A tractor's eye view of making shingles the old-fashioned way.
This is one of the most clever machines ever made. If you haven't seen one, it is fascinating. It cuts tapered shingles from a short log. After the saw cut, the machine tips the log for the next cut, and indexes the log by the shingle thickness for the next cut. The saw cuts through the log, and the process repeats. The operator just catches shingles.
And re-loads logs.
Oh yeah. Makes sure the tractor doesn't run out of fuel.

Where is OSHA? Probably undercover somewhere.
Maybe the guy under the straw hat?
