The processes that drive the Tagus river watermills, just like those of hydraulic wheel mills, were of great complexity, as there was a need to transform the vertical movement of the wheel or mill into a horizontal rotation movement.
Due to the fact that there were reels and entrails, made of wood, the breakdowns were much more frequent than in the caster mills.
Due to the great power of the driving force, it was enough to break a tooth, so that all the entanglement was undone. Hence the miller's need for close vigilance in the operation of the mill and in the regulation of the mill's tile.
