I think that is in case you made a mistake and you can back up.

I watched a video recently (somewhere) and the sawing is intentionally both directions. More efficient that way; log goes through and gets sliced, then moves over an inch or two and gets sliced going back; I canít remember if the log moves back and forth or the saw moves.

I own a Wood-Mizer LT 15 and would love a band that cuts both ways. My wife and I just finished milling around 35 (approx. 650sq') trees off our property that will soon be a deck. It's a lot of work and can be fun but it's still a lot of work. With a saw blade that cuts both directions it would have cut out time in half.

It might make me a little nervous trimming pen blanks with that.
