More on Sawmills

Most local sawmill workers must join the Lumber and Sawmill Workers Union. Positions in these companies include the Head Sawyer who operates the saw carriage that sends a log through the teeth of a saw. Head Sawyers are also responsible for picking out the highest grade lumbers. An Edgers job in a local sawmill is to see that boards are produced with parallel sides and they will remove the rounded bark edges a piece of wood comes through a head saw, sometimes using a chainsaw. Graders look at the lumber as it goes by on the conveyor belt, checking for any defects. If there is a split or a knot or an unwanted stain they will pull it of the run. Chain Offbearers remove lumber from the moving conveyor at various points. They also sort, slide and stack lumber into piles. Lumber Handling Equipment Operators or lift operators move logs and finished wood within the local saw mill using a fork lift and log lift. The Millwright is the local sawmill worker who makes sure all equipment is in working order and repair it if it isnt. Finally the general sawmill worker is trained to work any and all positions that need relief. They are the first ones on the job and clean the sawdust and wood bark from the day before. They also oil bearings and check the surfaces of all the equipment. Sometimes they will replace dull saws and inspect chainsaws before being put back into use. Local sawmills and lumber mills with new employees will usually start them out as a sawmill worker and promote them to Chain Offbearer, up to Head Sawyer as time progresses.
