Old Stenner mill

 But can i just remind some of you the stenner saw in question has a bit of age about it and when we look back engineering at this time was at the top of its game and most items from this era where vastly over engineered and thats why its still here, the saw i worked with is still milling timber today ok not every day but it will be cutting 20 tonne a week on a part time basis,

very good to hear the saw is still working. My day was spent resawing boards on a 48 and id expect it to last forever too! you cannot compare modern narrow band against a production wide band mill

They are reasonably simple machines mark. What exactly can't you sort on it?

Yes the guy who owns it now has done for 30 yrs or more but he is now in his 70s and only uses it part time, and it will last a lot longer yet but Its like every thing from that era it was vastly over engineered and built to last, i have a Mcconell towable saw bench with twin cylinder Petter diesel on it and according to engine number it was built in April 1953, some say its a dangerous looking thing but its only as dangerous as the oparator using it, it gets bearings greased up now n then along with a oil change, and i cut a hell of a lot of firewood on that saw and i expect it to out last me, we can not compare any thing that is built today to any thing from that engineering era of the 2 decades that followed WW2,

I see it's gone from ebay now - didn't make the reserve, but apparently it's either lost or broken.  Well, the guy said it's working fine, so he must have lost it.  Pretty easy to do, I guess - I'm always losing stuff...
