Steam Powered Saw Mill

I looked closely at everyone's hands. No lost fingers so these
guys must be disciplined and focused on their work! However,
I did not see anyone wearing eye protection.

A fresh log is loaded onto the trolley.

One face of log has been cut to provide a flat surface for the
trolley's clamp.

Now we are starting to see boards!

This is the power plant for the saw mill. Stay clear of the belt!

In case you are wondering, these monster steam engines are placed on the side of the farmer's field
and pull the plow via a rope. They are far too heavy to drive onto the field. There is also not enough
power to both self propel the engine and pull anything else.
