Post by: ga.player on June 12, 2007, 10:29:30 PM
i recently found an old sawmill in the woods, that belonged to my great grandfather. I found on one of the pieces "Corley 01. does anyone have good pictures of a complete corely 01 model sawmill, so that I can try to set this one up?

Welcome to the forum! I don't know anything about Corley sawmills, but I bet Corley5 might be along to help you out. ;)

Welcome ga.player!  I don't have a clue to your question, but I was wondering, what part of GA are you from (where do you stay at?? ;D)

I presently live in Columbus, the sawmill is in Douglas. I realize that some pictures would be helpful, it will be a couple of weeks before I'm able to return to Douglas to take the pictures.

Welcome to the Forum, Ga.Player!  That's sure an interesting find.  I know diddlysquat about those old mills, but I'll sure be interested in following your progress.  Is that an all steel mill, or did it have a lot of wooden parts?  What sort of shape does it appear to be in?

You might want to  contact member/sponsor Mike_P and order some RustReaper.  I'll bet you're gonna need it! :D  It seems kinda pricey at first, but a little goes a long way, so it is cheaper in the long run. :)

I'll look up my Corley sales lit and scan a pic for you.  Might be a couple days though I'm in the middle of haying  :) :)

Hey and thanks for your responses, This is great. I'm glad to hear of others in my near area that are operating mills. I'd be more than grateful if I could see some that are setup and running. I am willing to help for a day to learn.
