  1. I have a wooden piece from an old grist mill. It is 43 inches interior diameter and 15 1/2 inches wide. I believe it went around the two mill stones. I have had it over 30 years, had planned to make it into a table but never got around to it. Now I would like to possibly find a home for it to be displayed or even used. I am asking you to steer me in the right direction on someone to contact. It is in excellent condition. I have no idea what kind of wood it is. The wood has been notched to make the wood bend to make this circular object. Pictures can be provided. Thank you.

  2. Looking to donate old tools to Chester Ranlett Museum. Pls call or email. Cell is 508-246-4002 in South Orleana. Thanks.

  3. Thanks to member Irwin Sitkin for helping to organize this day at the Ranlett Tool Museum. It was a fun day for all who attended!
