This is a Recent addition to Delmont Sawmill (856) 785-1018. When we got it, it was powered by a wisconsin VE4 gasoline engine. We have removed the engine and run it off a 3 phase 20 hp motor.
It is operated by placing the block you want cut on the table near the front. The handle to the left (with the windings of rope around it) selects which way the table will tilt to get your taper. You grasp the block firmly with the handle on the upper right of the carriage. Push just a little and the block slides through the saw and your shingle falls out below . Retract the carriage, tilt the table the other direction and go again. One of the hardest things to learn is when to stop using the block of wood due to size. If it gets too small, the saw grabs it away from the hadles and slings it out the exaust or jams the blade.
This is where the operator stands, notice the white top handle on the left
This is the back side of the machine with the gaurd raised to show the saw size
This shows the carriage moved up with a small block in it
