|20140209212||LOG REST WITH RACK AND PINION SYSTEM - A new log support and clamp system (log rest) for a portable sawmill, having a log rest and a log dog. The log rest features a rack and pinion for adjusting a vertical position of the log rest using an actuation mechanism located on the operator's side of the portable sawmill, which improves the ability of the user to affix the log in place for sawing. Also, a portable sawmill having such a log rest.||07-31-2014|
|20140174603||PIVOT RATCHETING LOG DOG - A log dog having an elongate body that has a log dog first end, a log dog second end, a front face, a back face and side faces. A slot on the side faces extends from proximate the log dog first end to proximate the log dog second end. A row of spaced-apart teeth coupled to the body and defining setting notches adapted to enable movement of the log dog in one direction when the log dog is releasably-locked in position during operation. One or more projections can be coupled to the body proximate the log dog first end and protruding from the front face for engaging a log. Also disclosed are a log dog assembly, a log support and clamp assembly, a sawmill and a kit containing the log dog.||06-26-2014|
|20110247472||BANDWHEEL AND BLADE BRAKE SYSTEM - The present invention relates to a belt brake for a band saw such as a band saw on a sawmill utilized for sawing lumber.
