Did you happen to get a name or phone number of the guy with the big slab chain sawmill?

I wanted to contact him about doing some large logs here in my yard.

No I did not Jim.
At the Fryeburg fair they had the usual things but this one thing was something to see

 

  

  

 

It had a head and tail mounts like a wood lathe
This is how they load it
 

 
Then put on a debarker.
 

  

  

 
you can see how much it took off. You had to make the log the same size from end to end
 

 
Then put the blade back on and make clapboard. The log goes back and forth
 

  

  

  

 
The guy made the thing at his house and now he makes clapboards for a living.
And some guy I thought was good at what he did
 

 
And some other good things
 

  

  

 
I am a GM kind of guy ;D
And my friends from WM
 

  

 
all and all a good time

How did the guy with the clapboard setup get them off the log when he finished?  That's really neat.

They should just snap off. Not much holding them on.

he had to use a flat bar to get started then snap them off, I think if he index a little less they would fall out

Sawing a little deeper would cause them to drop off, but I suspect the diameter that the log is surfaced down to is planned such that the clapboards don't drop off prematurely  (as that early dropping would likely happen before the saw cut was finished and may make a mess).
