How do they fold the blade in thirds?

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

I would have to cut a hole in the roof to get it in my shop.

Herb, there's a mill south of you, in OR, that my wife and I were invited to tour. Their band saw takes a four story building to accommodate it. We watched some monsterous logs being milled. Slabbed off four sides then cut the boards out. All the turning of the logs was done automatically. The blade was at least 12" wide. Their sharpening shop was a sight to behold.
