The Wood-Mizer Difference - Part 2: The History behind the first Portable Band Sawmill
In 1978, the two inventors of the first portable band sawmill, Don Laskowski and Dan Tekulve, joined forces to manufacture their wood-working products. These inventions soon provided enough capital to develop and sell the Laskowski/Tekulve brainchild —a thin-kerf portable sawmill. With this innovation in 1982, the partners made converting logs to lumber a safe, one-person job, and Wood-Mizer was born.

The Wood-Mizer Difference - Part 3: The Thin Kerf Sawmill Revolution
Another new introduction to the portable sawmill industry by Wood-Mizer was the use of thin blades to cut lumber. This is called thin-kerf, kerf being the amount of wood removed by the blade. Conventional circular mills use thick blades that remove up to a quarter inch of wood every pass. Wood-Mizer ultilizes blades that only remove less than 1/10th of an inch. A Wood-Mizer sawmill will produce (on average) about 20% more boards per log than circle mills, giving you more product from your log supply.
