    The first commercial version of the shaping lathe headrig, designed to machine short hardwood or softwood logs into cants and flakes, was introduced to forest industry executives in September during a working demonstration at Stetson-Ross Machine Co., Seattle. Based on a concept provided by Dr. Peter Koch, chief wood scientist at the Southern Forest Experiment Station in Pineville, LA, the machine was built by Stetson-Ross under contract with the USDA Forest Service.
