  • Logging is the process in which certain trees are cut down by a lumberjack or machine, such as the feller buncher, for forest management and timber.

Early Logging Tools (Schiffer Book for Collectors)
Early Logging Tools (Schiffer Book for Collectors)
Over 330 clear color photos display the wide array of equipment once used to log high timber that are now eminently collectible, including axes, saws, filing tools, springboards, oil bottles, undercutters, wedges, marlin spikes, drag saws, and venerable chainsaws. Historical photos display towering giants of old growth forests where loggers toiled decades ago. An informative text provides useful information on cleaning and preserving the antique logging tools, descriptions of them, values, and a bibliography. This book will be treasured by all who share a fascination for logging as it was done by the lumberjack, bucker, and high climber.

Shell tankers plotfacility KH Photoplot
Shell tankers plotfacility KH Photoplot
picture by ? Shell's D- N- M- class vessels very often equiped with the Kelvin-Hughes Photoplot system (also known as Kelvin & Hughes rapid processing photographic radar system) as a plotting aid or 3rd radar indicator. Picture shows typical lay out in chartroom with SAL-speedlog, timer, VHF radiotelephone handset. Side by side with conventional radar display (at extreme left visible). The basic idea with KH Photoplot was to take a photo (on 16mm black and white fine grain Ilford movie film) of a small radar picturetube inside this machine. Develop, dry and project it on the screen above. This is the plotting table surface. The film processing involved 3 chemicals in bottles, to develop, fix and clean the film. Chemicals are fed to the film with airpressure. Air also dried the film, and drying was often visible during projection. All this within a few seconds. The small radar PPI tube could be observed directly through a lense. Exposure time of the film could be varied and in this way an automatic plot of all targets was achieved. i.e. a 1 minute , 3 minutes, 6 minutes plot etc. If compensated for drift, which is easily done, the result is a perfect true motion plot of all (moving) targets nearby. Sure thing, KH Photoplot equipment needed a lot of care and maintenance. At least once a week. But given the proper care and maintenance it worked very well. In thick fog, in Dover-strait, KH Photoplot was at its best, and much appreciated on the bridge of a VLCC. When neglected (which happened on some ships) it was in use as a very expensive coffee table. With film and photography as a hobby it sure was fun working on it. With some ''intensive care'' it was always possible to get it running again. Its hissing, clicking, clacking noise was pure music to me. In its time, the 60's, it was a very clever concept. KH's mechanical true motion computer worked very well, Other KH marine true motion radars used the same mechanical computer. (see the picture at center left) In the summer of 1965 i spent a few weeks with KH radar school at the head of the Pier in Southend. With Jimmy Pharez teaching. A couple of Icelandic Coastguard members also attended. They told me: in the ongoing ''cod wars'' as from 1958 onward , the Icelandic coastguard uses KH Photoplot to plot foreign trawlers. The 16mm film was presented as evidence in court. Identity of target was established by low flying Coastguard aircraft. The offending trawler and patrol aircraft together on Photoplot film ! This worked very well. Officers sometimes asked if and how they could get rid of the film, when involved in a shipping accident. I told them "yes you can", but also pay attention to the gyro course recorder, echosounder, engine telegraph recorder, ships log and anything else that is being recorded. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Photographic Radar at Sea Article by D. W. Sims the radar officer in S.S. Canberra. The first shipboard installation of the Kelvin & Hughes rapid processing photographic radar system aboard the P. & O. liner "Canberra". The advantages of this type of display are, in summary: (1) A full size plotting screen (in this case 24-in. diameter) is available for direct plotting. (2) All operations may be carried out in broad daylight without the necessity of having to accustom the eyes to a dimmed PPI. (3) There is no radar hypnosis. Information is presented as a solid, steady picture at the end of each cycle. (4) A permanent record of the radar information is immediately available for playback at any later date. (5) Several officers may view the screen at the one time and discuss the plot while it continues uninterrupted. This is a very favourable point in a large vessel of high speed where three or more senior officers may wish to know at all times exactly what is happening on the radar plot. (6) By using a processing/exposure cycle of seven seconds or more, a build-up of picture strength, true track of vessels, &c. is possible

Dr. Dunbar accepted a position as a payload officer/flight controller at the Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center in 1978. She served as a guidance and navigation officer/flight controller for the Skylab reentry mission in 1979 and was subsequently designated project officer/payload officer for the integration of several Space Shuttle payloads. Dr. Dunbar became a NASA astronaut in August 1981. Her technical assignments have included verification of Shuttle flight software at the Shuttle Avionics Integration Laboratory (SAIL), serving as a member of the Flight Crew Equipment Control Board, participation as a member of the Astronaut Office Science Support Group, and supporting operational development of the remote manipulator system (RMS). She has served as chief of the Mission Development Branch. In 1993, Dr. Dunbar served as Deputy Associate Administrator, Office of Life and Microgravity Sciences, NASA Headquarters, Washington, D.C. In February 1994, she lived in Star City, Russia, for 13-months training as a back-up crew member for a 3-month flight on the Russian Space Station, Mir. In March 1995, she was certified by the Russian Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Center as qualified to fly on long duration Mir Space Station flights. From October 1995 to November 1996, she was detailed to the NASA JSC Mission Operations Directorate as Assistant Director where she was responsible for chairing the International Space Station Training Readiness Reviews, and facilitating Russian/American operations and training strategies. From June 1998 to July 2003 she served as Assistant Director to the NASA Johnson Space Center (JSC) with a focus on University Research. From October 2003 until January 2005, she was Deputy Associate Director for Biological Sciences and Applications. From January–September 2005 she served as Associate Director, Technology Integration and Risk Management. Dr. Dunbar retired from NASA in September 2005 to serve as President and CEO of the Seattle Museum of Flight, Seattle, Washington. A veteran of five space flights, Dr. Dunbar has logged more than 1,208 hours (50 days) in space. She served as a mission specialist on STS 61-A in 1985, STS-32 in 1990, and STS-71 in 1995, and was the Payload Commander on STS-50 in 1992, and STS-89 in 1998

This Was Logging
"Someday" Big Fred Hewett used to say in his Humboldt Saloon in Aberdeen, Washington, "these pictures will show how the boys used to do it." He knew the day would come when the Pacific Northwest's "Big Woods" would be only a fog-blurred memory and the cry "Logs! More Logs!" would no longer be heard ringing up and down the skidroads. With the superb views of timber photographer Darius Kinsey, comprising more than 200 pictures made from wet plate celluloid negatives, 11" x 14", and processed by his pioneer wife, Tabitha, author Andrews dramatically presents a panorama of lumbering's great days in these woods from 1890 to 1925. Shown in sharp detail are the first axes, 12-foot crosscut saws, the first oxen and horses, the first donkey engines and "lokeys". Then the story continues into the "highball" days, the high production period with the steel tower skidders and miles of steel rigging.
