WM1000 thin kerf headrig – will saw a 67″ log down the center

WM1000 With level

Our initial post a few months ago indicated that Wood-Mizer has came out with a thin kerf bandsaw that would cut a 60″ log down the center. We were incorrect. This saw will actually split a 67″ log down the center. It is proving to be perfect for breaking down those big logs while using thin kerf technology, as well as well as a slabbing mill. Check out some of the pics below;

To answer the question we have had by some, “how accurate is it?”

We have put a level on the sawn product, and the verdict – no daylight can be seen.

In both pics we are sawing a Eucalyptus log.
