Default Trying to identify a Sawmill

Hello all,

I have a old circle mill without a I D nameplate, hoping someone might see a part of the mill that could identify it? Appreciate your thoughts.

I have a friction drive American just like this one, itís missing the carriage parts though. It belonged to my uncle that raised me, he actually had cut all the studs in the home I was raised in with it. It was powered by a straight 8 Packard engine..

Somewhere in the dusty recesses of my memory I seem to remember that Farquhar used a mandrel bearing set up like the one pictured.

Maybe not a Farquhar. I have a 20Hp Farquhar engine and thought I had the company literature here somewhere. Can't find it right away, so the web to the rescue.

I have a Gaar Scott mill that needs restoration.
