I did some work on the edger. I decided to go with the rusty, grimy, white paint. I don't think it looks to bad. Hopefully more work tonight.

Roland,

Nice work on the edger. I see in the background you have a little table saw.

Not bad at all.

Looks like the white paid off. Very nice indeed.

Looks good Rolond, I know you mite not want to cover up those saws but it should have a cover on top to keep all those flying pieces inside. I used to run one at the pallet plant i worked in when I was a lot younger.

Thank you all for the many positive comments.

Mark, There will be a cover on top. Since you actually operated on of these could you give me a clue about the long wood handle on the cover be used for. It looks like it was added later and I'm not sure if I will put it on the model. Also in the back is a large wheel attached to the other side. Not sure what it does.



Thanks again, Roland

Yes Rolond, it is to raise thwe roller. The large wheel is probably a flywheel. Our had a 150hp electric motor on it, so it would not have needed a flywheel. Also ours had a 24" pipe coming out one side for the sawdust blower to suck out the sawdust. Most old mills had an opening in the floor under the saw for the sawdust to fall through. These saws could produce a lot of sawdust. We had rollers on both sides to hold the wood going in and coming out so it would not buck and bend the sawblades. Ours were operated by air instead of manuelly. We could turn 4"x6" cants into 2x4 as fast as you could feed the saw. Hope this helps.

Thank you Mark. It's nice to have an expert to turn to. I also like the idea of cutting a hole in the floor to get rid of the sawdust.
