INML, buy a band saw and stop wasting everyone else time.

I’ve read…I don’t know how many posts/threads of yours with you acting like a know it all, obnoxious ass….but this one(not one of your worst) Kind of pushed me over.

I need some advise Dan.
I run a 35000 sq ft shop, with one section dedicated to doing, and achieving exactly what the op is wanting to achieve, producing high volume(although a much higher volume I’m sure), thin strips with absolute minimal cleanup and waste.
I’m running an SCM-M3 60 hp gang rip 14” full kerf blades(Royce//Ayr)...a 7 hp delta with a power feed running 10” Tenryu gold metal blades, and a dedicated Hitachi re-saw for tall ripping that the M3 can’t handle.(sorry, can’t afford a frame saw right now).
How can I tweak my operation? I’ve got 4 bandsaw’s in the shop now…..should I sell all of the above and and just buy another one?
Oh…I also have at my disposal, two scm-630 thickness planers and two 36” wide belt sanders (scm and timesaver) if that helps with your advice.
Looking forward…..
