Peterson Portable Sawmills

Screw Propelled Vehicle

Fantastic screw propelled vehicle

This fantastic video was sent to us by Robert Ritchie from Thorold, Ontario Canada which he found when browsing the OFN Community Forum.

Robert responded to our request for newsletter reader’s favourite photos. Although this is not a photo, we have never seen anything like it, so we wanted to show it to you too! The video clip speaks for itself.

Robert has recently retired from The Niagara Parks Commission where he was Parks Naturalist for six years. He has always had an interest in timber, beginning in 1968 when he trained in forestry.

Robert is not yet an owner of a Peterson Sawmill but is a big fan, and says that ‘when I get my Peterson mill I will saw the widest boards possible!”

Robert has been the Canadian Trustee for the International Wood Collector’s Society (www.woodcollectors.org) which was founded in 1947, and currently acts as the Chair of the Wood Museum Committee.

Thank you very much Robert for sharing this amazing video and your story with us.
