Caption reads "Stock-gang with press roll raised to change saws. These rolls, operated by compressed air, can exert a pressure of many thousand pounds or may be instantly raised by the touch of a lever. Safety catches hold the roll in its raised position, protecting the saw [operator] from accident while changing the saw."
Caption reads "Front view of the big Johnson stock-gang. This machine has a capacity of one hundred thousand feet per nine hour day and saws up the smaller logs. The feed-in rolls are independently driven by a Dake engine controlled by the lever in the right hand of the operator. The logs are slabbed by a pair of twin circulars."
Caption reads "Side view of the big stock-gang showing the air cylinders operating the press-rolls. The conveyor chain in the foreground carries the slabs from the twin circulars and drops them on a transfer to the re-saw."
Caption reads "Westinghouse high-speed single acting engine driving the big stock-gang. This, with the Dake engines driving the feed-in and feed-out rolls, makes the stock-gang a complete unit which may be stripped and started independently of the saw mill."
Caption reads "Back of re-saw showing the feed-rolls and the sliding press roll. Both press rolls are operated by air cylinders. This re-saw turns out fifty thousand feet of perfectly sawn lumber in nine hours and contributes largely to the wonderful economy of the plant."
Caption reads "One of the four trimmer tables where the lumber is cut to length and graded. The stamp hammer shown just behind the saw on the left marks every piece of lumber with 'MLB.' In the foreground is the end of the conveyor that delivers the lumber to the sorting table."
Caption reads "View looking up the burner chain towards the burner. Formerly, this conveyor was kept busy, but this shows all the waste from two hundred thousand of lumber. Compare this with the slash saw picture."
