Lucas mill is imported to UK from the antipodies (NZ Ithink) it is a
progression from the USGravelly travelling mill of the seventies.
Instead of having a travelling engine with two perpendicular blades to
cut out the dimensioned boards it uses I blade with few teeth ( to cut
down power consumption?). The blade is rotated through 90 degrees and
cuts the board free on the return pass.
