At the MER 2016 Convention in Durham, North Carolina, the James River Division will once again award the Pride of Dixie plaque. It will be for the best portable/backwoods sawmill in the Judged contests.
 
Some suggestions for that sawmill. Clock gear for blade, a small pulley on the shaft for a PTO from a tractor (not modeled) a piece of stained paper or a rubber band for the PTO belt. All of this mounted on an old pick up bed trailer(Sylvan Models) or scratch build a chassis and table. Tires from an old model car/truck.
 
Let's see lots of sawmills in 2016.   Signed, Chuck Hladik
