The Salamander is a sawmill in leidschendam, The Netherlands. The mill was built in 1777 as a replacement for a burnt-out predecessor from the seventeenth century. It was in operation until 1953. The rotating movement of the mill is transferred to the sawing section with the help of drive belts, where luifers attached to the crankshaft set the two saw windows in motion. The Salamander has a crankshaft with four crutches, but only two of them are used. The two saw windows are linked to this. From the end of the 19th century, a steam engine was used to be able to saw even in windless conditions. This steam engine was fired with waste wood.

De Vlieger is an oak, thatched ground sailer on the Essepad in the Dutch town of Voorburg. The mill was built in 1621, for the drainage of the Veen- and Binkhorstpolder. The mill replaced a mill from 1461, which in the opinion of the Water Board of Delfland and the local residents was in a bad place. However, the new building did not solve the problems, and in 1654 it was decided to build a second Veenmolen that was given the name De Nieuwe Veenmolen. In the 18th century the name was changed and the Binckhorstmolen was named after miller Arij de Vlieger.
