The NG&SL Gazette ran a series of articles titled the Sawmill Chronicles by Reg Shaffer back in the mid 80s. The whole set of 40 years worth of Gazette magazines has been re-issued a DVD.
Here is part showing the list of articles in that series.

I did send Bob a note asking about the format of the files. I want to keep some issues on my iPad.

I got a reply from Bob. The magazines are read in a proprietary reader. He did say that you can print or output 'pages' to PDF. Now I need to save the money. I've bought 3 years of the magazine off of ebay... darn, I could have had them ALL for about 3 times that money.

Realize that all those "parts" are for a "full size" sawmill, not a small steam powered backwoods kind of mill. Really, all you need for one of those is of course a large circular (or bandsaw) saw with carriage and perhaps a cut-off saw for board lengths. Planers, edgers, and the like would be found in a big "finished lumber" sawmill.
Those Gazettes are EXPENSIVE to get ahold of now. I am kinda taken back that there is such a great cost for something that contains info which can be found by researching the net and the local library. A subscription to Timber Times (http://www.timbertimes.com) seems to be a whole lot cheaper and has the info you need plus historical/modeling articles.
Remember that anytime something is "made for model railroaders", the price rises far above the actual value!

I have no connection with anything and I gripe about everything...

Back in the day...
...I used to DROOL for 2-months, waiting for the new Gazette to arrive.

Of course, then finding that MAYBE one or two articles were my kinda jazz.

I gotta say, I haven't now bought a magazine in living memory !
That's a ton of spare cash to spend on materials !!

With 100 photos of even the most crazy, nuts R.R. stuff the world has to offer...
...only a 'click' or two away...
...the death of the magazine has expanded my horizons beyond belief !

All the fantastic stuff on Freerails, is just the tip of the iceberg.

:moose:

Si.

THERE IS a prototype for EVERYTHING !

'I believe' ... as they said on the X-Files !

The paper copies of Gazette aren't too expensive on ebay. About 20 bucks for 4, shipped. But, 50 years of them would add up. The DVDs have every page of 50 years of magazine (including predecessors of Gazette) they say. I'm still waiting to pull the trigger. I sure do enjoy the copies I have. The magazine is new to me.

I can't remember if I already posted this, but...

It is possible, and quite simple to save the PDF files from the Gazette archive. I have about half of them on my iPad now. Soon I will have them all and be able to reference all that good stuff at any time.
