The Steam Engine from Nysted Sawmill

The process of setting up the steam engine

 

The pictures above show the entire process of setting up the steam engine from Nysted Sawmill. You can see the casting of the flywheel pit, the foundation for the steam engine, the installation of the engine, and the mounting of the flywheel and the bearing pedestal.


In order for the steam engine to work, a compressor is needed, and the museum has been looking for one of those. Several parties have shown their goodwill in this connection, and the result is that the company Kaeser Kompressor A/S has donated a brand new compressor for this purpose.
The pictures were taken towards the end of 2007 and in early 2008.
