Default Homestead Harvest Days 2012

Here are a few videos I took over the weekend at Homestead Harvest Days in Highland, IL. There is a video of the Beckemeyer family's 20 Hp Advance sawing some pretty good sized white oak. Afterward we put our 30 Hp case on the sawmill. It kept up pretty good for an engine that small although the sawyer made it work pretty good too. i got some video from a distance because the wind was carrying just right and the sound was awesome. This was the first time we really worked it since getting it running in August.

Nice video. Nothing like having a cup of coffee and listening to engines do a little work.
I do have one question. Since moving to the Midwest and attending several shows I have not viewed a belt on the mill with a twist yet. How come? From where I come from a twist is always put in towards the machine of operations.

The engine is now runing the way it is suppost too. Or as known as running over. The pressure of the belt pull the shaft against the bearing the oil is going the right way to lube it. Across belt the shaft is turning the wrong way and oil is going behind the shaft. Remeber these old guys had a reason for every thing they did. And if you need to tighten the belt all you do is push the clutch in alittle and move the block. You don't even have to stop.
