The heavy steel arms—operated by steam cylinders—can throw a six-foot diameter, eighty-foot-long log. The first cut removes mostly wane—the round and bark-covered edge of the log. The movement of the carriage is controlled by the sawyer.
At the extreme right side of the photograph (below), the next log is held by the cradle. log (see photo, right) is carefully rolled and positioned in the carriage prior to making the first cut.
