BAND RE-SAWS. Up to within a few years ago Band ReSaws were comparatively little used, but since then, the demand for these machines has increased largely. In almost all cases the Band ReSaw will be found to save from 8 to 12 per cent in lumber, and also increase the output from 25 to 40 per cent. We show a small illustration of our 42 in. Band ReSawing machine, which is the most popular one we sell. Other sizes and styles can be furnished.
NO. 34 IMPROVED BAND RE-SAW. This machine has a capacity of any width from 1 to 20 in., and to the center of any thickness up to 8 in. The rolls are 4 in number, and are all driven; are placed within + in. of saw blade, holding the lumber perfectly rigid and straight. They are self-centering, thus permitting a 1 in. board to follow another thick, without readjustment, sawing both boards exactly in the center. If desired, either set of rolls can be stationary while the other yields, enabling the operator to cut a 4 or in. slab from a board of any thickness up to 4 If desired, we can furnish this machine for doing scroll work, the knuckle joint being disconnected, feed works being taken off, and an iron table substituted. The whole feeding apparatus can be instantly tilted for bevel sawing. There are three changes of speed, viz : 40, 26 and 17 lineal ft. per minute. The machine is guaranteed to saw over 20,000 ft. of bevel siding per day, taking less than in. kerf. Price, $500.00; weight, 4700 tbs.
No. 4 Band Scroll and ReSaw is of the same general type as No. 34, but heavier and of larger capacity, having 48 in. wheels, suitable for blades as wide as 4 in. Will take in stock 24 in. under the guide, and cut any thickness to 10 in. Price, $600.00; weight, 6000 bs.
WE HOPE THE GENTLE READER WILL UNDERSTAND THAT WHAT WE HAVE TO SAY IN THIS CATALOGUE DOESN'T COVER ALL WE KNOW. THERE ARE THREE OR FOUR (?) THINGS BESIDES, WHICH ON ACCOUNT OF LACK OF SPACE WE ARE COMPELLED TO LEAVE OUT. IF YOU WANT TO KNOW ABOUT OTHER MACHINERY, WRITE US, AND IF WE KNOW ABOUT IT WE WILL TELL YOU.
BAND RIP SAWING MACHINE. This machine is of a type that has come into use but recently. The advantages are, first, in the matter of speed, and second, in economy. It will do about 20 per cent more work than a Circular Rip Saw. A 20 gauge Saw is used, the kerf being less than I in. One of the leading lumber manufacturers in our city put in one of these machines about two years ago, and has since bought eight of them, which speaks more for the machine than words.
