For interest the station I was on had 36 mills,mostly Metters and Southern Cross. When I arrived 2 were pumping so it was a busy few years getting most of them pumping. Our nearest neighbor,35 miles across the paddock had mostly Comets which I helped with sometimes. We had pulled a 12 foot mill down to refurbish the head as it had been pumping since 1935. He had new bearings turned up in Perth out of Jarrah to replace the original Hickory bearings. When we pulled it down we found that there was hardly any wear on them and the mill went back up with the original bearings.
