DescriptionNortheastern sawmill operators have been eyeing the sash gangsaw mill with new interest in the past few years. This type of mill, which cuts a whole log or cant at one time by means of a number of straight saws set in a sash frame that moves up and down, was rather common in the Northeast around the turn of the century.
