The Eurobodalla Woodies are back in action for the first time in months with their new bandsaw mill in action slabbing pine slabs. Having lost their shed, equipment and timber supply in the fires this was the first step towards building a new supply of timber which can eventually be used to make new bench framing and tops and internal lining when their hoped for new workshop eventuates. Two groups will be trained in all safe operational and maintenance procedures before commencing operation. Todays group shown in the photo is the first led by Malcolm Mc Donald. The mill purchased partly by a Federal government grant received before last Christmas was assembled just before the recent lockdown restrictions and has had its first trial today. The Woodies now have a small supply of Spotted gum to add to the pine milled today. The timber which can be milled to any size required will now be racked and stored to dry before being turned into useful items.
