Driving Me Bananas
I was set up to take the first slab off, but when I started the cut it pinched hard, slowing the bandsaw right down until, it was smoking with the fricton . But after thumping in a wedge it was free ,this happens now and then but todays problem log was a wind blown tree. How do I know this through many years of problem logs! The ends of the log won't reveal much if there's dirt and dust but when its clean and first cut this would be more apparent. When the first slab fall's away if its a wind blown tree a dark line of moisture will show up along one edge.
