No, I do not scan for metal/nails. I only saw customer's logs and I provide two metal scanners if they choose to use them. If I hit metal it cost the customer $30 for the blade so it is their responsibility to provide metal free logs. It is very rare to strike metal so the time spent scanning is basically wasted time.Do you check your logs with a metal detector before sawing?
I sawed these logs today..
And got 2533 board feet of 2X4, 6, & 8 framing lumber plus 14, 4X4's. It was a good day.
