I need to figure out a way to do ten cords per day.
I was wondering if a mill would not do it faster 4+4s
and then cut them to length btw those would be true
cords no air space tightly stacked!
I don't think I'd do it, at least with the bandmill setup I have. When I want all 4x4's etc., I saw 4" thick slabs or flitch's off the log, these I have to slide off, then slide back on to resaw. They can be hundreds of lbs. each. The bandmill has higher operating costs than a splitter. You still need to cut all the 4x4's to length. Fresh sawn lumber thats 'dead stacked' will mold really fast where the faces are together, unlike split wood that always lets air back through. Mold doesn't go over big these days if people are bringing it into their house. Probably something else I've missed too, but you get the idea? I'll stick with the 'old way' :bang:
