    Great old Steam Powered Sawmill video

    The Philips Brothers Sawmill & Box company has been operating a steam powered operation for ~100 years. Here's a short video that shows it working. I really enjoyed it and hope you find it interesting!

    Being registered as a historic site might help with the OSHA stuff.

    That is amazing. Thanks for posting.

    There was a sawmill in the town I grew up in similar to this one, but was converted to electric driven in the 50's.

    That was awesome.
    I'd like to watch an OSHA inspector walk through that operation. His head would explode.

    I would bet that you would not have to move 25 boards to find one that is just useable in their stack. Unlike Homeless Depot, the lumber supermarket. I do suppose it is good cardio work out stacking and restacking the "Prime" banana boards, curved and twisted into unnatural shapes. The reward is a perfect board, only to find it has a crack on the other side. At this mill, this is called boiler fuel. Now this my friends is progress in the computer age.
