Steiner Museum
« on: June 22, 2003, 11:34:03 AM »
A couple weeks ago Tammy and I went for a drive and came across the Steiner Museum. Its two miles north of the town of fairview, on M 33 at Reber Rd Oscoda county. Why I did not take more pictures I dont know. There was a ton of interesting logging and milling stuff there. The museum started as the collection of a local man in that county, Earl Steiner, (1902-1979) and perpetuates his interest to preserve   "the way it used to be". An 1885 schoolhouse is also on the museum grounds. Here are a few of the pictures I did take.

Some I wish I would have taken were of a two man saw that was formed in a large arc. Almost a half circle. Never saw anything like it. There was also a set of log tongs that must have opened to 6 foot.

Here is a little set of "Bigwheels" that were leaned up aginst the wall in a dark barn on the property.


Do ya'll know what this is?



This Peavey was monstrous! Its was in the Dark barn too. Had trouble getting the picture light. There were a couple more hanging on the wall a little smaller, but this brute had a handle at least 12 foot long.



Here were a few of the old burls that sat on the front porch of the museum. I would have LOVED to take these home...

Thanks for sharing, Jeff.  I have a stump puller that was used by a team of horses that walked a large Oak log in a hoolding bracket round and round.  As for the burls, I have several like the one in the foreground setting on pallets and all waxed up for rewa or turning.  When do you want one delivered.   They go for $2.00 a lb. and weigh in at approx 125-150lbs.
