NBE was so busy last year, that I did not have time to develop any new scanners. So I skipped getting a booth at the Portland Show. Timberline Erectors has been kind enough to let me call their booth home. I will be at the show all three days, so if you want to get in touch with me, try booth 1606 or call my cell phone: 360-481-1980.
Last year NBE did too much:
with Dynavision M24 heads
Edger Optimizer with M24 heads
Two McGehee Log Processors with NBE profiling heads
50 profiling heads for other companies.
Linear Edger upgrade (this makes #10)
Curved Gang upgrade
This year does not look so busy, so I hope to have time to retool myself. Here are some ideas:
a GUI front end on my optimizers.
Make scan heads accessible via web browsers.
Add autorotation to log optimizer.
Find someone that will let me slew band mills on a sharp chain.
Simple log rotation scanner for single length systems.
Log Bucking optimizer.
Smart Unscrambler Scanner.
Since new ideas never make money, I hope to get enough log processor, board edger and board trimmer projects to help make the payments for my new boat.
If you get on the web, have a look at the board edger
we did with GME and PIC:
Thanks for the good year, I hope to see you in Portland,
