Adding this option is an easy and
affordable way to make your own
roofing and siding materials. The SLR
accurately cuts wood shingles and
tapered lapsiding on your mill.
Used as a Shinglemaker
The SLR can make six wood shingles from 14" to 24" lengths by 12" wide in one pass. The frame holds six blocks that are all pivoted by one lever that can be adjusted to give you a precise taper. Since the blade always travels in a straight, horizontal line, you get precise wood shingles.
Used as a Lapsider
The SLR cuts weather board or lapsiding by pivoting beams or cants in the frame before each cut of the blade. A single lever pivots an entire cant to cut very accurate tapered siding. The taper angle is easily adjusted to cut boards up to 12" wide at various tapers.
