Thanks Sprucebunny. Is that a J5? Looks awesome! Mine is a SW48, first winter with her, works pretty well for skidding logs. Another project that needs cleaning and paint.

Brian,if anyone can recognize the brand of mill it probibly will be from that beval gear receeder on the carriage.Most older mills were locally built,chances are a local sawyer would recognize it.Don't rush, the woods are full of old abandoned mills ask around,their all close enough so you can mix and match parts.At times I had the parts from three or four mills around, cherry picked the best stuff.

Thanks Frank, I have always got my eyes open for anything that might be of use, they seem to be getting more scarce. Heard a few that have gone for scrap. I am gonna put together what I have for now, since it seems to all be functional, just some crudness to it. I can take care of most of that though. I do have one I might have a chance to look at in the near future.
