Hi Jimbearcar1 said:Great photos and narration, thanks for sharing with us. I did not especially like the fellow sitting with his legs stretched out underneath that big blade while it was being sharpened. I'm just getting more and more like an old woman I guess, but it was creepy just the same.
The teeth on the back of the saw is called a sliver tooth...it's for cutting the slivers when they run the log back to take another cut. The guy sitting there is on his lunch break...ya think.joe d said:Hi Jim
got to say that that bit didn't sit right with me either! I did find it interesting that it looks very much like they
re-cycled the blade by cutting new teeth on what was originally the back side of the blade. Not so sure that
would be worth the trouble for a home-shop sized blade...
Here is a link to a lot of steam engines and details. It can also be found from Nemts link but would be easy to miss.nemt said:
