fussy about gaps and overhang. Soon realise how heavy a Paslode is when you've put a dozen rows through it in ten minutes, need a nail farm to keep this up!

Update 
The pallet building is going well. The bridge company just added another 100 a month so 100 every 2 weeks plus the donnage. I will be in the market for a resaw in the future.

The Wood-Mizer HR series is a lot saw for the money. It has enormous cant capacity for an entry level resaw, I even used mine for reclaiming lumber from slabs.

That's good news Bruno. They must like your pallets.
Why does a bridge company need so many pallets? Do they sell a product?

This company make big steel beams for the making of bridges.
They hire special trucks and trailers to move them all over the east cost.
The beams are 5' to 6' tall and many feet long .
I think they ship bolts and other hardware on them .

That would be my guess too, I hauled some loads out of a company in Wausau (near me) that builds interstate highway bridges. They prefabricate as much as possible, and then ship the pieces to the jobsite. The welded steel I beams themselves can be 100'+ long, and are hauled on specialized steerable trailers. The steel "X" braces I hauled are loaded on flatbeds, and shipped with hardware, brackets, or any other parts for the bridge. Every piece of the bridge has be inspected to meet specs, and then certified by the highway department of the state they are going to.
Under bark there's boards and beams, somewhere in between.
Cuttin' while its green, through a steady sawdust stream.
I'm chasing the sawdust dream.
