You have to remember that our vertical edger is large, it can edge cants out of the side of a log. If you were simply using the edger for boards up to 8 quarter it would take considerably less power.

I used to adjust the vertical edger, when we first got it.  That's because I didn't know any better.  It seemed that the poplar would cut out, and the oak would cut in.  So, I make minor adjustments when filing the saw or with the saw guides.

We have made some adjustments for plumb, and lead on the edger.  It only took me about a year to convince them that their edger was leading in.  I was told it was plumb.  I said no matter, it wasn't sawing right.  Put some lead in and it sawed straight.  

I hardly ever fool with the lead on the headsaw.  If it ain't cutting right, usually it isn't the lead.  A lot of times it is in the filing.  I will take some lead off when sawing frozen wood.

The vertical edger will tell you if you are feeding too fast, or if your saw is dull.  It will either mark the next board, or the edging strips will still be attached to the board.  Your margin of error is probably about 1/8".  They make you a better sawyer.

Never under estimate the power of stupid people in large groups.

Good point. A vertical edger is an instant indicator on how the head saw is running. Saw leads in and the boards may hang together, saw leading out and the edger will leave lines on the next face.

Three blade horizontal edger.  Shop built somewhere in the UP many years.  I know it's way older than I am ;D
