These methods are okay for a certain log size and straightness, using a certain thickness saw blade. I should just have my own rules on how to measure logs and convert them to footage?
It is approximately as accurate with smaller logs as with larger logs. In any case, the diameter measurements are supposed to represent a cone; butt swell, dipsy-doodles, or other small weird protuberances or depressions would be ignored. Or if there is a bad defect on one side, the scaled footage can be reduced proportionately.With such a procedure, the log rule will have the word “decimal” added to it.
There are some people who believe that such a complicated scaling system for logs should be made easier. In other words, 10, 000 cubic meters of pulpwood logs will have very little board footage compared to 10, 000 cubic meters of 20″ diameter and larger logs. The numbers are located on the stick at the spot that represents the diameter for that number. The stick is held up to the end of the log (running across the log measuring the diameter) with one end of the stick at the edge of the bark and wood. Another way to determine the answer would be to get a bunch of logs that are all the same size (as close as possible) and then saw these logs into lumber and measure the output.I should just give the correct footage answer but pay less for smaller logs?
The fact is that all of the above methods have been used to measure logs. Its estimates are based on fitting rectangles into a circle. Many rules will stipulate that the diameters are measured to the closest inch, and if the average of two diameters is exactly on the half, round up once and then round down the next time. The log length is the length to the last full foot (especially for hardwood logs); do not round up to the next foot. For gentle sweep (or crook), there are tables that indicate how much to deduct from the scaled answer. The way to do that is to measure the diameter at both ends of the log and also the actual length. This is a piece of wood (about 1/4 inch thick and 1-1/2 inches wide) that has the footage numbers printed on the stick. Where the bark and wood cross the other end of the stick, the appropriate number scale is read to determine the footage.
Amazon: KitchenAid KSB465WH 4 Speed Countertop Blender With 48 Ounce Polycarbonate Jar by amazon.com
Heat resistant unique pitcher (with graduated measurements on the side) allows you to blend hot or cold ingredients and the contours makes pouring easy.
Everything else in the dishwasher would be clean, but gunk would be stuck on this rubbery lid. The lightweight jar is strong and easily cleaned with just a bit of soap and water and a sponge (nothing to take apart). The powerful motor blends ice and frozen fruit drinks easily with excellent results (put in juice/water before blending). It is loud on the highest setting and vibrates the plastic jar making noise, but not too bad. The buttons on the front have begun to cave in and collapse but are still working for now. It is scratch, stain, and shatter-resistant and will last for years to come. Clean touch control pad is easy to clean and light on your fingers. Only if you are mixing something extremely thick, whenever you start the unit it is going to splash the ingredients clear to the cover. It happened on my first week, during a first test with water. I did put this carafe in the dishwasher and maybe that is what caused the leaking around the blade/gear at the bottom of the carafe. The blender mixes the smoothie very smooth without the drink being chunking at all. I would recommed this to anyone in the market for a great blender. I mostly make smoothies with it out of frozen fruit, yogurt and juice.
