No. 1 Lane sawmill and Chase shingle millI
« on: August 01, 2019, 10:24:12 PM »
I have read, understand and agree to the terms of posting an ad on the Forestry Forum.

Our local Historical Society has a Lane #1 right hand sawmill that we don't  need any longer.  The mill is disassembled and stored in a water tight semi box trailer.  It was originally run in a water powered mill so there is no power plant.  All the pieces are there to put it back together.  It's been 15 years since we took it apart and out of it's original home and in the trailer box so I can't recall any specific dimensions info but know it' s all there. I don't have any pictures since it's in the box.

We also have a Chase shingle mill that is a parts machine for the most part.  Most of it is there for the metal parts, the wood is beyond repair.

The price is best fair offer.  i got them a reprieve from the scrap yard for a few weeks. So what it's worth in scrap metal price would be a reasonable offer far as I am concerned.  The mills are in Windsor, Maine.

I think I may be able to get some pics of the shingle mill it is close to the door.  I will see if I can find a model number while I'm at it.

I can't get to any model numbers that I can see. here is the photos I could get.  If it's something you are interested interested in let me know in a week or so it's headed to the scrap iron dealer.

Dear Riker,

I hope I'm not too late, just coming across your posting.

I am part of Hatch Mill Group which cares for the Hatch sawmill in Marshfield, MA. Formerly a sash sawmill, the sash saw was replaced in the 1870's with a Lane mill. It was removed a while back for the preservation of the structure and is missing parts such as the set works. This lane mill may be very helpful to the group if it's still available.

Also, I'm looking at buying a water-powered sawmill and would like to set up a shingle mill. The sawmill is a chase mill and chase turbine, so the shingle mill you've posted is a natural fit.  

Any chance either still survives?

The lane is still available.  We have a set works but it was acquired separate from the mill but we are told it's the set works that the mill takes.  It still in storage until spring as the price of scrap metal tanked and I convinced them to hold onto it for what the scrap value was.

The shingle mill is gone.  I worked out a free deal to a young local guy who is rebuilding it.  Come to find out it was missing a couple significant parts.

Hi Riker, I'd like to put you in touch with the President, Dean, of the non-profit Hatch Mill Group, INC. who's a former saywer and second-generation one at that. He will be interested in the Lane mill for repairing the Hatch Mill. 
He's shut down his sawmill business but you can see a video of it at https://www.mindingmaking.org/cut_copelandmill. The Hatch Mill website is http://www.hatchmill.org/.  Dean can be reached at Alicecopeland     a t     verizon.net.
Hatch Mill maybe a great solution!
