Lot of info there!
The continuous feed type stampmills do have screens. The simple light weight batch stamp mill often don't have the screens. I'm interested in small light weight mills due to the fact of the ground it will be on (up to 55 degrees) and will be moving the mill from time to time.This isn’t really how stampmills work. They have a screen which is installed in front and sometimes sides of the stamp battery. Water and ore are added in a continuous feed.
Just an suggestion on how to mill the timbers the club needs to rebuild the mill. Use a chainsaw mill very cost effective if you can cut some local trees.
This is the mill my ECV chapter has. I’m on the Stampmill crew. We’re hoping to get going on a rebuild this summer the wood needs to be replaced as the woodpeckers have destroyed it. In the video you can see the tappet on the left stamp stem engaging the rocker arm to the feeder.
It appears there is not much to a simple stamp mill that stamps single batches of materials. I know this is not the best setup however it appears to be faster then I thought.
Wow I really like the three stamp mill. Thanks.
If you happen to come across more information / dimensions on either stamp mill please PM me as I would love to see any information.
They are both in the Trinity County Historical Society museum in Weaverville, they also have a functioning steam driven two stamp mill.If you happen to come across more information / dimensions on either stamp mill please PM me as I would love to see any information.
Looks like lead babbit bearing on the first stamp mill with a interesting containment cup over the crushing area. Looks like babbit or bronze bearing on the larger 3 stamp mill. Lot more machining on the larger mill. Cast cams.They are both in the Trinity County Historical Society museum in Weaverville, they also have a functioning steam driven two stamp mill.
Looks like it's never been used very nice old piece of iron.
