DAVE TO THE RESCUE!
We have been having some issues with the engine that runs the mill while we wait for permission to rebuild the dam. It was leaking in various places..(kind of like a strainer..) Several of the board members worked on it trying to get it back into operating order.. to no avail. Someone suggested that David Jewell might be able to help, so we gave him a call. He happily came to the mill and looked things over. He discovered several things wrong and began to put his talented hands to work to fix it. He replaced the plugs and points and condenser, freed up the distributer advance, rebuilt the carburetor, welded the governor rod and found a couple other items that were not critical, but he will fix them in the future.
What a guy he is. When he sent the bill, it was only for the parts he had to replace. He donated his labor. We appreciate his kindness and generosity more than we can say. Ben's Mill Trust LTD is always pleased with people who take a great interest in the restoration of the mill. Thanks David!!!!!!
