Thumbnail of Mill  project

The Mill is the complex integration of simple machines. It brings to life the occupations that built Connecticut. It stretches student creativity to examine the ingenuity of our ancestors in the detail of 1/4" scale. Water drives three machines in the Mill.

Build a 'working' mill with a waterwheel that drives the line shafting that runs the trip hammer & drill press. Make a winch and a clamp to add to your simple machines.
