I found this cool video of a dude making some neat stuff using his water mill powered woodshop. I thought the lumberjocks crowd might like it. I have no connection to the film in any way. A random find.

That was great. Thanks.

Turns out that’s about 25 miles from my house. I’ve driven all around it but never knew it was there. A non-profit runs it now and is in the process of restoring it.

Here’s a link to the youtube video of construction of the new penstock

That’s a fine bit of research there PH! However, I am concerned that soon you will no longer need my googling services.
