Small Wooden Water Wheel that powers the saw mill.
There is a aparatus that takes the water directly from the large wooden flume and shoots it directly on this small water wheel.
When the water hits this small wheel there is about a 25' head. The wheel runs at a tremdous force and the horse power is significant.. Consequently, the attached driveshaft is powerful and supplies the energy necessary to saw the boads for the saw mill.
