Douglas Shaving Mill 840 (4 Cutter-heads)

Douglas Shaving Mill 1040 (6 Cutter-heads)

Douglas Shaving Mill 1240 (8 Cutter-heads)

THE BOX IS STATIONARY, 8’ X 40” WIDE.  OUR MACHINE HAS 12 BLADES VERSUS 8 OR 10 BLADES AS WITH OTHER MACHINES, WHICH INCREASES PRODUCTION BY 20% TO 50%.  OUR HEAD JOURNALS ARE OVERSIZED; THEY’RE 3-15/16 inches DIAMETER VERSUS THE USUAL 2-15/16 inches DIAMETER, WHICH REDUCES VIBRATION IN THE BLADES, FURTHERMORE INCREASING BLADE LIFE.  OUR HEADS ARE RIGID MOUNTED.  INSTEAD OF RAISING AND LOWERING THE HEADS ON STUDS, YOU RAISE AND LOWER THE FLOOR, CAUSING LESS VIBRATION, AND INCREASES BLADE LIFE.
CUTTER HEAD BEARINGS ARE 3-15/16, RATED 3200 RPM WITH GREASE AND 4000 RPM WITH OIL.  WE RECOMMEND HEAD SPEEDS BETWEEN 2150 RPM AND 2750 RPM.
THE PITMAN ARM HAS A SHORT STROKE INSTEAD OF LONG STROKE, AS IN MOST OTHER MACHINES.  WHEN YOU HAVE JUST 2 HEADS WITH A LONG STROKE, THE BACK HEAD IS JUST FOLLOWING THE 1ST HEAD, WHERE THE LOG HAS ALREADY BEEN CUT UNTIL IT GETS TO THE END OF THE LOG, LOSING APPROXIMATELY 40% CUTTING.  WHEN THE 2ND, 3RD, AND 4TH HEADS GET TO THE ONE IN FRONT, THE LOG COMES DOWN AND STARTS A NEW CUT.  SO AS A RESULT, THERE’S NOT WASTED FOLLOWING TIME WITH THE HEADS.
CHANGING BLADES IS EASY WITH OUR MACHINE.  YOU JUST REMOVE 1 PIN AND 1 END PLATE AND ROLL CARRIAGE OUT FROM UNDER THE BOX, ONTO TRACK, GIVING YOU THE ROOF HEIGHT AND WALL WIDTH TO CHANGE THE BLADES.
OUR TRACK ROLLERS ARE PRECISION GROUND AND HARDENED WHEELS; INSTEAD OF THE CHEAP CAST IRON ONES, PREVENTING HAVING TO REPLACE THEM EVERY 3 TO 6 MONTHS.
OUR MACHINE AND TRACK IS A 1 PIECE UNIT.  IT COMES READY TO INSTALL AND WIRE.  WE FURNISH THE 4 – 50 HP MOTORS, THE HEAVY DUTY GEAR BOX AND 10 HP MOTOR FOR THE PITMAN ARM.  WE DON’T FURNISH CONTROL BOXES AND WIRING DUE TO DIFFERENCES IN THE WAY CUSTOMERS WIRE THE MACHINE.   THE 6 HEAD MACHINE REQUIRES 600 AMP, 440/3 PHASE POWER CONTROL PANEL.
WE’VE RECEIVED REMARKABLE RESPONSE FROM PRIOR CUSTOMERS, ABOUT THE OVERALL PERFORMANCE OF OUR MACHINE.  WE’VE BEEN TOLD BY DOUGLAS SHAVING MILL OWNERS; OUR MACHINE WAS THE BEST MACHINE ON THE MARKET TODAY.
