I have read, understand, and agree to the terms of posting an ad on the Forestry Forum.

My friend Jack in Georgia is manager / curator / administrator for Camp Sunrise, a Christian camp for kids and families. He's a highly ingenuitive fellow who has set up a miniature ridable railroad for the camp (I've ridden on it!) and he uses the camp, in addition to teaching about Christian principles, to also teach about American history. His train ride goes through many acres of woods, and has many displays showing people different aspects of American history, especially during the Great Depression.

Now Jack has gotten to the point where he would like to have an older sawmill for display, to show people one more historical aspect of labor and industry in the US. He could use a complete unit, or parts to build a convincing-looking mill for display purposes.

If anybody has anything they would like to contribute, just let me know. Also, depending on circumstances, Jack may possibly be able to come up with some money to buy something if it were what he wanted. Naturally the camp is non-profit, so money is tight, but it may be an option.

Also, if anybody had a mill that were actually usable (maybe with a little work), he might be able to pay for it, since it could actually be used to cut timbers and material for the camp.

At this point, any artifacts you might come up with might be of interest. Thanks for looking.  :)

Here's their website. http://campsunrise.com/

I'd prefer you contact them through me about this, rather than their website, so we can keep track of sourcing, etc. I'm sure that's the Forestry Forum way to do it too, especially in case any money changes hands.
