Connecting Rod

SKU: 12786
Iron connecting rod from a stone sawmill made by the Ty-Sa-Man Machine Co in Knoxville TN. Ty-Sa-Man stands for its owners: Tyler, Savage and Manning, who mainly manufactured horizontal saws until the late 1970s. Connecting rods date back to Roman sawmills and are used to create a lateral movement from rotating waterwheels. This piece was salvaged from the Old Cold Storage Warehouse in Arrington VA and was featured in season 2, episode 11 of the DiY network show “Salvage Dawgs”.
