Steam Saw ~ by WoodlandsTV

By woodlandstv

Slow connection? Watch in lower quality

Peter Brown takes his agricultural saw - driven by steam engine - a showman`s living van and water bowser to work at Westonbirt`s `Treefest`, picking up water from brooks and streams as they go. Here he tells us how the business has run in his family for generations - from his grandfather, to his father and now to Peter and his son. The 1920 steam saw cuts timber via a system of levers and pulley wheels, all powered by the 1897 engine.

Reruns? Already?

It is a pity there was not more information about how the saw was used. Such as how the log was loaded, how the log was moved across a specific distance for each cut, and how the used to quarter saw for best quality wood.
