Corinth mills
« on: January 08, 2012, 08:34:12 PM »
In my search for a mill to scratch that itch I was told by a friend that an inlaw of his had his fathers  Corinth mill for sale for 800 possibly less.     It in storage and I want to tale a few pics to see if  yall might know if anything is missin.     I m   looking at changing the carriage drive to hydraulic travel.    THe wood is all gone so what im looking at since I can make squat from wood that I would  use Steel for my frame work and other mill part that were wood.   Also do any of yall use Corinth Mills.

I operate a 48" Corinth for an antique tractor club. It was built in 1974, so it would be much newer than yours. Three head blocks and a 50 foot track. This mill is very well built and a pleasure to operate. I intend to convert the carriage to hydraulic drive this year.

I had an experience a year ago where one of my helpers was injured when we were belting up with a steam engine. (The belt pulley on a steamer rotates backward when in reverse.) One of the two flat belts that are tensioned to move the carriage climbed a flanged, flat-belt, pulley and caused the corresponding belt to tighten. The carriage advanced even though the control was locked in neutral. The carriage struck my helper and resulted in an injury that required 12 stitches.

It would also simplify the operation as you mention. In my case, there is a hydraulic pump in place to operate the log turner. I just need to add a hydraulic motor along with hoses, flow control, and a control valve.

best part about hyd drive is saw can not grab log like belt feed also if hyd pump is powered different from mandrel you can opperate carrage with out blade turning makeing fine tuneing things safe. Mine has a rotary valve  so if in gig back I can offbear and beat carrage return before it bottoms out
