Wodden bevel gear

Stereo recording with more sound from the whole building. Sound of the wooden bevel gear. This gear moves horizontal power from the waterwheels to vertical power in the mill stones.

This watermill is placed in Röttle nearby Gränna in Sweden and it’s called Rasmus Kvarn. The mill was built in 1660, but back then it was used as a forge for weapons. In 1690 they rebuilt the house to a flour mill. The mill was used until 1923. 1979 the local Preservation society started to use the mill again and it has been used since then, mostly as a tourist attraction. Rasmus mill is a part of Grenna Museum.
