Recently you read about machine number 1, the radial arm saw. When Rodrigo and Dave are done with machine 1, they send those pieces off to our straight line rip saw where they receive those perfect glue edges! This saw is used to process all wood and create wood panels. And in order to make a perfect wood panel, you must have the perfect glue edges. This machine is the one capable.
Our straight line rip saw was born in the 50's like many of our trusted, old machines. It is heavy and solid, weighing roughly 7,000 pounds! The massiveness makes for a great cut with no vibration. We've had the machine for 2 years and bought it from a door shop who used it for 20 years before that. There's no telling where it was during the 80's but we love to create stories and wonder about its history.
