  • This old stuff fascinates me...............OT or no ???

    This video has flyballs governor, cranks, cams, and flywheels, it got engineering of its own kind, so I guess it is sorta related topic to this forum.
    fascinating to me,,,,,,,

          Here is another sawmill video, in this case an Amish one, cutting a huge maple. It's interesting that they used a diesel engine, while the non-Amish guys used wood-fired steam.



          This compilation is also interesting, showing various techniques, including two-man hand sawing:

              Ringo--It fascinates me also, and I am old enough to remember it. There were three separate sawmills in the village where I grew up in semi northern Ontario. One operated by steam engine, one by a water turbine, and one by a caterpillar diesel engine .---Brian

                  I remember a similar sawmill as a kid, but I remember it being diesel driven, and in that time frame probable a 6-71 Detroit.
                  When I was a kid the 6-71 was THE engine of industry.
                  BUT, here's the rub that I don't see;
                  if they were both similar size sawmill, and one has a 6-cylinder deisel, then how does that other steam mill keep up with it's single cylinder whereas the deisel has 6 cylinders?
                  Where does all the power of a steam engine come from? One cylinder does the work of six deisel cylinders???

                      What is the machine that was next in line after the mill in the first vid in the OP? I thought maybe a planer but I saw in another video that they have a different dedicated planer. It also didn’t look like it was trimming the edges for re-sawing.

                        I watched a steam powered sawmill that they run at the Oregon Steam up held late July and early August in Banks Oregon each year. Well worth the time. I haven't been to the Steam up for a few years, but after watching this video, it stirs me up to attend this year.

                          I think that was a width saw. For sawing common width.

                            That machine immediately behind the main saw is called an "edger". It trims the two "bark edges" off the board.

                              Edgier often has sliding saws you can adjust.
                              They also cut cants, which is like beam that is then cut into multiple boards. So say the saws are set at 2 inch, run the can't thru, and get 6 2 x 10 in one trip thru the edger. Or other sizes.
