Nice old mill, Don't see that type using a rip blade. Much older then the round blade type. Good thing our fore fathers and mother could come up with ways to make life better for them and us. Smart bunch for sure. Thanks for sharing the pictures!

My grandfather told me about 2 brothers in our area(Middle Tn.) that had a sawmill similar to that. It was so slow that they sawed in shifts to accomplish much. They claimed you could sit on the log being sawed and have time to eat your dinner. One cold night the brother doing the night shift wore a long overcoat. It was his habit to sit on the log being sawed. Dont ask me why but he did. On this particular night he fell asleep while sitting on the log! He was awakened by his coat being pulled. The combination of the log and the ovedcoat actually stopped the saw. He wasnt harmed but I always thought he was much more careful in the future. I was always thankful that my grandfather shared many of his early 1900s logging memories with me.
