Welcome to the forum. There are numerous ways, but I save pics to my computer and then upload the pics into My Gallery on this website. Hope this helps and wish you a blessed day.

Looks like they had a wreck the last it ran. Appears to be missing at least a few shoulders.

Not to disagree with Bill but it appears to be a Chase mill. Not saying it doesn't have some Lane parts, many of the mills in these parts are of mixed breed. The # 100 head blocks say Chase on them. The mill looks to be in decent shape, steel carriage on mine rails, does it come with an engine.?? Frank C.

Closer look of the first photos after seeing the later, it just looks like the solders were just being blocked from view.

Alex, what does the old boy want for it.?? If the saw is useable and the mill is complete no engine I would say between $500 and $1000 theirs not a huge demand for old hand set mill around here now. Frank C.
