Get YM88 Up to Speed
« on: Mon, 18 October 2021, 05:26:36 »
So, haven’t been on GH for years. Who can catch me up the quickest? What hot? What’s not? Who’s still funny, who’s still grumpy. Is TP4 still TP4?

Of course, that is one thing that doesn't change.
But no matter how much smoking-gun evidence Cheney and the January 6 committee uncover, the Fox News crowd and YouTube rabbitholers are dead to the factual world. Their views will never change, and roughly two-thirds of them are still convinced Trump was the rightful winner in 2020, despite his year-long drought of producing a single shred of evidence to back his claim. Frankly, Cheney doesn't have the luxury of time to waste on a bunch of brain dead zombies.
Instead, Cheney made her goals perfectly clear this week, signaling that the committee would produce the evidence necessary to find Trump, and perhaps several of his co-conspirators, criminally liable for violating felony statute 18 U.S. Code § 1512. To that end, Cheney used every public platform available to her this week to lay the groundwork for her case.

It is after all almost impossible to maintain control of the many variables at play in any given situation without a constant. TP4 can be constant for all of us

In the old days, saw mills cut logs into "rough" lumber, wherein a "2x4" board was actually 2" tall and 4" wide and not very pretty. Later on, after it had dried out a bit (and usually done a bit of twisting) during transport and storage at the lumber yard, many customers wanted it "dressed" so about 1/4" was planed off of each face to make them clean and smooth. Thus the nominal "2x4" was whittled down to an actual 1-1/2" by 3-1/2" that we see today.

Larger timbers lost even more, today a "2x10" is only 9-1/4" wide. And since "1x" lumber is thinner they only planed off 1/8" from each side and actual thickness is 3/4"

Obviously, that was back in the old days. Today lumber is only cut once so those nominal sizes really just give sawmills a bonus.

Generally in the US if you request "rough cut" lumber you do get the full size, but that is uncommon in general building projects. It is more common in specialty construction such as outdoor pergolas or fences.

Correct. We get full sized logs, bark on and slash them into 8 foot logs then run them through debarking machines. The logs are then sorted by thickness and run through a couple of 2 story tall band saws to turn them into cants which are just logs with the sides cut off.

They are then scanned through some lasers which tell the next sets of saws how many pieces of lumber are in the log and where to cut. Larger logs will have a bit of everything from 1x3 up to a 2x6. The boards are then scanned again, trimmed to length and sorted by dimension. They are then stacked, steam kiln dried and run through our planing mill to dress them as you mentioned. We process around 200,000 FBM every 8 hours.

Everything else gets chipped and used for our attached paper mill.

Our bark and sawdust is then burned at the boiler house to power the paper mill and heat all the buildings in the winter. So very little waste.

That is a narrow range. Do you ever do larger boards (~2x12) or large timbers like 4x12?

We are a stud mill. We use the 1x stuff as laths between rows of rough green lumber for proper airflow in our kilns. We make 6’, 7’ and 8’ as well as 92 5/8”. We only dress 2x lumber. Everything in our mill is set up for a maximum of 8’ length
