WMSTR Annual Meeting
Don't forget the Annual Meeting this weekend in Hawley!
With the help from Jeff, Kyle, and Henry we put the engine back together yesterday. Few more parts to put on and some new pipe and we will be steaming soon. We are planning on having it running for the MSEA meeting on May 12.
Saturday at Lund's was a great day. Three steam engines with new boilers, good weather, good food and friends.
The Lange engine ran well. Compliments need to be given to Jeff and to the Lange family for a job well done. The paint on the smoke stack did not stand up to the task, but we were working the engine pretty hard.
Well this thread is a little old but since Rollag was the first big test for the new boiler, I wanted to put something out here. The power difference on the saw was great and both work and fuel was less than the old boiler. When you get all that steel hot it doesn't take much to keep it there. It was fun to run and after a few adjustments to things we were running full steam. Sunday we sawed from 9a.m. till 4 p.m. thats alot of walking sticks!!!!! I want to thank Mark for stopping and talking to us, it was nice to see the President up on the hill talking to everyone, its been a long time since that has been done. Thanks again Jeff, the boiler is everything I expected it to be and more. Heres to the next 50 years on the sawmill!!!!
