Pagination or Media Count:
The Best Opening Face BOF computer sawing program has been used to compare yield differences between four sawing systems with centered patterns and three systems where the pattern can be offset from the log center. The comparisons were made for softwood logs in the size range of 5.2- to 20.6-inch diameter, 8- to 24-foot length, and 1- to 5-inch taper per 16 feet. Results of these comparisons have been published in Research Paper FPL 321, A Look at Centered Vs. Offset Sawing. This supplement of tables represents the complete data which formed the basis for FPL 321. To best utilize the tables herein, it is recommended that the publications FPL 321, FPL 280, and the FPL 280 Supplement all be obtained first and read carefully.
