The new Octagon-Beam attachment simply bolts onto the sawmill bed rail (2 units required. More may be needed depending on cant length and thickness). Square cants are placed inside and secured with the included clamp. Depending on the final shape required and the size of the cant, the sawmill head is lowered to the correct position and cuts off one corner of the cant. The cant is turned 90 degrees, and the process is continued three additional times, removing the four corners to produce the octagon-shaped beam.
This simple attachment will provide sawmillers extra variety in the types of final products available to customers, without a large investment in an additional machine.
