Rip sawing crating

Following on in the process from the logging and plank cutting (still ongoing) is the rip sawing of the off-cuts into smaller pieces know as crating approx 20mm x 76mm. Grade A – two good sides, more or less no bark. Grade B = one goodish side only.

The oil drum is part of the cooling water circuit for the diesel engine. From the bow in the belt drive you can see that the saw is pushed until it almost stalls and smoke pours form the engine! Nothing you can do.
