Well, if you had not sussed it out yet, I like all sorts of vintage stuff :roll: and I know a fair few people with all sorts of old gear :wink:
So for the steam driven racksaw man I did a bit of turning from a bit of scrap 12X5 (hammer)
























As you can see I may need to do a few more :shock:

I would try to get hold of some elm or something harder - your sawyer friend should be able to help?
Yes Phil, Elm would have been my preferred choice as it was for the originals, but as it is, this pine I used is rock hard and all we had to hand :wink:
When I turned it the sap content was so great the smell from it made me feel a bit wooosey :shock:

I've told him to hang onto some decent stuff when he gets it :idea: 8)

Nice job!
And good to see proof that that big old hunk of wood DID come in useful.

I wonder how many others on here keep a scythe handy beside the bench? :)

Strangely enough, one of my green woodworking friends is also many times champion scythe wielder, AND has just bought himself a sawmill, his is of metal construction and has been modified to be driven by tractor though.
