Old machinery

This piece of old machinery is in one of the old byres at Sandside.  I *think* it was part of a milling or threshing process.  There was a mill dam across from the house which would drive a water wheel for a short time which then powered this machine.  I took some photos and used some filters for "atmosphere".

Incidentally Charlie, the barn cat uses this machine to gain access to the loft upstairs where he sleeps sometimes.

Manufacturer label?

Made by J R Aim of Holm, on the Orkney Mainland.

This is probably where the shaft of the water wheel came through

    Please would you tell me the grid ref for this mill, or some other way of identifying it on the map?
