Topic tags/keywords: question

I know someone out there is looking for an old sawmill to set up at a historical park or anual show. I just wish I could get my information to them. The sawmill on my Dad’s sale is fully restored and could be converted back to running with a flat belt from an engine or steam tractor. If I wasn’t so chalenged when it came to computers I might be able to figure out how to link to the video. I’ll keep trying but for now here is the best I can do. Start by going to the Auctioneers sight and finding the “youtube” icon and clicking on it; then scrole down and you will see a picture of the mill – click on that and you should be able to watch the video. This mill is on the same aution I wrote about a few days ago in my blog.

Try All I did was left click on the name to darken it, right click and hit copy, then I started
this thread, hit right click and paste and there it is. When you get to the site,Stationary Sawmill. I did the same thing on the sawmill, but it did not seem
too work as good. The you tube section takes a long time to load. Hope this will help you.

Wow…. This is an old thread, but that sawmill sold for $1000.00. It was not garbage. Unbelievable.

I suppose the problem was the lack of portability, and the needed man hours and equipment to relocate it, onto a new, permanent, enclosed, ready to go site. This surely narrowed the potential market.

Those mills were designed to move from 1 wood lot to the next. Everything of the husk, carriage, and ways is bolted together. But you normally slide them on a flat wagon or truck in sections to transport. Posts dug in below frost and shims on top to level. When you’ve made a couple sets you can set up pretty fast. The mill prob. didn’t bring any more because it was a left hand set. The carriage ran to the sawyers left side. A right hand set should have brought more.
