On July 30, 2012, Mom, Becky and I went to preview a 1918 Davis and Furber carding mill scheduled to be auctioned off on August 4.
The mill weighs about 8 tons, can make a wool batt 60" wide and from front conveyor to rear batt roller measures over 19 feet long!
Here's Mom's reaction to the possibility of my purchasing the mill:
Becky's reaction to the mill was similar to Mom's. She was overwhelmed by its size. I, on the other hand, walked into the shop and my jaw dropped in wonder and awe! What a beautiful machine and much smaller than I remembered it.
Here are some more photos of the mill:
