Empirical Log Rules and the Allocation of Sawing Time to Log Size
Abstract:Detailed observation on the volume of lumber actually manufactured from the individual sawlog is shown to be superfluous for the two principal objectives of complete mill-scale investigations. The comparison of log scale with mill tally on the one hand, and the time-cost of sawing with respect to sawlog dimension on the other, are both contained in a sequence of workingday totals of log consumption, lumber production, and running time of the sawmill in question.
