    What is really cool about the mill is that the whole shebang is steam powered.

    WOW! Thanks for posting - this will be a Sunday afternoon drive for me! The mill is actually located near Corvallis, Oregon (not Washington) http://www.bing.com/maps/explore/?or...qv0cdm8j5koff2

    It's hard to imagine how difficult it was to develop machinery of this size, and the technique and tools to sharpen that huge band saw blade.
