Old Fashioned, Steam-Powered Sawmill

(Video Link)

An old sawmill, powered by the steam engines of two tractors, slices through logs. Watch these men turn trees into lumber while Death mercilessly spins just a few feet away. Gerard Van der Leun comments:

And then.... at the end.... he jumps up on the last log with a chain saw just to make me feel small and weak and all girly.

Just waching that clip made my fingers very nervous, but that's nothing compared to how they make cedar shingles.

Watch as this guy grab the recently cut shingles just a fraction of an inch away from a spinning blade without even looking.
