Re: Big Slabs in an old sawmill building.

note: no information was provided on thickness. nor how one handled 6' wide lumber. I would need a picture to believe a 6' wide oak.

If water drips on oak off a tin roof there will be a black iron stain where the drips land.

I don't believe the bits through the roof story. I am quite familiar with circle mills that used insert bits and I don't see a mechanism to hurl them through a tin roof. The blades just don't spin that fast and they don't come out easily and I don't see any way they would come loose on the back side of the cut to be hurled upwards. They typically deflect when they hit a nail or whatever.
