By Chase Warner, Wood-Mizer
Wood-Mizer introduces the EG100 twin blade board edger designed for sawyers looking for a low cost, highly durable edger to improve overall production and efficiency by edging sideboards and slabs. The EG100 twin blade edger joins the Wood-Mizer range of professional edgers that includes the EG50 manual feed single blade and EG200 twin blade power feed edgers as well as industrial and TITAN industrial edgers.
Available in 14HP gas or 10HP (7.5kW) electric power, the EG100 edger is generally operated by two people, one to feed the edger and the other to remove the finished boards. With one adjustable and one fixed 10” (254mm) diameter carbide-tipped circular blades, the EG100 can edge up to 20 ½” (520mm) wide flitches into a 12” (300mm) wide finished board with a maximum thickness of 2” (50mm).
