Pulleys, wheels, belts and driveshaft.
Everything found in the power house (basement area) here at Metamora Mill.
The main powered shaft is directed to subsequent shafts and each of those are then directed upward into the mill.
Once the power is transferred up into the mill all the milling equipment can then start functioning.
The grain is cleaned, ground, processed, elevated up and down and after the process is complete the ground grain is then bagged or barrelled and ultimately sold. This, the power house, where the turbine and or water wheel creates the energy on the main shaft, is the focal point of all milling equipment.
