I once saw a video from south of the USA border where a guy, "an artist", did a similar thing to carve wood, not just cut it in half. Scarey!

sixties - ours was flat belt driven off the pulley of the 1949 Massey Harris 44 - it would cut wood all day running at idle on a gallon or two of gas. OSHA would have a BIRD today!!! No guards on the blade or the belt

Back then, communications weren't near as rampant as they are today. Also people were more liable to keep their problems, deaths, injuries, whatever within their own specific communities. At least, that's the way it was in the communities I lived in.

Tella-woman. The old gossip-mills were every bit as effective as Facebook in spreading the word - whether it be a farm accident, someone's cattle getting out, a sick cow, a "new arrival" or whatever. The "party line" and "rubberin" that went along with them made sure there were few secrets.

Serious accident's, sure. Losing a finger or cut that required a number of stitches, not so much, at least not in the community I lived in. But then, I've always been a city boy and maybe that type of atmosphere leads people to be more isolated than the open farm community towns where everyone knows everyone because there were a limited number of people to know and you came across everyone on a regular basis.

When I was a kid - our neighbour used a 1928 Durant to power their saw. What's left of the old car, sits today, in our fenceline. John T.

Wow ! Those straight 8's were big old thinigs - our other neighbour had a '47 Buick .. I'm pretty sure that the neighbour who used the Durant to power the buzz saw - went through the clutch & tranny <and through the differential ?> to a home made belt drive. John T.

If you think accidents didn't happen, you never were in a town where the big industry was a sawmill or shake mill.

No, you said they couldn't have been very common. DAGS on "sawmill accidents". I suggest they were very common in previous years and are still a relatively frequent.

the things they are considering safety problems were not a concern in the early mills. High noise and welfare conditions do not affect putting your hand in the blade.

**** Lock-out procedures for interrupting mechanised production processes, for example when freeing jammed timber

It is like the 1890 house on PBS, where they could not get approval for a family to living in the house because of a standard issue 1890's stove.

front of a massy Ferguson tractor. It was on the loader and could be raised and lowered. It was driven by a big canvas belt that was powered by a power take off wheel on the side of the tractor. Yep, our tractor came with the ability to drive equipment with canvas belts. Just like the old water wheel and steam engine factories. Only this was portable.
Talk about bridging to eras/technologies. Brings back memories. (codespeak for I am an old fart)
