Use of Odd Lengths.
Tlic investigation carried on Inst
year ly the U. S. Department of
Agriculture, cooperating with lum
ber manufacturers in the South, to
determine the saving that can be ef
fected by using odd lengths of lum
ber as well as even, has begun to
bcvs fruit. That investigation showed
that a material saving was practic
able, and at a recent meeting1 of a
southern lumber manufacturers as
sociation the fact was brought out
that a begining has been made in
putting the new plan inU practice,
and that an increase in the sale of
odd lenghts is anticipated for the
" It was formerly the custom, and
generally is so still, to sell lumber in
even lengths only. Wasto resulted
from cutting off the ends of odd
lengths to make them even.
A considerable percentage of a
sawmill's output is defective.
That is, boards have had knots,
decayed spots, or split ends, and the
defective parts are cut out. To make
an even length of what remains, it
is often necessary to cut off a foot of
good -wood with the bad, and it is
wasted. The practice of marketing
odd lengths as well as even is meant
to lesson this waste. The sale of
odd lengths of lumber will frequently
lesson waste in the woods also; for
example, a log may be cut fifteen
feet long which, following the old
custom, would be cut only fourteen,
and the extra foot would be left in
the woods. - '
The introduction of odd lengths
meets with opposition from many
builders who are prejudiced in favor
of even lengths simply because they
have never used any other kind.
Nevertheless, there are many places
in which odd lengths are more econ
omical than even ones for instance,
where nine-foot studding is used.
Following former custom, the ends
must be cut from even lengths to
make the timbers fit. Some manu
facturers of flooring successfully sell
odd and even lengths, thus lessen-H
ing waste in the woods, at the mill,
and in the construction of buildings.
