Today I visited the annual Threshing Bee hosted by the Northern Illinois Steam Power Club. Lots of steam powered tractors, gas tractors, gas engines, flea market, military display and a saw mill.
Since this is Lumber Jocks, I thought I would share some pics of the saw mill. They will saw your logs (you have to pre-arrange this) and use just steam power to do so! Using belts connected to the PTO of these massive tractors, logs are reduced to boards in no time.
