Description EG50 Single Blade Board Edger

The HR130 is an entry-level horizontal resaw with an innovative design that efficiently resaws cants into extremely accurate lumber, siding, and more. With a large 16" x 12" cant capacity and optional setworks, the HR130 is electric-powered and runs on all electrical drives which eliminates the need for hydraulics. Designed for hobbyists and professionals, the ability to efficiently recover slabs, process cants, and create lap siding makes the HR130 horizontal resaw a perfect addition for anyone who wants to get the most out of their sawn material or expand their product offering.

Operation

Electric-powered up/down controls ensure accurate height positioning of the resaw head when setting cut thickness. Optional setworks in imperial and metric allow for eight thickness presets for quick head height adjustments. Once the head is adjusted for the cut, the blade is engaged for resawing material into two pieces with each pass. Cants and boards up to 16" wide and 12" high are placed on the rubber belt conveyor with a variable feed adjustment from 0 - 85 feet per minute for optimal processing of various sized and type of material. A hold-down roller keeps material secure as it moves through the machine. For additional processing, material is returned to the conveyor and fed through the resaw until finished. An optional manual return system with three roller tables or a powered board return system assist with material flow when additional processing of material is required. The conveyor belt is easily adjusted and can be positioned at 0°, 2°, 4°, 6°, or 8° in order to produce straight cut boards or angled siding. An optional shingle conveyor belt can be added to make shingles up to 18” long. With two sets of stop blocks on the belt, one end of the material is placed on the blocks while the other end is placed on the conveyor belt to create an angled cut for wood shingles.

Increase production and profits by turning flitches, sideboards, and slabs into clean square-edged lumber with a board edger. The EG50 is an entry-level single blade lumber edger designed for sawyers who want to maximize the value of every board while minimizing investment. Edging boards one at a time maximizes the value of every board rather than sacrificing usable lumber by gang edging boards on a sawmill. Also save production time by edging boards all in-line without having to set them down and pick them up again.

Operation

A simple pull handle adjusts to any board width in 1/8” increments up to 12” wide. Once the board width is set, flitches, sideboards, and slabs with wane or bark are fed manually through the edger blade. The 10” (254mm) diameter carbide-tipped blade removes one side of the board at a time. For boards that need both sides edged, the material is sent through the edger blade again to square the opposite side of the board. Square-edged boards can also be resized by feeding material through the single edger blade. The EG50 can produce up to a 12” wide square-edged finished board with a maximum board thickness of 2-1/2”.

Features

  • 12” max board width and 2-1/4” max board thickness
  • 0 to 100 feet per minute variable feed rate
  • Powered head height adjustment
  • 0° to 8° degree tilting resaw head in 2° increments 
  • Built in the USA

 

The EG50 single blade board edger ships on a single pallet and requires minimal assembly. With a 2-year warranty, the EG50 is backed by the same level of service, quality and safety features shared by the entire family of Wood-Mizer wood processing equipment.
