Sawmill Demonstrations

Come & See The Mill in Operation

Demonstrations run daily during “Sawmill Hours” for the Fair week! Hemlock Fair’s sawmill is an Ireland #6 circular mill made in the late 1930’s by the Ireland Machine and Foundry Company in Norwich, New York. It has a 52″ diameter blade with 44 replaceable teeth and is powered by a 100 horsepower, 6 cylinder International diesel engine. We can saw logs up to 24″ in diameter and 18 feet long on this machine. A crew of six people is required to operate the mill efficiently.
