WMWIT?

What Model Windmill Is It?

I haven't done this in awhile. I'll give a visual clue and as people guess I'll give more clues (either text or visual).

Looks like he internal bull gear on my Ottawa mill, but I'm guessing that ain't what it is.

Wooden mill, probably vaneless, perhaps a Dempster 3 or 4.

Dang Jud! How did you determine that it could be a Dempster 3 or 4?

The crank plate holes and the shipper bars beneath the crankplate looked familar. I wasn't positive since there are a few other mills similar to the dempsters but since the Dempsters are the most common mill like that I played the odds.

Jud, good guessing. You are correct, it is a Dempster. Now, is it a 3 or 4?

Ivan is right! It's a #3.

Can anyone name the years that it was made...without looking at THE BOOK? :?
