Demonstration test for sawing of thinned small logs with portable sawmill


, : Demonstration test for sawing of thinned small logs with portable sawmill. Research Reports of the Forestry Research Institute Seoul ( 43): 22-27

A portable and mobile sawmill system is described, which uses gasoline or diesel fuel, with ability to cut logs up to 60 or 80cm in diameter. It is considered to be suitable for processing thinned logs in mountain forest areas of the Korea Republic, because of its portability, low cost equipment and maintenance. A 5-hp gasoline engine had a capacity of 2msuperscript 3 sawn timber a day and average lumber yields in the small log group ranged from 52% to 57% in a demonstration test.

Sawing ability, I, in cm/min [cm2/min?] is defined as the product of sawing depth, h, in cm and feed speed, v, in cm/min. The relationship of I and the spring constant, k, in kg/cm, of a circular saw was investigated. In sawing larch under stable...

The relationship of the net power required for sawing to (a) 'clearance angle' [from diagrams, apparently not clearance angle but angle of set?] and (b) face [front] bevel angle was studied. The optimum values of (a) and (b) with respect...
