I have a single large wheel mill with “No. 3” as the only cast marking on the wheel itself. I was planning to take it apart and sandblast it, and I’m assuming the internal workings are relatively simple (no springs?). Someone painted it silver than blue. I have photos I can Email you. Thanks
Thanks for looking into that. I was planning to take it apart, sandblast it and get it back to working order. I’m assuming the internal workings are relatively simple (no springs, right?). It was my in my great grandfather’s general store in West Mineral, KS, so I plan to keep it.
And here is my response :
I think it is 1920 C.S Bell Mill. I’m not 100% sure on the year, but it is definitely C S Bell mill.
If you think this is something else, please help me identify this one.
