    Woodbridge Machine Works

    While hiking the other week I came across these pieces of rusted out machinery. I am not sure exactly what it is so if you know please let me know, “Woodbridge Machine Works” is engraved on it and it has obviously been there a long time probably decades. A search for Woodbridge Machine Works on Google doesn’t return much information. The first main photo above was enhanced slightly with the program Photomatix to brighten it up a little, the photos below are untouched/not modified.

    This appears to be the remains of saw mill machinery. Our Museum is working on obtaining the remains of a “Woodbridge Machine Works” saw mill outfit from a local farm. The name on the cross-beam & the lever mechanism look very familiar. Hope this helps, even if it arrives 7 years after your posting of the photos. Haliburton Highlands Museum.

    Did anyone receive our recent message? Not seeking accolades, but this machinery appears to be the workings of a saw mill. Our Museum recently obtained such workings, identically marked. It belonged to & was used by Art Parish of Haliburton. We hope to re-build it & set it up at our Museum. Hope this helps. Steve Hill.
