Recognize this resaw?
« on: November 06, 2019, 09:47:43 PM »
This is in a local auction.  Does this look like something you recognize or is this homemade?  It has a predator engine, which I believe is Harbor Freight.

Is that a re-saw or an edger?

If it is a edger at least one blade will shift on the mandrel.

It appears to have 2 blades about 6 inches apart.

Looks like a homemade edger to me. I was in the reading room this morning and in an old '03 sawmill and woodlot was an ad from Burlee Machinery from Licking, MO for a circular thin kerf resaw that used 10" blades and had visible hold down tires like yours. Looking at the welds and layout I think yours is a homemade edger but just putting it out there that there are or were circular resaws in your neck of the woods.

Interesting.  Licking is only about 90 minutes from my house.

Ive never used an edger.  How does it work?  What guides it straight thru the blades?

Depends on the design.  Mine has power feed rollers in and out, top rollers are held down with spring pressure and the bottom ones don't move.  The board is forced in and pulled through, as long as they are parallel and exerting the same pressure they will hold the board true and you can cut one or both sides of the board at the same time.  The other design has a feed in and feed out belt.  The space where the blades turn is open, same theory but my experience is that that design tends to have more maintenance issues.

This thing appears to be all manual....have to push it in one side and pull it out the other.  Cant really tell from pictures.  Im winning it currently in online auction for $1.50.  Probably will go up, but I doubt many will know what it is.

Will be interesting to see it run if you get it. Any other photos of the unit?

Def not a resaw. It looks like an edger or gang rip with some thinking issues. I suspect you are bidding on an engine and some steel for future projects.

Yeah, Ive considered that I can just use the engine for something else.  The infeed and outfeed roller tables appear to be separate, so those could be used somewhere else.
