Bandsaw

Greg loads the ice onto the Band Saw
Tilt the block back
Slide the block back near the blade & tilt the table back to upright
Load another block & set the band saw to the desired height
Start the Band Saw & push through the ice
Turn the slabs sideways (so they don’t stick)
Tilt the slabs off the table onto a padded dollie
Reset the height of the band saw & cut again
Tilt the slabs off the table onto a padded dollie
The remaining 1.5″ of ice goes in the scrap bin to melt.
We start with 9.5″ thick ice & make cuts at 5.5″ & 1.5″
This allows us to get two 4″ slabs from our blocks with the worst core lines. The 1.5″ gets wasted.
With our volume, a band saw is a necessity.
