May 4, 2018 - File Week 2018 wraps today after five full days of coverage focused on new technology and processes for the file room, as well as strategies for filers to continue advancing their skills. Here’s a snapshot of what we learned from the featured articles, videos and columns.
May 4, 2018 - It is no longer just a man’s world, it’s our world too! As a female breaking into the sawfiling trade, I often face odd looks of surprise when asked about my occupation. The fact is women are just as capable as men in all aspects of the trade.
May 2, 2018 - In an ideal world, it would be a joy to come to work knowing that all your co-workers were on the same page. You would all agree on what your daily objective was and would work together to achieve it. There would be no petty jealousies, no power struggles and no bad attitudes. In short, it would be a delight. Unfortunately, no such workplace exists or at least if it does, I have never heard of it.
May 1, 2018 - “A Few Good Filers” could be the title of a blockbuster film coming to a sawmill near you! I kid of course, as there is no movie. It is however a phrase that I feel aptly sums up the plight of our trade. There are fewer and fewer good filers left out there, as we transition away from the old guard and usher in a new era of youthful exuberance.
April 30, 2018 - Matt Williams, president and CEO of Williams & White, introduces the German-manufactured Kohlbacher Shark 3000 profile grinder to the North American market at the BC Saw Filers Association 2018 convention in Kamloops, B.C. 
April 30, 2018 - More than 30 saw filing vendors filled 60 booths at the Coast Kamloops Hotel & Conference Centre in Kamloops, B.C., April 26-28, to show off their newest machinery for filing rooms.
April 30, 2018 - Josh Bergen, co-owner of Precision Machinery (PGMR), introduces their newly launched Kaiser knife grinder, a fully automated system that loads up to 500 disposable canter knives. PGMR launched the product at the 2018 BC Saw Filers Association convention in Kamloops, B.C.
April 30, 2018 - The BC Saw Filers Association drew an impressive crowd of around 160 registrants to Kamloops, B.C., April 26-28 for what is being called the largest convention of its kind in North America. It’s an encouraging sign for the filers who gathered to discuss not only the latest technology for their trade, but the need to attract new talent.
March 26, 2018 - Canadian Forest Industries brings you the newest equipment for the filing room in this tech update all about saw filing.
March 29, 2018 - Call me biased, but I think out of all the variables and factors within a sawmill, those within the saw filing shop can make the most difference between a successful mill and one that struggles to keep up with its peers. Within the saw shop there is the issue of the saw filing team itself. Is the team progressive? Adaptable to change? Constructive? Part of the solution?
