Hello everyone tonight

Jay and Jim--thanks for your comments--

What I am wondering also is there anyone looking in that might be considering historical mill reconstruction, or should I be posting in other domains?

I really like it here, and I have a real gut feeling that many like yourselves enjoy dropping by

Just to carry on a bit with my topic the bearing that connects to the offset crank on the "Rose Wheel" or what I refer to as a "horizontal Barrel wheel" is quite a complicated wooden split bearing, it is adjustable as it wears, is water lubricated, and can withstand vibration and stress if it is well constructed

I have to go right now but will be back to expand the topic's technical features
