Abstract : Woodworking machines are made to do a wide variety of jobs. For any one job there are usually a number of makes, sizes, and styles of machines from which to choose. They are not standardized. Only a brief classification and outline of specifications for fairly typical machines of the more important types is attempted. Small light machines of the home workshop size are not included. Woodworking machines may be divided into three broad classes based on function: sawmill, planing mill, and industrial plant machinery. The function of sawmill machinery is to cut the log into rough, green lumber. The planing mill takes the rough lumber (usually dry), and prepares it for general construction uses, such as flooring, siding, shiplap, or framing. The industrial plant cuts up lumber and makes it into doors, furniture, boxes, or other fabricated products. (Author)
