Mill Stones, Wooden Cap, Hopper, Damsel and Shoe
Wolf Creek Grist Mill runs Two Sets of 42" French Burr Stones
Here you can see the wooden cap on the set of stones and the four-sided hopper. Below the hopper are the damsel and shoe.
The shoe funnels the grain into the eye of the stone. The damsel shakes the shoe to keep the grain from clogging.
Mill Stones Prepared to be Dressed and Sharpend
This is an amazing display of two mill stone that are being prepared to be dressed and sharpened. The bed stone is the one that is laying horizontally. The stone that is set vertically is being held by a hook and crane. The vertical stone is the runner stone and is ready to be set with the cut side open so it can be dressed. The round, wooden cap on the wall is typically set on top of the stones when they are ready to be grind. This is a spectacular display for everyone to see just how that hook holds the stones to prepare them. Each stone can be over 1,000 pounds. The hook and crane are always in the immediate vicinity of grinding mill stones. This display was rescued from Rummel Mill before it was collapsed. An historical display.
Crank for the Hook
This screw for the hook and crane is metal. Originally the screw was made of wood.
