Circle sawmill shank ID help
« on: May 15, 2022, 02:44:41 PM »
Got the blades home finally that go to the sawmill. 

I have one 52" blade that was on the mill when I bought it. 

Then the 50" blade 

 

 

 

Next are the shanks on the three 48" saws.

Clean the rust off a couple of shanks and you should find either a number or a letter stamped on the shank. That is the style of shank you need.  Sometimes its also stamped on the side of the saw, above the eye.  Most common are a B, D, F, 2 1/2, 3, 3 1/2.  Anything else will be a challenge to get shanks or teeth.

If its hard to see, you might be able to do a tracing to get it. 
Never under estimate the power of stupid people in large groups.

Looks like 2 1/2 Hoe pattern with one hole and stand all bit that pattern almost always uses.  Oversize shanks are common in 2 1/2, there are 4 of these so you need to find the stampings.

Yes. But I read the stamp on the shank as a fraction. 21/27. I blame our heat wave in Georgia.
