Tom, yes, go with Ron and Mark's suggestions. Are the beavers checking out to see were the trees that they cut down, went to. The deer are probably wondering where their forest went. Good to see you get started.

Nice new series of shots, Les (those with the trucks).
Tom, your engineering crew seems to know very well everything about wood and the cutting of it.

Danby Sawmill:

Does anyone have the Danby O Scale sawmill who would be kind enough to post a couple pictures of the vertical boiler showing the details of the injector and piping.

I am a little foggy how this goes together ...

Hi Tom --

Some photos on the Western Scale Models site might be helpful:

Les; vertical boiler - Danby Sawmill Kit

Dallas: looks like it may help.

I am rushing out the door to catch the afternoon walleye fishing. I'll check in later.

Thought I'd better post something to let you know some progress is being made on the Danby Sawmill.

I have some what finished the machinery. Need to complete the painting and weathering and glue in place.

I have the walls framed and will board them up tomorrow with the roofs to follow.

For a kit, this project has turned into a scratch build. The materials supplied are good however the directions and diagrams poor with no pictures for reference.

Once I got my head around the problems, moved forward as a semi scratch build, I must say I am enjoying myself.

I will try and post pictures tomorrow ......

Hi Tom

I have to say, now that I think back on the Danby construction, that's pretty much the way it went for me too. I kept changing a little thing here and there until I ended up with a model that fit my idea of what I wanted.

Looking forward to your photos!

Here is a couple of pictures of the saw mill:



I am gluing up the front beams. It will be an open concept so one can see the inside of the mill. The plans called for a boarded front.



Lots of details to add ......

The JV kit is partial scratch too, Tom....
I think they might all be that way.
Western scale vertical boiler...I have one....
That's what I would recommend.

Good progress, Tom. The mill looks quite small. What's the overall size?
