Houthuizer Molen - Toothed

It was only on the initiative of the Lottum inhabitants, that the need to rebuild the mill was recognized. De Houthuizermolen Foundation, in partnership with the Stichting Het Limburgs Landschap, raised funds, secured permits and realized this vision. In addition to the Nationale Molendag and the Limburgse Molendag, there are also a lot of visitors on Saturdays and other days that the mill is open. There is a cozy cafeteria and an information display, both adding to a pleasant and memorable couple of hours spent here. â€‹

 

The dark stains on the teeth are the residue of beeswax - used to lubricate the teeth as they drive the engaging gears, without soaking in the lubricant.

Oh yes, a great lubricant, yet this wood must be pretty tough to take all the strains.
Interesting to read of the use of Beeswax for lubrication.

I also heard they used pigs grease like the one they did in Utrecht, remember he showed us. I am always intrigued about the history of these windmills, Ayush. I love the series and I love that you get around.

Another great "molen" picture. You could make a coffee table book out of this series.
