Getting ready to put up my second mill

Post by Billt »

Will be putting up my second mill next week. 1925 A612. This mill was apart and in a building since the 1960's. 99%complete
Still has the part numbers stenciled on the pieces. Also owners name ( I think) from Clayton Wisconsin.

Nice. Not many 612s out there.

They (windmills) can become addictive. You’ll likely have a 3rd, 4th, etc. as time progresses.
