Mill Identification C to D

Additional pictures were added to this page on 4/28/17.

One of the most fun aspects of acquiring and restoring a windmill is the treasure hunt itself. The "hunt" often includes identification of remnants or partial mills as many are acquired as gifts from relatives, neighbors or friends or purchased from local farmers and ranchers cleaning out years of accumulation. As a result we are often contacted to assist in the identification of a mill as knowing its manufacturer, model designation and size are important first steps towards finding parts for its restoration.

While some mills, like those made by R.G. Marcy as the Red Star or Kenwood, were copies of those made by other prominent manufacturers, most mills have unique visual characteristics beyond part casting numbers. Windmill manufacturers were always looking to create a special feature or uniqueness that would separate them from their competitors and attract new buyers. Others did it to insure their place in future sales of replacement parts. Sometimes it was the shape of the tail vane, or the shape of the bonnet. Perhaps it was a sail brace/clip, wheel arm or the configuration of the wheel hub that the manufacturer thought made their mill "the best".

We have created this website page as educational help in narrowing your search identifying your lastest acquisition or the parts you are missing. While it is impossible for us to offer pictures of every windmill and its every part, we are hopeful these pictures, along with our other gallery pages, will help confirm your research or what others may have told you about your mill. This page is updated frequently as we acquire additional pictures that fit this format.
