Work started on sack hoist

Posted on

Saturday 26th November
Work progressing on the sack hoist - mill volunteers Ian and Peter have uncovered the original bearing and after some hard work have cleaned out the bearing and are starting to re-assemble the sack hoist.
Now know what the lump of wood we used for leverage was for - it was the original sack hoist lever arm, full of wood worm as always , but we have been able to rescue the steelwork.
Sails turned this morning after a little persuasion from Mr Bellamy and his crowbar.
