When you are talking about overruns with a bandsaw {orginal question in the Bandsaw Question} what are you talking about?

Logs are bought and sold using a measurer known as a scale rule or stick, be it doyle, scribner, international quarter inch, etc.  These estimate the amount of lumber in the log before it is sawed.  If you get more lumber out than estimated by the scale, you are "over scale" and have overrun.

When i've checked, I usually run about 20% over scale, seldom less that 10% over and occasionally on select logs I get up to 50% overrun.  The best I've ever noticed was 100% over scale, but that is very rare and requires just the rightr product out of the perfect log for that product.
