Red Gum Milling Demonstrations SAT 23rd APRIL - BARKER STREET
Come along and see a timber sawmill hard at work!. OPERATING AT VARIOUS TIMES THROUGHOUT THE DAY (you might hear it before you see it!)
The Lucas Mill While there are many portable timber sawmills in operation today, the demonstration during the festival will be undertaken using the well known 'Lucas Mill'. The Lucas Portable Timber Sawmill provides the convenience of taking the mill to the timber rather than having to cart logs to a fixed site. The mill can be assembled, disassembled and transported to any location by one operator and offers circular saw operation from 6" up to 10" to convert round timber to hewn posts and boards. The provision for slabbing table tops is available using a chain saw attachment, as such the Lucas Mill has become popular for low volume commercial and private operations.
