To make smooth cuts and prolong the life of your sawmill blades, your bands need regular tune-ups. 

The easiest, and most cost-effective, way to maintain your band blades is to invest in your own blade-optimization equipment – precisely-engineered sharpening and setting machines.

With the right equipment, tuning-up band blades is easy.  It’ll also save you money 3 ways: maximize your lumber yield and quality, extend blade life, and save you the high-prices charged by sharpening services.  And, because you’re taking charge of your own sawmill blades, you know, with absolute confidence, that they’re done right.

Norwood’s been designing and making precision-blade maintenance equipment for over 20 years. Every critical component is made with state-of-the-art CNC machines at our high-tech machining facility and zinc-dichromate-plated for years of worry-free operation.
