It took a few years to find them both


A blurry photo of me with a beard in my younger days, 3 logs from one tree; early 80s. Hence my love of Sawmills.

Very Nice Walter! I think you need to take their picture next to a familiar item, I don't think everyone realizes how big these pieces are.

Do yours both work properly? I can get my log to go one way, but then it gets stuck there and doesn't return to where it started.

Thanks for comments Folk;
The logging was taking place on the Mount Windsor Tablelands Petri, the activity was curtailed in the late 1980s and I needed to find a new occupation.

Some history on the subject for bedside reading here:

Here you are Nick, I found a moment to take another photo to show the workings of the Sawmills (and the size beside Mamod logs).
They do both work; the log is propelled back and forth by a peg on the chain being in a wire loop on the log.
I think that if the wire loop is misaligned or broken they would not function correctly.

I can send more photos if needed.

I have the log waggon. Those are grande mills

I read the article you show.
What many greens don't understand is that the best care for a forrest is to maintain it by proper cropping and maintenance.

A forrest outgrows itself at times and if no natural event crops it, ie. forest fires or such, it will suffocate itself. It needs constant renewal to be healthy and maintain full biodiversity and a full set of healthy biotopes.

Since we stop the natural events we do do good by contributing to the circulation ourselves.

Now clean cutting everything that grows is not it but to crop certainly is.

What great models, they are superb!
Quite coincidentally I saw that this Marklin logging mill popped up on ebay last night - and thought, wow, that is quite a lot over my budget!!!

And my budget also; but I like it very much.

P.S. Also agree with Petri about 'Selective' logging and clear felling.
The Green Movement used photos of 'Clear Felling' to bolster their argument against logging. Clear Felling in this country only happens in plantations or where plantations are to be installed.
