TIDE MILL MACHINERY

The design of Tide Mill machinery has evolved through many centuries and has an elegant simplicity but it is powerful and effective in the hands of a skilled miller.

Wood and iron are the core materials used for the machinery in the Tide Mill with wood being the dominant material used. Three pieces of machinery are cast out of iron but with wooden teeth. Two pieces of machinery are cast out of iron in their entirety, the wallower and the great spur wheel. Wooden teeth engaging with the metal cogs allows not only for a smooth operation but also for easy replacement due to wear and tear rather than replace an entire iron casting.
