    On September 12, 1975, twenty-five sawmillers from throughout North America watched as a new headrig produced cants of various shapes and a usable residue of flakes from logs of irregular contour. The demonstration at the Stetson-Ross plant in Seattle, Washington, was the unveiling of the commercial model of a design introduced by the Southern Forest Experiment Station 10 years ago.
