Nordalen saw - It is a living industrial memory from the 1880s.
The Hobøl river was one of the country's busiest stretches of river in the last century. The river gave power to many businesses.
Power had to be used where it existed. From the water wheels, the power was taken to the many machines with shafts, belts in ingenious power transmissions. Splashing, damp and raw, dangerous, singing and noisy was the working environment in the mills, sawmills and foundries. Magazines were made for magazine stoves, machines for industry and agriculture. It was turned, crates, kickers and sleds were made. At Nordalen sag, it almost looks as if they left work yesterday!
