    With the show being over now I thought there would be pictures and video starting to appear. Here is a short video of the Sunday afternoon shift at the Thick and Thin Sawmill. Knutson's 20 Minneapolis teamed up the Dillon's 16 Advance. We had a good afternoon of sawing

    Thanks for sharing Darren! I know folks enjoy seeing material posted here, but we seem to have trouble convincing people to post here. Maybe it is too confusing for some. I know a lot ends up on Facebook and other social media sites.

    Clayton is really getting the hang of the Sawyer job! Moving fast enough to keep his help from getting bored... and keep fireman on their toes!

    Thanks again for taking the time to share your video here!

    Yes it did go very well. Once we got the Advance governor to cooperate I think the two engines work well together. Like you said another year come and gone it was a blur for me again.

    Here is one that shows that Jeff actually does operate his own equipment. Monday morning Jeff Knutson fired on his 1899 Return Flue Minneapolis that had only a few days earlier been down with a cylinder problem. A new piston rod was installed in the campground and the engine was up and running for most of the show. In this clip they are sawing in tandem with Osten's 22 direct flue Minneapolis.
