Hi all,

I have been building a small sawmill to go on my HOn30 railroad/diorama "Regnans Tramway". The sawmill is based on Drain's sawmill located in Victoria, Australia. It is made from parts of the Keystone Danby Saw Mill, scratch timber stuff, etches & castings. The object at the bottom of the first two pictures is scratchbuilt lagged pipe I.E. Twine wrapped around wire and glued with Pliobond.
I am guided by two timber milling, steam engine and boiler enthusiasts; Peter Evans authour of "Rails To Rubicon" http://www.peterevans.com.au/ and John Dimitrievich A.K.A. “Professor Klyzlr”.

That's gonna be a awesome mill (well already is)! Having Professor Klyzlr in your corner can't hurt. I've learned allot just reading his articles...

Keep us all posted,

Rod,

I really like your photos and post about your saw mill equipment project!

I have been hoping over the past month since your intial post, that we'd see more.

As always, I am looking forward to what you are developing with it, as it is beautiful modeling.

Keep it up.
