Le Sueur County Pioneer Power Sawmill
The 1890 Melounek & Deutsch sawmill built in New Prague, Mn. is busy sawing logs into lumber during the show. The building over the mill was built with viewing pleasure and safety in mind. The lumber is used for various building projects on the show grounds. This mill is a two man mill, meaning that besides the sawyer who runs the log into the blade, another person is needed on the far side of the mill to operate the mill set works.
Logs of any size can be cut into lumber.
Top saw used for cutting large logs.
Edger, for trimming off the bark on the edges of the board.
